[At GABF 2004] An unclear copper colored beer with a beutiful orange head. The aroma is sweet hoppy with some grassy notes. The flavor is surprisingly malty considering the aroma, but still with strong notes of hops, and the alcohol content shines thru.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2009 2009-05-11, 8-5-8-5-16=42
Beautiful red-amber color, cloudy, with a medium-sized creamy head. The malt and hops combine into a very nice aroma, reminding some vanilla too, fruity, true American character, also buttery, and with light earthy traces. Medium body strength, caramel flavor, some residual sweetness (just the necessary) and strong resiny bitterness; there are hints of bitter orange too. Balanced, very enjoyable, solid.

Good, sweet and hoppy beer, good body and sweetness, powerful and balanced.
