Brewed with lots of Golden Promise and Pale Ale malts with a touch of Oats and light hazy gold in color. Ultra crisp bitterness from Warrior hops, with Glacier hops adding the peach,orange and apricot aroma. We dry-hopped this one because...we like hops.

Pours a golden yellow color with a quickly dissipating froth. Aroma is very earthy hops with some sweet malty notes. Flavor starts off very sweet and mellow but the hops come in quickly and take over through the finish. The bitterness is somewhat mild. Very strong pine and floral flavors. Medium bodied, this is a very refreshing esb that really isn’t too bitter, almost to the point of being an ipa.

Courtesy theisti. Wow, I like the hop aroma on this one with a big citric fruity peachy nose. Dark bread shores up the back end. Hazy copper with a nice but small foamy head. Oh man, starts with a one-two punch of herbal tobacco leaf hops and earthy biscuity malts, all propped up with a big soft pillowy mouthfeel, with light airy carbonation. Crisp balanced finish, with a lingering tingle of spicy hop. There’s alot of hop complexity in this, and a nice malt backbone for being low alcohol. Altogether quite nice.

Thanks to tytoanderso for the can. Clear orange color with a medium head. Aroma of caramel malts, biscuit and fresh grapefruit and pine hops. Dry and bitter taste. Crisp and good for a hot summer day..

Can from TomDecapolis. Pours a mostly clear copper with a thin white head. Aroma is toasted malts, slightly nutty, nice hearbal and floral hops with a touch of mint. More herbal and tea-like hops in the flavor with fresh doughy yet crisp malts, and a clean bitter finish. Pretty good for a bitter.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2009 16 oz can brought down to KC from my Dad, via the assistance of tytoanderso at Zipps in Minneapolis, MN. Pour is hazy orange copper with a one inch tan head. Carbonation bubbles rise to the top. Very active looking beer. Nice lacing. Aroma of very fresh pine hops and floral. Really clean and fresh smelling. Taste reveals some nice smooth caramel biscuit maltiness that transitions into the fresh hoppiness towards the end. Finish has some nice mild burnt toast flavor. Palate is thin, clean and bordering on watery. Super nice session beer.

Can from Mrthirstyneck - thanks, Shane! Ooh baby, this is the stuff after a vigorous workout. Pours darker than expected, with liveliness that impresses coming out of a can (Surly continues to impress). Vigorous palate suits the crisp nose and the super dry flavors of the beer. There is definitely some tea in there, complement the hops and spice, a hint of pine. Very enjoyable.

The beer was amber-orange with some off-white head that quickly dissipated. It was very fragrant with hints of floral, ice tea, and grapefruit hops. The flavor was similar with the addition of apricots and new vinyl (in a good way). Bitter ice tea hop finish. Very little hop burn compared to a Furious.

egajdzis (5616) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Poured a lightly hazy golden color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted dough, toffee malts, citrus fruits, and a floral, grassy, hoppiness. Taste of tropical fruits, more bread, a bit of toffee, faint caramel, with citrus fruits, light pine, and a nice bitterness in the finish.

(Can) Pours a hazy amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma of canned fruit cocktail, pineapple, grass, and biscuit. Flavor of grapefruit, earthiness, toasted malt, and biscuit with a dry, moderately bitter finish.
