Bomber. Pours a cloudy orange color with a small foamy head that fades to a ring, leaves some nice webbing. Aromas are citrus fruit, caramel, sugary fruit juice, tea, flowers and grapefruit. Taste is pretty sweet with only a moderate bitterness. Has a pretty nice complexity but the flavors don’t seem to mix well. Tastes buttery with lots of sugary citrus juice, caramel and flowers. Medium body and a great oily and buttery mouthfeel. Overall, a bit odd but decent. Lots to like but some flaws too.

Bottle shared thanks to rbrazell! Pours a hazy copper from the bottle with thin lacy off-white head that leaves light spotting. Aroma of caramel malt, booze, and sweet citrus. Taste follows, a bit more balanced. Pretty decent, but nothing exciting.

Bottle from rbrazel! Sun burst orange. Sweet citrus candy aroma. Mouth feel is really sweet and sticky. To cloyingly sweet. I don’t like the super sweet ipas.

Bottle from CBX. Clear bet pour with a bubbly white head. Sweet caramel malt and toast in the nose with citrus and pine. Sweet, resiny flavor with toast and caramel malts leading to a bitter end. Meh, a little too sweet.

Enjoyed a glass of this beer at the brewpub in Winston-Salem, NC. The beer had a hazy deep orange-amber color with a small white head that had modest retention, and lighter cling and lacing. It featured a strong citrus and spice aroma with a touch of pine and a slight earthyness. The beer was a sour and bitter mix with a strong citrus hop character along with some lighter notes of pine and straw. It had a very dry body and a quite filling mouthfeel, with low carbonation and a thick character.

Bitter, stale hops, floral and tea, no idea how fresh, but thinking it might be past its prime.

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with off white head. Aroma is crisp citrus and fruity hops and sweet. Taste follows the aroma with a lot of citrus and a sweet taste to round it out. Light body. Very good.

In the upstairs room at Barley’s. Comes out of the tap a hazy dark amber with a fair wheat head. Aroma is quite hoppy with a fruity undertone. Strongly hoppy flavor has citrus and malty undertones and a hint of caramel. Firm texture has fizz to spare and leaves a lively, hoppy finish. This one could have you seeing double, so designate a driver - or call a taxi.
