750 ml caged and corked bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a hazy orange/amber color with about an inch light tan head. The head stuck around a little while, and there's a decent amount of lacing. The brew smells like citrusy hops (grapefruit, orange peel), caramel and bready malt, candied oranges and some raisins. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some pine hops, brown sugar and some general fruitiness. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit creamy with moderate carbonation. Overall I liked this brew. Maybe I should have drank this one fresher, but it's still good now. $10.99 a bottle.

Shared 750 l bottle.
Slightly hazy deep amber with a good head.
Modestly strong aroma followed by a much richer and more complex flavor. Great balance, as barrel aging effects meld with a generous load of mostly medium roast malts and a precise level of hopping.
O: highly recommended.
