I saved the first 8 Alley Kat Dragon Series to taste them all together. I don't know if the series is done, but I can't wait longer as the first few are getting old. So here goes... Bottle to pils glass Aroma of orange, pomelo, pineapple and papaya. Clear amber with a thin white head. Taste of orange and grapefruit with a bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

My favorite of the dragon series so far. gold colour with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, pine and hops. Sweet citrus and malt flavor.

Dragon night! Pours a slightly hazy amber with a huge dull white head that leaves lace all over the glass and outlasts the beer. Aroma is fruity, orange, floral and some perfume like notes. Taste is grapefruit, floral, mid-high bitterness, with a good malty back bone to give some balance.

Bottle from the brewery. Not bad, but not great. This was a bottle they were holding on to from the release, so itís not the freshest and some of the hopping had faded, but overall it had a nice clean orange body with some good fruity hop notes rising out of the glass. The fading of the hops left it a tad more bitter than flavourful, but not so much that it ruined it. Would like to try it fresh on tap, I think that would help bring some of those tasty hops to life.

Bottle - What do you know, I smell orange. Is that coincidence or subliminal messaging from the title. Grassy, flowery and orange. Clear copper and a nice thick head. Orange carries through, with some grapefruit and bitterness. A pedestrian IIPA.

its late, im mostly incoherent adn my feet and nipples are cold.thai food and perogies covered in onion powder to go along with massive massive beers hasve led me to this moment in my life. another AK dragon beer. Let us begin the disappointemtn pf the beer and my pathetic spelling. Iím not even sure if Iím blinking any more. Best labels AK has ever done. Too bad the beers cannot follow. Sweet sugar bomb, some welcoming fragrancew, honey, there is more but im mostly aslepp. more detail isnt going to make a differnce anyway. this is bery easy to drink but i forsee a head ache after the 8 or 9L mark. sweet with lemon and honey and mild bitterness that lingers in a stronger form than before, lime, caramel, not bad. Thankfully I have an endless stream of Suicidal Tendencies blasting my senses at 4:24am

Thanks to Reimer for this. Aroma is small floral hop and sweet malts. Taste is a nice floral hop bitterness and balanced nicely with a slight biscuit malt sweetness.

Pours a clear orange copper color with a white head that has nice retention. Little bit of lace is left around the glass. Smells sweet and piney and tastes very malty up front with a nice punch of hops that will stick around for a while

Orange hops, bold aloma and taste, is it Summit? Orange body and very lacey. A big IBU and big bitterness. Medium mouthfeel, hops backed by malt liquor flavour.Dry finish. Some palate erasing. Bottle from Presario.

Pours orange with a bit of white head. Smell is hoppy citrus, a bit of tangerine. Palate is on the lighter side of medium bodied. Taste is bitter at first, the gets a slight sweetness but reverts back to a hoppy bitter aftertaste. Good, but not great.
