A: The pour is a dark golden amber sort of color with a finger’s worth of off-white head.
S: The front end of the nose is a strange blend of citrus, pine, and herbal hops and butterscotch. The plain butter starts to come through more as the beer warms up.
T: There is a mild bitterness to this beer along with plenty of bready malts. There is a touch of piny and herbal hop notes along with a strange buttery character. Sort of like browned butter, perhaps.
M: The body is medium and the carbonation is pleasantly assertive and lively.
D: I can’t really say that I enjoyed this beer. Too much diacetyl (although any is too much) just ruins this beer. coldbrewky (1730) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - AUG 21, 2009
Draft with dinner with a co-worker. We were underdressed for the shirt and tie crowd. First class service with a few stutters did not overshadow the unpretentiousness of this solid IPA. It was also a bosnus that Hannia was our waitress. Tannish green head sits upon an umber bdoy that wavers in the light from amber to deep brown. Nose of hops covered in caramel. Hops are strong thru the body and fade slightly at quick finish. A nice one. kevin62 (267) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2008

on tap-pours a thin rich light tan head and copper/red color. Aroma is citrus, secondary medium malt. Taste is dry citrus-bitter grapefruit/some metallic, secondary medium malt-some caramel. For the first third a bit rough, then the malt starts to balance out the hops. Nice.
