Pours a dark mahogany/copper with a tall off-white head. Some sweet malts, but mostly citrus hops in the aroma. Taste starts smooth, a bit earthy and dirty on the malts, medium caramel flavors, maybe some mild honey, and finishes with a medium hop finish. Its a good ale, i wish the hops were tamed a bit cause I like the malts in this one.

Amber colored with a tan head. Floral hops abound in this beer, light caramel to offset the hoppiness. light to medium bodied with a fairly dry finish. Pretty tasty.

Orange-pine-grapefruit hop nose with strong tea-like tannins. Burnished copper coloured body with thin tan head that lasts nicely and leaves some lace. Very tannic flavour with subdued orange-pine hop flavour and fair to moderate bitterness is almost like a lightly bitter iced tea. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Bottle (trade Mar. 2005) enjoyed with asheft and Pitpit. Thanks, DocLock!

The hoppiness in this beer is more in the nose than the bitterness. Otherwise, the hops lened more of a spiciness and woody character instead of plain old bitterness. Most likely dry-hopped extensively.

Golden amber color. Nice big head that laces well. More malt than hops on the flavor but the nose was a nice bitter hop. Citrusy, bready, citrus rind, floral notes. I enjoyed it.

Bottle. Very hoppy amber. Pours copper with some head which disappears quickly. Very nice citrus aroma. Although more hops than typical amber, still was worth it. Needs something to smooth out the bitterness however.

Tap at Parry's Pizzeria, Highlands Ranch. Caramel malt aroma with hoppy and pine notes. Pours amber colored with a good head and lacing. Caramel malt and hoppy flavors to start followed by a fairly smooth finish with pine notes at the very end. Interesting.

Ale Alpharetta December Meeting. Dark amber with slight creamy head. Aroma was floral and citrus hops with caramelly malt. Flavor was sweet caramel malts, spicy and citrus hops. Comes off a unbalanced by the hops and finished slightly harsh for me.

From bottle. Ruby hued amber color. Aroma is pungent citrus and pine with intense caramel note; reminiscent of barleywine aromas. Taste starts out sweet caramel and citrus, but veers into a slightly off-putting unripened sour grapefruit note that throws off the balance. Finishes with too much of the bitter sour citrus.
