caramel and crystal sweetness is taking over as the citrus naturally begins to fade, creamyness grows to be a sweet and creamy citrus malt beverage,

deyholla (6633) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Half pint at the brewpub. Pours a clear deep amber with a tan head that lasts throughout the beer and laces nicely. Aroma has a good amount of earthy grain with quite a bitter pine and a bit of underlying grassines. Flavor begins with grassy and piney hops that are bitter in the finish with a grain backbone.

drowland (6027) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - OCT 30, 2013
10/30/13. On tap at Bleu Cafe. Mostly clear amber pour with a big khaki head that laces a ton. Mild hop aroma, dank, mild citrus, plenty of caramel, and even some biscuity chocolate aspect. Mild bitterness, some floral and piney hop character, but not much. Plenty of caramel and biscuit. Too many specialty malts. Meh.
