Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear copper color with an average off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Very complex toasted balanced and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex sweet flavor with medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
So this is a BSA, huh? Who has time to decipher all that crap on the label. Pours a clear dark amber color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of toffee malts and spicy, resin hops. The taste is stone fruits, citrus, caramel, spicy, herbal hops. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness and fruitiness. Decent enough.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This brew pours a slightly hazy golden color with a medium white head that recedes gradually to a wispy film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Medium to full body with flavors of resiny hops, zesty grapefruit and toasted malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Solid beer all around.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle from Bruisin Ales. Pours a clear golden amber color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma has sweet candi sugar, yeast, citrus and tropical fruits, with a mild bready note. The flavor is not nearly as sweet, still some tropical and citrus notes, herbal notes kick in, toasted bread, and hints of wood. Interesting enough and I like the story on the bottle.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
9/15/13. 22oz bottle from Grassroots. Another pointless, giant story from Sweetwater without really telling us what the beer is. Oh well, I didn’t really care anyway. Chances are it will be mediocre. Here we go. Dark orange pour, almost amber, with a small khaki head that laces decently. Big floral aroma, minerally, reminds me of an English pale ale, but with some fruity Belgian yeast aspects. Sweet flavor, malty, caramel, a bitter hop character develops, more mineral aspects, floral, fruity. Meh.

Conyers, Ga. - Sigman Bottle Shop - 22 oz bomber. Sparkling medium gold pour, soft white head. Aroma has some fruity notes with a hint of dates and molasses. Flavor has some brown sugar notes, some papaya fruitiness, a faint touch of muted citrus. Mouthfeel has a nice stickiness to it.

Sampled at ESBLS. Hazy golden with a blotchy white head. Some lacing. Dank describes this well. It is also funky. Yeast with fruit and soft malts. Interesting stuff.
