Growler shared by a traveling HSC member. The beer pours a slightly hazy amber color with a medium fluffy beige head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt and mild citrusy hops. Light body with a somewhat crisp character and flavors of sweet malt, caramel and hops. The finish is citrusy with a short mildly hoppy aftertaste. Pretty average overall.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the DoG Street Pub. Deep, dark copper, average-looking American beer. It has a wickedly hoppy nose, rife with wet pine forest aromas. Drinks with a metallic copper character, and tangy, piney hops. Bit on the thin side, and finishing with a bit of cloying tartness. (#4869, 12/24/2012)

Draft Cap Ale Innsbrook. Medium orange amber, decent head. Hoppy aroma, citric in character, pine and grapefruit. Caramel accented malt backbone, hop emphasis on the finish, matches the nose. Definitely in the APA family way more than in the ambers. Quite nice.
