Cloudy amber pour. A huge head...a gusher actually. Aroma smells of old stale cardboard. And maybe some rocky dirt. Flavor isnt much better. More cardboard and nastiness. DRAINPOUR.

jercraigs (10210) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2010
2010-07-03. Lightly hazy orange body, small creamy off-white head and lace. 3+ Flavour is modestly bitter throughout, light citrus hops (tropical, hints at floral, lemon), mild lingering tangerine. Mild malt is a bit odd/grainy and does not always play nicely with the hops. Aroma of muted citrus seeds, off-putting overtones that are not quite bile/sweat, more likely an odd variation on resiny/leafy hop character. Average to light palate. Odd. On tap at Hales, Seattle

Can from Beers of Europe. Pours hazy golden orange with a thin white head. Aromas of pine, creamy sweet malt, faint citrus. Taste is herbal bitter, grassy. Bitter finish with a light sweet linger.
