Poured into a nonic pint glass, the appearance was a ruddy burnt dark orange color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that swiftly fell apart. Sliding lace.
The aroma had some sweet to bitter floral and citusy hops up front with a pinch of white pepper and a sturdy caramel malt base.
The flavor was moderately sweet with a balancing spice of the white pepper. Aftertaste was the citrusy hops and malts. Not much of a finish.
The palate was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt fine.
Overall, decent APA, not sure if the white pepper was intentional but I liked it. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 30, 2016

12 oz can. Deep dirty brown pour with a tiny off white head. Aroma dominated by caramel malt. Huge malt backbone that drowns out any sense of hops or depth. Boozy finish.

Sampled at 3rd annual RI Brewfest; Flavor starts lightly sweet with pale malt base with caramel hints. Lighter body, nearly thin and very grainy. A dusty grain flavor shows throughout the brew. I get very little, if any hop profile at all. This one needs some work. BeerandBlues2 (14018) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 25, 2014
