4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Gate. Golden orange with white ring head. (They overfill their glasses there.) Beautiful floral citrus tangerine aroma that I could smell from two feet away. Nice mild tangerine fruity sweetness. Slightly bready with a nice clean medium bitter citrus fresh hop finish. Very well balanced and easy drinking for abv. Excellent.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Hop Devil Grill - Amber, creamy white head. Rich nose of butterscotch pudding, tangerine, and florals. Well bittered flavor throughout with more of the same from above. Additional tones of earth, pine, caramel and toffee play out upon further warming. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry bitter finish. Great stuff in my book. They should consider bottling this as a seasonal....

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I looked at the overall RB scores before picking up a 4-pack of this, but unfortunately I cannot agree with them after tasting it. The flavors were way too sweet. I felt like I was drinking a glass of sweet red wine. The hops lent a sour taste to the beer as well. I also tasted a bit too much alcohol flavor in the finish and aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice!!!! Heavy hoppy aroma with a burgeoning smack of resin and big floral fruity notes. The pour is a mild orange hue with a finger of foamy white head. Sweet honey and caramel malts with a hint of malt character up front. Then full on hops and resinous hops with boozy warmth on the finish. Overall a big hopped up brew.

Growler poured a golden in color with a ring of off white head on the glass. Aroma has sweet citrus, resins, grapefruit, caramel malt, and some light heat. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation on the lower side. Flavor brings in some bitterness, citrus, resins, sweet malt, and some heat on the finish.

Flaska @ Grappa, Varberg. Klar orange öl med ett stort frostigt smutsvitt skum. Dofter av grapefrukt, citron, karamell och sura bär. Syrlig eftersmak där beskan lurar lite i bakgrunden. Friska smaker av citrus, gräs, persika, sur apelsin och örter. Medelstor kropp, något torr munkänsla. Riktigt bra.
