Great bif hopy flavor and aroma. The combo of columbus and cascade hops really take this one to another level.

Glass at Disney's California Adventure park. Cloudy orange-amber pour. Citrus and hoppy aroma. A balanced citrus and hoppy flavor. Finishes with a light bitter. Medium carbonation. Very good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours orangish gold with incredible clarity. Aroma is very fruity. Lots of orange and grapefruit. Taste is citrusy and astrigent, with a wallop of spiciness at the end that lingers.

"very good hoppy, aromatic beer. i liked everything from the floral nose, to the just right body and hopping level, to the hoppy, bitter finish. just enough malt to give it a nice backbone."

330ml bottle poured in a pint glass. A: Pours a clear orange golden color forming a medium, creamy and thin bubbled beige head. Good retention forming lots of thin and pointy lingering lacings in the glass S: Sweet pale grains. Very fruity. Strong notes of sweet pale grains, piny hops, grapefruit. Citrus orange zest, pine and flowery hops T: Follows the nose: Strong notes of flowey hops, orange zest M: Light body, medium carbonation and nice bitter and grassy aftertaste D: High. To be drunk in gallons (preferentially, sitting in a pub around the San Francisco bay area :p) [ BA Review @ 12/14/2010 ]

Sharp lemony pine aroma. Nice sudsy head with average lacing. The expected hop bitterness up front with a slight hint of honey sweetness on the finish. Very good.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours orangish with a white head. Taste grapefruit, citrus, spices. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
