12 oz. can served in shaker- well, at least it shouldn’t be that skunky since light cannot penetrate metal- yet. Poured a mildly turbid darkened brown with tints of light maroon when held to a light source, hearty two finger foamy head formed and laced upon the vessel nicely. Aroma of a good size load of hops (grass and grapefruit), and a light note of caramel. Hits the mouth with a medium body with some weight, malt doesn’t have as much caramel as I anticipated, middle has a moderate hop wave but it does have depth- not a massive attack, but a solid press, finish is acidic but it fades away a little too quickly. Decent, but a bit one dimensional.

Handsome red-briwn body and stubborn white head & lace. Impressive.
Piney hops, strong rye malt component, hints of caramel malt too. Pretty bitter; resinous hops linger alongside a touch of booze to wrap things up. Others might love this, but it's not for me.

Orange with a white head. The aroma is full of pine and toffee. The flavor is similar, with some toffee notes and a ton of sugary sweetness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Definitely not as good as expected. I have another can in the fridge and look forward to re-trying it.

Slightly hazy red orange pour with a nice cream colored head. Nice lacing. Aroma is earthy, grapefruit, grass, and caramel in the background. Taste is pine initially but then it sort of disappears. It has some rye and bitterness in the finish, but I’m not getting much in between. Finishes dry on the palate. Easy to drink.

Pours a slightly cloudy amber color with a thick and foamy off-white head that diminishes gradually. Sticky rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops and caramel malt.

Can, 06/03/2013. Pours red amber, thin creamy off-white head fades to a nice crema on the surface. Aroma is caramel and dark rye malts, cereal-like, piney hops and resinous citrus notes, earthy hop cone. Taste is bitter piney hops, dark toffee on top a more traditional malt backbone. Medium body. Overall not too shabby, decently tasty.
