On tap at Fast Eddie’s pool hall during date night poured into shaker pint. The appearance suffers due to the pour - no head and super cold. The beer itself is a clear copper and there’s some sticky lacing left after each sip. The aroma consists of citrus and floral hops over top of caramel malt. Citrus juice and biscuit sweetness taste up front with floral and citrus peel bitterness in the middle which mixes with caramel malt in the finish. Medium-light body, a touch thick/resinous, a notch below moderate carbonation, semi-dry finish.

Can from AmmersinO, Vienna. Clear, golden to amber body, with big, frothy, white head. Aroma of citrus, passion fruit, strawberry, pine, candy, grass. Taste is pretty bitter, with grapefruit, pine, grass, biscuit. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, with a medium carbonation and it finishes bitter, dry, with lemon zest, grass and herbs. Nice one, quaffable, with a nice fruity smell and a good hop bite in taste.

psabotka (36) - - APR 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear burnt orange. Decent citrus and hop nose. Ok bitterness up front but not as much citrus as the nose would indicate. Good malt balance, mouthfeel a little thin for my taste, but I'm partial to dank doubles and huge hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
