Pours hazy orange with a soapy white head. Aromas of some citrus fruits and light malts. Flavor is a bit up front with malts but the hops kick in for the finish. Alcohol isnít very well hidden but it does do what the label says it will, ring your bell. Overall not bad, but thereís so many better ASAs out there.

Speckled amber with a slowly dissolving creamy beige head. Aroma of corn, malt, toffee, dough, mild fruit cake and a hint of floral hops. Taste of alcohol, more alcohol, malt, light caramel and a dry finish. Kinda bland.

MadRobin (1693) - Silver Spring, USA - FEB 4, 2013
On tap at the Quarry House Tavern in Silver Spring, MD. Lightly hazy, dark amber-orange with off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of floral and citric hops, bread, brown sugar and pine. Taste of floral and citric hops, bread, brown sugar and pine. Sweet opening with a darkly bitter--and not entirely pleasant--aftertaste. Full/medium body and high/medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rondphoto (1532) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Cloudy dark orange amber with a long 1" off-white head and large swaths of lace. Taste is mostly caramel malt with a light bitter finish. Doesnít jive with the 8.5%abv, not enough of the right flavors to justify it. A decent brew, a good looking brew, but others are better.

12 Oz. Bottle poured dark cloudy amber with a large tan head. Aroma of hops, bread pine notes. Flavor sweet, very mild bitterness and did felt the alcohol quite a bit. Although is a very boozy beer is quite drinkable.

A good one out of my home state of South Carolina. A lovely hazy, copper color. Being the hop whore that I am i thought this was delish. Did not mind the slight buzz afterwards in the least bit either,

Thisis12ptfont (781) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Aroma is primarily hoppy/piney. Color is a deep, golden copper with a large two -finger foam. Itís a bit difficult to detect any flavors through the intense carbonation. What I can get is a big metallic flavor and some caramel. Overall, Itís way over-carbonated with an alcohol presence on the finish. Not very good.

AdamJackson (2099) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Cloudy orange red, 1 finger off-white head. Nose is malty brown sugar, cloves. Very sweet. Like eating straight toffee. Very rough tobacco after taste. Very astringent and boozy.

Pours a slightly hazy orange yellow. Aroma of malt and lemongrass. Taste is malty sweet with a serious bitter streak that fades as it is overtaken syrupy sweetness. Similar in spirit to 90 minute. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
