The aroma is earth, grassy, onion. The appearance is gold orange, white head. The flavor is grasy, like a pils, onion, earth. The finish is spicy, wild onion. Medium in body Good, really good, just some odd hops in here.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6536) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2014
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a dark amber color with a medium sized foamy off white head that left good lacing. The aroma was tangy pine, vague fruits and pepper. The flavor was sweet and tangy pine, hot pepper, a bit of citrus, floral hops and tropical fruits. Medium length finish of pine, pepper and citrus and the brew turns bitter towards the very end. Moderately full bodied. Nice.

Damico (3137) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2014
Not fresh unfortunately it being April 1st. Pours golden yellow clear with a great white head and nice lacing. Flavor and aroma have both lost tropical fruit character, but there is a bitter juicy orange flavored profile that satiates the palate.

Acquired as an extra via jdb288, Thanks Derek! Pours a medium-clear golden color, very clear for the style with a nice white head. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, and mangos and is very enjoyable. Taste is great with all kinds of citrus and pine coming through. Very little bitterness with lots of back end hoppy flavor, even my girlfriend liked this one and she is not a fan of bitter/hoppy beers. I would drink this all the time if possible.

Bottle. Enjoy by: 05/24/14. A hazy straw pour with a thick off-white head. Resiny pine, grapefruits, zesty citrus rinds, apricots, light grass, and a subtle herbal quality feature in the aroma. Thin to medium-bodied on the way down. Lots of sweet caramel and a big bready maltiness start things off taste-wise. Plenty of vanilla in the middle. An ample amount of grapefruitiness, citrus rinds, peach juice, and some apricots at the end. A moderately dry finish. A little spice, some floral qualities, and some warming alcohol present from beginning to end. I expected more from this one.
