22 oz. bottle from Hayduke and shared with the East Side bottle Liberation society. A gold pour with some copper and a white bubbly head. Nose was full of tangerine with some grain. Tangerine, pine, and caramel flavors.. Rye came late as a subtle undertone. A very well balanced beer that was quite pleasant to drink.

From a 22 oz bottle purchased at Market of Choice in Ashland, Oregon, this poured a clear rich amber color with a two finger creamy tan head with very glue like lacing rings. The body is on the rich side of medium, with a smooth and slick mouthfeel. The nose is caramel malts and and citrus. The flavor is very well balanced between the malts and the hops with a citrus and floral flavor bitterness in the long dry finish. A really nice beer and one I am glad I have a second bottle of to send to a friend in trade.

KLCC Microbrewfest ’09: Nice dark amber pour with a smaller beige head. Aroma is sweet; caramel and citrus. Flavor is rather malty and again sweet with caramel. A good amount of citrus with a light floral hop takes over in the tail. Nice.
