12oz bottle bottle

A- Pours a dark brown color with hints of dark red with a tan head with good retention and lacing.

S- The aroma is malt, caramel and a lot of fresh hops. This is similar to an IPA but it has darker fruitier malts.

T- The taste has a malt presence up front that lasts a split second before the hops kick in and create a long lingering finish. I can pick up hints of coffee flavors in the taste as well. The finish also has a considerable warmth from the alcohol.

M- The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation.

O- Overall, this was an enjoyable beer. Recommended!

Review from 1/2011 notes. Poured into a Nostradamus flute glass. Pours a very dark red amber. Faint head, but a bit of lacing. Hops and citrus aroma. Nice spicy hops up front, with some citrus and light malts. Pleasant resiny, hoppy bitter finish. Quite a few flavor changes throughout the taste. A fairly complex, interesting hop forward ale. Apparently a renamed Yakima Twilight.

Pouring from a cellar temp bottle into a snifter. The beer pours a deep mahogany hue with a creamy beige head of 3 cm foaming up on a gentle pour. Aroma is some pine sap and grassy hops with just a hint of caramel.
First sip reveals a silky smooth texture and very minimal yet slightly tingly carbonation.
Flavor is a bit of sweet malt and caramel rolls to some pine tree and grass. Finishes very dry with a the slightly astringent bite and also a bit of peppery booze. A nice sipping beer without a lot of complexity. The smooth texture and fairly well hidden booze make it easy to drink.

Poured into hoegaarden mug/glass

Pours a dark amberish brown color, with a nice head and nice head retention as I drink. Smells of hoppy scent with sort of some chocolate, maybe oatmeal type malt. Very different than most beers I have had. Taste different. Mostly hops on the back end, and some up front as well. Can't really describe the malt flavor very well. Can taste a bit of alcohol at the tail end as well. Medium, to heavy body. Low carbonation.
Overall this is a decent beer, nothing I would go out of my way to get though.

A- dark red almost blood color to the beer like a vampire. seems to be very carbonated but we will see with taste.

S- smells pretty florally, with a fruity smell after the floral hop smell. the fruity smell comes along with strong smell that it seems like a combination of fruits to distinguish a specific one from smell

T- Very floral with a semi hop us front taste, and serious floral end. Not much fruitful taste to the beer but non the less a very tasteful feeling throughout. As being a person of not liking hop beers what so ever I am very pleased with this one.

MF- not very carbonated, but if it were more carbonated it would not be as good i feel. Has a medium feel to it but full filling through and through.

O- This beer has not been on my top list of beers as far as hops, I am not a person to buy or consume a more hoppy floral beer, I like the more malt floral beer. But all in all it is a beer that i could enjoy again on a summer day.
