Poured a deep copper color with a small off-white head. Strong grapefruit hop aroma. Some alcohol notes. Bitterness starts fairly quickly. Short malty beginning. Some nutty notes. Grapefruit flavor in the middle then all bitterness for a long dry finish. The malt and sweetness opens up a good bit as the beer warms up

(12oz. bottle, courtesy of ilovedarkbeer) Pours a lightly hazy amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma of Pine-Sol, grass, caramel, toasted grain, and citrus. Flavor of hops (pine, earthy), caramel malt, and a hint of cinnamon.

Was this an amber, really? It doesn’t fit the usual profile--it is so hoppy (lovely grapefruit and pine), so strong (abv), and so well rounded with malty foundations, I thought it must be a double IPA or something. It is definitely a fine beer. As the first beer I drank since Dec. 26th, I raised my glass in a toast of honor to John Django, newborn son of Jazz88--may there be a great life ahead for you, one that conceivably could take you to the next century, in the year 2100. That’s pretty mind-blowing to me.

Bottle thanks to ilovedarkbeer. Smell is hops, grapefruit, other fruits, and pine. Look is amber color not much head. Taste is pine, fruity, grapefruit, and some malts. Ok.

fly (1479) - austin, Tejas, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2008
Very pleasantly surprised. I have come to have a distrust of Xmas beers, but when a ccoworker mentioned it being rather hoppy I decided to give it a try. Had one and nearly downed it followed by opening another and then another. Do I need description beyond that? Not best beer ever, just darn good and session beer for those that are heading to get way sloshed.

mmmbeer (1417) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2008
12 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured transparent brownish tan, medium carbonation of tiny bubbles. One finger off white head formed and tried to lace. Hearty aroma of floral and citrus hops with malt in the background. Hits the mouth with a medium body, hops come in from the start like an IPA, malt is there and balanced, middle holds up, finish has a touch of sweetness intertwined with hops. Very enjoyable, might have to have 1 or 2 or 20 more today.

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 24, 2008
hoppy aroma, dark chestnut brown hue with little head. well balanced with a oil fluidity.

Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - DEC 23, 2008
bottle thanks to swalden28. poured amber with a thin off white head. aroma of grass, pine, floral hops. flavor of grass, hops, and some bitter. once again just not my idea of a winter brew.

On tap tonight at the Blue Door Pub. Pour a nice amber color with caramel aroma. Flavor was a little bitter with a warming nutty alcohol aftertaste. Have had from the bottle as few times before and remember it being a lot better. I may buy a sixer and re-rate

Not a bad beer at all. Rich amber in color with a nice off white head. Very hoppy aroma. Flavor had a citrusy hint to it with a great hoppy, clean almost sweet finish. Great beer.
