Pours out clear light red with creamy foam. Taste is sweet malts with bitter hops. Nice crisp hoppy finish. Very drinkable for high alcohol of 9% a good value for a sixpack. Another great beer from this brewery.

Yummy. Very deep brown amber with a thin foamy ring. Nice deep pineapple hop aroma and a nice balance of malt sweetness. Taste still manages to finish crisp and with a good bitterness despite a somewhat heavy malty sweet flavor. This is a really nice beer. It’s got a little something for everyone and still comes across as balanced, smooth and flavorful. Also noticed no trace of the big abv. Very nice work!

I love this beer! Sweet syrupy caramel aroma, beautiful orange/red color. Sweet, hoppy, floral. Smooth, hides the alcohol content well, I can drink so many, is dangerous :)

12oz bottle from The Beer Store Wilson. Light amber hue, murky clarity with mostly lasting fizzy off-white head. Good lacing. Strong citrus, floral, booze, light fruit aromas. Heavy bitter citrus and floral tastes up front with a heavy booze and citrus finish. Watery texture on the palate with a light-medium body. Solid beer.

On tap, came a red to balck color with very high carbonation levels. Very interesting and enjoyable beer. First impression is that of hop bitterness, then it glides into a mixture of flavors with some light caramel, cherries, and a noticable but light roasted character. On the drier side, and the alcohol was not that noticable.

Had this beer at mellow mushroom with rowen. Really good nice hop aroma and great taste. Well balanced for such a strong beer. Would definitely have again.

Hop bomb explosion- old ale or not! Caramel malt backed up by hops approaching a barley wine. Very good.

Drank from bottle. Nose is citrus, hops, and resin. Taste has a heavy orange presence a little sweet on the tongue with a dry and mildly bitter finish that doesn’t linger. Amazing beer

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2012 Pours a clear reddish color with minimal head. The aroma is sweet caramel malt and hops. Taste is a combination of sweetness and grapefruit. The finish is initially bitter and then there is some lingering sweetness. Alcohol is hidden well considering the close to 10% abv. I had to update my rating because after having several of these I would prefer if the beer was a little less sweet.

Nice amber pour with a good sized off-white head that laces well. Slightly acidic aroma of citrus, pine and grass. Very hoppy, bitter flavor with a good balance of some sweet caramel malts.
