Seasonal on tap growler from the brewpub pours a clear dark amber with an avg tan head, excellent lacing & mostly lasting. Light aromas of caramel malt and citrus. Pleasant light sweet flavor of caramel and lightly toasted malt on the front with a pronounced note of moderate hop finish, the bitter hops round out the heavy rich malt with an avg duration. The complexity of flavor & nearly 8% ABV makes for a beer to linger over & enjoy slowly.

Tap. Pours clear tawny with a small, frothy white head, short retention with good lacing. Aroma is earthy, floral and pine hops, plums and figs with cookie malt. Flavor is malt forward with heavy hops and bitterness, fruity esters and a dry finish.

(draft 7/13/11). Amber color with light cloudiness. Small off white head. Moderate citrus aroma, with light sweet malt and light alcohol. Flavor of the same. Avg duration. Light alcohol finish. Slick texture. Soft carbonation. Spare lacing.

from brewery in a taster. Looks pretty darkish red. Not too much on the nose except a bit of amber malts. No hops on smell. Lovely tastes of amber malts with an alright bitterness. Alright lacing. Overall 8 of 10. I wish i could have bought a bomber of this!

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear dark amber with a tan head. Aroma of caramel malt, bitter hops, hop oils, citrus. Flavor of more fruity malt with a spicy hops finish, bitter hops, heavy rich malt. Nice and hoppy, with a rich malt base, certainly a little heavy alcohol-wise. Good stuff though, best Phantom Canyon beer! 7/4/8/4/15 [3.8/5]
