On tap at Venti’s South. Big malty background of caramel and other sweet flavors. Some pine and citrus but not very bitter. Finish is kind of bland.

Bottle: The aroma consists of sweet citrus, peach, and the slightest hint of toffee. It pours a dark amber with a touch of haze with a small white head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of fruit/peach and a touch of caramel. The finish light-moderate grapefruit and pine. It’s light-medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours dark copper with a creamy/bubbly whiteish head. Firm aromas of citrus and pine. Flavor is mild roast malt with a lot of pine and citrus. The flavors play marvelously against each other. Very flavorful. Very bitter finish.

manuchampions (1238) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 20, 2012
Pours a cloudy amber with ample tan head that reduces to a thin cap of shaving cream like foam. Aroma is restrained citrus hops, slight malt back. Taste is decent piney, citrus hops, resinous, with a medium malt support. Finish is a lingering hop bite on the tip of the tongue. Not bad, perhaps better than the average suggests.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Hazy amber, rocky beige head. Aroma of dark fruit, toffee, mild hops. The draft is a little more hoppy, but still fairly mild. Taste is mostly sweet with some citrus and mild bitterness.

Tap at the Laurelwood Public House. Colour... cloudy amber (with lots of stuff in suspension) with a very pillowy head. Nose... very nicely balanced between citrus and pine with yeast as well. Palate... a generous mouthfeel with grapefruit up front and pine towards the rear and surges of malt to balance it all out before the dry finish.
