Reviewed from notes. Drank 4/13.
12 oz bottle poured into a tumbler.

Pours a clear amber color. A decent head with little lacing.

Maybe this wasn't the freshest bottle, but this beer had a low hop flavor with a Carmal sweetness and a minor grapefruit hoppy aftertaste. I was expecting more hop flavor and aroma on this one, but it fit the bill as a red to a T, but it had a lot of hop hype, which is what I was looking for. A solid Beer, which if I lived in the Distro area I would pick up for sure again.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a slightly hazy deep reddish copper with a half finger off-white head.

Aroma is a blast of citrus. Tons of grapefruit and orange with a little bit of lemon. Maybe a slight bit of caramel from the malt but hops are really the main show.

The flavor continues the hop theme with loads of citrus. A strong bitterness takes hold just as the malt begins to make an appearance. Some toffee and caramel that definitely let you know this is an amber ale. The malt fades rather quickly as a slightly chalky bitterness lingers after the finish.

Overall, a really good beer but I just didn't find it mind blowing. It is not the best amber or IPA I have had but I would gladly have it again.

12oz bottle into a tulip glass. Bottled on 20th of March 2012. Batch #130222.

A - Beautiful, crystal clear, copper/golden color with little apparent carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass. Forms a 1-finger, white head from a vigorous pouring leaving a nice lacing on the glass.

S - A lot of aromatic hops. It's resiny, grassy, herbal. Really nice! Besides, the malt is quite present, adding a slight sweetness to balance the hoppy notes and some apricot, plums, melon. Simply made in heaven!

T - Waoo the taste is not disappointing either! A real complementary amount of hop and malt. The blend is just excellent!

M - Very smooth, no apparent alcohol. Perfect low carbonation. Medium body.

O - Just one regret: why didn't I buy more of this fantastic beer???

12oz bottler served in a snifter.
bottled date 02/07/11

pours a translucent burnished amber tone with a creamy finger-plus of beige head. decent retention and good lacing. great presentation.

nose packs an aromatic wallop of hops: citrus and floral, with a hint of malt in the background. really nice aroma. flavor delivers the promised hoppiness but complements it with more malt than i registered in the nose. could easily be mistaken for an IPA, characteristics overlap quite a bit. regardless, very tasty. some hoppy bitterness persists through the finish.

smooth, medium bodied (maybe a slight notch above) with average carbonation. fantastic beer, always something to look forward to in march, brightening the doldrums of winter's endgame.
