Slightly murky dark copperish orange with a foamy off white head. Aroma of toast, dark caramel, and a big grassy hop tone. Taste was big and toasty with a big toffee sweetness. Finished by some grassy dry hoping. Bitter, malty, and caramelish dry. Complex and interesting.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a hazy orange-caramel color with a large foamy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweetish pine, grapefruit, perfume and undertones of faint caramel and nut. The flavor was bitter and dryish with moderate pine, grapefruit and lemon and light caramel, nut and bread underneath. The finish was long and bitter with lingering pine, grapefruit and perfume. Fairly full bodied. Interesting.

Tangerine color with a nice tan head. In a 16 oz. can. I found this to be well balanced, if a bit to the malty side. Nice fruit, a nice varied hop profile, and that sweet malt. It makes for a very nice beer.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. The gargantuan head of foam is clearly the predominant characteristic of this pour, burying a burnt-orange beer. A bountiful aroma escapes thru the foam, rich with malt and notes of pine. The flavors are worthy of a roaring campfire, overflowing with bark, pinecone, resin, and light bitterness. (#4123/5/27/2011)

This is my first beer from Kansas.
The beer pours a hazy red-amber color with an off-white head. The aroma is grassy hops with some toffee and a little bit of chocolate. The flavor is just as good. In addition to a lot of toffee, I get some grassy hops and a dry powdered chocolate flavor. The beer has low bitterness and is very well balanced. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. One of the better ESBs that I have tried.

This poured a dark orange color with an off white head. Aroma was of fruity citrusy hops and toasted malts. Flavor was bright bold citrus, alot more hoppy than i was expecting with a decent biscuty malt backbone. Quality stuff.
