12 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden orange with a creamy white head. Pine trees on the nose, with peaches and sweet malts to back. Flavour of piney hops, grapefruits and other more subtle tropical fruits, and earthy caramel malts - bitter dry piney hops on the finish.

daknole (10738) - 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 don’t 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.
