bottle @ House of 1000 Beers / New Kensington PA --- Aroma of malt, hops, and alcohol. Hazy brown color, beige head that is slow to drop, strips of lace. Taste is malt and dark fruit that grows stronger and heavier as it moves through light carbonation to a finish that has hops, fruitcake fruit, and alcohol. Strong and heavy. Half a bottle is enough for one night. asheft (3082) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2016
Bottle--thanks Thomas! Potent rustic, minty hops and coffee aroma and accents of citrus fruit. Sweet coffee and chocolatey toffee flavour with lots of earthy, minty, and resinous hops. Assertive bitterness. Medium full body, medium carbonation, smooth and crisp. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2015

Purchased a 22 oz. bottle @ Wegmans in Wilkes Barre, PA. Darker ruby/ brown color with thin head. Aroma is a mild pine with a deeper caramel and light citrus over top the caramel. The base malt is caramel toffee with some toasted grain. The hops and bitterness has a West Coast feel with a solid amount of pine with citrus as an after thought. The bitterness has a resin feel that lingers for a good amount after the sip. The ABV doesn’t show itself much and overall a nice drink.
