Canned 2/20/14 from Brevard :
Pours an amber-orange, with a very nice amount of foamy head. The surface head sustains, and the edges are fairly thick with bubbles, leading to some nice lacing. The nose is clay, earthy base with some fruitiness thrown in (mango, papaya) with a honey or caramel sweetness.

The taste starts right up front with a pine bitterness on top of a caramel, tropical fruit sweetness. I expected more malt up front, but am happy for hop-forward nature (even with an older can). The end taste, especially as the beer warms a bit, is a bit of candy-like sweetness. Even though the hops are the star of the show, I think the beer is actually pretty well balanced.

Had this in the past, but did not rate or review at the time. Recalled enjoying it, but have not grabbed any for a while. Will have to correct that in the future, and especially look to edit my review with a fresher can.

Appearance: Copper red with plenty of head (> 1 inch, somewhat due to the pour which was a little wobbly) that subsided to a thin cream-colored dusting across the top

Smell: Sweet hay

Taste: Malty and sweet, almost like oatmeal on the front end, with a touch of bitterness to the after-taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium, between thick and thin. Somewhat silky with a very mild after-taste that hangs around like all good bar bands after the show smoking cigarettes until sunrise.

Overall: Delicious, well-balanced, canned bliss
