Pours dark with sweet notes of malt on the nose but a nice hit of hops to keep it even. The hops really comes out during the mid palate and finished nicely with the citrus/spice notes.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from the tap into a pint glass.
The color is a hazy gold with about two and half fingers of white foamy head with some nice lacing.
The smell is a floral flavor with some citrus flavor. A nice mix of grapefruit and lemon is really nice.
The taste is pretty piney and has a great sharp hoppy flavor that is pretty enticing. I liked the good malty finish that evened out this beer and really made a great flavorful experience.
The feel of this beer was light and really even. There was some hops that wanted take too much of a stab at the easy drinking of this beer but it was all just washed away in the end.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at brewery. Pours a cloudy beigish red color with a small off white head. Nose intrigued me at first, kind of sweet and something I couldnt put my finger on, yeilds to some floral and spicey hop notes. Palate is slick with a syrupy feel. Flavors of light bready malts and some floral hop notes.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2009 tastes like a malty ipa to me. not super hoppy but hoppier than anything else i’ve had at CBC. similar to the always good tall tale pale but more hoppy and ipa-like. goes down easy... i could drink these all day.

Once again a straight forward beer from CBC. amber colored beer with modest head. Grain and bread aroma with some grassy hops in the background. could make a night of drinking just these.
