Pours a clear amber to copper color, with a two finger bright white head, with very good retention and plenty of lacing. the aroma has grapefruit, pine, floral hops, and caramel malt.

The taste has a nice combination of bitterness and sweetness with grapefruit, pine, floral hops, caramel, bread, and toasted malts. Slightly herbal. there's a lot of flavor in this beer, and is very well made.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very smooth and easy to drink. Finishes dry. A very nice beer. I would buy this each winter, if it was sold in Minnesota.

Was lucky enough to pick up 2 six-packs of this in 2013, and it lives up to its hype.

A: Poured into a 12 oz Ommegang goblet. Dark amber with a thin white head on top. Very clear.

S: Orange and citrus with some subdued caramel in the background.

T: A nicely balanced beer. Just enough caramel and breadiness to balance out the aggressive hopping. Definitely too malty to fall into the IPA category, but enough citrus hop character for hop-heads to enjoy. Very little lingering bitterness.

M: Medium bodied beer with enough carbonation to give it a bit of brightness.

O: This is one stellar beer for the style. I tend to prefer drier beers, but this one's so well made it could make it into my regular rotation (if they'd release it more often).
