GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 25, 2008
22oz bottle. Poured a clear medium orange color. Head was bubbly, off white, and reduced over a minute or so to a soapy film. Aroma was of caramel, raw sprucy hops, and alcohol. There was some sweetness initially, but it was ruthlessly suppressed by moderate to assertive hop bitterness of about 7 out of 10 that lingered beyond the finish. I tasted caramel, orange liqueur, and sprucy hops. And the bitterness keeps on keepin’ on. Pretty good stuff.

Flot cremet skum på en orangeagtig øl. Duften er overvældenen, smagen lige så! Eftersmagen er de først par slurke meget bitter, efterhånden virker øllet mere og mere rund og lækkert i munden.

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Bottle. Cloud gold body with a white head. The aroma was grapefruit up front. Lots of citrus was backed up with some wood, yet this still smelled sweet. The taste was rich bread crust with some peanut butter. There was also some peach pit. Pretty good.

Big bright cloudy orange (nice bold vibrant color) with a huge frothy great head - big and thick and beautiful. Smell is nice and bold and fruity oranges and grapefruit. Flavor is creamy and hoppy but not very bitter. It is really smooth and really creamy. Alcohol is present but it is a very sweet alcohol that works here. Sweet and hoppy orange finish that is really nice and clean. Overall, very enjoyable.

brewandbbq (269) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 2, 2008
Pours clear copper with a half inch white head. The dense foam recedes within two minutes and reveals a partial skim coat on the surface and some decent lacework. Aromatics are pungent, piney, and citrusy. Notes of wet hay and juniper add some earthy zest, along with spruce sap and grapefruit pith. Alcohol is evident with a trace of fusels intermingeling with spiked orange skins and grapeskins. Mouthfeel is dry, crisp, and mildly stinging from assertive bitterness. The pallet is juicy and piney, heavy on the pink grapefruit and orange pith. Conifer sap from the bough, with alcohol steeped dried fruits. Bitterness is substantial and borderline astringent, lingering as lengthy as the warming alcohol. Finishes almost hot, with jowel-watering bitterness and tongue-gripping alphas. A great beer, but I think a fresher example would boost the numbers.
