Beautiful ruby red color. Caramel malt is pretty awesome with some spicules as well. Finish is peppery and a naive citrus bite to it.

1" off white head looks like whipped cream.. tons of lace.. and great retention... The brew is slightly hazy deep orange.
Nose seems a little muted for the name of the beer .. Donít get me wrong, there is alot of stuff going on here, but none really jump out of the glass. Lite citrusy hops and a more than a bit of caramel.. more hoppy fruitiness show as it really warms up.. and the malts help drive the hoppy nose.
Flavor has a much more fruity hops than the nose.. minerally and sorta tropical with lesser citrus.. caramel malts and toasty elements really help the hops push forward... bigger body than expected with a light carbonation... really pretty smooth.. could use a bit more carbonation to make things prance around a bit.
I am really surprised ... the hoppy bitterness was really pretty mellow.. instead it allowed the flavor additions to do the talking... Very tasty.

12 oz bottle date code 9/09/15. Pretty fresh, so Iím confused why this is oxidized already. Plus it has an acetaldehyde issue. Still kinda drinkable, but not pleasant.

Bottle @ home, picked up at Liquor Mart in Boulder. Iím surprised I havenít had this one before. Pours a hazy, deep reddish orange appearance with a tan head. The aroma is oxidized, some pine, bread, light toast, mild citrus. Mouth feel is a little goopy. Dull bitter, piney hops. Light citrus. Some grapefruit. Also a little stale. Note to self: beware of shelfies at Liquor Mart.

355ml bottle. Reddish pour. Super bitter beer here, the bottle is a few months old but the bitterness has been kept intact. The hopiness si pine and lighter fruits with some citrus, a nice blend and isnít too acidic luckily form the summit.

On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and snifter served showing a clear, coppery amber color, with a fairly persistent, fingerís width of tan, head foam, and ribbons & spots of lacing. The nose offered juicy esters of pit & tropical fruit, with citrus as grapefruit, and a bit of pine on the back. Medium+ bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste added a pronounced, citrus & rind bitterness, plus tart astringency that lingered into the finish with a bit of malt sweetness. Tasty & assertive throughout.

Big bottle pours out a dark amber topped with a sand head. Nose is toffee caramel sweetness hop resin citrus and some spice. Taste is as the nose with a nice hop combo and a good sweet malt bill to help balance the hop load.

Great hops and I'm realizing it's the resin I like in hoppy beers. I don't smoke, but make those beers sticky.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep amber color with a small beige head that quickly shrank to a lasting ring. Thick nose of tangerine and candied orange peel and hop resin. This is a big, chewy hoppy beer with lots of candied orange peel, grapefruit rind, peach and marmalade flavors with a long bitter hop resin finish. Just enough of a malt backbone to keep it balanced. Really big beer.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tangerine and dried leaves bouquet. Clear copper, medium yellow head, nice lace. Honey, tangerine, grapefruit, maraschino cherries, good intensity, dank. Medium body, oily, smooth soft carbonation. Nice intensity, complexity, and balance. Everything comes together really well, with a juicy hop bill that is neither too sharp nor dull. Excellent texture. I would drink this often if I lived in Idaho.
