3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle from emacgee- thanks again, Ethan! Pours a clear amber color with a three finger-thick, frothy off-white head that leaves a lot of heavy, sticky lacing. Aroma of sweet and bready malts, cereal grains, caramel, and earthy hops. Flavor has a ton of caramel malts, cereal grains, grassy hops, sweet resin, and some herbs and spices. Medium-bodied, with a malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Just a little bitterness. The hops are certainly there, but the malts really make this a cool beer.

pours orange, hazy.
aroma and taste, hoppy, caramel malts present with a light mix of citrus/pine hops.
Not overly boozy, but a nice warming abv sneaks up with the malts and cover the palate.

Growler courtesy of kp sampled on 1/4/07: Pours a hazy copper orange with a thin, wispy white head. Aroma of sweet, candy-like caramel malt has a citrusy hoppy presence. Body starts sweet and pale malty with nice fresh green piny and citric hoppy balance. A nice, fresh IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle thanks to brentk56. Pours a cloudy orange color with one hell of a thick white foamy head- be careful! The aroma is orange rind, caramel and lemons. The flavor is very nice; probably the most citrus I’ve ever tasted in a hop driven beer, lemons and orange, light malts. Wet. A nice mouthfeel. Enjoyable, a light bitter grapefruit finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Opaque and murky chestnut, with a small but firm head. The aroma is somewhat mellow, and the beer I easy-drinking. Mild citrus and some musty grassiness. (#4429, 1/1/2012)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This has a murky orange body with a brownish orange head. Serious lacing here. The aroma is rife with grapefruit, orange zest, and pine atop a strong sweet malt scent. Thick bodied, it has a sturdy caramel body with enough hop bitterness to make this hophead smile. The finish is a prolonged citric and pine bitterness. Not too shabby.

Growler at Immy’s Tasting on 7-22-06. Unopened and leftover at RBSG so I took this home and into the fridge it went. I believe chris_o purchased this - thanks Chris! Copper bodied. Nose is hoppy, malty, and citrusy. Taste is malt with loads of hops, pine, and citrus fruits. Body is medium-full and chewy. Light oily feel as well. Finishes with more furits (melon, pear and tangerine), sweet amlts, caramel, hops and pine. Nice stuff!

Orange, and rather syrupy looking, too. No head. Very heavy aroma of hops and alcohol. Thick and malty, with a surprisingly big caramel and brown sugar flavor, considering how hoppy it smells. Plenty of big citrusy hops, too, though. nice blending of sweet and bitter thoughout, and rather dryish finish. At 2007 Hickory Hops.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Poured a clear amber color ale with super large foamy head with great retention and super good lacing. Aroma of slightly bitter hops with a medium caramel malt backbone. Taste is also dominated by some caramel malt with notes of medium bitter hops. Body is a bit thin but carbonation is super great with no appearance of alcohol. I thought hops were a bit shy for the style and malt backbone could have more dominant.
