Bottle, thanks to theEpeeist! Pours cloudy amber, small off-white head, dissipates quickly, good lacing. Aroma is malty, caramel, toffee, dark breads, pine. Flavor is medium sweet and medium bitter, malty and hoppy, tastes a bit oxidized. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Lingering strong bitter finish.

22oz bottle. Not poured so can’t comment on appearance. Had an earthy/floral aroma. The label says there are a lot of hops, but the hops flavor definitely isn’t as strong as an IPA. Full bodied, smooth finish. Very unique beer.

redlight (2325) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2010
shared by Beerlando. Big nose, malty with bread notes and hoppy with pine and grass notes. Pours amber with a dense white head. Rich and creamy with caramel malt notes with hints of molasses with an earthy bitterness and resin flavor. Very nice beer and enjoyed reading the history on the bottle, great job!

sjjn (7) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 25, 2013 does not count
Beautiful bright orange pour with a soft white cap. Aroma is very fruity with some floral notes and alcohol. A bit too hot though to pick out much in the taste past the alcohol & hop bitterness.
