On tap at the brewery during RBWG 2014. Pours a hazy amber with a near white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has an earthy citrus with a bit of pine and a sweet bread backbone. Flavor has a nice pine and sweet bread combination with a bit of grapefruit underlying as well as a touch of booze. rosenbergh (11578) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Draught at the Wedge, Asheville, NC.
Slightly cloudy amber colour with a small off-white head.
Fruity and resiny hops, moderate bitterness and malty sweetness in the aroma.
The flavour is strong... both in hops and alcohol. Piney and fruity hops, a truck load of sweetness... Is it possible to load a truck with sweetness? Sweet malt and alcohol. Tasty.

Draft in a taster at the brewery. Had this right after Iron Rail, which I guess was appropriate. Pours a cloudy bright orange- actually clearer than its lighter counterpart- with an off-white head that laces the glass. Notes of citrus fruits, caramel malts, pine resin, florals, and nectar. Medium-bodied, with a chewy, resinous mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. As with Iron Rail, I liked this better than I expected. Good imperial version. b3shine (8928) - Indiana, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Draft to taster at Wedge during RBWG. Looks good; a fairly transparent dark orange with eggshell lacing. Smells sweet, hoppy, and malty. Tastes like it smells with a nice moufeel. A good example of the style.
