deyholla (7002) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Bottle shared by someone I cannot remember, but thanks! Poured a hazy amber orange with an off-white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was sweet with caramel and grain and balanced by bitter pine and citrus. Flavor began with pine hops and then became more citrus with a strong malt backbone.

fiver29 (1036) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2010
Bottle pours clear orange color with thin head. Aroma is mostly a citrus caramel malt. With a strong focus at this point on the caramel. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is a mix for something citrus and malty. It was probably really hoppy once upon a time. Its a shadow of that self now. And its still a fairly tasty brew with a noticable citrus touch that once was.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2010
22oz. Bottle: Aroma of hops, malt, caramel, and some pine. Poured amber/orange in color with a small, creamy, dense, beige/off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Lightly sparkling. Full of small, medium and large-sized particles throughout. Flavor is lightly sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of malt, hops, pine, resin, slight tropical fruit, and a hint of alcohol. Medium body. Average texture. Malt, slight caramel, hops, pine, and slight tropical fruit finish. 10.5%ABV is noticeable in the flavor, but generally well hidden.

Butters (3850) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2010
Sampled at the Richmond Eleventh. Hazy copper pour with ring of white head. Definitely past it’s prime. Hops have faded quite a bit. But still, lots of oaky notes and biting citrus hops on the tail. Still pretty tasty. And one of the best lables I’ve ever seen.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2010
(Sample Date: 4/17/2010 Source:Kinz) Caramelized sugar sweetness with some dark fruit notes and spicy hops in aroma. Slightly cloudy copper golden with little head. Tea like hop notes in flavor with caramel sugar and hefty alcohol presence. Finish is sweet but dries very quickly from robust bitterness.

Kinz (3365) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2010
Medium to light orange amber, some head initially. Aroma is hoppy, grapefruit oriented. Sweet malts, but lacking depth of flavor. Bitter, resinous hops, anise, pine, baked grapefruit. Some doughy notes on finish. Needed some fresher hop flavors or more depth of malt for it to really work for me. Still a nice beer though.

neepsntatties (1242) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Got to try this recently thanks to, "hannont". Colour... golden-amber with no head at all. Nose... toffee and milk. Palate... frothy, very malty, sweet, dry, oaky, loads of dark toffee and bitter on the soft palate before its lengthy finish.

Some nuts, malt extract and leafy, herbal hops. Taste is bitter, leafy hops. Very bitter. Caramel and toffee as well. Medium-full bodied.
