Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales. Slight haze on a amber color with a bubbly white head. Earthy and floral hop aroma backed by a biscuit and caramel maltiness. Flavor is very similar with a lingering bitterness. Very simple, but enjoyable and a easy drinker.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a soft amber tan with two fingers of creamy off white head. Lots of caramel in the nose. Some pine resin and citrus rind to balance with hints of burnt sugar on the edges. Flavor is a touch muddled and confused. I get bitter citrus and pine resin with some grassy notes. Other than that there is a ton of caramel malt. Way too much for the style. I found the same issue in the IPA.

Pint at Triangle Wine, Morrisville. Good aroma sweet, citrus yet a musty earthy scent. Great looking beer. nice brownish orange, has shine about it. Good head and lace. Bitter flavor. Medium body. Smooth creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish that lingers. It’s good, has a harsh slightly like a cleaning product.and a real grapefruit finish. It’s fine. Nothing great but real drinkable

Keg @ Hi Wire. Amber pour with a small head. Nose of pine, floral hops, caramel, shag tobacco. Taste is slightly soapy. Red apple. Peach and berry. Sort of muddled. Medium body, slightly oily. Not awful, but there’s so many good APAs around these days that this needs some
Tweaking to keep up.
