bottle - Pours deep red. The aroma is heavy on the citrus accented hops and includes some caramel malt. The flavor features high hops bitterness with good citrus notes and a solid lightly toasted caramel malt backbone. Bitterness lingers pleasantly on the palate. Very good.

Deep red amber color out of the tap with a sticky off white head. Big sweet hop candy nose. This is a sweet syrupy beer with tons of malts, caramel, and even more hop resin bite. Noticeable alcohol in the finish. This is a big, sticky hoppy beer.

clear red pour with some white head. nose is fruity, dark caramels, grapefruit rinds, spice, touch of almost roasty like caramels and just a little bit of alcohol in the nose. various burnt caramels and citrus fruits on the palate. sweet malts but finishes dry with a punchy bitterness. Pretty nice brew.

Pours a clear ruby red, with a modest white head. Aromas are definitely malt forward, with a decent backbone of citrus hops, mostly grapefruit. Taste is on the sweeter side, some caramel flavor, a certain doughiness, balanced by more citrusy hops and a lemon zest. Bitter, clean finish. Nice.

Bottle. Clear dark cherry amber pour, thin carbonation and an aroma of light malty hops. Flavor is nice meld of caramel, spicy hops and finishes incredibly smooth for 9.5%. Really nice.

On tap at 2 Bro’s Roundhouse for their Revelry Party. Although dispensed to plastic, still showed a very clear & bright copper color, with a decent head of soft white head foam, and lasting, curtainy cling to the lacing. The aroma was sweet fruit and caramel, with citrus as orange & grapefruit, and a touch of resin. Medium to full bodied, the taste’s main attractions were a strong hop bitterness that was citrusy, rindy, earthy, and lingering, and a balancing malt content with non-clowing, but noticeable sweetness that I’m sure will become a dominant note with age. Warming, not hot, and quite tasty. A good reason for having a tasting party with friends!

Bottle from BottleSelect.com. Pours bright ruddy copper with a slight dark beige head. Aroma is malty with rather earthy hop. Full bodied. Flavor is earthy/resin over rather roasted malt. There’s a slight burn. I’m betting it’s hops. Finishes more resin than earthy. Great stuff.

12oz bottle poured into a goblet. Almost clear deep copper color with reddish hues and a small beige head. Piney hops, with nice nuttiness, some dried fruits, toffee and caramel. Faint oxidation. Sweet juicy malt, with firm bitterness, some alcohol burn and faint rum raisin notes. Full body, quite heavy, long alcoholic finish, soft carbonation and overall interesting though too strong.
