3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Nice slightly browned-orange in color with a medium-sized off-white head. Moderate pine aroma with orange zest and a vanilla malt backbone. Moderate bitterness that grows slightly in intensity bringing forth notes of rich leather and grapefruit flesh. Finish has a slightly sweet uptick with flavors of sugared lemon drops and green tea. As it warms, the sweet notes become more pronounced and flavors of dates and raisins become apparent within the rich malt base. Solid and left me wanting more.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on 5-26-2010. This bottled beer pours a medium sized white head, transparent gold body, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is fruity, pine, bitter, and floral hops. The taste is bitter, fruity, pine and some citrus hos. The palate is lightly tingly and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is quaffable, rather mild tasting for the style and worth trying,.

Had it out of a bottle. It had a beautiful amber hue and thick white head and thats it. It has a wet basement aroma and a not so good bitter beer taste. Could have been paste its prime.
