UPDATED: MAY 29, 2008 Bottle... Lightly hazed amber ale with a mid-sized, fizzy, off-white head. Doughy, citrusy aroma with notes of whole grain bread, lime and grapefruit. Well-rounded flavor.

Tastes of oranges, grapefruit, and caramel. Lightly bitter with a light sweet balance.

On tap at Columbus Brewing Co on 12 March 2010. Ginger colour. Not much head. Fairly standard APA. Fair amount of perfumed hops on the nose. Clean enough. Rather soft mouthfeel. Pleasant drinking without generating too much excitement.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear copper amber with a very big airy off-white head that leaves sticky clumps of lace behind as it subsides. Aroma has a nice fresh piney hop character with some mild citrus and metallic notes. Body starts with a semi-sweet toasty caramel maltiness turning more bitter and resiny, with some iron metallic flavor before a drier, lightly bready finish. Would probably be better if they’d check the mineral content of their water. Thanks to OhioDad for the bottle!
