jcartamdg (1864) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Pours an amber brown with a thick white head. Aroma of citrus, bitter hops, grapefruit forward. Taste is bitter citrus, grapefruit and other citrus fruits. Good ipa, can’t detect kumquats aside from the usual citrus presence found in Jai Alai.

PhillyCraft (3090) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2012
Poured a glowing orange color, semi hazy. Medium head and lacing. Aromas of strong limonene from the kumquat, flowers, pine needles, Taste is citrus dominant with some herbal notes in there also. Very good.

Zymurgeist2 (941) - Redwood City, California, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Interesting dirty citrus and orange aroma. Hazy dusted gold with white head and large bubbles. Great sweet malt balancing out with the bitterness, which is actually restrained for my left coast palate. Orange and slight dirt....terroir. Medium-thin mouthfeel.

murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 29, 2011
Clear copper, fruity citrus aroma, somewhat sweet, orange. Taste is fruity with lots of orange (I’ve never had a kumquat before so can’t honestly say that I get any), also hoppy with some citrus and light herbal notes. nice hoppy finish.

BrewBoxer (1881) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Draft @ RNH. Bright orange color. Smells of orange and citrus. Sweet with a hoppy aftertaste. Sweeter then the peach IPA but not as good IMO. Decent.

blipp (5857) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Draft. Pours amber orangish with a thin white head. Fruity hoppy aroma with citric orangey notes. The flavor has a good fruity/bitter balance, with citric notes and a floral hoppy finish. Solid.

jredmond (5213) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAR 8, 2011
Draft in nyc during the CIGAR CITY SMOKES RnH event. Pours a bright, hazy orange body with slight lacing. Aroma is light fruit - some orange, fresh hops and citrus. Mouthfeel is smooth and light with notes of fresh fruit, orange, pine and citrus.

italarican (1470) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - MAR 7, 2011
On tap at Rattle n Hum. This definitely fell into that "indistinguishable" category for some of the Cigar City treatments that don’t end up offering much they haven’t done before. Pours a hazy golden orange. Aroma has notes of floral hops, perfume, and some fruit (I guess orange). Spruce and honey first and foremost in the flavor, followed by some fruit. Admittedly not one of my favorites.

Sammy (8358) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2011
Rattle N Hum, Cigar City smokes NYC event. The aroma of oranges, orange colour, and a sizeable head. As if kumquat orange was a substitute for the regular jai alai grapefruit.A little tart as well as hoppy.
