Can. An unclear, golden colored beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is sweetish, with apricot notes and resins. The flavor has a light sweetness, a bitterness level to deal with it, some maltyness and resiny, piney hop flavors. Full body and a pleasant carbonation level. Lasting fruity and bitter finish. Sure a decent one, not too bitter and not too sweet. Wouldn’t mind repeating this one. 140613

Bottle split at GBBF ’14, day 1, 12/08/14 thanks to JF. Lightly hazed golden amber with moderate off white edgeing and spotting. Nose is caramel malt, light spice, bitter citric peel, earthy hop. Taste comprises light pine, orange pith, grapefruit, touch of mango, straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with hop bitterness. Drinkable stuff but lower end of the style spectrum for me.

brokensail (14045) - San Leandro, California, USA - AUG 20, 2015
Bottle @ Whiskey St. Hazed orange pour with a white head. Lots of sweet peach and some caramel malts. Big time grapefruit, some orange rind, and lemon peel. Pretty decent bready malts and some tropical fruits. Not bad, decently hoppy but certainly sweeter than I typically like.

Amber. Not much head. Sort of a dull hop aroma - there’s lots in there, but they’re dull. Earthy, but the bitterness is low for the style. The malts, which are slightly caramelly and a little bit earthy, don’t mix well with the hop character... not something I’d get excited about.

bhensonb (12970) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Pours copper with a good beige head. Aromas of floral and fruit. Fullish body with froth carbonation. It’s quite nutty, and very floral. I don’t get the nutty, but that’s how I’m interpreting it. There’s a lot of flavor. Some citrus rind. Finishes more bitter than sweet. I’d say it’s better than DFH 90M. My mouth is starting to shrink. Really good stuff.
