I enjoyed two pints of this beer while in the brewpub in Charlottesville, VA. It had a cloudy, hazy, dark amber-copper color, with a thick look, and a creamy, off-white, medium-sized head that had average-to-good retention, and great cling and lacing. Its aroma featured a citrus and pine hops mix with a strong earthy-grainy presence, and lighter notes of floral, lemon, and yeast. The beer had a mostly bitter grainy flavor with some underlying malty notes and a very light, subtle sweetness. The body was somewhat creamy and wet, and the beer had average carbonation and life, with a filling, smooth, and full mouthfeel and body.

Aromas of toast, nuts, caramel, pine, and citrus fruit. Light brown-amber with a decent, light tan head. Dry with a hint of malty sweetness, and some savory nuttiness, balanced nicely by the hops. Light-medium bodied with average carbonation, finishes with earthy hops and nutty malts.

Drake (12487) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 30, 2013
Draft at Whole Foods Charlottesville. Pours a dark amber color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel, crackery malts, salt and umami. The taste matches with some faint hoppiness. My comment at the time was "hopped ramen." Weird beer. Medium bodied.
