Pours hazy dark golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel and citrus. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
Amber pour. Whitish head. Citrus hops and a pretty good malt backbone. Flavors are much the same. Grapefruit peel, citrus, caramel malt. Pretty good.

Bottle… Clear amber ale with a small, frothy, white head. Good retention. The biscuity, earthy aroma offers additional mild notes of honey and pine. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with lively carbonation. The flavor leans way onto the bitter side of balance, even as the beer approaches room temperature. Good toffee and biscuit malts serve as an ample backbone, but can’t restrain the biting, earthy, spicy hops. Lengthy, bitter, and then dry finish.

Draft at Green Leafe Newtown. Pours turbid dark straw with off-white head. Nose is resiny hoppy, fruity, malty, with some spice. Tastes smooth, rich, complex, very hoppy with well balanced malt and late tropical fruit and spicy notes. This one was very good. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 25, 2011
