On tap at Bruery a few Fridays ago. Color was golden amber with a light tan head. Aroma of earth, pine, Belgianish yeast with a hint of BO. Flavor was a bit of an odd mix for me. Hops were very earthy, and reminded me a bit of mesquite wood mixed with BO. Dry finish. Not very balanced. Just ok for me.

Brewsmith (148) - Torrance, California, USA - FEB 3, 2009
From a growler fill at the Bruery poured into a Willi Becher style 0.5 L glass. Aroma is a combination of fresh American hop cirtus with Belgian yeast fruit, spice, and bubblegum. Amber brick orange with a big pillowy beige head. Hop flavor is up front with caramel and toasted malt flavors. A touch of sweetness, but balanced toward bitterness. Higher carbonated like many of their beers. Dry finish with some lingering bitterness and yeast character.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 17, 2009
On tap. Pours with a foamy, off-white head and a hazy dark amber body. Good lacing. Tons of citrus and spicy hops with a bit of fruit. Surprised at the ABV. Taste is a bit of Belgian yeast, earthiness, and spicy hops. Lively bubbles and a bit dry. Very good, stuff.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2009 On tap at the bruery This poured an opaque amber with reddish highlights with a one fingered off white head. The flavor was dry up front with a slightly sweet finish. Very enjoyable, it would be a good session beer.
