Reddish copper colored with a thick inch-high head of froth and foam that lingers long. Aroma of honied malt and orange peel. Rich flavor of citrusy hops, tangerine and red grapefruit, some orange rind, hints of pine. Some toffee and brown sugar notes as the malt tries to emerge from beneath the hops, but slowly gets pushed back down. Full mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. Slight warming of the cheeks, but the alcohol strength is well hidden. Really good beer.

Limited edition bottle from City Steam Brewery in Hartford, CT. This is the first beer in the brewmaster's series.
Appearance - light brown/caramel color shows that this beer has some malt backbone to it. Because of the high IBU's (100) I poured it into a Dogfish Head IPA glass. One finger of creamy/off-white head with great retention and lacing.
Smell - sweet malt and grassy hops
Taste - this brew is now 9 months bottled, and the original bitterness that I experienced has mellowed out quite a bit. It is very tasty and well balanced. This beer has a high alcohol (9.7% ABV) content, but is still very easy to drink.
Mouthfeel - leaves a nice coating on the palate that allows the flavors do their job.
Overall - one of the best beers that City Steam makes. I would like to see it more readily available. I was also surprised to see this release still available for sale at the brewery ($11 to go and $15 for table service).

Nice entry for city steam. Had on tap at source and bought to go and consumed over holidays. One of city steams most layered and nuanced beers. Too often big beers go out of whack. This is a balance of great aromatics and mouthfeel that benefitted from some nice aging. A big fan of this new specialty series from mr. Page. Bring on more!
