12oz. can served in my Maudite tulip. Pours a hazy burnt orange/carmel hue with a loose, quarter inch off-white head that quickly dissipates into a soapy slick across the center and coalesces into a frothy band around the shoulders. Nose expresses citrus, rind and caramel notes. Taste consistent with nose; however much more muted and the promise of the nose comes off a bit disappointing in the flavor profile - malt and hop bill don't really dominate; however, more carmel than anything else. Finishes with an earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body (but closer to light), with a carbonation that falls just short of lively and a slight oiliness to the texture. Overall, a bit disappointing at the price point ($12.49 for a 4-pack). I want to support local brewers; however, I have to say that I'm pretty much done with these guys between what they are charging and the overall quality of the beers.

Poured from a 750ml. bottle into a La Fin Du Monde tulip glass.
The color is a orange/amber with some yellowish highlights. There is a big head on this beer with about three fingers of foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass.
The smell is pretty earthy with some of the Columbus hop aroma being present. The malts have presence here with as well adding to the earthy damp aroma.
The taste has a big push of juicy fruit flavor that seems to hinge on the bitterness that frames this beer throughout. This a touch of grapefruit but it gives into some melon flavor and some bready flavor that leads into the bitterness that comes in at the end to slap this beer down with a loud period.
The feel of this beer is a bit big. There is no denying the alcohol that weights here but does not take away from the drinkability of this beer. It's a pleasure going down.
