22oz bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 4.99. No bottling date. Served in a Sweetwater snifter.
Pours tea brown with a half finger of pale head. Very little lacing.
Smells of citrus hops and a bit of caramel malt.
Taste follows the nose. Citrus rind, pine, caramel malt, mild nuttyness and slight toffee. A little nip of booze towards the finish.
A tad oily, medium thin body with moderate carbonation. Short, dry, bitter pine toffee aftertaste.
A solid offering but far from outstanding. Neither hoppy nor malty enough to fully commit to being either. Still a tasty occassional buy.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip glass.
The color is a dark black with maroon and dark brown highlights. There is about two fingers of brownish/tan head and small amount of lacing.
The smell has a citrus hop aroma that is surprising since the color was pretty dark. There is touches of grapes and figs here that do come out among teases of dark malt.
The taste is citrus at first with a big tangerine or grapefruit flavor. There is a flavor of caramel malt that tries to sneak past the hoppy fruit flavor but is pushed back by the return of the hop bitterness toward the end.
The feel of this beer is medium bodied and is pretty drinkable but does not seem to be as balanced as intended. It goes down pretty well little effort. With a little age this beer would even out and could be really fantastic. The hops would mellow a little and the malts would be showcased better.
