Bottle… Murky, caramel-colored ale with a small, wispy, off-white head. Fruity, caramely aroma. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Good balance. Reserved caramel sweetness; moderate grapefruit pith bitterness. Lengthy, crisp, lightly bitter finish. Thanks go out to growler for shipping this bottle!

12oz bottle courtesy of kinz. Beer from new state for me so special thanks pal. Aroma of a malted cany like a candy carinival apple. Copper body with off white head and mild lacing. Sweet malted caramel and the dry hoppy finish of an IPA. Smooth and easy on the palate for a strong ale. Ahhh... argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 5, 2009

2008 Bottle - Thanks CaptainCougar! - Pours hazy copper with a small off white head...aroma is faint citrus and pine, sweet malt...flavour is okay balanced front end bitters and caramel malt, finishes with a lingering hoppiness... not very complex and not incredibly well put together, but still fun to try...

Bottle: Hazy deep orange with a dense off white head. Hops are prominent in the aroma, with some pale malt sweetness and grassy character. Light & creamy on the palate. Grassy, lightly catty hops with resiny bitterness. Simple overall.

Pours a clear bright copper orange with a thin, spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of grapefruit and orange with some sticky caramel sugar. Body starts with good fullness and sweet caramel honey character balanced with a heavy citrus bittering hoppiness before a drier, slightly warming finish. Could be a little cleaner and better balanced, but still a decent brew. goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2009
Poured a hazed amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of oranges and aged malt with some piny notes. Fruity malty flavor with a bitter finish. Light-medium body. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 3, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a medium copper with a thinning head. Aroma is a thin grassy hoppy mess with fusels and harsh solvent character. Alcohol is apparent in the flavor as well, grassy, harsh and a syrupy honey sweetness and a harsh astringetn finish. beerbill (3619) - Laurel, New York, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Its hysterical looking at my notes how much my handwriting had degraded by this point in the night. Then after sampling this beer, Larry pulls out another six pack! As for this beer, thank you to Dickinsonbeer for sharing. Pours a hazy dark gold. Pleasant aroma of sweet caramel, orange and grapefruit. The flavor is quite similar with caramel up front followed by some orange and grapefruit. Mild bitterness at the finish; I was expecting more given the citrus presence. Still, overall a decent brew. nuplastikk (6289) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 27, 2009
12oz bottle. Thick unfiltered brown color. Sweet piny hop aroma, a little grapefruit, had me thinking IIPA. The finish is all malt though, albeit saturated in hop. On the thick and syrupy side, Hmm..weird. Maybe a Double American Pale Ale. Some GM-like orange tastes, but overall a pretty bland offering.
