Patrickctenchi (6470) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Slightly hazed, copper-red with a short, tan head. Scent is caramel malt and candied orange. Flavour is sweet and bready, caramel, with an orange-peel bitter finish. Much nicer than the ratings currently reflect. Tasty, clean and bright.

Bottle - pours dark red with a nice rising head...and unfortunately its downhill from there. Has a dank aroma and a biscuit taste. Overall malty but a very weak mouthfeel.

dmac (6037) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 29, 2012
12oz bottle from Spirits Middletown. Poured a good looking rusty orange/brown body with an average to a touch smaller frothy light beige head. Aroma is more malt forward with old caramel, nutts and brown bread, perhaps a touch of old rotting orange slices. The body is medium with assertive carbonation that forces the body to finsh full and almost creamy but the carbonation doesnt die down at all so I really wouldnt call the finish creamy. Flavor has a very slight hint of pennies, along with old wet toast, wet nutt shells, caramel wax paper and a touch of citrus towrds the end.

Bottle shared by John. Dark brown with off white head. Nose and taste of barley, dried earth, oats, cocoa and orange rind. Very grainy/earthy. Lighter bodied.

EithCubes (5772) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Bottle. Citrusy nose with caramel and heavy toffee, light dough but picking up some unusual chocolate overtones. Dark amber pour with a rocky beige head. Taste moderately dry, some hay and cookie with toasted grains, pleasantly malty but that under a thin blanket of bitterness and harsh carbonation, though the latter isnt terribly significant. Good citrus profile but I want more from the hops. Touch of booze toward the back, aftertaste is a little stale, and the full body is too strong for an APA - we might better class this with the IPAs. Enjoyed it well enough!
