Pours copper with tiny film of head. Aroma is caramel, dough and faint hints of citrus. Taste is sweet with sticky finish. While cold this was solid, however after warming up some it left a terribly funky aftertaste.

Kinz (3282) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 13, 2010
Sorry I missed jcwattsrugger Friday night at Capital Alehouse Innsbrook, but the firkin was still kicking Saturday after the half marathon! Medium amber, slight head dies fast, slight haze. Aroma softly of caramel and citric hops. Flavor is a match - although hoppy, not particularly bitter. Nice notes of grapefruit and pineapple, plenty of caramel accented malts to balance. Nice. Appropriately low carbonation for a nearly day old firkin.

decaturstevo (5002) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - NOV 11, 2010
Orange pour with no head or lace. Faint malt with very light citrus. Sweet malt, light resiny bitter, bread and a hint of abv. A tad thin and watery but a very drinkable beer.

Big thanks to jcwattsrugger for the sample. Growler pours clear copper with off white head. The soft aroma offers up fresh floral hops, spicy hops, some orange peel and mild malt graininess. The taste is similarly smooth with citrus tangelo, pithy grapefruit hop flavor with floral and spicy hop flavors around the edges. I get a modest level of hop bitterness coming to the surface every now and then. Certainly an easy drinking fresh tasting brew.

HoppityHop (171) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 22, 2010
A nice surprise from Cricket Hill. As usual, it follows their philosophy of making everything a "session" brew, but it’s tasty. Pouring a cloudy pale yellowish shade with a very hoppy aroma. Flavor is slightly bitter, but not overly so for the style. No malt backbone to speak of, which is what keeps me from rating this good beer higher. It also tastes way too similar to many of the other Cricket Hill ales.

Chalsk (1064) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - OCT 22, 2010
On tap at Cloverleaf. Pours a clear amber color with a white foam head. Has an aroma of citrus and caramel. Has a sweet malty start with a hop hit. Big malt backbone tempers the hops. Masks the freshness of the wet hops. Light mouthfeel.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Orange-red, whitish cover. Aroma is light, delicate floral and fruity hops, caramel. Taste is caramel, light citrus. A good drinker.

Suttree (5134) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 16, 2010
From a growler (Thanks, John!) at 2010 Pre-Brewer’s Jam tasting. Coppery orange, bubbly body but no head. Faint aroma, but seems piney and, I don’t know, clean - does that make sense? Anyway, really nice crisp hop flavors up front. and a solid but unobtrusive malt base. Really tasty and easy to drink.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 15, 2010
2010 pre-Brewer’s Jam tasting. Pours orange gold with almost no head. Aroma is fresh, floral hops, some orange and caramel. The flavor is lovely fresh floral hops, some very mellow bitterness, hint of caramelized sugar. There is a slight bready note in the aftertaste. Very tasty.

Draft at the brewery. Pours clear amber brown. Nose of fresh hops, citrus and light malts. Taste of very fresh hops, light pine, light malts and citrus. Very clean brew.
