Have loved this beer for a year. Not sure why I haven't reviewed it yet.
A - there is possibly a half finger of head. Color is an off tan with a hint of orange. Body is mostly cloudy. A funky indian red/orange in color.
S - just as I remember it. So much malt. Sweet biscuit, caramel, and brown sugar. So good.
T - I think the beer is starting to fall off. Was so much better about two months ago. This is my second bottle like this. otherwise it is just like the nose. Tons of malt, caramel, and bread.
M - spot on carbonation. Body may be a little thin but not bad.
O - still love this beer. Just my style, though from what I can tell it isn't everyone's.

A - Pours a cloudy amber-copper color with a half-finger of frothy off-white head. The head fades down fairly quickly leaving behind some lace.
S - Aroma is a mix of grapefruit and citrus hops with some pine hops, sweet caramel and biscuit malts, and some oak and booze.
T - Starts off with a mix of grapefruit, pineapple, orange, and other citrus hops with some bitterness and some sweet caramel malt. Through the middle, some pine hop comes through with some more bitterness alongside some oak, vanilla, and biscuit. The finish is a mix of sweet caramel malts and grapefruit hops with some bitterness, sweet bready malts, oak, and a touch of booze.
M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and bitter finish.
D - Very drinkable. Really nicely balanced with a good hop profile and the oak is really nicely incorporated.
