KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUL 25, 2011
Bottle. It poured a hazy medium brown that supported a large light brown rocky head that was bellowing above the top of the glass. It dissipated at a rapid pace leaving just a little residue behind, although it was enough for some really excellent lacing. The aroma was unusually complex with a mild scent of toasted malts, a nice dose of piney hops and an earthy yeast with hints of sweet fruit, honey and a nice citrus note. The taste had kind of a sweet-acidic flavor with a slight fruity note from the onset. Then it slowly but firmly became extremely bitter with a nice strong hop presence and a touch of citrus at the end. Mouthfeel was somewhere between light and medium in body and nice and dry in texture with a subtle soft carbonation. Overall a unique tasting brew that was very enjoyable. A must try for a Hop Head.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2016 Thanks Lagzibacsi! Light brown. Very sweet flaky malty aroma. Sweet syrup on the nose. Long sweet malts and mild bitterness. Really sessionable. Balanced nice a bit sweet for me, but a good 12 pack beer.

ciocanelu (835) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 25, 2015
Amber color with off-white head. Smells mostly like some herbal hops with a slight malty undertone. Taste starts with some caramel and continues with the same herbal hops note from the aroma. Quite bitter up-front and gets intensely bitter to the finish and follows in the aftertaste. Body is quite light and well carbonated. Overall this is a really aggressive amber ale with a lot of bitterness.
