I got this in a growler fill and took it home for Christmas. This beer is a grapefruit bomb. It pours an amber color with a finger of honey foam. The beer is extremely well filtered. There is no cloudiness whatsoever. The aroma and flavor are both filled with grapefruit. There is also some very nice hop bitterness. This one really surprised me, much better than I anticipated.

glennmastrange (2464) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Bottle. Moderate roasted grain for the malt, light to moderate cooked orange for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with notes of toffee, maple syrup and dried fruit. Head is small, fizzy, off-white with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is hazy medium amber/orange. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is medium, oily, with a lively carbonation and a lightly astringent finish. A drinkable beer but IPA-ish enough for me

Aggiebob (397) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Bottle: It poured an orange amber color with a small white head. The aroma was pine and citrus with the flavors being the same with the addition of bread dough and caramel malt. The bitterness was medium but not long lasting in the finish.

Can. Amber in the glass with a creamy off-white head that settled to a ring and left good lace. Pine and floral hop aroma. The flavor followed the same with a caramel backing also. Light to medium body, and medium bitterness throughout.

DarkSong (335) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - MAR 16, 2015
12 oz bottle. It pours a dark golden or very light amber color with a massive white, long lasting head. It has the aroma of citrus and tropical fruit. It has a nice fruity flavor along with a nice and not overpowering bitterness. I also taste a floral flavor. This beer is pretty good. Iím glad I purchased it. Iím not sure I would highly recommend it, but I enjoyed it.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of floral and bitter hops, some pale and caramel malts, and dough and tin. Flavor the same. Average texture. Needs a lighter malt bill, and take all of those cool hops that you burnt during the boil and use them for dry hopping. Donít waste citra and amarillo hops like that.

Very cloudy Orange pour from bomber in Orange beach. Has the rotten fruit taste I don't like. Doesn't hide the booze well - tastes very strong for 7.5. Grapefruit and tropical notes. Fruity. Something about it I don't like but I know it isn't a bad beer
