Dogbrick (7627) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 18, 2003
Courtesy of Hollingshead Deli in Orange, CA. This beer was certainly a pleasant surprise. Usually these gimmicky-type bottles house awful beers. Pours a thorough amber color with a medium thin and quickly dissipating light beige head. Very thin lacing. Assertive floral hops aroma. Excellent balance of hops and malt in the flavor. Nice, clean finish is bitter and a little spicy. Very good.

Bottle. Grapefruit peel and toffee malt aroma. Dark amber with nice tan head. Sweet toffee malt and mildly bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Nice body. Nicely hoppy.
