4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine in Raleigh. Dark orange pour with an off-white head. Strong grapefruity hop aroma balanced with a nice malty sweetness. Very nice. Very good flavor with the grapefruit hoppiness, some pine, some grass, toffee, and caramel sweetness. The alcohol is noticeable but well-balanced. This is far better than I expected and I think it is very underrated.

12 ounce bottle via Timfoolery, nice head and fizziness, malty, not overly boozy. Simple but good.

Strange beer. The fruit flavors in this combine in a really odd way. Not bad tho

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber with a thick off white head. Aroma is light pine hops with a very slight fruity element. Flavor is a little sweet with a tiny bit of hops in the finish. A little resinous in the finish though the body is a bit thin. Aftertaste is bittersweet. Not bad, but it could be a bit more impressive.

Bottle. Pours copper with a dissipating off-white head. Nose is mango, pine and a touch of caramel. Taste is a variety of tropical fruits, namely mango and pineapple with a strong caramel backbone. Palate is full and smooth. Bit of alcohol bite throughout. Nice beer.

Decent, if a little flat. Also I donít think that mine was quite this strong...Pours dark, little head or carbonation. Sweet, not very hoppy, and smooth. Good, not amazing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location/Date:Bottle split with Dave on 4/7/2013 during S3E2 of GoT.
Appearance: Pours a medium caramel clear.
Aroma: Aroma of caramel, light booze, faint bread.
Taste: Light hop, strong caramel, somewhat sweet.
Palate:Medium light body, light aftertaste.
Summary: Going through my collection in the great inventory reduction of 2013, so getting kinda burnt out on the style - but this is really well made, I like the lightness of the appearance and the body.

Clear amber pour with a tiny white head. Nose is juicy juice, campfire wood smoke, sweet caramel malts and toffee. A weird combo of aroma. Sweet juicy raspberry and dark fruit flavor, lighter smoke and sweetness. This is interesting and hard to pinpoint but not bad.
