3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Somewhat of a dirty orangish golden with sediment floating about, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing. Pithy nose, a little dank and musty. Pith and orange peel on the tongue. Not bitter, not too sweet, very much middle of the road. Slight pixie stix like presense. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Not very bright on the tongue. Seems like a hefty Pale Ale, or perhaps a 3/4 IPA. Enjoyable, but lacks any ZING. Lingering citrus peel and pithiness on the tongue. Thanks for the bottle Jeff!

Hazy yellow/brown color, big creamy white head. Awesome retention. Aroma of citrus, herbs, malts. Taste is similar, very citrusy, not too bitter, maybe even too sweet. OK, but nothing special.

Hazy amber body with thick foam head. Pleasant hop aroma with pine scents most notable. Taste is similar with some citrus flavors, but mostly peppery pine. Nice biting bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can at Pivoteka. Murky orange body with a big, lasting white head. Fresh hoppy aroma, citrus, herbal, slightly malty, only a touch soapy, but otherwise fine. Lean, fresh, dry citric burst of hoppiness in the taste, good bitterness. Just the occasional yeasty/plastic note keeps it from a higher rating. Enjoyed it quite a bit, except when the yeast kicked in.

Âmbar levemente opaca, espuma branca de boa formação, média retenção. Aroma bastante floral, adocicado misto de caramelo/açúcar, levemente resinal. Paladar de amargor médio, leve dulçor. Corpo médio, carbonatação leve. Aftertaste balanceado e prazeroso, amargor intensificando com o tempo, seca, mais para resinal do que cítrico.

Canned 355ml. -from Pivoteka Zagreb. Hazy orange coloured, medium sized creamy off-white head, malt and alcohol in the nose. Sweet and almost sticky malty, fruity, caramel and alcohol with slight citrusy hoppy notes. Rather dry finish. Not so fresh I think.

We drank straight from the can at a party. Aromas of light malt some pine, a decent amount of citrus and some light caramel. Flavors were very citrus forward not over lowing just enough with some light bitterness in the aftertaste. Did not seem like 6.7% ABV. I was thinking it was a session IPA while drinking.

Jay drove a 6 of this from the Carolinas to my house. Yeah! Thanks Jay! In the can, leans towards an English style for me with some toffee notes along with standard IPA light citrus. Drinkable.

Rating beer, by it’s very nature, is subjective. I’ll be honest, you may love this- it has kind of a weird taste, and for some people, it’s going to be a eureka thing where it’s the taste they’re searching for, and for other people it’s going to taste really bad. I don’t like it. Tastes like an orange or a tangerine that has gone bad and has a really sour note- and not good sour like a sweet tart or a sour (style) beer or a sourpatch kid- a bad sour like there is something wrong with the beer. It’s in a can, so I can only imagine that this is it’s target taste- it’s unlikely to have been sunstruck or oxidized. I bought it in the state where it’s brewed. I just don’t like the taste they were going for here, I guess. This is way off the beaten trail in terms of an IPA taste profile. It probably has it’s fans, but it’s not for me.
