A quite nice beer, not what we expected at all. Pours a bright orange with a thick white head. Smells of vanilla and caramel. Taste is very thick, sort of like their Fred. More vanilla and figs, with a malty finish. Had on tap at the brewery.

On tap @ Hair of the Dog during RBSG. Love the melon fruit malt and yeast combo. Cant tell its lagered, seems like an ale. No harsh alcohol at all. Low bitter. Thicker body. Not cloying sweetness and fruit make this thick. Golden color with a little lacing. Soft carbonated body. Surprisingly awesome beer. I haven’t said that about HotD in a long time.

brokensail (13757) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 2, 2015
On tap @ Hair of the Dog. Hazed orange pour with a white head. Fruity aroma of blueberry, pear, and peach. Pretty sugary, though. Some brown sugar, maybe banana, and a lot of caramel. Light grassy bitterness on the back end. Lots of caramel, toffee, and perhaps some butterscotch. Slight pear and a blueberry. Hints of citrus and pine. Maybe some cooked apple. Pretty nice.

mcberko (10077) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2015
On tap at Hair of the Dog, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out grassy notes, some herbal hops and biscuity notes. Flavour is quite robust for the style, with grassy hops, sweet cereal malts, and logo herbal notes. Very well-balanced and robust. Really nice stuff.

Prufrockstar (1589) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Draft at HOTD with huge thanks to HOTD for today. Clear amber. Caramel, syrup, sulfur, brown sugar, herbal hop presence. I don’t know why I passed this up before, because as usual HOTD doesn’t disappoint.
