Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into a glass. Clear dark amber with a generous head. Hoppie was the first thing I notice, didn’t exspect so much hop. Orange peel and pine flavors are similar, backed by a strong caramel maltiness. Winter spices are present. Medium body, creamy, medium carbonation and pleasant malt sweetness in the finish. Over all I enjoyed this beer. I recall last years batch to be much better personally.

From a bottle. Pours hazy copper with a bubbly off white head. Tastes like booze, pine hops, caramel, resin, malty, and dry grapefruit. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like citrus hops, booze, caramel, and nutty malt.

heemer77 (5129) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Bottle. Dark reddish brown colored body with a thin off white head. Sweet caramel and leather are present in the nose. Peaches and cinnamon are also present. This one is boozy at the end of each drink. Peaches are spice notes of nutmeg and cinnamon are also tasted. There is a slightly leathery finish. An overall rough drinking beer between the boozy and slightly soapy finish.

Amber and ruby tones. Passion fruit and tropical smells. Agreeable enough while tasting, I expected a little more on the hops side. Tasty enough - but will take me awhile to get through this 6pck ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from 12oz bottle. Fantastic red hue on this seasonal favorite. Floral scent with a nice hop bite. A beer worthy of making the rotation. --you've been Dubbed.

jrodooo5 (1109) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Good reddish copperish pour w/ a thin white head that leaves nice lacing. The aroma is of soft hops & a little bit of malt. The taste is similar. Basic ingredients w/ nothing special going on. It is very nice on the palate & quite drinkable at 7+%. No real flaws but nothing stands out either!
