COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bright golden, with citrus flavor and an aroma that combines notes of grapefruit, orange zest and a touch of the tropics. Like a warm ray of sunshine on a cold winter’s day.

Great smell. Not as strong a flavor as I’d prefer. Light on hops. Very tasty, still.

Pours a clear orange/amber with a nice white head. Aroma is all citrus and pine. Taste is fairly hoppy with some spice and maltiness also. Nice IPA.

Very sweet citrus flavor with lots of malting. Decently hopped, but very intense sweetness dominates. Not bad.

UDBeernut (1848) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle from unclemike. Pours amber with a off white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Like gobs, totally coats my glass. Nose of toast, caramel, and lots o’pine. Ample bitterness charges like a bull on parade. Finish is the pine express. Dry and lingering. Body is solid.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2013 Beautifu crystal clear copper color topped with a thick cream colored head. Tons of lacing, and an inviting, crisp nose when poured from a bottle. Taste and mouthfeel are both a bit thin, making this almost feel more like a summer beer than an early winter release. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A clear deep honey body sits beneath a tall creamy, mostly smooth off white head leaving fairly delicate, almost frothy lace with dimension

Mildly assertive, yet warm and smooth, a friendly mix of hops and smoothing malts, citrus heavy with tropical and lightly floral supporting layers backed by toasted, mellow malts on a smooth med-med light body with delicate residuals echoing the flavors

12oz best by 5th week of Feb 2014 at 45º into Spiegelau IPA glass

Bottle received in trade from RobertDale, thanks for the opportunity! Pours a cleat dark golden color with a smallish frothy white head that quickly settles to a cap on top. Citrus, earthy and spicy hops dominate the aroma. Bready with light caramel malts provide a hint of balance to an otherwise hoppy nose. The flavor is a bit sweeter than the aroma let on. Rich bready sugary honey maltiness provides a nice base for nice hit of spicy citrus hop flavor and a moderate amount of bitterness that lingers long into every sip. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a slick resinous mouthfeel. Nice IPA

Bif (1559) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Pours a deep golden color with a good head that lasts with ample lacing. Aroma of citrus, some pine with malt sweetness and touch of spice. Taste of citrus, malt, caramel sweetness with bit of spice and grain. Nice bitterness just a bit of lingering pine aftertaste. Medium body, crisp, clean and refreshing. Nicely balanced. Verry enjoyable beer worth checking out.

Light copper pour. Nice head. Light lace. Citrus aroma with a hint of yeast. The description is spot on. This beer tastes lightly of grapefruit and sunshine.
