Almost didn’t buy this. It was sitting next to six-packs of Shock Top, so I thought it was an InBev/AB product. Looked almost too much like ABs gluten-free beer packaging. However, it had Portland slathered liberally about it and I was willing to take my chances at $8.99. I woulda been p*ssed had it turned out to be a bad AB brew.
Anyhow, to the review...From a 12 oz. bottle from a local liquor/grocery not known for a lot of quality nor depth of selection. Poured into a Belgian snifter. Cloudy orange pour with a generous fluffy white head. Aroma a nice balance between hops and malt sweetness - even given my stuffy nose. The taste is balanced as well, especially for the style. The aroma foretold the taste. The alcohol is restrained enough to let the hop/malt balance shine through. This is a big beer, not a huge totally outta proportion beer. There is a nice bitterness that lingers. Nice lace down the glass and a tongue tingling carbonation. I would definitely buy this beer again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy deep gold, almost an orange-like hue, with a creamy foamy top. Big earthy and grassy hop bitterness on the aroma with a little bitter orange peel as well. Earthy and grassy leafy flavor with some earthy citric pithy bitterness, but then all the sudden there’s this orange/grapefruit sweetness and a pale malty backbone.

Bottle shared with a co-worker. Poured a clear orange color, though sediment really picked up on this one pretty quickly. Aroma was maltier than I would have expected, but a nice citrus character really comes through on it. Lots of floral hop leaf notes. Light chewy character. Grapefruit zest is nice. This had been in the co-worker’s fridge for almost a year and was still pretty solid - would like to try it fresh.

Pours a deep dark orangish amber color. Aromas of big hop action, sweet malts, and more hops. Flavor has some caramel malty tastes with nice grapefruit and floral hop taste.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a light copper, particulate matter and turbid. Nose of orange and a hint of pine. Taste is somewhat of an acrid bitter that coats the tongue with slime. Not the best.

@ Bridgeport brewpub 16-3-10: en imperial ipa som saknar det mesta. Lite sötaktig malt och klorat vatten.

On tap at the Brewpub. Hazy orange with a white head. Hoppy with grass, malt and some grapefruit. Also warming alcohol. The finish was really bitter.

Medium orange with a tall pillowy head. Heavy malts over this bitter orange and citrus hopped DIPA. Some light floral notes. A bit sweet, fruity, and bitter. A slightly off-putting finish, however, makes this not one I’ll be coming back to very often. Still, decent enough.

Bottled. Cloudy copper. Has a upfront hop taste. Grassy piney hops. After a couple drinks a orangy flavor pops out but mostly the grassy hops. Decent
