Bottle from Total Wines, Sterling VA. Deep gold with a slight white head. Big citrus fruits, a hint of earthy spice, warming alcohol in the finish. Good.

I make it a habit not to buy anything that is labeled organic. Luckily for this beer, it was not so labelled or I never would have tried it. Aroma stands out inthis beer as it does with the Fish IPA. Probably uses Willamette finishing hops.

The beer pours out a hazy orange body, 1" small white head. Moderately hopped, nicely balanced. Soft malty sweetness, some grapefruit-like hops come up. Flavor is sweeter up front with a nice bitter grapefruit finish. Easy drinking.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle. Promising aroma of hops and spiced malt. Good lookin partly cloudy gold. I taste piney and citrus hops with pepper, grass and malt. Feels a bit astringent at first but it mellows quickly. Interesting and enjoyable.

Bottle. Poured orange gold with thin white head. Moderate lacing. Floral and citrusy aroma. Hoppy flavour. Balanced with some sweetness to balance the hop. Lasting middle of the tongue finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
IPA-like winter warmer. Think low-bitterness IPA with winter warmer spices. Unusual to say the least, but the jury is still out on whether straddling these two styles makes sense. B/B-

Bottle from Beer Revolution. Pours cloudy amber with a modest beige head and a honey aroma. There is a medium-bodied toffee flavor with a bittersweet honey and citrus finish. An interesting brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Cloudy orange body, full of sediment, thin off-white head. Nose of oxidized citric hops and lots of bready/crackery malt and yeast. Hoppy body with orange and tangerine rind and pulp, toasty, bready malts, and alcohol notes. Bitter, hoppy finish. Light caramely sweetness. Not bad but I’ll review a fresher bottle next winter.
