12oz bottle. A very full hop flavor, but seems a little too overpowering versus the lower alcohol content.

brokensail (12277) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Amber in color with a white head. Sweet tropical fruit, sugar, and citrus notes. Some mango, pineapple, and grapefruit notes. A hint of booze, sweet caramel, and grass. Tastes of pineapple, mango, peach, and grapefruit. A bit of floral hops, very light pine, and plenty of caramel malt and sweetness.

Orange pour at GABF, white head. Aroma has some nice sticky malts and lotsof grassy and citrus hops. Flavor is sticky at times and hoppy at others. Pretty interesting brew. The hops peek in and out behind the malt bill.

Ughsmash (7264) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Bottled. Poured a nice shade of sunset orange with a sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up warm, aged caramel and toffee malts with grapefruit and peppery notes around.. touches of butter and cardboard too.. I just got it, but it was definitely old. The flavor found the same story.. warm, aged malts (this time caramel, molasses, and a touch of licorice) with broken down hops (citrus and black pepper) around.. tacky right before the finish.. not bad, but not big enough to age for very long. Medium-bodied with a spotty flow through the palate.. a bit warm for the ABV.. I’d like to try it fresh sometime.

Hazy copper color, nice fine head with good lacing. Surprisingly faint pine hop aroma, caramel sweetness, but pleasant. West coast IPA bitterness up front nicely integrated with a light malty sweetness. Alcohol is well-hidden.

Tap. Pours clear amber with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma is rather faint, with grapefruit and pine dominating. Flavor is pine, grapefruit, spruce, some malt sweetness, butter. Mouthfeel is full and a bit creamy. Finish is medium bitter.

deyholla (7528) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear amber orange with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has some musty pine with a good amount of grapefruit and just a hint of underlying caramel. Flavor begins with grapefruit and is joined by a musty pine note with more of a bread backing.

Draft review from old notes. Mostly clear medium amber color with a one finger whitish head. Citrusy aroma with some caramel malt and mild butter. A little buttery on the flavor as well, but nice besides that with grapefruit and other citrus. A good hop bite. Medium-plus body with average carbonation. Overall decent.

Pours a light golden with little haze. Aroma is pineapple, mango and some sweetness. Taste follows with a huge sweetness that lingered. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours copper with a creamy cream head. Aroma is pine and earth. Flavor has a kick in the mouth of piney hops.
