Bottle... Mostly clear and deeply golden ale with a mid-sized, white head. Good retention. The faint aroma presents subtle notes of red grapefruit, pine resin and toasted malts. Medium-bodied with ample carbonation. The flavor offers heavily bitter grapefruit rind and traces of toasted malts and grains. Big on hop bitterness; small on hop flavor. Lengthy, bitter, acrid finish. Bottle courtesy of StFun!

12 ounce bottle courtesy of queenholly. Thanks! Yay, finally a Flat 12 beer that’s not a gusher! Pours a hazy orange color with a large frothy head. Good head retention. Aroma of big citrus hops with a bit of pine. The taste is big citrus, pine, resin hops. Pale malts. Hop agressive, refreshing, fairly fresh. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness. Nice beer.

8/11/12. GTMW. Orange pour with a nice khaki head. Really nice hopped up aroma with plenty of citrus and pine in there. More subdued hop profile in the flavor and more of the maltiness comes through. Not bad!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle served in my GI IPA tulip: Nice glowing coppery hue with a long lasting head and good lace. The aroma has heavy notes of orange rind, onion, catty, resiny, pink grapefruit and light mango from the hops. Very minimal pale malt notes. The taste is quite straight forward and one note. Heavy alpha acid bitterness with some citrus tones. What malt character there is is almost chalky. The mouth feel is aggressive and biting. I must say I am disappointed with this brew after the enjoyment that is Flat 12 Porter. Just drinkable.
