Pours a hazy golden/amber/orange with a thin white head. Nice rentention, and laceing. Aroma is of grassy hops, and fruit. Body is medium with some carbonation. Taste is explosion of fruit ,carmel, candy, and hops. This is a unique flavor. A must try.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12oz : tulip

Hazy, coppery orange with a foamy, creamy white head.

The nose and taste follow the same profile of a sweet, caramel malt base highlighted by spicy, herbal , lightly citrusy hops.

Medium+ body, foamy carbonation.

Not a typical Winter Warmer but a well done, enjoyable one.

12oz bottle in a standard pint glass.

A- Pours a hazy golden-orange color with a durable 1-plus finger head that leaves abundant fat-ring lacing. There's some small bubble carbonation visible through the haze.

S- At first, it smells like a good retro lager. After some breathing and warming, the candied apple and caramel aromas make their way. Some citrus hop aroma fights for equal billing, but the sugary fruit dominates.

T- Citrus and earthy hops balance the caramel malt and apple fruit flavors. There's enough orange citrus for kick.

M- Medium body with a firm feel thanks to the light carbonation that works well here. I get the hops and bitterness first with the fruit, primarily apple, on the end.

O- Warming and inviting brew. The 58 ibus and7.6% abv are matched well. I'd like more aroma next time.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a rich copper color with a white head. Citrus, malt, and and a fruity yeast. In the taste, piney hops and a bit of earthiness. Slight note of oxidation, with a dry cardboard/papery note along with a hop bite. A bit of toast and a slightly more than balancing bitterness. Lightly spucy notes. Briskly hoppy, but with a firm malt foundation. Medium to full bodied, crisp and very drinkable. Overall, this is a very good ale, with a hop emphasis.

Serving type: on-tap
