heemer77 (5158) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - APR 13, 2009
Deep gold body with a frothy, slightly off white head. The aroma is light with some orange peels and banana peels. There is also some hints of hay. The taste has Some bitter orange peels with some woody pine resin in the finish. There is also a little bit of tree bark. There isn’t much in the way of the malt, maybe some crystal a little bit of toasted bread crust. Sharp and bitter, I think this is unbalanced, but would be ok for hopheads.

Can. It pours an almost clear, a bit pale golden body, and a white head of moderate size. The aroma has piney, grassy hops balanced by malt and some beef-stock. Full-bodied and sweetish with flavors of citrus, fruits,a good dash of pinecones and a lasting bitterness. Lasting, bitter and hoppy finish. Easy to drink, really pleasant straight forward APA.
