This is one of my home brewpubs, and I love their Beers. This is a fine example of the style, very thick and rich with a wonderful hop and citrus aroma. The color is deep amber that reflects the light beautifully. The flavor profile is that of fresh picked hops with a citrus background and a bit bit of pin resin. The mouthfeel is rich and creamy and very chewey. This is one damn fine beer.

Thanks Sebastian. Golden colored ale, with a smooth, creamy and long lasting white head. Appropriate mouth feel. Bright hop aroma showcases notes of lemon and pine. Flavor has some depth and balance to it. I like the malt sweetness, with hints of caramel and biscuit. Vibrant hops as well, with notes of pine and lemon. A nice ale.

On tap @ Thunder Canyon - Pours a bright, clear deep copper color with a 3/4 finger thick off white head. Light spotty lacing. The aroma is wonderful. Full of floral, pine, and light citrus hops and fruity esters. Flavor is sweet malt, fruit, and and light resin. Slight lingering bitter aftertaste. Medium body. An excellent beer.

Poured a clear, amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, citrus fruits, light caramel, toasted malts, and floral hops. Taste of pine, resin, light caramel, citrus fruits, faint tobacco, and a moderate grapefruit bitterness in the finish.

Unexpected hand bottle. Green, fresh and minty aroma. Just a small amount of citrus meat (orange and tangerine). Rather thick and heavy aroma, normally associated with pine resin, but not so much here. Citrus zest and outdoors. Pours a thick, hazy dark orange. A thin head leaves decent sticky lacing. Quite full bodied for the style. Thick and heavy with a bit of residual sweetness but never cloying. Flavor is accentuated by orange meat, slight pine resin, tangerine and clementine zest. Some herbalness (there’s the mint again). Hoppy as all getout, but a good dose of bready and slightly toasted caramel malt keep the intense hops in check. Awesome drinkability. Intensely hoppy throughout but remains quite drinkable. Thanks for the awesome treat Sebastian!

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 5, 2011
Sampled @ AZ Strong Beer Fest. 24 karat body that has tiny bubbles percolating from the bottom of the glass, creating a thin ivory head. Nose of grapefruit, spruce, orange peel, and caramel. Flavor is a burst of citrus with a nice honey finish to balance it out. Medium mouthfeel. Good one!

Hazed orange pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, resiny hops, and bread. Flavor mirrors aroma except better. Medium full bodied with smooth silky carbonation. A very nice beer.
