4.04/5 rDev -0.2%
16oz. bottle poured into a nonic. Bottled 10-22-13
(A)- Pours a hazed deep burnt chestnut brown amber color. Produced a giant frothy off-white head with ridiculous retention. Tons of lacing.
(S)- An almost woody subtle nuttiness meets a dry grainy yeast component. Very subtle sweet citrus on the back end.
(T)- Very dry with a subtle grainy nuttiness and pine. Hoppy, but more on the pine side than citrus. Distinct, but subtle underlying caramel sweetness.
(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. Strong on the dry bitter pine side of hops, but it does have some sweetness and citrus on the finish.
(O)- Definitely a solid amber. Definitely on the hoppy side for the style but well-made. The quality of the beer is obvious, but its a bit steep for $7 a bottle.

4.18/5 rDev +3.2%
In a MBC pint glass this beer was a hazy rust color. There as a thick tan head, and a moderate amount of sticky lace.
Mostly a citrus aroma. Some grassy hops and caramel malt.
Grapefruit taste up front, followed by the grassy hops. Sweet caramel background.
A hop-forward beer, easy to drink.

4.2/5 rDev +3.7%
Dark honey colroed with a half inch head of oatmeal colored foam that lingers long, and leaves big webs and pinwheels of lace on the insides of the glass as it's drained.
Inviting aroma of toffee, cinnamon, brown sugar, and grapefruit.
Bright and pungent hoppy flavors upfront, full of pine and grapefruit, assertive bitterness. A subtle malt backbone rides beneath, but hops fully overpowers.
Full mouthfeel, puckers the cheeks, finishes with a carbonation tingle. Great beer.
