Mild, sweet aroma with citrus, flowers, and some bread. Flavor is bitter and fruity; finish is sweet with fairly heavy alcohol. Different and good.

Bottle, thanks to theEpeeist! Pours cloudy amber, small off-white head, dissipates quickly, good lacing. Aroma is malty, caramel, toffee, dark breads, pine. Flavor is medium sweet and medium bitter, malty and hoppy, tastes a bit oxidized. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Lingering strong bitter finish.

22oz bottle. Poured a medium amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, fruity, bananas, and some earthiness. Tastes of caramel, citrus, the same fruitiness, and brown sugary sweetness. Alcohol burn in the finish.

22oz bottle. Not poured so can’t comment on appearance. Had an earthy/floral aroma. The label says there are a lot of hops, but the hops flavor definitely isn’t as strong as an IPA. Full bodied, smooth finish. Very unique beer.

shared by Beerlando. Big nose, malty with bread notes and hoppy with pine and grass notes. Pours amber with a dense white head. Rich and creamy with caramel malt notes with hints of molasses with an earthy bitterness and resin flavor. Very nice beer and enjoyed reading the history on the bottle, great job!

Beautiful bright orange pour with a soft white cap. Aroma is very fruity with some floral notes and alcohol. A bit too hot though to pick out much in the taste past the alcohol & hop bitterness.

22oz capped from gen0sis. Clear caramel golden with light tan head. Whoa!..hot nose...solvent, astringent, artificial apple, light caramel and quite adjunct-y. Much more pleasant on palate though. Dark fruit and cough syrupish though as it warms. Bizzare beer.

6/26/10. Sampled at the Tally Tasting 2010 courtesy fata2683. Bubblegum aroma, the flavor is huuuge sweet with bubblegum. Strange.

Pours a dark copper amber color with dark golden orange hues when held to a light source and a to finger frothy yellowish beige head. Excellent retention, only slowly fading into a lasting cap that coats the glass with chunks of lacing.
Slightly earthy hop aroma with hints of pine and subtle tropical and citrus fruit notes, especially orangepeel and pineapple. Malt presence with hints of toffee, bread, graham cracker, caramel and rye.
Surprisingly chewy full body with a very dry hop presence up front that is pretty bitter but not overbearing. Floral with hints of earthy pine and sweet citrus notes, especially mango, pineapple, grapefruit and orange peel. Sweet caramel malt backbone with hints of toasty bread, toffee, caramel, rye and hazelnut. Strong alcohol presence toward the end of the swallow that is a bit overpowering. Again, graham cracker is present and this beer is nicely balanced but a bit too hot for my liking. Long dry finish. An interesting experiment but kind of mediocre.
