COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
We pushed our small brewery right to the limit to create this bad boy. We selected half a dozen of our favourite American hops, grown in the Yakima Valley, Washington State, and added bucket loads of each. With twice the hop rate of most of our other beers, it really is very hoppy indeed.

Keg. Frosted orange/gold beer with a thick cream head. Heavy citrus nose with mango and lots of orange fruits. Tangerine, clementine, kumquat. In the taste it's wow! There's more fruits as above and a ton of malt. There's a heavy malt backbone and alcohol tingle here tempering the ale. There's even a touch of biscuit in here. Fascinating beer! Yummmm!

One of my best ales. A cloudy orange ale with a heavy sweet taste with a medium bitter aftertaste that sticks on the tongue. Little or no carbonation. The hops in this ale kick in very quickly, when poured correctly a good strong head is left for the duration. Good served from the pump and from a live bottle. Although hard to source bottled in the UK due to Arbor’s insistence on selling it to the foreign market first.

skortila (4463) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle. 0.5ltr. Shared, sampled ~0.15ltr @ Rooie Dop brewdungeon. The aroma of this beer is wonderful fruity with apricots, peach and citrus. Very full and powerfull. Slightly hazy, copper coloured beer with a lasting, medium white head. The taste is initially little sweet and moderate bitter. The hop fruitiness kicks in immediately. Then the beer becomes quite bitter and more astringent to the end, without being too harsh. Really good brewski. Will buy again if I have the chance.

I like it. Very hoppy indeed and remarkably smooth with tastes of peach and citrus in the hops. Punchy and bitter too.

Lovely double ipa vibes, sherbet, mango, quite potent sweet and lightly bitter taste. Tasty. Jolly butcher.

maneliquor (3056) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 17, 2013
Tap at Euston Tap. Pours vibrant hazy orange with a small beige head leaving rings of lacing. Nose is full of tropical hops - mango, lychee, passionfruit, apricot. Very raw and pungent. Has that grapefruit sourness alluding to a bitter beer. Raw bitterness to go with an overload of tropical fruits and light grapefruit on the finish. Bitter through and through. I love it. Great beer

Aniela (2313) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle. Golden a bit hazy beer with a big lacy offwhite head. Hoppy and fruity aroma. Hoppy with some bitterness flavour.

On tap, pours a cloudy orange. Weak aroma but fresh, leaves and mint. Bitter upfront with a mildly sour middle. Complex. Strong. Good. Finish is a little rough ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had this and the moment i poured it I knew it wasn’t fresh, lots and lots of solid pieces of resin floating around, 2 month before bbd. I’m sure had I had it fresh it would have impressed me more, but there was just no oooomfff in this beer, slight citrus aroma and very very little bitterness.
