GABF 2006: Hazy amber color with a small off-white head. The aroma was hop foward with citrus and grass notes. Good malt standing right behind it. The flavor was mostly sweet malt with light hop flavor running in the background. Kind of mild on the bitterness in the finish.

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.

Thanks IBrew2or3 for the share. Pours hazy yellow with soapy white head. Nose is caramel, sugary lemon, lemongrassy spice, and citrus hops. Flavor is caramel, sugar, grass, and citrus hops. Medium bodied beer that lingers with hop bite. Nice.

Pours a peachy copper amber with a 1 1/2 finger creamy eggshell white head. Nose is weird, smells like rubber and mango, sharp and a bit phenolic. Flavor is sharp as well, fusel alcohol and spicy hops.

Bottle. Deep orange with spotty white suds. Floral, tropical fruit nose with big malty caramel backbone. Flavor is sharply bitter and leaves the mouth very dry. A little too heavy, messy and boozy for me.

Draught at the brewpub. Hazy orange color with thick, foamy off white head that laced the glass. Smells of cotton candy and hoppy grapefruit. Prominent malty caramel flavor accented by alcohol and citrusy hops. Slightly sweet with a pleasant grainy aftertaste. Carbonation is on the low end. Very little hop bitterness.

Bottle at decaturstevo’s Februmergency Tasting for those of us that missed out on Sexual Chocolate ’09 thanks to decaturstevo. Hazy orange pour with wispy off-white head. Lovely soft floral pine hop aroma with some vanilla. Very pleasant floral hop flavor with some small amount of bitterness. Very good actually.
