Aromas of citrus and pine. Clear orange with a lasting, off-white head. Dry and bitter, with toasty malts and subtle smoke, like oven-toasted bread, very balanced. Medium bodied with good carbonation, and finishes with a load of hops.

bytemesis (3518) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 25, 2012
Tap. Pours clear light amber with a medium head that lasts. Light aroma - faint citrus notes and a litte maltyness. Flavor is malt dominated, sweet and bready with backnotes of citrus and pine and a mildly bitter finish. Overall a good beer, but a little strong on the malt.

Had this during the 2011 Shenandoah Throwdown, bottle I found when we took a little day trip to Charlottesville. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Big citrus hops, soft malt and hops. Big earthy hops, juicy and earthy. Loads of hops throughout, big grapefruit bitterness permeates everything. Toast and grapefruit bitterness, long and soft on the finish.
