Poured a hazy amber color with a lot of sediment floating around. Head is small and off-white. Aroma is malty with some pine and some grains. Taste has lots of grains with some citrus and grapefruit. Aftertaste is mostly citrus and some caramel. Overall, it’s ok, but nothing special. Bricks (1126) - Delaware, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Very good. Sorta like a 60 minute, but more earthy. Definitely a decent APA. SilkTork (5737) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2012
355ml bottle from Beers of Europe. There’s a little more malt character than normal in an APA, which pleases me. Toffee and caramel notes add to my pleasure. Carbonation is just a little too crisp for my taste. I reduced the carbonation by pouring from one glass to another, and got quite a creamy head, suggestive of live yeast, though there is no sediment. The beer actually tastes too clean for live yeast, though it could just be the sort of yeast used. Once the carbonation was reduced, the flavours were more pronounced, but the beer had lost some life, so suggesting that it had been artificially carbonated. The hops are firm - just a little too upfront for my taste, giving too much bitterness to the beer. The beer started out reasonably promising, but soon started to disappoint. robgibbens (432) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Dark amber color with little head. Mild nutty aroma. Taste is slightly bitter and crisp. Finishes clean. Pretty average, but very drinkable. r464 (2360) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2012
Malty but skunky, some earthy woodiness with a bit of caramel. Lingering finish, but not in a good way.
