Pours copper with a good beige head. Aromas of floral and fruit. Fullish body with froth carbonation. Itís quite nutty, and very floral. I donít get the nutty, but thatís how Iím interpreting it. Thereís a lot of flavor. Some citrus rind. Finishes more bitter than sweet. Iíd say itís better than DFH 90M. My mouth is starting to shrink. Really good stuff.

daknole (8856) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Orange pour with a creamy white head. Aroma is fruity right off the bat, some caramel and the hops donít make themself overly present in the nose. Flavor is much maltier up front but at the finish you get a nice hop bite. Pretty bitter finish. Overall a nice brew.

Sammy (8354) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 3, 2011
Very nice as a pale ale. Neutral aroma, medium golden colour with one and a quarter inch head, lacey. A good bitterness, big in-mouth hops, like a double pale ale. Well malted. Caramel and a decent mouthfeel. Very drinkable.

355mL thanks to blutt59. Pours a clear orange orange with a large, off-white head. Rings of sticky lace. Nose is sticky booze, red fruits, sweet nectarine. Taste up front is richer, syrupy, and sharp boozy. Ends with pretty soft balance. Not bad at all but sugary and pretty boozy. Not really bitter at all.
