Strange beer for me. Smell is very bready like a lager. Don't get any hop aromas. Reminds me of a PBR. Taste is also similar to a lager like a PBR. Plenty of bitterness. In fact, all bitter, but no hop flavor. This tastes like a really bitter PBR.

Bottled 11/2013.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with earth and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a high amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer with lots of earthy and very bitter hop flavors that I don't care for too much.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a pretty orange/bronze color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some light malts. Taste is piney hops, minty, some malts, flavors seem to be just not meshing well. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.
