12 oz. can from Buckeyeboy. Thanks! It pours a deep copper red color with a nice, creamy one finger head. The aroma is piney with some cherry wood, light hints of toast and roasted malt. The flavor is the same. Bitter and piney with caramel, red wheat, roasted malt, cherry with a hint of cocoa. Very nice ASA. It packs a potent punch!

poured a medium to dark orange color with an off white head. Aroma was of caramel malt and stale citric hops. Flavor was much the same. Alcohol came through fairly strong OK.

Had at the Ravenous Pig at RBWG 2010. Pours a nice brown/red with a small white head. The aroma is all old ale with some hops, but the flavor is big sweet and lots of chocolate with plenty of hop bitterness. This is a nice combo of flavors.

hopscotch (10011) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2010
Bottle… RBWG ‘10… Cloudy burnt orange ale with a small, short-lived, white head. The nose is fruity, earthy and malty – cascade hops, toffee and caramel. Medium-bodied with laid-back carbonation. Lots of earthy, citrusy hop bitterness. Toffee and caramel undertones. Lengthy, bitter, dry finish. Thanks to jcwattsrugger for sharing!

750 mL bottle pours deep reddish brown with little creamy head into a snifter. Thin aroma of caramel malt, hops, grapefruit. Hop bitterness balances well with the caramel malt, kind of a burnt sugar taste. Finishes with some light toffee, raisins, brown sugar, bit of booziness. Exceptional silky mouthfeel. Full bodied and low carbonation. Good stuff that warms nicely. Underrated.
