On tap. pour is a clear golden orange with a creamy white head. Nose is tight with light malt caramel and some nice grainy malt. Good hop profile, notes of citrus and strong herbal presence. Taste is balanced, dry finish, tight balance, grain and faint sweet caramel with citrus and herbal hops.

Thanks again to CheapBeerBuzz for this tasty treat.

A: pale golden color with a decent sized white head that dissipates quickly to give way to a wavy, partially-covering white foam on top.

S: hoppy but not overpowering. Bready smell along with some fruity hops.

T: apricot is huge along with pineapple and some bitterness and malt.

M: medium body, medium-heavy carbonation

O: great beer overall. Well put together, and a really interesting hop flavor. Once it warms a bit mroe it has more smell.

A - Somewhat murky copper, small white head, little cling.

S - First smell out of bottle was cat piss. It mellowed to light cat piss and malt.

T - Malt is up front, bittering takes a second seat but does a good job.

M - Medium body, good carb, good balance.

D - A little too pissy for my taste, but not a bad beer.

Bottle at O'Brien's

A: Pours a glowing orange color with a thin white head and some spots of lace.

S: A pretty nice bouquet of citrus hops, tropical fruit and a touch of bready malt. The smell of the hops is outstanding.

T: A great blend of citrus hops, grapefruit, orange, lemon and a touch of pine. A nice malt backbone with some notes of caramel and cracker hold the beer up nicely. Really good stuff.
