  • Pours clear with an inch of solid, tan foam. Froth forms as it holds it head better than average.

    Aroma makes me think that it might be a touch old. Resinous hops give thoughts of citrus and pine that used to be. Lots of caramel, sweet malt with a hint of toffee.

    Taste follows the nose. Resinous hops leave a grapefruit bitterness in the finish along with some pine. Lots of caramel sweet balances the big hops. Grapefruit bitterness lingers a bit, softly.

    Medium body with medium or better carbonation while dries the palate.

    As I mentioned might be old and the only way to know what the age has taken out of it is to have it fresh. But, the beer is still damn tasty. Sign me up again. Enjoy!

    Appearance: Dark amber 'mica brown'. Thin head with decent cling to glass.
    Taste: Classic "C" hops, taste great, but a bit rich- maybe it's suppose to be.
    Very easy to drink for a double. I like it.
