McGraths in Harrisburg First beer poured from the newly acquired keg. Yes I am thrilled about this!
This beer was poured an amber gold color that was crystal clear, and decently carbonated. The head that was created was beige in color and was thick, creamy, rich, full and sticky in consistency, and very long lasting. The lace that was formed was creamy in texture, sheety at first then spotty delicate in other areas, but really sticky. The aromas that came from the glass were ooh so complex, first pine needles/Christmas trees hit you, then a light citrus hop (grapefruit like) aroma comes forth, then a surprising aroma of flowers - either tulips or a dogwood tree comes forth, all kind of earthy/springy smells are always present, then as it warms spices (allspice) becomes noticeable, then grapes. The aroma is really fresh and clean. The tastes were not as complex as the aromas, but really nice. Tastes of pine needles, fresh hops, a citrus bite in the front and middle, earth tones throughout, some roasted malts (light), crunchy fall leafs, and allspice as it finishes. A dry finish to each swallow. The aftertaste was mostly dominated by piney hops. The body was medium. This is a creamy, smooth beer that is not overly hopped, and is well blended. As this beer warms and mellows, all aromas and flavors blend like a perfect dance. A well-done job from the Troegs brewery. I would like to see this as a permanent stallion in your stable.

One of my favorite beers. Can't get enough of it during its season. Nice balanced taste with a nice hop bite on the back end, not too overpowering, correct for the style. I'll be depressed with its off the shelves! Better stock up while it's around!

A - This is a reddish orange, clear beer, with an almost white head, not too extensive, but with significant lacing.
S - Whoa! The hit of peach and fruit comes blazing through, chased by grass and citrus, with a hint of pine, as well. The fist wiff made me think of biting into a tart bright, slightly under-ripe peach. Needless to say, I was impressed.
T - Even if the promise of peach in the nose is not fulfilled, this hoppy trip is a wonderful mix of fruits, now more citrus. Think orange and lemon, with sweetness like a peach coming underneath, andcaramel and other malty notes. Pine and grass are present, too, making for a very robust hop experience. A snappy sour and bitter bite closes things out. Nothing to complain about here.
M - Given the explosion of flavor, I was expecting a real drying at the close. It is there, but not nearly as harsh as you might expect.
O - Wish this one was available at home, for sure. This is an excellent beer, with great balance, that nevertheless lays down major hop flavor without compromise. I enjoyed this one, for sure.

Pours deep clear copper color with tight 1 finger head.
Smell us earthy, spicy and pungent. fresh bready malt apparent as well.
First taste is good wack of earthy, grassy hops with prominent citrus and bitterness. Has a sweetness as well and not subdued at all. Some sugary caramel notes. Nice balance here. The sweetness and blend of bitter and citrus hops play of one another back and forth.
Really thick and syrupy. Chewy to say the least. but moderate carbonation. Leaves a tanginess on your toungue
Nicely balanced ale. Has a variety of flavors that blend well together but nothing earth shattering. Well crafted for sure.
