Here's another beer from bwyker.
Appearance: The pour is a bright, slightly cloudy apricot-orange topped by almost two fingers of frothy white head.
Smell: The aroma has citrusy hops, toffee, and a hint of grain.
Taste: This tastes like quite a bit like Firestone Pale Ale. The flavor profile has lemon and grapefruit in front of an earthy character, grain, sweet malts. Pine joins the lemon and grapefruit for a hoppy finish.
Mouthfeel: It's medium-bodied and chewy with plenty of carbonation.
Drinkability: This is a good beer with a nice English character for a unique change of pace from West Coast IPA's.

Notes are from 5/26
It's a dark one, almost a brown-orange-red with a fiery flare in the recesses and a brighter amber gleam outside. The head is an off-white cap just shorter than half a finger, but it keeps up well and leaves behind pretty good lace.
It has a sort of hybrid tone to it, seeming to incorporate the earthy, spicy, woody/leafy bitterness with brighter citrus and not-quite-dank notes along with lots of yeasty esters giving off dark fruits as well as almost tropical under the danker/earthier stuff. There's also just a twinge of alcohol noted with every sniff and sip, but nothing too heavily ethanolic to enjoy the overall very much.
There's a sort of earthy dankness that even translates to the feel, though it doesn't weigh down the medium body or take away from the brightness that also translates. Crispness comes out strong on the palate from front to back, as does smoothness in the semi-dry feel.
