12 ounce bottle pours an orange copper flavor with off-white head that dissipates quickly. Pine and citrus aroma not huge in the nose. Nice hop bitterness with a bit of malt to balance. A bit of an apricot flavor. Not bad but not great

BVery (5983) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Bottle. Clear orange to light amber pour with a small soapy white head. Aroma is bready malts, resin, light citrus. Fairly oily palate. Tastes slightly boozy, hops are well balanced by the malts. Lots of malt in this.

czlowiekwiadro (200) - POLAND - JUN 3, 2014
pisane z pamięci więc może być trochę niedokładne. zapach intensywny, chmiel, cytrusy, słodowe nuty. kolor ciemnego złota, lekko zmętnione. piana dość skąpa i nie za trwała. w smaku dużo ciała, ale i spora goryczka, ziołowo grapefruitowa. czuć nuty karmelowe.

bookman10 (626) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - MAY 24, 2014
This just didnít work for me. Pours a fairly clear, light golden yellow, with smallish head. Aroma is very grassy and bready. Flavor also dominated by bready/biscuit and too sweet and boozey.

GIJOE (598) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Amber pour with a frothy white head. Nose is floral hops. Taste - bitter, but mellow and pleasing. Medium body, soft carbonation. Decent IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fidelis83 (1910) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Clear old gold pour with a 1 finger creamy off white head. Aroma is loaded with Crystal malt, some caramel, citrus and a little spicy hops. Flavor is biscuit, caramel, a little toast and lots of sweet Crystal malt, a little earthy grain and some odd, hot booziness, maybe fusel alcohols, or phenols, maybe something else. Medium body with a slick, syrupy feel, light, sharp carbonation and dry, boozy and acidic finish. Itís not all bad, but itís pretty strong in booziness and boozy off notes, the Crystal malts donít help either.
