Sent in a picture. Pours with a big, rocky, white head covering a clear, deep gold body. Nice hoppy aroma with some bready malts. Good lacing and retention from the head. Nice lightly spicey, hoppy taste with a fruity malt back bone over the long duration. Nice level of carbonation.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Aroma is mildy hoppy with a hint of malt. The flavor is lacking in the hop department, but there is a nice malty and grainy aftertaste that linger. Not bad, but nothing special.

Bottled. Poured clear lighter orange with a short, spotty cap of white head. The aroma picked up juicy orange and lesser pine notes over a sweet caramel base.. soft and well-balanced. The flavor found caramel at the core along with cardboard oxidation-like notes.. a little honey as it warmed up.. bitterness was light with orange and pine again.. finished quick with a dose of orange blossom honey. Light-bodied and dry overall on the palate.. carbonation was on the light side.. just an OK flow.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at friend’s wedding. Aroma was slightly sweet malts, nice toasted notes and plenty of sweet, pine hop character. Flavor was nice, easy to drink hops and malts. Well balanced. Pretty easy to drink. I think this one would be easy for the newcomer but interesting enough to keep the serious beer drinker entertained.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled at Denver Winter Brewfest 2011. Clear light amber in color with sweet flowery grassy hop aroma. Taste profile is typical of a pale, but watered down somehow. A bit too floral and bitter and lacking body. A big fat "meh"
