Draught at Blind Tiger. Cloudy orange with a lasting 1 1/2 finger off-white head. Earthy bitter apples and cinnamon up front, some citrus hops behind, but not very juicy or bright. Just a little toasted malt. Hops are a little more citrusy in the flavor, still has the apples and cinnamon going on, though the bitterness tends to be the dominant flavor. Alcohol noticeable throughout, semi-dry finish, bitterness peaked at a 7 and lingers with the cinnamon. Medium full body with moderate creamy carbonation. The jury is still out on this one--I appreciate the originality, but too much bitterness, not bright enough aroma hops, and I would’ve liked a little more apple notes. That said, glad I got to try it

Tap at FITR. Pours an dark orange with a thick off white head. Nice apple pie, cinnamon, spices and citrus hops in the aroma. Taste is very much the same, warm apple pie, cinnamon, grapefruit citrus hops all popping through. Excellent brew.

Poured at fruit int the room. A light hazy orange, yellowish color with a stong aroma of hops, apples and a hint of cinnamon. Tastes likr the normal jai lai but with apples, extremely refreshing beer.
