Derek881 (1004) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Poured this beer from the bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a very cloudy amber-orange color with some slight sediment and a good-sized foamy white head with solid retention, great cling, and good lacing. Its aroma featured some spice, citrus, pine, and floral hops, and touches of barley malt beneath. The taste was grainy and bitter with some lighter citrus, and a modest sour grain effect too. It was a lively, fizzy beer with good carbonation, and was very dry, but with a thick, filling mouthfeel.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy citrus hop aroma. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation and soft alcohol bite at the finish. Solid brew.

Large off white head with fair retention and lace.Slightly hazy copper/amber hued ale. Nose of grainy malts and some co2. medium bodied, somewhat astringent and a bit carbonated, prickly. Dry and somewhat astringent malt flavors. cant find much for hops, maybe slight grassy notes, metallic(not the good kind either!). Dry, astringent finish. Thats enough of that shit. Must of gotten a bad bottle by the appearences of the other ratings. Hooof!
