COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Only 120 precious barrels were brewed, adding more than half a ton of extra malt and twice the amount of Amarillo hops, so prepare your self for a full sensory explosion. The double dry-hop addition elevates the grapefruit-like aroma and flavor to an outrageous intensity, while the added malt raises the alcohol level from 7% all the way to 10% by volume.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 27, 2007
22 oz. bottle, shared with a green eyed lady. Perfumey, citric, toasty malt nose. Light honey orange amber hue. Pale malt presence, sweet enough to balance the bitterness...Alcohol is pretty much well hidden, would never have said 10 hey...Medium-full body, although seeming thin at some points. Grapefruit, conifer resin, herbal hops, through a long lingering finish. Something is lacking in this beer, i just can’t put my finger on it...It was strong enough, though, to get me to make an ass of myself in front my my friends...at least after it was followed by several irish car bmbs. take off yer skirt...

Heavy malt character. Reminds me of a watered down Gubna. It’s a good beer, but not the best of the style.

RRistow12 (709) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAY 17, 2016
Tasted from bottle. Pours a nice hazy orange amber. Aroma is caramel and some citrus notes. Taste is moderately sweet with a mild to moderate bitter finish. A little malt dominant. Flavors of caramel, toffee, grapefruit, orange. Hides the 10% ABV well. Overall pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2016
Pours a nice dark reddish amber color. Aromas of HOPS, and some other hints, maybe fruit, maybe caramel. Flavor is a bittersweet, malty, and hoppy with a nice dry finish.

rondphoto (4059) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 7, 2016
on tap @ Hebron Brew Haus / Hebron KY --- Nearly clear medium amber, white head that drops to a thin cover, curtain of lace. Taste is full caramel malt that grows into a medium carbonated swallow, then on to an assertive hop blast, only to see an encore by the malt. Complex and well-balanced. Recommended.

Aggie80 (808) - Michigan, USA - JAN 22, 2016
Very foamy pour with large head and strong lacing. Also had sheets of sediment from the bottle, really a downer for the appearance. Cloudy orange pour, strong alcohol content, but no burn. Leaves quite a hoppy and long lasting after taste partially from the sediment.

AWISLguy (2535) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 23, 2015
Bottle from Breeze Thru, cannot believe never have rated. Fly in the ointment is a September 7th, bottle date. A copper orange pour with a foamy white head leaving nice spotty lacing all around the glass. Aroma has over layered hops, pine, citrus, lemon. Smells dry hopped and dry hopped. Taste is of citrus, grapefruit, pine with some chewy resin, and some toffee back. Medium bodied and almost syrupy with a bit of an alcohol presence. Finishes to the bitter side of bittersweet and over layered. Solid effort, and still hoppy. Did not love the flavor combination, but decent. 13.9

Aroma is spices, pine and a hint of hops. The flavor is grapefruit, malts, hops and a very spicy finish.

Nate (4186) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2015
On tap at Twisted Jimmys. Nice hoppy aroma, mellow on nitro with a little sulfur. Medium golden amber clear with creamy off-white lacing head. Medium body with nitro. Moderately sweet to start, juicy, sugar, caramel with light bitterness. Muted hop flavors with bigger bitter finish and after.

acearl (496) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Orange brown pour with thick cream head, smells grapefruit, some pine and sweet malt, thicker medium texture, sweet, tiny carbonation with lingering bitterness, 10% is noticeable, a little too sweet for my taste
