On tap at cc: aroma of hops and grapfruit for me. Pours a murky amber. Taste of grapfruit and yes its quiet tasty. Definetely an ipa " feel" all around. More so than a red ale. Nice beer for breakfast!

draft at resurrection for PBW event..holy cow the aroma on this is intense..like walking into the middle of citrus field covered with grapefruit and orange..nose is off the charts..flavor profile follows the nose..fairly easy drinking but seems like the highlight of this one was the nose..easily the most citrus forward nose I can remember coming across...taste comes across as more like fresh squeezed juice than anything else..kind of a confusing beer to match with any particular style..but a few things are certain..this is citrusy and fresh tasting for sure....

PhillyCraft (3255) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Draft at bar, pours brown amber with medium off white head. Nose is candy orange, tangerine, cedar, marmalade, sprees, orange Turkish delight and funky hops. Love this flavor profile, only complaint is it’s a little too artificial tasting. Medium body nice carb. Still awesome.

Fritz123 (1020) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Draft at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Small snifter draft pour. A deep amber pour with a thick white head. You can smell the citrus from about three feet away. Serious grapefruit/orange/lime aroma with a hint of pine and biscuit. The taste was the same with copious amounts of citrus flavors bursting from lips to gullet. Finish is dry, but citrus and pine.

Tap at ccb. Muddy amber with white head and good lacing. Huge citrus juice aroma, lemon lime orange grapefruit. Very juicey. Can smell much else. Taste is super juice. Even the texture is juicey. A little bit of toasted grain is present. Not enough beer taste and kind of a mess.

Holy citrus. This beer pours a golden color from the tap. All you can smell is citrus. Wow! The taste is more of the same. Citrus, grapefruit, pine! It is a good beer.

I really liked this one. The aroma here was intense orange and tangerine with a pine hop bite. Pour is amber colored with a white head. Flavor is intense hops, with a ton of citrus and pine flavors and a malty backbone. My only complaint is that the bitterness on this one just hangs on the palate for a long time.

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2012
This tasted like an amber ale, but had the aroma of a pungent IPA. Lots of fresh oranges and hops in the aroma - zesty almost! The taste is just as sweet, and with the light carbonation you are left with a fantastic tartness. Great stuff!!!

Pint pour at the brewery. Deep hazed amber/brown. Aroma is an orange... That’s it... Intense, straight, heavenly juicy orange. But also a mild citrus from grapefruit to lemon and a touch of caramel malt character. Flavor is much less intense, ranging from heavy citrus and lighter fruits to caramel and toffee. Much more malt noticeable on the mouth than nose. But in a good way. Overall, a nice amber that drinks with a smooth hop. Well done.

Growler. Enjoyed in a wine glass. Dark amber ale. 1 finger head fades slowly. Smells of jolly ranchers, candied oranges and cedar. Taste is similar. Sort of an astringent cough syrup taste. Overall, a glass of it is great. Nice to share for sure.
