Growler shared by Hopdog, thanks. Poured a hazy golden orange body with thin head. Aroma is of light citrus and malt. Light hop taste, sweet, low carbonation. Seemed to have alot of yeast - earthy tones. Soft, subtle with a smooth candy essence to it. Light lacing left.

Bottle shared by moejuck and spector at Columbus tasting 6 - Pours amber with a short offwhite head. Aromas of bitter grapefruit and pine. Flavor is grapefruit, pine, some floral notes with underlying caramel malts. Seemed a little watery to me on the palate and a little unbalanced to the hoppy side..

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2007 Bottle shared by someone at C-Bus 6: Pours a clear orange gold, with a white head. Aroma, muted citrus notes, and some caramel. Flavor, sweet caramel up front, earthy and citrus notes on the finish. There is a lot of bitterness in the flavor, and it does start to overpower everything else.
Re-rate: Much fresher bottle with some big grapefruit and pine notes, with a really nice bitterness on the finish.

Light citrus and earthy hop aroma. Murky golden brown body. Medium palate. The taste is very bitter with some malt--but not well balanced. The hop bitterness controls this beer too much. If you want a straight on hop attack--then this is your beer.

Another Captain Lawrence beers that Iím impressed with!

Thanks to hopdog for sharing this growler. Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with an average off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, hard candy, tropical fruits, orange and pine. Flavor of pine, grapefruit, lemon, yeast, caramel, biscuit, cereal grains and a decent hop bitterness. Lots of hop bitterness and flavor.

The initial aroma of hops is not overwhelming but pleasantly strong. In the first sip the hops assault the rear taste buds. The flavor is quite hoppy and smooth. A very nice version of a Double IPA, both on tap and in the growler.

Growler and hand bottle (both arrived the same day. What are the odds?) It poured a hazy amber color with an off-white head. the aroma was hop forward with earthy, sweaty, and citrusy hops. Nice caramel malt underneath. Hints of candy. The flavor matched the aroma except for more of the malt and less of the hop. medium bodied. Drinks nicely.
