The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma has some candy and resin hops, with some biscuit malt thrown in. The flavor is very similar. I get some bitter pine and resin from the hop notes, as well as some brown sugar and orange citrus notes. There is a good amount of malty sweetness, which is mixed with some strong hop flavor and a medium amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Thanks to jtd1969 for sharing this at our last brewing session.

A - dark orange with a thin white head that has decent retention

S - bread, citrus, fruity

T - citrusy, bready, a hint of lemon, grapefruit, pine, alcohol

M - warm, medium to full bodied, smooth, well carbonated

This is a decent, balanced beer with solid flavor. The alcohol is well masked and the hop character complements the bready malt character. This was a great share from Jim.

A - Pours a copper color with a white frothy head
S - Aroma is not strong, mostly i smell citrus
T - Bitter with hints of grapefruit
M - Medium mouth feel, not as sticky as some
O - Very good, I'd rate this just below the great DIPA's. Well balanced and seems very drinkable but that ABV will get ya.
