DATE: June 6, 2015... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... OCCASION: Catching up with Game of Thrones... APPEARANCE: Translucent copper/amber body and a white, cloudlike trail of lacing; almost no effervescence...AROMA: pleasant maltiness and a spike of flowery hops--some citrus and orange as well; mellow and appealing... PALATE: medium-bodied and smooth, with little life but reasonably creamy finish... TASTE: caramel malts take center stage, owning a throaty, metallic dominance; buttery, nutty qualities surface late; some hop crunch balances the experience; a good balance is struck... OVERALL: with grapefruit, a slightly nuanced approach to an amber, with a demonstrative 7% ABV to boot....worthy of a pairing with a night with the epic power of Westeros...

Poured a dark amber color. The smell was of pine, grass, grapefruit, citrusy hops. The taste was very hoppy and on the stingy side. Clocks in at 7% ABV but the alcohol is blended well with the malts and spicy hops. Good beer overall, not my favorite by FLYING FISH, but a solid beer.

Solid beer all the way around. Dark copper color, some citrus, spices, and a tiny bit bready. Nice dry tart aftertaste with some hops and malt. Very drinkable.
