Bottle from Beer world Kingston.... A nice lightly cloudy all day drinking ale. The pleasant hop alternates from yeast to hop and hop to yeast dominance several times during the delightful time frame of consumption. too bad its so damn pricey per bottle.

NikkTwist (1519) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2012
Draft at Monks. Poured a powdery cloudy orange with a fizzy foamy head. Pithy grassy nose. Taste is nicely blended and complex. Green vines. Wet oak. Kumquats. Crisp and fresh. Fizzy on the tongue. More body than expected. Warms to a bit of a sweet aroma but maintains a dry taste and finish. Very nice actually.

TwoSipDip (8898) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Mile High Liquor Denver. Pours a bit hazy, golden orange appearance with a nice, full khaki head. Quite potent, spicy and fresh, herbal, chewy herbal yeasty, just a touch citrusy aroma. Carbonation is a bit strong and zippy. Potent grassy, very herbal, fairly dry grainy flavor. Maybe a bit of citrus, but mostly a grassy, herbal flavor. Interesting and pretty tasty.

Pailhead (4607) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle: The aroma has light caramel, fruit, and herbal/spicy notes. It pours a hazy (bordering on cloudy) dark orange with a large creamy off-white head that has great retention. There is a lot of soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of caramel and faint citrus. The finish has some moderate herbal and spicy notes with some light lemon peel.

redlight (2316) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 15, 2011
Draft @ redlight redlight. Light fruit and grassy notes on the nose. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a thin white head. The hops really shine, earthy bitterness with subtle grassy notes with the malt picking up towards the end with some fruity notes. Leaves the mouth feeling dry with hints of citrus and grass.
