Bottle at home in CT - picked up in NYC. Pours mostly clear, yellow-gold with a thick, frothy white head. The nose has some dusty pine needles, citrus peel, dry pale malts, peach. Light sweet flavor with mellow bitter hay, pine needles, lemon rind, some dry pale bread, biscuits. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. A bit dusty on the finish with further citrus rind, biscuity pale malts, sawdust, faint grass, nectarine, citrus pith. So so. Might not be in top condition.

12 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse, opened 5/13/14.. Pours a hazy orange color with a large foamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of big citrus hops and pale malt. The taste is citrus hops, pale malts, a bit of a tropical vibe. Medium bodied, strong lingering bitterness, simple, well balanced.

daknole (10350) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Orange pour in a sample glass at Fate. This is an overly malty, somewhat off putting beer. Green coffee, not enough hops. Weird.

Dogbrick (10001) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Sample at Lucky’s in Dayton. Pours a clear dark golden color with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually. Short strings of lace on the glass. Aroma of hops and bready malt. Medium-bodied with a moderately bitter citrusy hops character with toasted malt behind it. The finish is floral with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

Sammy (9973) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2012
Bang on pale ale enjoyed at the Tap Room. Light golden colour, lacey,easy smooth mouthfeel. Citrus orange bitterness. Good drinkability. No astringency at well. This apparently will become their main pale ale. Above average bodied and medium hoppiness.

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Tap at Meridian Pint. Pours a full hazed orange. Creamy foam. Thick swabs of poofy lace. Nose is fresh orange juice and zesty pink grapefruit. Taste is sharp, spicy, oily, quite bitter. Feels heavier than APA. More IPA. Very nice.
