Dark amber red with a nice tan head. Lots of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is so/so...sweet carmel malts and red candy sugar. Taste is mostly malt sweet, with some bittering hops left on the palate. Overall, not too bad. thornecb (6058) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 7, 2013

Bottle-12 pk beer camp purchased at Total Wine in Springfield, VA August 2013
Pours deep copper hue with a lovely soapy lite kacki head. Nose is very resionous, pine, grapefruit, caramel, toasted grains, Smells awesome! Perfect marriage of hops and malts. Flavors are very resinous hops, nice sweet toasted malts, caramel, lots of resin. Lots of piney resinous bitterness here. Body is full, lush and somewhat over carbonated however, that aids to this beer actually. Its like Bigfoot in some ways, just not quite as big and./or malty. fantastic brew! dhunter151 (590) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - AUG 6, 2013

Pours dark reddish brown with medium beige head. Aroma is sweet malt and floral and pine hops. Taste is sweet caramel malt upfront with some juicy sweet citrus on the follow through. Aftertaste is lingering sweet citrusy hops. Palate is thin and somewhat sticky. Overall nice balance and very drinkable. Thisis12ptfont (1221) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Aroma of strong hops. Deep crimson brown appearance with nice lacing. Strong flavor of hops upfront with a secondary wave of maple, brown sugar, cinnamon and oak. Alcohol is under the radar on this one. Overall, tastes like a standard american strong ale. Not bad at all yet, nothing really special or outstanding about this one. bhensonb (15753) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle from the Folsom BevMo. Pours dark ruddy copper with a slight beige head. Aroma is malty with a touch of citrus. Med body. Flavor is malty with a heavy dose of citrus/resin hop. Maybe even something earthy in here. It’s tending towards a dry finish, but the malt is strong. Drinks very nicely. abcfan (928) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2013

Draft. Caramel beer with a cream head. Light grapefruit and light caramel aroma. Grapefruit and caramel flavor with pine and light aspirin. Medium bodied. Grapefruit and caramel linger with light pine and light aspirin.
