12oz bottle dated 081. Served in a pint glass.
A: Pours dark orange with very little head on the reasonably strong pour. A little head retention and a touch of lacing.
S: Smells like caramel and brown sugar. Maybe some funky yeast smell in there somewhere. Very light on the hop scent.
T: Disappointing, to say the least. Some hoppy bitterness and a touch of grassy flavor, but not in a good way. The hops are mostly just there to make it bitter. Tons of brown sugar and bread flavors. Sorta tastes like a bittersweet sandwich. Not detecting a ton of diactyl, but it's gotta be there somewhere.
M: Reasonably thick for the style, with moderate to low carbonation. A little more carb would have been nice. That being said, the mouthfeel is the best aspect of the beer.
O: A little below average for the style. I'll try it on tap someday and re-review in case this is a bad/old bottle (it may have been bottled in March 2009 for all I know).

I’ve had this many times before, but, having just joined the site, I decided to write a review this time. The beer is dated 6/3/14 (about two months old). It pours a straw yellow that borders on copper under certain lighting. The aroma is pleasant with a subtle citrus characteristic, but predominantly earthy resinous hops. The taste has more citrus than the nose would suggest and is full of orange and lemon zest. The beer finishes with a sturdy, resinous hop bitterness that lingers on the tongue for awhile. It is medium bodied with a modest amount of carbonation, which suits the style well. Overall, a solid beer. At a reasonable price, it is a nice go-to beer.
