FROTHINGSLOSH (4971) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Sampled on draft this beer poured a murky dark apricot color with an enormous fluffy orange-white head that lingered and left incredible lacing. The aroma was tart, sour and tangy with moderate tropical fruits and lemon. The flavor was dryish with notes of pepper, bread, tropical fruits and lemon. Medium length finish of bread and tropical fruit. Medium body. Solid.

boxofrane (2143) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Bottle from Mari’s. Pours hazy orange with almost no head to speak of. The aroma is unusual. There is a little hop presence and maybe a little strange citrus. The tate is fairly sweet with some grapefruit flavor and a little hoppiness on the finish. I’m not overly impressed.. not sure I buy this as a Belgian IPA either.

Transfer from BA review on 11-19-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a hazy amber-orange color with some light red highlights. Upon pouring there is a nice 1.5 finger white head. The head has a good level of retention, fading slowly over time and leaving a decent level of lacing on the side of the glass. Smell – The nose is overall very light. The aroma is mainly of a bready and a light yeast smell, mixed with some grapefruit citrus and pine hop and a bit of orange citrus sweetness. Taste – The taste begins with a bready and sweeter citrus flavor. The citrus starts largely orange in nature, but soon grapefruit comes to the tongue. The grapefruit at the start is on the sweeter side with some flavors of yeast mixed with it. Some pine hop and other lighter fruit flavors come to the tongue more toward the middle of the taste. At the end, the citrus flavors of orange and grapefruit change more from sweet to bitter and mix with some herbal hop flavors to cast a bitter to linger on the tongue which leaves a somewhat off flavor that does not fit with the rest of the flavors to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is average side in terms of creaminess with a carbonation level that is slightly on the lower side. A boost in the carbonation may have been nice to accentuate the fruit flavors and to meld out the strange bitter flavor it leaves on the tongue. Overall – Its taste was fairly nice upfront but with the lingering off-bitter at the end it is not one I would likely go to on more occasion.
