TheEpeeist (3384) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2007
22 oz bottle. Cloudy creamy orange with a cratered, pale yellow head. Fresh orange juice with light toffee. Delightful aroma. Smooth grapefruit candy, a touch of orange with some quinine toward the end. Soft, medium body with building carb feel. Nice double that doesn’t overpower.

HopHeadinAZ (180) - Arizona, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Bomber bottle: Pours a copper color with a large bubble filled one finger head that quickly disappeared. Good aroma of piney, sweet citrus. Some lacing is present as the glass goes down. More resinous than I would like. Pretty solid balance of malt and hops with a lingering finish. A solid beer that grows on you with each sip.

thebaldwizard (1205) - Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Bottle from Saarlander. Definite "C" hop aroma is very nice. Golden brown body with a decent head. Full palate. Awesome malt presence up front and great hop balance. Solidly bitter with a caramel malt finish.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAY 1, 2007
Pours a thick, slighty hazed honey color w/ a full, semi creamy froth. Superb head retention leaving full, sticky, clumpy lacing behind. Aroma of strict hops and fat sweet malts. Full nectar w/ mellow creamy effers. It’s almost still. A malt bomb w/ big citrus rind that tries to balance it all out but fails. Thick and chewy leathered malts, fat caramel, grapefruit. The finish is bittered extensively and has a lingering mild citrus sweetness. Not real complex but very tasty indeed. Highly reommended.

SpringsLicker (3164) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 1, 2007
Pours with a big creamy off white head that puts out a flowery fruity hop aroma. The flavor is sweet, bordering on sticky, with a good supportive bitterness from the hops that lingers long into the finish. I really like this one.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - APR 30, 2007
On tap at Stuffed Sandwich. Transparent, clover honey colored pour with a thin layer of fizzy white head. Big fruity, floral, sticky citrus hop bouquet with some pleasant notes of juicy canteloupe, ruby red grapefruit, and freshly squeezed naval oranges. Medium bodied, crisply carbonated mouthfeel. Some nice, softly sweet caramel malts create a nice flavor balance for a boatload of orange citrus hops. Lots of cleanly herbal hop flavors with a satisfyingly bitter spruce and white grapefruit finish. Dry, but could be even drier. Very enjoyable overall.
