3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml caged and corked bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a hazy orange/amber color with about an inch light tan head. The head stuck around a little while, and there’s a decent amount of lacing. The brew smells like citrusy hops (grapefruit, orange peel), caramel and bready malt, candied oranges and some raisins. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some pine hops, brown sugar and some general fruitiness. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit creamy with moderate carbonation. Overall I liked this brew. Maybe I should have drank this one fresher, but it’s still good now. $10.99 a bottle.

Bottle@HWT’14: Thanks Hackobock: Served in a taster:
Creamy head/lacing. Clear amber colored beer.
Aroma is hoppy, loads of fruits, tropical fruits, some malts, like a fresh DIPA.

Aftertaste is a mix of fruits, hops, malts, herbs and some yeast. Cliche but good!
Low carbo, creamy silky mouthfeel, medium to more fulller bodied and a creamy texture.
