4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2015 12oz bottle poured into tulip. Hazy orange liquid topped by a finger of ivory head that settles to a clingy ring. Streaks and dots of lacing are left behind. Aroma is pineapple, grapefruit, bread, citrus zest, a bit of honey and some alcohol. Taste follows the nose, with a beautiful sweetness up front that is abruptly replaced by a mellow lingering bitterness and some wafting booziness. On the full side of medium body, creamy but sadly not as sticky as I?d have liked, medium foamy carbonation, drying and boozy on the finish.

12oz bottle ordered by mistake at the Smokehouse in Dunedin, FL. Turned out to be a great mistake, wouldn’t have ordered this if I knew it was 10% abv but I did and I loved it. Very little alcohol taste or burn, instead it is full of hoppy goodness. Extremely drinkable.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Troubles’ place. Thanks Ariel. Clear gold. Orange, hyssop, some lime and earth aroma, green and bitter, hoppy, and jasmine tea notes in the mouth. Light to medium body, green tea finish. Doesn’t feel like 10%.

BIF project. Bottle into pint. Pours burnt orange with a thin white head. Aroma is complex... Citrus peel, pineapple rind, peach, pine, honey. Flavor isn’t as deep. Get done pine then orange blossom honey. Palate is a bit sticky. Great IPA.

Bottle at the 7th Tasting in Belgrade-Serbia, thank you luttonm for having brought this fresh from the US. Hurray for the USA! Pours hazy orange skin, off white medium creamy head. Nose: fresh citrus with predominant lemonade character, malty background, super fresh. Wow! Mouth: the frizzy carbonation surprisingly comes out in the aftertaste, sweet orange juice, dry start, it is incredible how the sweetness balances with the hops in this one. It develops in the mouth with a velvet body. Charing beer!

Been wanting to try this for a while now, so thanks a big bunch to my man Ryan for hookin’ me up.
Pour is clear light amber, with a small slightly frothy white head.
Aroma has a really strong back of malty goodness. This beer knows to do some dead lift. Pine, grass, slight citrus and pineapple as well. Really well balanced.
Taste is slightly sweet up front, and definitely has that honey to it, but is dominantly bitter from the middle and out. Quite thick bodied, compared to the style, with a fizzy carbonation. Really hides the 10% well.. Great stuff..
