On tap at Lobby Bar at Hilton Universal City on 14 October 2017. Just what I needed after a 7.5km walk around Universal City. Dark amber and plenty hoppy. Easy to drink and went down well. Didn't expect to find anything other than macro pale lagers at the hotel so this was a pleasant surprise. j12601 (13033) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2017

Hazy amber beer, good cream colour head. Palate is smooth but has good trailing minerally carbonation. Thin malts, reasonably sweet. A fair bit of floral bitterness bitterness kicks in and then morphs in to a more mellow pine. Juicy orange and bitterish marmalade. Light spicy orange finish. Pretty satisfying.
From a bottle into a New Belgium 2016 stem glass. Pours gold with head and lace. Aroma of straw, hay, grains, minerals. Significant carbonation and biting mouthfeel. Flavors of bitter young grapefruit rind, grains, pale malt, toothpaste, straw hops. Overall big, bold, challenging and complex but decent. chadski (155) - California, USA - MAY 22, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2016 Supporting the local community. Quite dark amber color with heavy pine scents which move right into the flavor. Not much variation beyond that. Too heavy.
