Slight pine & hops aroma. Not too much to smell. Amber/golden in color with a creamy.off white head. Almost nutty but still hop filled in taste. Pine over rides it all, Tasty.

Tap at Old Chicago. Pour is a hazy orange with thick, lasting white head. Aroma is citrus and floral hops, taste matches the aroma. Really solid.

16oz nitro pour at RFD in DC. Pours a slightly hazy, darker orange with some very cream, lacing white head. I thought the aroma was very nice, clearly a British take on the style, lots of fall fruit, some root veg, standard pine, lemon. some dried leaves. Flavor is malty and sweet, roasted parsnip, pear, lemon, orange, pine. Clean finish. Creamy in the mouth. I thought this was excellent.

I had this from a nitro tap so its changes it. Slightly hazy amber. Hops and fall leaves scent. The beer kind of tastes backwards the malts hit you before the hops. It is a pleasant change that leaves you lightly bitter.

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Nitro at craft ale house. Pours hazy light brown or really dark yellow. There is a medium sized off white head, decent lacing. The aroma is a mix of floral notes, citrus, and some toffee and nuttiness. Great mix. The taste is light orange, light bitterness and sweet finish.

jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 17, 2013
From tasting notes. Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy dark orange with a small, off-white head. Aromas of citrus and pine hops, caramel and a touch of tropical fruits. Nice citrus and pine hop flavor partially balanced with some sweet caramel notes. More citrus/pine hops and sweet caramel in the finish with some added tropical fruit notes.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Backlog rating, picked this one up in Cleveland several years ago. Hazy deep gold pour with a nicely fluffy, elegant carbonation to it. Soft toffee malts along with Fuggles and shit in the nose. Beefed up, imperial bitter perhaps as a style? Certainly is aggressively hopped, which complements the nice bready malts quite nicely, giving this one a crisp, almost sessionable quality.

tricyclist (1125) - Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Nitro sample pour. pours a golden/light amber hue with a light fluffed head. Nose is very light, citrus notes of sweet orange and grapefruit. Flavor is similar, only much more intense. Grassy notes all over with orange up front and grapefruit as well. Quite drinkable. Nitro provides a different texture, but still smooth.

3.5
gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Nitrous pour. Nice calm pour with a froathy head. Smooth hop flavor and easy on the palate. Nice beer.

3.2
NikkTwist (3191) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Nitro draft at the Khyber Pass. Slightly hazy honey brown amber with a thick tight white head. Strong dry floral notes overtaking a subdued honey sweetness. Dandelion. Lavender. Meyer lemons. Straw. Green bananas. Body is a bit watery. Absence of dark malt flavors makes this an interesting E.S.A..
