Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a hazy amber color with a thin beige head that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing. The aroma is moderately hoppy with a solid earthy malt undertone. Medium-bodied and round with subtle hops, fruit and malt flavors. The finish is balanced between piney hops and malt. Overall this is a somewhat toned-down take on the original, despite what the name implies. I was not very impressed.

Pours clear copper with a short head and nice lacing. Sharp, citrus hop aroma with earthy malt. Great bitter taste. Resin flavor without the stickiness, but with more caramel malt than expected. The malt seems to temper its herbal bitterness without getting sweet. Good beer.
