3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at CBC Denver, April 10 2014.
Heard from one of the brewers that this is making its way to Sweden, might have to pick one up, I rather enjoyed this one.
Hazy golden color, off-white head. Orange, hoppy, sweet scent. Sweet, spicy, bitter, herbal taste. Fizzy mouthfeel, medium high bitterness.

Bottle@home. Pours gold with a small white head. Big orange on the nose with some caramel and general citrus fruits. Burnt orange marmalade taste, quite a fizzer on the palate.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Overwhelming murky. Orange-peel color with clean-white small head. Good lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, some peripheral tangerine. A little musky, earthy. Decent but where’s the blood orange?
Lacking refinement. Taste is muddled and dare I say it...a little generic. Pithy grapefruit bitterness is nice and lasting; a saving grace of sorts. There’s a menthol/chemical infiltrator in the taste that’s slightly unpleasant.
I had juicy expectations. Unfortunately it was a ’dank’ squib. Great idea, great aesthetics; lacking in substance.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from The Beerhive. Ugly pale brown body with an off-white head. Faint carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of passionfruit and orange sherbert. Flavour of tangy blood orange and pumpkin. Medium body with an oily texture. Weak fizz. I’m a bit disappointed with this. It’s not the juicy IPA I was hoping for.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at CBC 100. Pours a gold coir with a white head. Aroma has cat piss, and some perfume. Medium body, mild carbonation. A little sticky. There's marmalade, light caramel, a little earthiness, bitter citrus rind... It's tasty.
