COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deep amber ale has rich & roasty malt flavors, a big hoppy character, citrus overtones (courtesy of the hops and our special brewers yeast) and modest alcohol.

My main impression from this was tea leaves. Kind of like a light version of Three Floyds Alpha King. Amazing flavor for an ABV of only 4.4%. It would be a fantastic session beer, yet flavorful enough to satiate in a 12 ounce dose.

DarkBeerChick (155) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - DEC 30, 2010
Bottle from Stein’s Deli in New Orleans. Deep amber with fluffy head and delicate lacing. Aroma is a sweet hoppiness. It starts sweet with light hop follow through and a slight bitter finish. Tastes like it has more alcohol than it does. Reminds me a little of a tame IPA.

Alecwallace (155) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2013 Pours amber brown with a caramel head. Very strong citrus and pine aroma. This mellows and there is some malt in the taste, then as it warms the hops come back. Similar to a Summer Wine beer which eludes me at the time or writting, possibly Rogue.

omegamike (152) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2012
Pours deep amber, with a thick white fluffy head. Aromas of grapefruit and pine dominate, backed up by an aggressive better flavour that leads into malt and a sour grapefruit finish.

Poured from a bottle. Pours a dark red with fair amount of tan head. Appears well carbonated. Smells very hoppy. I taste tones of roasted malts and hops, along with citrusy goodness.

Kroney (150) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Pours deep copper/red... minimal head and lacing. Aroma has a nice spicey hop characteristic to go along with the light roasted malt backbone. Flavor starts out all-malt, but has a very nice citrus/spicey hop flavor to balance. At 4.4% abv, this a perfect session beer for people who like more complex flavors. Well done.

Bottle from bier huis, ossett. Brown ale, with lacy white head. Piney citrus aroma. Lychee and malty pine when tasted, citrusy and dry bitterness. Good.

DiabolikDUB (147) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 21, 2009
On-Tap @ Bailey’s Taproom, poured into Shaker Pint glass. pours a medium brown that has a copper glow around the glass with a creamy white head that dissolves into a broken ring around the shaker. Aroma has caramel malt, tart cranberry and earthy hops. Very unique aroma for an Amber. Flavor is a little watery upfront but develops into a caramel and toffee, once it shows itself, and a mild bitterness. It has a light-medium body that coats your mouth with every sip. Extremely sessionable and unique ale but the nose leads you to believe it may be more complex than it ends up being.
