On tap at Frisco Taphouse: pours a clear deep copper amber with a clingy-lacing coating of cream-colored head. Has a lightly sweet toasted caramel malty nose with some resiny citrus hop notes. Starts with pretty good fullness and toasted malty sweetness with a pretty good amount of bitterness and hop flavor before a drier slightly nutty bittersweet finish. Pretty true to style, but could be a little more assertive.
Tap at Frisco. Pours clear amber to brown with a medium, froth off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is pine and resin hops, caramel malt and apple esters. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness with supporting malt, light fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. MadRobin (2988) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - JUL 23, 2013
On tap at Frisco Tap House & Brewery in Columbia, MD.
Densely hazy, muddy dark amber-copper-brown with a small khaki head and very good lacing.
Dull aroma of caramel, citrus and pine that tend to mush together and are difficult to pick out individually.
The taste is dominated by bitter floral hops with the a similar muddy mix of pine caramel and citrus as in the aroma.
Medium body and medium carbonation.
Overall, this was a very disappointing double IPA with a muddy color and muddy flavors and a muddy aroma. Push's single IPA was far better.
