Pretty god beer. Poured cold, with smallish, cream-colored head that soon settled and almost no lace. Color is a clear deep, orange-copper-amber with plenty of bubble trails. Aroma is hop, malt, oak, spice. Flavor’s like nose, plus caramel and Is rich. Body is full, not too counter to its heavy bitterness, and has great carbonation. Finish is like flavor, with bitter hanging in there to the end.

12oz bottle from ABC Liquor in Orlando. Poured a clear pale orange body with a two-finger off white head. Aroma of Nilla wafers, milk (yeah milk), and starfruit. Medium-light body body and slightly sticky texture. Medium carbonation. Flavor is light butterscotch and pink grapefruit muted by piney long hop finish. A refreshing brew, starting with interesting spicy quality anf finishing like an IPA. Nice brew. Creative.

Pours a golden amber color with a large off-white head with good retention and lacing. The aroma is mostly malt with very little in the way of hops. The taste starts out with a good amount of malt and is followed by a lingering bitterness from the hops. I'm enjoying this one, it has a great balance between the malt and hops and is pretty drinkable for an 8% ABV beer. As the beer warms in the glass, the hops do become more pronounced.

Pours a clean orange-ish color with an off white head. In the aroma, a mellow and a sweet malt. In the taste, a sweet malt that fades into a dryer hairspray like alcohol presence. A small bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dry malt and small hairspray like aftertaste. Eh, I suppose it's ok, just a bit boozy.
