Draft at tap room. Poured clear dark amber hue with medium frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Medium aroma of sour citrus hops and sweet malt. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Well balanced flavor of malt, citrus hops with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce can, canned on 11/07/2014. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy orange/amber with about an inch off-white head. Head retention is good, and there’s a lot of lacing. The brew smells like citrusy (grapefruit, citrus peel) and floral hops, and caramel and bready malt. I think the taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but there’s also a bit of orange noticeable too. Great balance between the hoppy and malty flavors. There’s also a nice hoppy bitter finish, too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit coating and is well carbonated. I liked this brew, I might have to pick up a sixer of this soon. Got to try it at $1.67 a can, definitely worth picking up!

On tap at Daily Growler, UA. Copper orange pour, white-ish ring. Aroma of toffee, caramel. Tastes of sweet malt, little toasty. I’m not at all an amber fan, but this was non-offensive for the style. 6.6

Can. Nice beer, flavorful. Not too heavy on the hops, as expected. A little bit of caramel, nice malt backbone with a little bit of a bite.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Amber pour with a frothy head. Malt aromas are overpowered by the hop presence. Big hop flavors (almost tastes like an IPA) keep the biscuit and caramel malts from even having a shot at showing up. Way too hoppy.

A pretty nice amber, maybe similar to say CCB tocobaga? Mildly hoppy but well balanced.

Can thanks to DrSilverworm. Pours a cloudy amber color with a small foamy head that fades to a bubbly ring and leave some minor webbing. Aroma is big on biscuits and bread with hints of flowers and toffee. Tastes pretty biscuit-y and incredibly dry. Big floral and earthy hops in the bitter finish. I really don’t like how dry and earthy this is. Makes it pretty hard to drink.
