Hazy copper color. Fairly bitter hop profile. Some decent malt character in the background but hops predominate.

This poured a red color with a white head. Aroma was of fruity and dank hops. Flavor was similar, light toasty caramel, but loaded with fresh hops and only slight alcohol presence.

Draft sample at Hopgeist 2014 pour dark gold with copper hue. Nose fresh floral, resin, sweet malt. Taste nice bitter up front, sweet, nice flavoring and flavoring hop. Slightly astringent bitter finish. Really nice hop profile.

Beautiful copper red appearance with thick head that retains the whole glass. Slightly malty hop bite with lasting earthy bitterness.

cheap (4172) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2014
A darker brownish ale from a tap but not dark like a porter, more like a dark iced tea. A mild BO aroma greets my nose. Thin creamy head. Slight co2 and there is this big bitter kick in the face. Especially on the first gulp, hah. Yes, this is ropey bitter mouth coating burn. Happy hop BS. Quite rude overall for this lager lover. Yes, big lick in the jaw, wew.

Tmoney99 (10974) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Tap sample. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that was lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate earthy and citrus aroma. Medium to abundant body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where surpassed.

DialSquare (2849) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2014
On tap at Giant Eagle Market, UA. Amber pour, light tan head. Aroma of sweet malt, citrus, caramel. Tastes are resiny citrus, herbal, rye. Easy, drinkable.

Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized, creamy beige head. The aroma and flavor have nice tangy citrus, grapefruit, resiny hops (even stronger with the aroma), caramel malt, moderate bitterness, good body and mouthfeel, lightly toasted.
