look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Rich amber with fluffy ivory-colored head with really nice retention... thick and luscious with bubbles in a state of suspended animation and thick sheeting lace hanging all over the glass.

S - Oh, sweet hoppy goodness; notes of orange, grapefruit, mango, lemon, tangerine, and pine. There is a nice dose of malt as well in the background providing some sweet caramel and biscuit flavors. Secondary herbal flavors also emerge with a bit of black pepper, and a decidedly crisp mintiness lingering on the finish.

M - Moderate, nearly medium-light body with fairly light carbonation. Pretty smooth and silky with a bit of prickliness.

D - This is a nice drink to be sure... well done.

3.19/5  rDev -22.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Bottle purchased at Bob's Bar in Columbus, OH.

This was unknowingly purchased a month past its best by date (3/13/14) so take this review with a grain of salt, and know that this beer does not hold up well with time.

Pours a dark peach color, with a half inch head, and a little bit of lacing down the glass.

Smells include honey, bitter grapefruit, and alcohol.

The hop flavor has faded a lot here, replaced by the typical honey-ish sweetness. The diminished hop flavors have also allowed the alcohol burn to be more present. What hop character is left is of the bitter grapefuit variety. Possibly some pine in there.

Medium bodied, sweet and sticky mouthfeel, low carbonation.

Would like to try this again much fresher.
