Bottle from Whole Foods in Petaluma. Pours amber with a creamy beige head. Aroma is something like a mandarin. Near full body. Flavor is mandarin with some roast malt. Overall this is bitter and hoppy enough to stand up to some IPAs. Finishes like a clementine.

Tap at Vienna WF. Clear amber pour. Huge 360 lacing. Nose is hefty diacetyl. Taste is light tea, sugar, diet cola, with pretty obvious diacetyl. Minerally, over carbonated mouthfeel. Diacetyl giving faux body. Pretty messy but not offensive. Palate is not astringent or papery.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
10/27/12. On tap at Casbah. Light amber/brown pour with a nice, thick khaki head. Light aroma with some caramel maltiness, nuts, and a definite citrus and apple presence. The flavor is much the same with perhaps a touch more citrus and again that apple presence. Combine with the malts it reminds me of caramel apple in a way. Eh.
