650ml bottle. XIII. Thanks Steve. Copper in colour with a thin but lasting off-white head, good lacing. The aroma is of citrus, biscuits, caramel. The flavour is of pine, oranges, caramel malt sweetness, light grapefruit. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes with a lingering hop bitterness.

Pours a slightly hazy amber-copper with a nice big sticky white head that leaves good head. Aroma is earthy, caramel, grapefruit, toffee. Flavour is caramel, toffee, toast, earthy, grapefruit, pine and a medium bitterness. I’m guessing harder water would make the hop bitterness pop more but this beer is really smooth!

Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a hazy copper with a dense off white head with lots of lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel, toffee, grapefruit, citrus hops, pine and resin. Taste is caramel, resin, pine, grapefruit and a well balance of hops and bitterness on the flavor that’s never astringent. Great double!
