Tap. Clear amber. Very strong diacetyl aroma. Flavor was sweet with caramel and buttery diacetyl. Hops were slightly light and overshadowed for style. I still enjoyed it for the most part.

Ferris (2006) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2014
Draft - Sweet pine, grapefruit and tropical fruit. Clear gold with a rich white head. Piney, resin and a well balanced sweetness expected. There is a rich mouthfeel and a light resin finish. Awesome.

Senap (272) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2014
65 cl flaska från SB. En dipa med ordentligt tryck, som sig bör. Inte fullt så fruktig som många i klassen. Alkoholen slår igenom något. Bra, men inget toppbetyg.

Well hopped and a definite alcohol bite with 10.0 ABV. Served in a 10 oz schooner. I liked it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

EithCubes (4625) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Bomber. Nose is resplendent grapefruit with an amazing charred toast/dough element, just suuuper bready with some interesting woody and pine/spice notes. Pours transparent orange with a beige head. Taste isn’t very bitter, and probably a little sweeter than average, with very little resin and a very large amount of oil. Very fruity, orange and grapefruit peels, apricot, maybe peach, some perfumed elegance, a hint of sugary alcohols but not a terribly big one. Citrus is very bright. Malt is weak, thin body is weak but at least helps accentuate the otherwise failing hops. Some nice pine and floral notes remind of Centennial, but this really is a perfume bomb, and the appetizing starters of yeast and bread are long gone from the mouth. A tale of two beers, really, and just not my bag anymore.

NikkTwist (1387) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Draft at Moriartys. Clear apricot gold pour with a pillowy white head. Aroma of a strong citrus floral IPA but the first sip brings in unexpected malty chocolate caramel flavors. Crisp clean tangerine peels. Vanilla Tootsie Rolls. Butterscotch. Sugar syrup with bitters. Lots of citrus pith. Extraordinary.

DarkMagus (472) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 15, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pours a bright amber orange color with a thin white head. Strong grapefruit/citrus aroma with a bit of malty sweetness. Predominantly bitter citrusy hops with a sweet malty backbone. Pretty straightforward. Nice syrupy sticky mouthfeel and a clean astringent finish. Good stuff.

VT (1298) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a flaky and cloudy pale golden with a short lived white head. Aroma is lots of lemon, grapefruit and various other citrus. Flavor is very fruity, pale malt. Finish is very hoppy, resinous, solid bitterness. Though, the boozey taste that came slipping in was a bit annoying. Medium body, average carbonation.

Dragonfly1 (460) - Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2013
One of my go-to’s and favorites. Perfect combination of sweet, malty, hoppy, bitterness, citrus, and pine. This looks like a west coast sunset, a rich orange with a white fluffy head. Aroma is sweet orange, fresh flowers, and a touch of cinnamon. Body is softly carbonated, great mouthfeel. Flavor is more orange peel, rosehip, and ever so slight pine needle. The complexity of this is amazing.
