Finger plus of orange tinged tan foam, even with a good amount of larger bubbles achieves a thickness and solid retention, slow dissolve without much dimpling, likewise excellent stick to the lacing residue, glass needs to be washed to get it out. Fully opaque without seeming filmy, rich glow in the redwood to mahogany, amber doesn’t really do it justice, virtually no fade at the rims or glass bottom. The nose is packed with scents without getting heavy or inert, super-ripe tangerine to grapefruit citrus and molten milk chocolate leads the bunch, fresh honey, butterscotch, cooling multigrain bread, cashews and Brazil nuts, flowers, has lemongrass, forest floor earth and lichen like growth to bring things into balance, very light pepperiness, remains highly accessible without sacrificing complexity for those seeking it. Full-bodied, the creamy mouth entry shifts into a drier, more tingly feel as the hops assert themselves and the carbonation uses its tight weave to drum out a steady beat against your tongue. Orange, tangerine, pink grapefruit citrus mainly sweet but definitely has a sour edge as well. The milk chocolate remains the primary malt flavor, butterscotch and coconut flakes next, doesn’t push things too far. Ample peach, apricot, pear, yellow apple fruit with a nod towards pineapple and guava. Some pine and flowers, less earthy here but perhaps more minerally. Ridiculously easy to drink.

Bottled on 9/26/13.
Pours a murky dark orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, brown sugar, citrus zest, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with earth and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with very earth forward aromas and flavors.
