Very flavorful ale with and interesting hoppy and malty flavor. Palate is a little sharp. Aroma is very nice and I really like the golden orange color

Bottle: Dark golden pour with perfect clarity. A creamy finger of sticky beige head. Great retention and tons of sheet lacing. Nose is mostly citrus and pine with a light hint of caramel malt. Sticky, resin-filled mouthful of pine and floral hops. Some citrus too. A decent malt backer, but great hop flavors dominate throughout. Very nice stuff here.

RichTheVillan (2125) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2014
Keg at Brewdog Birmingham; deep amber pour with big off white head, fruity tangerine aroma, citrus and grapefruit taste doesn’t taste like a 7.4 ABV well hidden very drinkable.

kramer (4690) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Tap. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body under a small fizzy white head. The nose is lightly hoppy with pale bready malt and some light honey like sweetness. The flavor is not all that different from a run of the mill APA, except for a bit bigger body and maybe a hint of alcohol. Lightly citrusy hops that finish a bit short for me. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. An OK effort I suppose. But nothing that stands out all that much.

Tonkun (609) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Bottle. Clear red orange pour with a bit of white head that dissipated quickly. Floral, fruity, malty, pine. Medium body with good carbonation. Syrupy and bitter finish.

allmyvinyl (2182) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 24, 2014
355ml bottle from Brewdog Online Shop. Pours clear golden amber, small white head. Aromas of orange and caramel. Taste has more of the same, quite a bitterness to it. As another reviewer says, more of a strong pale ale or IPA than a winter beer. Not bad though.

TheHopster (748) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - JAN 23, 2014
(Bottle). Pours a orange light amber complexion. Nicely unfiltered and filled with orange particulate. The flavor is well balanced with malt, hops and orange zest with understated alcohol. A perfect winter selection. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Sweet fruity caramel malt and sweet vanilla-orange aroma. Hazy amber with a large ivory head. Sweet sticky caramel malt and light bitter hop flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation.

ttroha (171) - Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with frothy white head. Very slight flora aroma, but not much of a scent. Taste of earthy hops and citrus. There were no spices typically associated with winter ales. Very mild aftertaste to offset the hops. A decent beer.
