Orange-tinged dark amber; aroma shows rich fruity hoppiness (cherry, plum), plus woody notes, and lightly smokey crystal malts. Nicely balanced beer...grapefruit, wood, chewy earthiness. The crystal almost gets out of hand, but not quite. Fresh-tasting, with a lingering bitterness. Not as bombastic as Alpha King, nor as straightforward as SNPA, this is a fairly unique rendition of the style. rlgk (18843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2007

Bottle at the Rose & Crown, Banff. It pours clear amber, with a thin-medium off-white head. The nose is brown bread, toast, earth and light spice. The taste is caramel, toast, wood, leaf, strong malt backbone, leather and light spice, with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not bad….

Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Rotem. Clear bright reddish amber with an off-white head. Aroma of stale hops and some malt. Flavor has a bit of caramelly and biscuity malt, a bit of hops and a moderately bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Decent. Dogbrick (14316) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2011
Pours a copper-orange color with a medium creamy off-white head that burns away steadily. Patchwork lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrusy hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of piney hops, malt and citrus. The finish is bready malt up front with a short citrusy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Amber color. Earthy, oily citric hopaaroma. Earthy hopbitter flavor, citric with licorice. Blackcurrant. Longish aftertaste. Hint of metal in the finish. The balance could be better, but this is a tasty ale. j12601 (13298) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 16, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear coppery ruby browned amber with a vigorous large softly mocha hewn beige head. Very nice caramel malt and big hop presence. Medium bodied, a bit on the sweet side, and I guess all of the carbonation went to the enormous head since the beer itself seems just slightly flatter than I’d like. Nice light bitter hop finish. Decent and sessionable. Should have saved this guy until my curry later tonight.
