(bottle - 12 oz) Copper pour with a fluffy white head. Lots of citrus in the aroma with some floral hints and pine resin. Caramel malts and pine resin in the flavor at the start with a flowery and dry hop hint in the middle. Dry and slightly bitter at the finish. Quite good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle, no dating on the bottle that I could find. Served in a pint glass, this one was a gusher as soon as I opened the bottle. The head was huge and I had to let it settle down for a while before I drank it. The brew smelled mostly like citrusy (citrus peel, grapefruit) and pine hops, and some caramel and bready malt. I thought the taste was pretty much just like the aroma, but with the addition of some tea, earthiness and dried fruit. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s coating and is well carbonated. I liked this brew a lot, but at 5.5% it seems a bit strong for a "session" ale. But that’s not a complaint at all, however I would like to try this one fresher next time. I got this bottle from a friend so I really have no idea how old this bottle was. But it’s certainly worth a try!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY ---Clear dark amber, white head cover, strings of lace dots. Taste is a quick shot of caramel that is followed quickly by a solid hop presence that stays right through a medium finish that has an unsweetened tea thing going on the back end. A big brew for 5.6%, and light enough to have several.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a dark gold with a high, pillowy, lacy, off-white head. Nose is tangerine, red grapefruit, and honestly not much else. Some hops up front, followed by mild citrusy sweetness. Carbonation is low. Finish is, again, mild with a little hops and an interesting fresh strawberry note. There’s just not a lot to this beer -- I kept wanting a volume control so I could turn it up.
