12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer and left some nice lacing on the glass. It is a deep copper and amber color with good clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Caramel and bready malts with some citrus and piney aromas in the rear. The scent is a bit on the light side and would be a lot better if it were more fragrant.

Taste: Same as above. Hops are nice with some lingering bitterness in the end.

Mouthfeel: Creamy and silky smooth, medium carbonation, and medium bodied.

Overall: Pretty nice amber/red. The taste could be cleaner and the aroma more noticeable, but I'm happy with this one.

12oz bottle into Duvel tulip. Packaged 2/17/12. Thanks to BA morningthief for picking me up this beer.

Appearance: Free pour yields a three inch, frothy and bubbly, bone-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a few rings of lacing. Pours a semi-translucent dark, brownish red, and leaves occasional lacing islands.

Smell: Citrusy hops, with a sweet mango note. Interesting dark malt background aromas that are difficult to describe further, but good.

Taste: Bready malt up front, with subdued citrus and mango hop flavor in the background. High bitterness relative to the rest of the flavor (gives a refreshing impression, at least for me). White bread aftertaste.

Good malt flavors, decent hop flavor. Well put together beer. Nothing flashy, but nothing to complain about either.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, a bit watery sometimes. Good carbonation (high side of moderate). Crisp, semi-dry finish.

Overall: Solid beer. Ideally would be consumed on tap, in abundance, with good company and/or over a good meal.
