Nearly clear orange gold with short lived white head. Aroma is musty pine. Half turn off, and half interesting. The mustiness is in the flavor too. The pine and orange rind comes forward. Not my favorite. Not horrible.

Quite funny to read some of the comments and the brewers own description. I’m alright with this. But I find it more like a traditional English bitter than an IPA. It’s malty and spicy and the hops are more piney/grassy and floral than citrusy. Noble hops I guess. Anyway, it’s decent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is golden with a small white head. Aroma is lite but pleasant. A very dry beer that has cool tropical fruit flavors but all the good gets washed by a iron/slate flavor that is a little off putting.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Backlog rating on 9-23-2012 (Bottle) The appearance of this beer is a sall off-white head that mostly diminishes, slightly hazy yellow body, slow rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt and earthy hops. The flavor is light bitter, citrus hops, caramel malt, and has a dry finish. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. For the style, this beer is not very hoppy/bitter tasting. The ABV is well masked.

Poured a hazy yellow color with a white head. Aroma has lots of biscuit with a little bit of skunk. Taste has a nice caramel flavor with a good amount of hay and citrus. A little bit dry with a hoppy finish. Overall decent.
