Tap at Uncle Billys in Austin. Pours a deep amber colirbwith thin lacy head. Aroma is roasted malts, with pine and earthy grass. Not a strong aroma. Taste is nice caramel and toasted malts with a solid bitterness, pine and grass with a bit of alcohol burn. Palate is medium body, light carbonation. Meh.

Draught. Oh no. When "pale" part of the beer style and the pint come out deep amber, things are about to head south. I could see this working if the style was "caramel malt IPA", but alas, it is not. Nose is caramel, toffee, toast, light citrus. Flavor is overly burnt caramel, pine, brown sugar, tons of residual sugars and lots of fusels. Way too sweet, way too boozy. This makes me a sad panda. I think this beer gave me a cavity.

2/24/12. On tap during RBWG 2012. Light orange pour with a small khaki head. Fresh, tropical aroma of hops, including peach and mango. Nice fresh hop flavor as well with more fruits but a bigger hoppy, bitter kick as well. Not too shabby.

(Growler thanks to Mora2000) clearish orange with a thick tan creamy head. Nose is dank, sweet citrus pulp, bready, caramel. Taste is medium bitter, sweet bread, slight bitter orange oils, hairspray, not liking the bitter linger either.

Tap at the Dancing Bear. Pours a murky maroon, reddish brown. White foamy head. Aroma is fantastic, drippy wet hops, sap, pine needles, and grapefruit. Flavor is sweet, super hops, pine, spicy hops and cereal. This is well done. Pretty dry finish however.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler thanks to Mora2000. Pours with a ever so slightly hazed orange (deeper) body with a large, slightly off-white head that lasts and leaves good lace. Aromas of pine, tea, herbs, very light citrus, a hint of tobacco, some caramel and bready malts. Light alcohol. Flavors are a bit flabby, some caramel, a decent bitter bite. Pine, floral, lightly herbal hops. A bit of a high cohumulone hop attack on the back of the throat (chinook perhaps?). Bitter balance with a lingering bitter finish. Medium to low bubbles, creamy. Medium to slightly fuller bodied. Bitter throughout. A bit of water salts left on the back of the tongue. Overall good, but not the hop profile I love, and a little too sweet.
