This poured an insignificant head but had a grand coloring and very fine lacing. The scent was malty or biscuity with a following of piney hops. Not too strong and very well weaved it was nicely subtle.

The taste was smooth and slightly sweet with a biscuit, malt backbone and a hoppy finish. Again, not strong or overpowering but well weaved for a clean taste.

This Ale is considered a flagship for one of the best breweries in the nation and it seems to hold true for a non-Imperial style.

This pours a golden amber. There’s’ an orange marmalade aroma and a bready toasted biscuit note which contrasts with the hop aroma. I find a similar orange marmalade flavor that’s dryly bitter with pine and orange peel on it. Nicely carbonated with a bitterness that lasts.

Pours deep clear amber with a small head. Aroma is huge floral grapefruit. First taste is pine hops with a tinge of grapefruit. Even more malt than expected. Beautiful fruit flavor without much bitter, citrus and caramel malts, grapefruits but not bitter, yum. Medium slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Easy drinking. Solid beer, but will have to check out Zombie Dust now.
