UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Clear copper-bronze pour with a small head. Earthy and resinous aroma, some caramel. Bold hop but balanced. Maybe a little too dank for me - not really feeling this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark amber with an orange hue in my Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Flavors of caramel malt, tangerine and grapefruit. Spicy, piney hop that leads into a lengthy bitter finish. The tangerine also shows up again after the sip. The body is medium with an oily texture on the tongue. This was a nice job from this homebrew winner. After it was finished I wanted another.
