3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Khyber Pass. Looks orange against the red glass votives, but likely the brew is a hazy amber. Tulip. Slight foam up top. Light malty sweet up front. Complex hop bite in the finish. Caramel. Tangerine peels. Orange blossom. Sharp grapefruit pith. Dandelion. Persimmon. Kumquat. Peppercorn. Unexpected full body. Nicely blended, though thoughtfully unbalanced brew. A must for clever drinkers!

Very nice beer. Pours a light amber with a thin head, The aroma has a good bit of fruit and citrus. The flavor is sweet up front but gives way to a nice hop bite. Dry and refreshing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Pinocchio’s, Media. Very nice to see this on tap. Bullfrog’s no longer the "it" beer, since the hype machine has turned elsewhere, but their offerings are still super good. Luminous orange pour, with a sizable head. Bright and fresh looking. Nose is very dry, with bitter grapefruit and some peach in there too. Full, buoyant mouthfeel with just a touch of bitterness on the tongue. Taste is quite grassy and pungent, though the fruits are still in there quite pleasantly. Pretty damn good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Pinocchio’s. Light golden pour...smallish head. Aroma of tropical fruit. This one is citrus hops...not much else. Thin in the mouth. It was okay...but a bit disappointing.

On tap at Blue Dog in Chalfont, PA. Expected a pretty average IPA, but this was a tasty blend of hops with just enough bite going down. Pretty impressive brew.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours light hazy golden with an orange hue. Aroma brings some sweet and lightly juicy citrus lemon notes, so clean. Flavor brings a hop citrus bitter bite, so nice, that settles so well on the palate, definitely a smooth bite. Body is juicy and just a tad syrupy.
