had this on tap after a hopslam at slows bbq, served in a goblet
appearance - a brownish color but lighter than i expected with a milk chocolate colored head, not to big but retained it for most of the beer, light carbonation
smell - smell of hops and malt up front, hops is more dominant, then it went into a slight citrus and other assorted fruit smell, finished with a slight oak scent
taste - tasted of bitter hops up front that moved into a nice sweet malt, then there was a healthy citrus and finished with a nice mellow oak flavor and slight alcohol sweetness, over all well balanced
mouthfeel - a bit thinner than i expected from the color but still a nice texture, really hit the spot being thirsty
drinkability - goes down easy, finishing on a mellow sweetness encourages one to take another sip to get back to the bitter hops, i could see this getting away from someone if they werent careful, also could be used to get a brown ale drinker come to the hoppy side
Serving type: on-tap

Enjoy by January 13.
Pours a slightly hazy amber with a frothy khaki head that lingers.
Pine, resin, and grapefruit are supported by sweet burnt sugar and toasted bread in the aroma. Pine dominates. Dark fruit notes of prunes and fig add intrigue.
Flavor begins with burnt breadcrust and deeply caramelized sugar, with underlying grapefruit pith, herbal tea, and pine, finishing fairly dry and bitter. Oak and resin linger in the aftertaste.
Body is a little full, with low carbonation and moderate alcohol warmth.
Interesting combination of flavors, thought the burnt character dominates and is slightly unpleasant.
Serving type: bottle
