Bottle - Sweet molasses from the malts with some flowery hops in the background. Small head and cloudy brown hue. Citrus hops throughout with a bitterness to match. Some malt notes lurking in the back, but not too pronounced. Will definitely try again.

Bottle, shared at RBAG Summer Session 2012. Murky brown with golden highlights, crowned by an average off-white head the leaves minimal lacing. Very hop-forward aroma, perfumey citrus with that signature hard-to-pin-down fruit quality I often find in Centennial hops (berries?... not exactly, melon?...closer maybe). Nice hoppy palate too, medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel, but marred slightly by a minerally/dusty quality that I’ve found in a few Mikkeller brews (I think its a yeast thing). Quite nice though.
