Enjoyed at the 13th Annual Southern Brewers Festival. Probably the best of the day. Reddish copper pour with light carbonation. Pine and citrus peal are fresh and inviting in the aroma. It’s a bit musky too. Big hop flavor with tangerine, grapefruit, and citrus peal. Decent malt holding it all together. Very enjoyable. Medium body (a bit on the watery side) with a dry finish. Good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was probably the best beer I sampled at the Southern Brewers Fest. A copper color with some nice lacing on my plastic mug. The aroma consisted of caramel, grapefruit, and perfume. The flavor is rather bitter but had a nice malt presence as well. I picked up some lemons, grapefruit, caramel, and brown sugar. Overall this was a good one.

Summertime Brewsfest. Amber on the pour. Sweet, fruity aroma. Simply fantastic. I don’t want to try and pick it apart. Delicious hop aroma. Bitter, waxy, fruity, sweet flavor. Just great. All of their stuff is just great.
