Bottle @ home. Fairly clear, reddish brown appearance with a light tan head. Toasty, caramel malty, mildly woody, moderately piney/citrusy hoppy aroma. Creamy caramel malty, fairly bitter, pretty big piney/citrusy hoppy, mildly oaky flavor. Easy drinking but nothing too exciting.

Lightly cloudy reddish pour, big huge puffy off white head. Citrus aroma hits first, followed by some spices, light toothpick notes, unripe apricot, and some caramel. Flavor has some carraway notes, caramel, citrus peel, sawdust, resin, golden raisins. Not bad at all.

hopscotch (9364) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2011
Bottle… Tampa “Farewell to Sebletitje” Tasting… Cloudy burnt-orange ale with a small, wispy, off-white head. Excellent retention. The hopped up bouquet presents loads of citrus fruit and pine alongside more subtle nuances of toffee, raw oak, sugar cookie and vanilla. A hint vegetal and herbal. Medium to full-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor is very hoppy, but decently balanced by a caramel and toffee undertone. Short, crisp, refreshing beer. Tastes like just a really nice, hopped-up session beer. I’m surprised to see the abv is nearly 7%. Well done! Bottle courtesy of giarcsr. Thanks, Ryan!

750ml bottle. Thanks Tom. Poured a deeper amber with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of wood, caramel, nuts and toffee. Tastes of the same with citrus and a little toasty.

GT2 (8666) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Tap at The Bruery. Muddy burnt orange pour. Medium to weak foam. Nose is hefty sage and white pepper. Bright and herbal. Taste is bright lemon and lime, not sticky, fairy dry and dusty with bitter rind and heavy coriander. Good, refreshing despite appearance. Bright herbs abound. Shockingly different than expected.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Sample at Bruery Provisions. Pours a copper-amber color with a medium off-white head that burns away slowly to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt and citrusy hops. Medium body with flavors of sweet malt, citrus, hops and a bit of spruce. The finish is malty with a slightly woody aftertaste. Decent overall.
