Draft. Marina was earthy, mostly piney with some spicy citrus notes. Poured a light orange gold with rapidly dissipating head. Up front I got some slight earthy hop/pine notes, wasn't getting the spice or orange and it finished very watery and metallic.

Can from Secret Santa 2014. Thanks! Pours hazy coppery ruby with frothy off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, resiny hops, orange. Tastes very piney, hoppy, with caramel malt, orange zest, and a citric, hoppy finish. Quite nice.

Tap @ Revolution: Very slight ruby-tinted copper & brown body with a foamy, beige-gray head that leaves moderate webbed lacing along the glass. Aroma of mild toffee malt, semisweet candied ginger, orange zest, baked bread, faint toasted pecans, & a light drizzle of caramel. Ginger takes the reigns of the flavor... Heavy ginger notes, spicy & warming & zesty with a small, underlying malty sweetness. Faint caramel, brown sugar. Notes of toasted sugar cookie in the periphery with even more subtle notes of orange peel, earth, potpourri spice, & flower petals. Finishes strong with ginger & a small hint of caramel apple. Sharp, just on the edge of astringent. A little to ginger-heavy for me to completely jive with, but still a decent Christmas ale.

12oz can from Kroger in Grandview. Amber pour with a big frothy off-white head and strong retention. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, caramel, toasty. Tastes are ginger, earthy, pine, nutmeg, citrus peel. Ok, not to my tastes.

AirForceHops (6302) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 1, 2014
Clear copper with reddish hues and a thin off white head which retains well. Good lacing follows. Hops and pine on the nose, orange pith, spice. Pine forward in the taste, hops, candied sugar, bitter orange peel, touch of spice. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, smooth on the palate and bitter in the finish

Red amber pour from tap with thin head. Spicy aroma of cinnamon, ginger, licorice, and orange peel are most noticeable. Chewy nutty chocolate malt flavors overwhelm hints of bitter hops. Hops try to emerge, but never quite break through the malty spiciness noted above. Overall, decent Christmas ale that could age well.
