ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - MAR 2, 2014
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a semi-hazy orange color. The head is two fingers high, with a shade thats just off-white. Retaining itself acceptably, it has a rocky texture and leaves goodly lacing behind. S: Citrus, and lots of it. Predominantly grapefruit, with a side of orange and just a suggestion of tropical fruit. Theres also a fair bit of sweet caramel malt, but it seems to be very well integrated with the hop character - creating an illusion of orange juice. Very promising aroma. T: Its slightly maltier than the aroma suggested, but still nothing that can be called a sweet mess. The hops are clustered on the front of the palate - bringing their citrusy goodness - while the finish brings forth an almost nutty tone. Some herbal, peppery bitterness (and, later, melon) augments the beer post-swallow. Its not intrinsically BALANCED per se, but the hop/malt combination is a unique combination that doesnt clash in any manner. M: Crisp like an IPA should be. Theres a bit too much body for my tastes, though. Luckily, this goes down easily thanks to its semi-bitter finish, healthy carbonation, and slightly coarse texture. O: This one is really delicious. Its prolific malt backbone actually helps it instead of detracting. Though I tend to prefer leaner, less malty IPAs, theres more than enough here to warrant another 6 pack purchase.

An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, hops, and caramel, leading to a bitter finish

Moderately hazed copper-golden color with a white head. Light to moderate citrus-orange aroma. Light piney hop character mostly citrusy; orange and some melon and a light bitter, citrus rind bite in the finish. Moderately sweet, moderate to heavy bodied.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated body semi-transparent yellow orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The weak aroma was hoppy and Irish Red malty. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of Irish red malt and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

12oz bottle pours with a near clear copper body that has thick gold edges and supports a light tan head. The aroma offers up lots of sweet smelling crystal malts, malts and a bit of dark fruity esters with just thin wisps of mineral, sort of earthy to spicy hops well off in the background. The taste however does deliver a tasty array of hoppiness. I get floral hops, a spicy mineral hop like sensation, full on bitter grassy hops and then a herbal earthy tea hoppiness. This doesnt have the standard IPA hops and thats great. Behind the hops are sweet dark crystal malt notes, thin sweet figs, some sweet malts and then a biscuit maltiness rounding things out. I like the taste with a bit of a different take on the hop bill but it still delivers tasty hoppiness.

Bottle. Dark orange pour, frothy head, nice lacing. Herbal, resinous hops, breads malt. Nicely balanced. Crisp and moderate bitterness. Enjoyable. Surprisingly good from a brewer that does not typically evoke high expectations.

Pours a deep golden amber with a thin white head. Light carbonation with some lacing. Nice aroma of sweet grass, pine resin, and citrus peel. Medium, light syrupy texture. Fairly smooth with a blend of hops and malt that leaves just a slightly bitter aftertaste. Not my favorite but pretty enjoyable.
