Had this beer on tap at Tap 42's Cigar City event. Good beer with a pretty dark red amber color. Really likin the color. Not too heavy and very well balance taste with hops and citrus notes. Feel the nice caramel taste, very smooth finish. Hops feel lingers in he mouth, great complexity. Very refreshing.

The Lost Spring Break 2012 Beer Reviews - Chapter Seven

Dense whipped off-white foam tops a dark amber body with shiny copper highlights.

Big powerful and inviting citrus aroma assaults the nose.

Deep caramel foundation. Breadliness. Juicy fruit follows. Good bitterness that carries through a long aftertaste.

Smooth, creamy medium-plus mouthfeel.

A surprise to find on the shelf on vacation, and I hope to find it again someday.
