DocLock (8171) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid orangy brown; the color of a really old penny, with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is great; lovely notes of mango, pineapple, tangerine, spare caramel malt. Tastes resiny, with notes of pineapple, tangerine, mango. Malt seems a bit light in the taste, with a dry finish and some floral notes.

12oz brown bottle. Golden with a little haze, big white head. Aromas of caramel and orange/tangerines. Taste has a little caramel, citrusy hops. Modest bitterness and light hoppy aftertaste. Ok brew, could be brighter, was hoping for a bit more of a punch to this one.

Poured from the 4-pack, nice chunky foam good dark look in the glass. Hoppy taste, with fresh fruit. Very easy drinking and delightful, I wish it were a 6-pack. I would give this beer the Lorne Greene award if there were such a thing.

dresden (1027) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - FEB 17, 2015
Bottle from Tony. Dark orange with a big head. Citrusy and caramel with a big powerful pine smell. Overly sweet and yet overly bitter, hops are kind of secondary, even galaxy couldnt save this one.

dark orange. no head. nose is pretty dank. very astringent overpowering pine cone aroma. almost no malt backbone at all. tons of resent hops. very bitter. galaxy hops are redeeming but this just isn’t a great beer. would love to have it fresher I think.

Sampled at tasting. Pours darkish amber with low white head. Aroma with notes of caramel, honey, some citrus and pine. Taste is bitter with a full size body and a lingering soft bitterness in the finish.

arnold931 (701) - Iowa, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours crystal clear copper with a tiny off white head. Nose is orange marmalade sweetest. Taste is grapefruit and pine bitterness. Malt sweetness comes through midtaste and then the bitterness comes back.

Firefly54 (241) - - JAN 13, 2015
Hazy orange colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma - Pine resin and orange marmalade are the two main players on the nose. Taste - Galaxy hops provide a lot of orange pith against a sticky sweet malt backbone. Not a lot of bitterness. Soft mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Very drinkable for 8% but might get a little cloying towards the end of the glass!

A citrus aroma comes from the glass. Taste: citrus fruity flavor, hoppy malty flavor on the back end. Simply wonderful.
