On tap at Dexters, pours a clear copper with a thick egg shelled colored head with thick lacing in the glass, the aroma had quite a bit of citrus and hops mixed in with the caramel and sweetness, the flavor has way more hops than I was expecting it to, huge hop and resin front end with tropical fruit in the finish, slick mouthfeel, nice stuff.

Poured from a can into my Christmas pint glass. It pours a golden with small fizzling head. Flavor is malty that quickly gives way to hops. Clean hop finish.

Sample at 1808 American Bistro. The beer is a hazy dark amber color with a thick foamy off-white head that diminishes slowly. Sticky patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, caramel and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of floral hops, caramel malt and a touch of citrus. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz. can. Pours a cloudy amber color with a lot of particulates. Thick, fluffy off-white head that lingers leaving some nice lacing. Aroma is of pine & citrus hops with some caramel malt in the background. Tastes the same as the aroma with a dry finish. The hops stick around after the swallow. Well done!

From the can: Orange with plenty of suspension, an inch of tan-orange head. Pine and caramel aroma. The flavor is the same, nice caramel backbone with bright citrus and hop presence. Yummy.
