Keg @ CBC’s 1st Birthday Party. Amber color with no head. The nose is strong grains and light orange. A bit syrupy. The taste is light grainy breakfast cereal and general floral bitter hops. Orange rind and brown sugar. The body’s pretty light for the abv, prickly carbonation. OK.

Keg at Craft. Hazy amber beer, tidy white head. Smooth soft palate with fine carbonation. A beer of 2 halves if ever there was one. The first half is very grainy - raw malt - off putting. The second half loses the raw malt and has pleasant sweet hops, tangerine and orange and orange marmalade. Finishes semi dry. Hard to mark this one!

Sample at the Craft Beer Co. pours clear golden amber with a good off white head leaving some laces. aroma is intense hoppy piny caramel citric malty sweet raisins, very nice. Flavor was less than excpeted, much like the aroma but too flat and a bit one dimensional. Finishes with a good longlived bitterness and fruutyness.

Poured a golden color with a pine and off scent. Taste is major pine in the face with a little fruit in the background. Not to keen on this beer.

June 29, 2012 bottle shared by Brandon. Orange pour with some head that faded quickly. Aroma was faint hops and caramel. Taste was malt and mostly a piney bitterness but some citrus in there. Medium bodied, not much carbonation and not much aftertaste.

Nice beer, bit too dry and light bodied. It's like there isn't enough beer to hold the hops and hops aren't as biting as a result

Grifo. Vaso de ½ Pinta. Saboreada en el Freiburg en jun´12 con toda la banda: Manolo, Robert y Juanjo. Color amarillo miel y apariencia nublada. Espuma blanca, algodonosa y copiosa. Corona persistente y copos en las paredes. Aromas de malta Crystal e intenso lúpulo. Ascendente y contundente amargor al primer sorbo equilibrado por maltas moderadamente tostadas que aportan suavidad y voluptuosidad al paladar. Cuerpo medio/intenso y carbonatación moderada/baja. Textura cremosa y oleosa, como queso. Toque frutal en el intermedio. Largo y resinoso final. Sabrosa.

Lasting crown, spots on sides. Crystal malt & intense hop aromas. Increasing sharp bitterness at first sip then crystal malts balance the flavor & provides smooth & voluptuous palate. Medium to full body, moderate to low carbonation. Oily & creamy texture, cheese-like. Fruity touch in the middle. Long resiny finish. Flavorful.

On tap at Beer Temple. Nice golden body with medium head. NOse is malts, and hops and plenty of pine. Really hoppy and bitter taste. The hops are plentiful. Lots of bitter, also in the finish. A bit too much though. Hops overkill.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Beer Temple. Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma of freah malt, caramel and light grassy hops. Flavour is massive pine, grass, fresh malt and caramel, but unfortunately spoiled as it’s strangely sickly. Bitterness is high with medium sweetness. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Disappointing, it’s close to being really good, but something is really not quite right.
