On tap at Global Brew. Pours a cloudy orange with a thick antique lace head. Mild citrus aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt, smooth mild citrus and a minimal bitterness that tops it off. Well balanced; very tasty.

bunker (7) - Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2014 does not count
boring, felt a bit ripped off paying 14 dollars for a growler full. If you like IPAs dont waste youre time, there are plenty of better ones

Draft. Copper pour, white head. Little retention/some lace. Aroma of toffee, citrus, floral hop. Taste is moderately bitter, toffee, floral hop. Palate is average carbonation, oily, bitter finish.

tectactoe (1167) - Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Tap: clear copper body with some light ruby tints, topped with some beige foam that settles as a thin skin & leaves nice webbing at the top of the glass. Aroma is full of some wet pine-y hops, light earthy spice, mild caramel malt sweetness, & a hint of citrus rind. Taste has some floral hops, grapefruit, mild pine & oil, a big toasted backdrop with some lighter caramel malt notes, & a good dose of spicy orange zest. Possibly some white pepper-y notes, too. Nice hoppy beer from Bells, but it doesn't hold a candle to their best.

bwa5879 (537) - Portage, Michigan, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Oily/cloudy amber pour with minimal white head. Light scent of citrus hops. Above average carbonation, crisp finish. Taste leans bitter with crisp scotchy/ piney hops and some florals too with a biscuity malt backbone. Very crisp and bitter but not too heavy, easy deinking specialty beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml bottle. Pours a clear dark amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma has citrus and melon fruit, sweet malts, pale bready malts with a hint of herbal character. The flavor has much of the same; citrus and melon fruits, light bready malt, sweeter malts light herbal with a mild to moderate bitterness to the finish. I had this on my wants list for years before they finally bottled it. I was slightly disappointed; still good, but the wait set expectations too high.
