kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2009
Draft, at Nodding Head on 7/24/09. Pours brownish-amber, topped with a small off-white head. Aroma is nice and a bit hop-forward, with notes of citrus nicely balanced by toffee, caramel, and fruit. Flavor exhibits nice balance as well; with good interplay between toffee, caramel, lemon and grapefruit. Citrus lingers on the palate. Very tasty, and quite easy to drink.
