Big ups to my main man andrenaline for sending this out in our latest cross country trade
A - slightly hazy caramel amber hue, finger of head retained at a consistent cover, fairly decent lacing all around
S - hops aromas of citrus and pepper, along with faint caramel and mint
T - gentle lemon zest an earthy hop notes, grainy and mild caramel malts, hints of spicy peppery hops through the finish
M - medium to light body, drys out through the middle with the spicy aspect more pronounced here, medium bitter through the finish but not too agressive
O - definitely pleased with this offering from the folks at Sleeping Giant, i've only had the pleasure of trying a few via trade & visit with andrenaline but I believe this is the best i've had from them thus far

Another edition of the Anomoly series...

A - Pours a hazy copper colour, thumb of tan head with decent retention and some sporadic lacing.

S - Sweet citrus, earthy pine and butter caramel on the finish. Fresh citrus rind and earthy pine round off the nose.

T - Much like the nose, solid citrus hops, the citrus rind comes through alongside a touch of grapefruit. Solid bitterness lingers alongside a solid caramel malt backbone.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and a nice dryness on the finish.

O - A pleasant addition to the line-up that boasts a solid flavour profile and enough fresh citrus hop notes to keep any hophead happy. I would definitely think this is worthy of being a year round offering.

Thanks to Andrew for the bottle.

Pours a hazed golden orange colour, 2 fingers of white head and lots of lace. Smell is of orangey citrus fruits, some grapefruit, fuzzy peaches some malty caramel and sugar cookie. Taste has a big citrus start, long lingering bitterness, grapefruit and orange, mid palate sweetness but drying into the finish with some more malt, hoppy aftertaste. Light-medium carbonation, oily points, medium body. A nice intro to Sleeping Giant, interested in trying more stuff from these guys as this shows lots of promise, would revist this again.
