Draft at the Bruery. Pours hazy copper with a fizzy beige head. Tastes like sweet citrus, marshmallow, doughy malt, and citrus hops. Very interesting. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like sweet citrus hops, light floral, and candied malt. lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2015
Draught @ The Bruery Tasting Room, Placentia, CA. Pours a dark hazy amber colour with a red hue and a white foamy head. Aroma of red berries, herbal notes and wood. Flavour is rich with notes of red berries, mild toffee-ish sweetness, graininess, wood and herbal bitterness. Medium bodied. Dry and herbal finish. Good.

750ml, fresh. Pours a hazy, dark, burgundy-brown color with a tall, foamy, khaki tinted head. Slowly settling to a thin but lasting patch, the head leaves behind tattered flares of hard lace on the glass. The nose is loaded with sharp citrusy hop components, including orange peel and juicy white grapefruit most prominently. Mild, generic dark fruits enter the fold, along with a light, dry caramel malt contingent and lightly seasoned, toasty, vanilla-kissed oak. Flavors follow suit, with a somewhat muddled and non-descript malt base of mixed caramelized grains showing beneath a bright, crisp, citrusy-herbal hop billing. The palate is smooth up front, with moderate carbonation and a whipped sort of feel in the foreground. It dries out a bit towards the back end, staying well away from any annoying residual sugars. Good beer. It’s is tasty now, but feels like it will surely fall apart within a few short weeks. drowland (8676) - Georgia, USA - JAN 29, 2011
1/15/11. Bottle at the Sea Bass tasting thanks to hopscotch! Huge fresh hop aroma with a sweeter somewhat disappointing flavor. drewbeerme (3920) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2011
Draft at hopleaf, nose has citrusy hops, plasticy caramel malt, flavors stale doughy malts, citrus, grapefruit, oak, hints of vanilla, sweet booze finish. Perhaps a little fresher this could be good but as is not impressive.

pours a redish brown with an off white head. Big Centennial hop nose and taste. Also picked up the woodiness from the barrel. There is a lot going on in the beer the back tast was for sweet and citrus fruits, spices, and malt. Interesting beer. presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 9, 2011
Bottle. Very dark hazy amber with a too thick long lasting head. Head may be in part to hotel plastic cup. Super spicy aroma is a bit of a surprise: pumpkin spice meets poultry seasoning. Body is thick. That same weird spice note returns on the tongue along with a citrusy sourness. Is all that funk from the oak!? corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2012
Pours a dark golden orange/apricot color with a 1.5 finger white head that settles into a lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.
Slightly earthy aroma with lots of sweet malt notes, bready yeast and subtle funk. Hints of toffee, caramel, biscuit and light fruit. Not as hoppy as expected.
Medium bodied with a dry, resinous hop presence that lingers over sweeter notes into a dry finish.
More hops than nose suggests. Subtle creamy texture with some faint citrus that gives off some sweetness to balance the malt presence. Hints of caramel, toffee and bready yeast but hops are still prominent. . Decent amount of dry bitterness but still well balanced with above average drinkability.
