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 (462) - 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.

Tap at Oasis Micropub. Slightly hazy, murky, orange-tan. Frothy, steady head. Massive IIPA, quite unique. Doesn’t blow you away, sort of straightforward. Syrupy amarillo..which is kind of odd. West Coast all the way, but sort of imperfect. Still good and above par. Resiny sweetness. Solid offering, a little different.

Looks pretty in the glass. Pine and caramel and alcohol in the nose. Aggressive hops and alcohol blend with smooth caramel to make a pleasant sip. Touch hot with alcohol. Good beer.

pours golden orange with a small but dense white head.. marginal lacing. aroma is mostly grapefruit rind with some pine, floral and almost a Mexican chocolate hint at that back end. flavor is muted grapefruit and a bit "alcoholy". Maybe I was just expecting more. Will re-rate later.

Bottle at the Syb Pig share. Snifter. Orange hazy pour with medium white head. Nice aroma of strong hops...pine, citrus, floral notes mixed with a heavy caramel maltiness. The taste was rather flat due to an old bottle. Hops had lost their presence however the flavors were still good. Medium body and carb. Finish was mostly malty and slightly bitter.

Bärnstensfärgad med stort ljust skum! Massor med tropisk humle men även malt i doften! Humlig och lite malt i smaken och bra balans och kolsyra! Mycket bra bra öl!

czar (3805) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2013
pours hazy pale orange with a small off-white head, some retetion and lacing. resin, citrus, pine, spicy lightly toasted malts, silky caramel, oranges and otehr fruits, hint of cacao (!). some sweetness - a tad too much. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily and a bit sticky, bold if not harsh grassy-citrusy-spicy finish. tad unbalanced, sort of sweet and bland. blah. disappointing.
