Bottle. 25.4 oz. Split with and courtesy of James. Pours a dank hazy caramel toffee brown. Head is perfect; half finger of beige cream. Brilliant lacing down the sides of the glass. Aroma of malty caramel hops, juicy hop resin, vanilla, oak, and massive amounts of pine and honey. Medium, mellow body on this IPA. The first sip is smooth and creamy, followed through by oaky vanilla flavors and finishing with a caramely, malty burn The finish is so delicious and rewarding. This beer is outstanding. Another VASTLY underrated Cigar City ale.

Draft at Mr. Beeryís. Dark rosy red with a thin head. The aroma is nuclear weapon-strength, thick with oily goodness. And it drinks like a delicious paint remover, thick oily and viscous, ripe with a piney stickiness. Delicious. (#3930, 6/25/2010)

Bottle thanks to hopscotch. Pours a reddish brown with offwhite head. Nose is strong caramel and molasses. Taste is hops bathed in caramel malts, citrus, brown sugar and molasses. Very sweet. Heavy caramel malt character.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2010 My first rating. had this 750ml bottle and on cask at cigar city. ill review the cask. drank at room temperature. Pours dark orange with a nice full head. Aroma is very hoppy, citrusy. pleasing to the senses. Might be the sweetest beer iíve had. Can enjoy the Grapefruit, Peach, orange taste all the way down. Very full body beer in my mouth. Wish they were had more production planned for this beer. I dont wanna drink my last one. I Love this beer.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2010 I have to thank my good friend and fellow rocker JT for getting me a bottle of this while he was in Tampa. Iíve been greatly anticipating this beer since I first heard of itís inception many months back and itís definitely lived up to itís hype thus far. The aroma has notes of citrus, floral hops, light dried fruits, and malts. I get more of the citrus notes then hops which I was somewhat surprised by, since itís IBU is 110. The color is a dark brown with a light orange hue to it, when held up to the light. The foam, or lack there of, quickly dissolved after pouring it into my glass. The texture is very smooth and light, the after taste doesnít stick on my mouth like most IPAís Iíve tried in the past, but rather leaves a sweet citrus bittery bite. One of my favorite Cigar City beers that Iíve tried thus far.

On tap at le brickstore. Pour is a hazy orange. Intense citrus aroma and flavor. A big but well balanced malt body and corresponding sweetness really add to the enjoyment. Citrus aroma is mostly orange. The flavor has an orange candy like aspect to it. It sort of reminds me of those old school candyís that are sort of chewy and shaped like orange slices. Really great drink here with the citrus and sweetness mixing together to give a well rounded and thoroughly entertaining drink.

On Cask and in bottle from Cigar City...Better on cask. Pours a gorgeous ruby-red with a small tan head that completely dissipates. Aroma is strong candied sugars, various hops, strong sugared grapefruit, and honey. Flavor is slight bitterness, sweet honey and sugared grapefruit up front that fades into a nice sweet bitterness. Full body, a tad cloying, but a great warmth to it. This beer was better on cask...the sweetness and bitterness seemed to separate much more in bottle and alot of the biterness was sitting at the bottom...still great in my opinion...I guess it depends on what you like...if you insist that a beer must be true to its style to be good...then you probably wont like this...but i dont draw boundaries on my beer styles...it tasted good, smelled good, and looked great...So in my book, its a great beer.

Pours an orange amber haze with a nice white foam head. Has an aroma of grapefruit. Hints of caramel and pine. Has a citrus sweet taste with notes of caramel, vanilla, and maple syrup. A very syrup like DIPA. Strong malt backbone as well. Bitters are there but subdued.
