Clear amber. Fruity and caramel geapefruit aroma. Apple skin and light fruit kiwi flavors. Sticky full bodied. evanlarkin (307) - Northfield, Minnesota, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Pours a clear ruby red, with a modest white head. Aromas are definitely malt forward, with a decent backbone of citrus hops, mostly grapefruit. Taste is on the sweeter side, some caramel flavor, a certain doughiness, balanced by more citrusy hops and a lemon zest. Bitter, clean finish. Nice.

Bottle. Clear dark cherry amber pour, thin carbonation and an aroma of light malty hops. Flavor is nice meld of caramel, spicy hops and finishes incredibly smooth for 9.5%. Really nice. tmoreau (4593) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - NOV 11, 2013
On tap at 2 Bro’s Roundhouse for their Revelry Party. Although dispensed to plastic, still showed a very clear & bright copper color, with a decent head of soft white head foam, and lasting, curtainy cling to the lacing. The aroma was sweet fruit and caramel, with citrus as orange & grapefruit, and a touch of resin. Medium to full bodied, the taste’s main attractions were a strong hop bitterness that was citrusy, rindy, earthy, and lingering, and a balancing malt content with non-clowing, but noticeable sweetness that I’m sure will become a dominant note with age. Warming, not hot, and quite tasty. A good reason for having a tasting party with friends! bhensonb (15612) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Bottle from BottleSelect.com. Pours bright ruddy copper with a slight dark beige head. Aroma is malty with rather earthy hop. Full bodied. Flavor is earthy/resin over rather roasted malt. There’s a slight burn. I’m betting it’s hops. Finishes more resin than earthy. Great stuff.

12oz bottle poured into a goblet.
Almost clear deep copper color with reddish hues and a small beige head.
Piney hops, with nice nuttiness, some dried fruits, toffee and caramel. Faint oxidation.
Sweet juicy malt, with firm bitterness, some alcohol burn and faint rum raisin notes.
Full body, quite heavy, long alcoholic finish, soft carbonation and overall interesting though too strong. kerenmk (5038) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 11, 2013

Bottle shared at kerenmk’s place. Clear deep red-amber with a beige head. Aroma of piney hops, a bit stale, and caramelly malt, slightly cookie-ish. Flavor has sweet chewy malt, caramelly and a bit biscuity and a bitter resinous hoppy finish with a bit of pine and light stale notes. Medium to full-bodied, a bit oily, with some alcohol. A bit too heavy.
