Pours to a hazy orange hued chestnut colored body with a white head. The aroma is a light orange covered chocolate. Like orange oil. The flavor is bitter grassy and pine hops with some light oranges and bitter malt. No signs of chocolate. The palate is medium bodied and has an extreme lingering bitterness.

Bottle share... Thanks, Donny! Aroma is sweet like oranges with a dank, hop smell. Appearance is a murky bronze. Taste starts sweet then turns slightly hoppy then finishes sweet. Palate is surprisingly sweet. Overall, a interesting beer. Would try again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Review from backlog, bottle tasted 08/12/2012. Pours reddish brown, light tan head. Aroma of sweet caramel malts, burnt sugar, mild pine hoppiness. Taste is sweet, vanilla caramel, toffee, prune, resinous piney hop character, verging on the slightly sour. Medium body. This was a bit off- weak as an IPA, not nice even as a barleywine, a bit of a confusing hybrid.
