Draft courtesy of urbeer, thanks! Hazy amber color, medium white head. Aroma has lots of pine and citrus. Taste is bitter pine resin. Aggressive stuff, but of course more mellow than Five Squared.

brokensail (10785) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
A hazed orange, amber pour with a white head. a fair bit of banana ester to the nose along with some orange peel and apricot fruitiness. A good malt and sugar sweetness and a lot of sugar. There is a lot of caramel and sugar sweetness to the palate, too. A fair amount of banana and tons of apricot fruit flavor. A definite alcohol presence, however.
