A: It has a dense, musky, and burnt orange color to it.

S: Had an orange, lemon and biscuit scent.

T: Citrusy and hoppy with a caramel malt flavor.

M: A medium bodied beer with medium carbonation.

O: I really like how well rounded this beer is, especially the caramel malt flavors it brought out. It's more enjoyable on a cooler day.

Bottle > Lagunitas Mason Jar

A - Pours a murky rust color, very thing head, but lacing is decent. A little yeas floating around in there.
S - Huge malt attack! Sweet malty aromas front of the nose, but followed by really grassy and earthy hop scents, kinda smells like a home brew.
T - Same as the aroma, malt blend up front coming at the end with the bitter hops, pine, a little mint.
M - Good feel to this beer, nice aftertaste, not too clingy from all the malts in this.
O - Solid effort by Fordham, a great malted up APA, that is full of good flavor, would love to revisit this beer again.

Part of the BOTMC package that arrives at the doorstep. Popping the top I get a malty red licorice smell with any hopping seemingly over powered. Anticipate a nice malt bomb. Pours to a barely translucent bright orange with a thin tan head that quickly disapates. Upon tasting, I am first hit with a nice heavy yet almost micro-carbonated mouthfeel. The taste then starts with some molasses and lots of caramel transitioning to black licorice, all the while accompanied by a funky yet intriguing bitterness that carries throughout and becomes chaulky in the finish. This brew was definitely hopped big early in brewing and it carried through well. A good brew that flirts between an ESB and a brown ale and has good bang for the buck.
