COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full bodied, orange hued ale. A variety of toasted and caramel malts create a nice backdrop to the aggressive citrus and floral hop notes.

Nicely balanced. Poured a toasted amber out of a tall boy can. Thick foamy head. I agree with their own description..."unexpected sweetness". ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A hazy copper beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is cooked apples and honey. The flavor is fruity with a sweet malt backing.

On draft at Milwaukee Ale House. The beer is dark copper with a quarter inch of off-white head. The aroma offers resinous hops, pine, earth. Hop flavor followed by subtle notes of mint and herbal tea. An odd assortment. Not entirely off-putting, but certainly unusual. Some bready notes as well, finishing with a semi-sweet bitterness. Interesting. One and done for me.

Pours a hazy amber color with a tan head. The smell is apple, caramel, vegetal, resin. The taste is pine, caramel, apple, fruit grapefruit ending dry and bitter. Light/medium in body with average carbonation. Fairly sweet and malty.

On tap at the Milwaukee Ale House. This was definitely the best of my visit there. A little on the thin side in the body, but a solid version of the style.

Draft. From notes. Grass and grains, slightly earthy hops. Slightly bitter taste. Meh, it’s ok.

Nero55 (751) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Pint Can. Copper with small off white head. Aroma of resinous and pine hops with some malt notes. Medium/full body, medium/heavy hop bitterness with a nice creaminess, but not much of a malt backbone.

BeerKurve (509) - - MAY 17, 2014
Mildly hazy orange with a thin foamy head, abundant lacing and very little carbonation. Aroma of citrus hops, caramel malts, and mild floral hops. Flavor is more of the resin side with some grapefruit and citrus hop notes, subtle floral hops and caramel. Heavy body with some mild carbonation. Pretty good.

Barnoloid (219) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Poured from can. Not overly impressed here, the hop profile is aggressive whilst forgetting to hold together the backbone with any discernible balancing notes.
