On tap at the brewpub in Sarasota. Medium amber pour,slight sprucey aroma. Flavor has some grapefruity hoppy notes with a balanced malty caramel finish. Thickish mouthfeel. More ale characteristics than a lager. Pretty good.

Draft at brewpub. Pours a dark amber color with a medium head that diminished quickly. Heavy hoppy aroma. Medium body smooth texture. Good complex hoppy flavor with a moderate finish. Best of brews tasted.

Aroma is fairly hoppy with a bit of malt beneath. Tea colored with a lazy white head. Hops dominate the fore then a rich caramel malt smoothness finishes the deal. Fairly basic, but fun ot drink.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2005 On tap at the brew pub. Poured a medium amber color with a small off white head. Aromas and tastes of caramel and citrus. Lightly sweet with a nice hoppy balance. One of the better beers I had there tonight.

I thought this was a rather nice offering.... Pours a nice golden / bronzy body. There is a great fusing of a sweet orange flavored honey malt and a citric, yet woodsy American hop finish. Ending is a crisp and dry honey and orange peel flavor…. Best beer from this brewery yet!
