3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - on tap at Proof Brewing Company. Dark copper pour, thick sticky white head. Aroma has a nice spruce presence. Bold flavor with plenty of citrus bitter goodness, some juicy fruit gum sweetness and a back end of spearmint. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky.
Poured a an orange color at the Gainesville Brass tap with aromas of light hops, malt, light ginger and some grass. Flavors were muddled ginger, and light hops, light dirt as well, not sure what they were trying to do here, would maybe try again from the brewery, but would have to be fresh.

Malty, but muted nose. Clear bronze tan. Filmy, bone-colored head. Good tap handle. Coconut and lemongrass (or lime leaves) up front. Parched malt, savory and mineral tones. This has an unpleasant bittering that kinda sticks on the back corners of the tongue. Finishes out with a toasty coconut oil coating on my tongue. Interesting, worth a try. On tap, Whole Foods, Tallahassee.

Pours copper with a medium white head. Aroma is mild hops - not much else. Taste is actually pretty interesting with bitter earthy hops up front and a lingering bitter finish barely revealing the ginger. If earth could come in the form of a beer, this would be it. fluffy (2472) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2014
an interesting experiment, what with hops and ginger mingling, but really pretty odd. BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2014
On draft at the brewery. Pours golden orange color, clear, with a very small white head. Not much aroma going on here with light bitter pine and some other unrecognizable faint aromas. Flavor is some bready malts, light grass and line hop, not much influence of the adjuncts, a slightly dirty finish. Medium bodied, slightly resinous, with medium carbonation. Not bad but not exciting and the expected flavors don't really add much or come through in any interesting way.

@FBG Brewers Ball-on tap-offwhite-hazy gold. A-floral/resin. T-floral/spice hop bite, sweet lt/med malt. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2013
On draft at Brewers’ Ball 2013. Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is nice caramel backbone with a bit of spice and some mild heat. Flavor follows with nice big caramel and some spices with mild heat, some grapefruit, and a mild bitter finish. Medium in body and nice overall. DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Clear orange in red in color. Notes of cereal on the aroma with a feeling of under brush. Roasted hop feel on the palate. Earth and pine hops. Good overall. DialSquare (5028) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Growler from Proof. Gold pour with a thin white and spotty lacing. Aroma is spicy, ginger and floral hops. Tastes are caramel malt, pine, citrus rind, woody, herbal and peppery spices. Kind of a lot going on in the finish - hard to decipher. Dries out with long bitter aftertaste. Ok.
