3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from the bottle. Aroma is a nice mix of malt and hop bitterness. Get some citrus fruits, but nothing stands out. Color is a nice orange with sizable white head. Flavor has a strong malt flavor, with minor hop bitterness. The bitterness does linger a bit on the tongue. Would prefer more hop flavor up front.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned at Kudu. Glowing deep orange pour with a thick white head. Big tropical citrus hops on the nose, apricots and peaches with bready malt backing. Flavor is similar with that sticky hop character finishing it. Not too shabby.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma is a faint, but present, orange creamsicle note with a syrupy caramel and a bit of grass. It pours a foggy orange copper color with a big, dense, off-white, rocky head. Good retention as a puffy surface coating is left behind as well as an abundant, messy and puffy lacing along the glass. The taste lies on the higher end of medium for both bitterness and sweetness - the bitterness stands out a bit more. Lots of fuzzy carbonation greet the palate with a slick texture and a full, resin, grass, and grapefruit body. Some of the orange creamsicle comes back in the finish with grapefruit membrane, grass, and some caramel malt. The dry, grassy and resin aftertaste lingers.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazy dark amber with a nice pale tan head. Hoppy aroma has a firm underpinning of sour orange. Flavor has a bold hoppy core that supports hay and citrus notes, and is only slightly bitter. Texture is firm, fizzy and lively. Go ahead, take a chance with it!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy and familiar orange amber color with a nice off-white head that laces well and settles to a rich coating. Aroma is a nice sweet and resiny floral caramel fruit berry citrus. Taste is smooth with orange and grapefruit citrus upfront, followed by a dry hop bitterness on the back. It's the bitterness that hangs with you in the aftertaste. This is a straight up solid and sessionable AIPA.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy orange. In fact, thereís some actual solids floating around the beer. Thatís a bit off-putting unless itís a friendís batch. Smells grassy with a yeasty overtone. Taste is grapefruit, lemon, grass clippings, and pine, with the latter dominating the finish. Slight bitterness which lingers on the tongue. Intriguing beer that is let down by the appearance.
