Bottle. Pours a clear dark orange with a slight amber hue with an taupe head that dissipates slowly to a film around the edges. Aroma has a bit of pine hops and a sweet biscuit note. Flavor begins with strong pine hops, but a more refined grassy hop profile and sweet grains finish the beer.

On tap at Tribes Alehouse. Golden orange color with small white head that receded quite a bit but still left huge thick rings of lacing. The aroma wasnít as hoppy as expected, lots of honey and caramel though. The flavor was a different story however. Pretty sweet to start, but finishes with a lot of pine and citrus. Bitter finish. Good beer.

12oz bottle from Jungle Jims and Belmont Party. Pours clear golden orange with white head. Aromas of honey, caramel malts, light floral hops, and light citrus. Flavors of sweet malts, honey, bitter hops, and some orange and other citrus notes. Quite a bit of sweet malt, but has enough hops to keep it balanced. Has kind of tropical fruit sweetness to it. Different but good.

2010 Bottle - Thanks miketd! Pours a hazy orange with a large off white head...aroma is bright and citrusy, caramel, lemon, light pineapple...flavour is plenty malty, lightly bitter grapefruit, floral hops and nicely bitter in the end, but very sticky sweet right up front and it lasts...tasty, although I might need an insulin booster...

had on tap at the brewpub in cleveland. A-hazy golden amber color with a solid white head leaving a decent lace on the glass S-the smell is a little light, notes of a caramel malt base, pine comes in next with tangerine and grapefruit hops in the back T-big hops, the light caramel malt base sets a foundation but the hops are the centerpiece. the pine hits first followed by tangerine with grapefruit in the back and a nice lingering bitter hop finish. M-smooth, a little grainy on the palate with a medium body and a fair amount of carbonation that finishes nice and crisp D-pretty solid taste that hides the alcohol relatively well make it quite enjoyable, the bitterness linger and the crisp finish would probably deter me from drinking multiple beers.

(bottle - 12 oz) Hazy honey color with a very thin white head. Tangy and sweet aroma at the start. Some bitter and citrusy hops as well, but mostly a zesty spice hint. Flavor begins with a tangy and peppery hop bite. Some citrus and flowery notes as well at the start. The flavor drops off hard in the middle and moves to a dry and bitter taste. Aftertaste is much the same. Very dry, peppery and bitter. Definitely not as hoppy as I thought it would be.

Poured from 12 oz bottle while laying around the house on a relaxing Sunday. Appearance looks like pumpkin with a thin dissipating head. Aroma has a nice fruit / lemongrass balance, surprisingly not a hoppy aroma. Taste wise itís hoppy but not as much as I thought it would be, typically these imperial IPAís are just loaded with hops but this really isnít. Iím tasting honey, grass, hops, and liquor. Itís pretty good.

HonkeyBra (3707) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Reddish - Orange pour with whispy white head. Aroma of mango, pineapple, pale malt. Flavor is pretty good. Very fruity with medium bitterness. Lots of peach, mango, pineapple. Some tea, some bread, some caramel malt. Really clean, well-put together DIPA. Body is a bit thin for the style, carbonation is pretty high. But it works. Might be one of my favorite Great Lakes brewers ever.

Nice head with a lime aroma. Nice light brown and a smooth taste. Has a vodka-like kick in the back of your throat.
