arminjewell (9207) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy golden-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange, caramel, toffee, hints of grass into a bit of earth, pretty sweet smelling. Taste is a mix of orange, grapefruit, hints of grass into a bit of caramel, toffee, slight spice, finishing bitter. Just ok.

BVery (9178) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Tap. Mostly clear reddish amber pour with a frothy white head. Juicy and pine hop. Pretty well balanced and flavorful. Nice brew.

slowrunner77 (9010) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 4, 2015
not a bad price for the style but still more than a normal 6-pack beer without being any better. Crisp hoppy aroma but also a little biscuit, which I don’t like. I’d say above average beer, below average IIPA.

3fourths (8962) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Pine sap and grapefruit and orange jelly hop-forward nose with a rye / seed / spice character. Full body, rich mouthfeel, C-note resin and bitterness. Sweet and bitter and a little savory. Green leaf / spinach finish. Amber body. From bottle.

3.2
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
DuffMan (8823) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle. Deep orange, dense white head. Aroma has some citrus pith and grass. The hops are quite astringent on the palate, citrus rind but with a slight medicinal quality. Malts are sweet. Finishes with aspirin bitterness. Disappointing.

3.6
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
KyotoLefty (8754) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 20, 2016
Bomber. Malty nose, pine, oranges, caramel. Glowing orange-amber color with a low, fine head. Sweet, slightly boozy flavor of oranges, biscuits, pine, something like orange sorbet. Nice fruitiness.

marcus (8615) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 2, 2013
On tap at Capital Beerfest. Pours cloudy golden with a nice beige head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with a tasty hop profile.

bb (7987) - Alamo, California, USA - APR 16, 2013
Draft. Amber beer with a cream head. Grapefruit and light summer fruit aroma. Earth and summer fruit flavor with light grapefruit. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Summer fruit and earth linger with light grapefruit and light pine.

douglas88 (7964) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 12, 2014
On tap at Belmont. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A light fruity nose, oranges. The flavor is medium resin, low to medium bitterness, oranges, spices, toffee. Good, smooth. Pretty easygoing.

3.4
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
Ibrew2or3 (7935) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Pours up at AZ Strong Ale Fest 2014 with a crystal clear copper body that has thick pervasive golden hues and supports a nice looking light tan head. The aroma offers sweet dark fruity esters as well as malt sweetened citrus to slightly mango fruitiness. The taste begins with cherry to blueberry to brown sugar covered raisin like fruity esters that seem pretty far out of place. Behind the esters I get malt sweetened mango and clementine like hop flavor notes and really no hop bitterness at all. Overall this is just too sweet and estery with no bitterness at all.
