a: rubyamber color, nice frothy head with pretty good retention. Reduces to lacing and rings around the glass
s: citrus hop aroma hits like a sledgehammer, hint of caramalized malt
t: carmel malts not as much hop flavor as I was expecting from the smell. I notice a bit of pine taste.
m&d: smooth and pretty well balanced. medium bodied, this beer is an awesome session brew.

On cask at Rattle ’N’ Hum, NYC. Toasted toffee and apricot aroma with a white gummi bear accent. Almost clear bronze under white wisps and a thin ring. Sweet caramel flavour with apricot and pine hops, medium bitterness, and some lemon peel. Medium body, moderate to low carbonation, midway between smooth and crisp.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber beer with a thin foamy off-white head. Rather strange nose of menthol, soap, perfume, and funk. Flavor is better with a nice malty caramel sweetness up front followed by a medium bitterness of spruce, pine, and resin. Rather thick on the palate, this is an unusual beer that grows on you.

Dude. You should definitely check this out. Aroma is lots of stone fruit: peaches, berries and a little citrus to round it out. Think mangosteen. For those of you who’ve never heard of a mangosteen, you know what to do--Google That S#!%. It has a nice sweetness that assimilates the fruity hop flavor. It’s not particularly bitter... so if you want to warm your hop adverse friends up to the joys of hops...try this one...

On tap at the ABE airport. It’s pretty good. darker amber body. Light fruity sweet aroma. Taste was similar. More sweet tastes than fruitiness. It’s kind of like a baby Nugget Nectar.
