Bottle sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours a golden brown with nice off-white head. Aroma is a nice balance between caramel malts and resinous hops. Taste follows, nice piney notes of the chinook, good malty sweetness as a background.

BOD 1/28/14. Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a nice dark ruby accent giving an orange/red appearance. Tremendous head with a thick lacing that lasts. Nice nose of citrus hops - grapefruit, mango, orange - with a touch of peach over a nice caramel sweetness. Medium bodied with a smooth texture. Slightly above normal carbonation level. Unfortunately, the taste is not as good as the nose. It is a citrus pine mix over a predominate bitterness of the same. The malt is there, but has more of an over toasted biscuit character that lacks the sweetness of the nose. The finish is smooth and leaves an aftertaste of tart grapefruit rind bitterness. In short, good but not great.

jkwood04 (3850) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 5, 2014
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours deep brown/amber with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of toffee, floral and piney hops, some caramel and pale malts, and light dough. Aroma pretty similar with a nice blend of the hops and malts. Average texture. A pretty cool beer for the style.

On tap at Bohemian Bull during happy hour. Pours a nice amber with a decent head. Medium carbonation and decent mouthfeel- medium. Nose is floral (chinook) with some sweetness as well. This one balances the sweetness and hoppiness really well- something the amber genre rarely seems to get right. Still on the sweet side but decent finish. Really good for an amber. Liked it.

Draft. Nice citrus aroma with hints of caramel. Good citrus kick up front, then the robust malt backbone kicks in. Filling, drinks a lot bigger than the ABV.

bu11zeye (11940) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 15, 2013
(22oz bottle) Pours a clear orange body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of pine, herbs, grass, and caramel. Flavor of grass, pine, herbs, caramel, and bread with a dry, bitter finish.

Mora2000 (5650) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Orange amber pour with a white head. The aroma is full of pine from the hops and some toffee. The flavor is similar with a lot of resinous pine and toffee. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 13, 2013
On tap at Mellow Mushroom, Charleston. Handsome russet-amber pour, fairly bright with a medium head to it. Nose is quite floral, with loads of hops and malt sweetness. Faint nutty notes among the general hoppy flavor, not quite so intense as many hoppy reds but the balance is admirable for all that. Enjoyable.

Plovmand (6348) - Helsinge, DENMARK - APR 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy amber reddish with a bid fluffy and steady off white head. The aroma contains notes of caramel malts, fruity hops and some spicy berries. The flavor is spicy fruity and hoppy with dark caramel notes. Dry hoppy finish. Berries and some herbal grassy notes. Great sessional. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
