AGAquino (658) - Toronto, Ontario, - NOV 18, 2012
From notes. On cask. Pours slightly cloudy orange with a nice foamy off-white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, pine and floral bitters; some alcohol as well. Flavour is very bitter; noticeable citrus, tangerines and resin, with a sweet malt backbone. Nice cask mouthfeel, slightly astringent, strong alcohol, but quite balanced.

Pours a slightly hazy amber-copper with a nice big sticky white head that leaves good head. Aroma is earthy, caramel, grapefruit, toffee. Flavour is caramel, toffee, toast, earthy, grapefruit, pine and a medium bitterness. I’m guessing harder water would make the hop bitterness pop more but this beer is really smooth!

Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a hazy copper with a dense off white head with lots of lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel, toffee, grapefruit, citrus hops, pine and resin. Taste is caramel, resin, pine, grapefruit and a well balance of hops and bitterness on the flavor that’s never astringent. Great double!

Bottle shared at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Tal Levi for this bottle! Nice shiny clear deep golden to amber with an off-white head. Aroma of malt, a bit of caramel and lots of hops with zesty tropical fruits and pine. Flavor has some chewy malt with some sweetness and a bit of caramel, fruity and piney hops and a big bitter finish. Rounded mouthfeel. Really good and very well-made.

Hazy amber pour with an off white head. Nose is citrus, floral with a touch of pine. Big hoppy citrus floral flavor that goes on; ends with a nice bitter aftertaste.
