Bottle from Half Time web order. Pours clear golden with a huge creamy white head.Aroma of orangey hops, moderate sweet marmelade, strong and inviting aroma. Thick smooth mouthfeel. Sweet & thick marmelade taste, subdued but noticeable piney hops, creamy and nice to drink, me like.

Bottle. Very delishious. While between the 60 and 90 min, I’d still rate both above the 75, but it’s still an outstanding beer

About a six month old bottle purchased to enjoy in my hotel room. Syrupy sweetness light flower ness and herbs. Mouth finishes dry. Actually pretty decent with the age, wonder if it would be as good fresh.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours from a bottle a cloudy dark amber with a pillowy off-white head. Not sure what I’m missing here. Aroma is floral hops, maybe Cascade? Flavor is a nuanced, but underwhelming sweet hop blend. Finishes fine.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours with a solid inch of white froth floating atop opaque orangish gold. Head dissipates relatively quickly. Resinous citrus nose that is somewhat overwhelmed by an inherent sweetness. Tastes include peaches and sweet maltiness. Subtle complexity as hops creep up throughout, but are not as prevalent as one might imagine. Very crisp and drinkable with nice warm finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a murky honey color with an off white head and good lacing. Aroma is fruity and toffee sweet with some biscuit also. Taste is similar with some caramel sweetness and some pineapple and apricot fruitiness. Also get some biscuit flavor and you can detect the maple in the background but it is by no means pronounced. Finishes with a hint of bitterness. Has a velvety mouthfeel with a medium/full body and moderate carbonation. Interesting like most DFH brews but would rather have a well made straight ahead IPA.
