COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A sinister brew with a seductive balance of sweetness, resinous pine and citrus aromas.

PorterPounder (5200) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 5, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Apalachee - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling medium copper pour - quickly dissipating off-white head. Aroma has some molasses accents, a touch of kid’s vitamins. Flavor is slightly muddled with some heavy date-like fruity accents, some toasty notes, a touch of brown sugar. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Needs some refinement.

Beerenberger (1274) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Caramel, florals, honey, and touch of citrus constitute the nose. A clear orange-amber pour with a quickly disapearing white head and no lacing. Caramel, malts, and honey, make way for a nicely balanced citrus hopped finished. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, a nice balance of malts to hops with the former taking the slight lead. Alcohol content is well hidden - too easy to drink.

Cybercat (2991) - Georgia, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Comes out of the growler a beautiful, bubbly dark amber with a very thick and rather persistent pale buff head. Aroma is not strong, but invites with citrus, malty and evergreen tones. Pleasing flavor echoes the malty, evergreen and citrus notes of the aroma, making it seem rather like an IPA - an Imperial IPA, perhaps, what with its subtle alcohol nip. Texture is smooth, though a bit lacking in fizz and firmness. Don’t be lazy - drink ’er down!

degbert (1005) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark red-amber with a brief, cream-colored, large-grained, lacy head. Nose is golden raisins, spice, and black tea, with a faint floral hop overtones. Savory on the tongue; reminds me of an English old ale more than anything, with more black tea, spices, and smoky notes. No sweetness. Finish is dry and bitter. Good.

Poured a golden color with aromas of light honey, citrus, lemon and some light spice. Flavors are light and lemony, interesting beer not sure about this one.

GT2 (7898) - Carlsbad, California, USA - FEB 12, 2014
[ Bottle ][ RBWG Premeet ][ 12 or 22oz ][ RBWG Globe ][ Free ][ 2/6/14 ]
>> Clear, golden pour with weak foam. Sweet candy, old lemon drops nose. Taste is sweet, sticky, old, papery. Ick. Not for me.

Cletus (6329) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Pours amber with a thin white head. Smells of resiny hops, some citrussy undertones, some fruity hints, spicy. Tastes resiny, earthy, some citrussy hints, some fruity hints on the finish.

suprchunk (1955) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Orange-amber colored pour. Big frothy white head that fades quick. Plenty of lacing. Orange and lemon aroma with big notes of malt. Cereal and grain. Taste is a malty, big malty, flavor with notes of orange and raisin. Sweet finish with a slight floral presence. Very nice.
