Nice overall, well balanced but not memorable. Smells of citrus, tropical fruit, hops and honey. Taste starts with peaches, followed by honey and a not too bitter aftertaste. Had in the bottle.

22oz bottle into wine glass. Park Rapids, MN. Appearance is cloudy orange/yellow with massive head and lots of lacing. Sediment on the bottom. Bottle foamed when opening. Aroma is nice, strong grapefruit, orange. Taste is bitter. Palate is medium, very carbonated, clean finish. Overall the beer is really nice. Aroma is top notch. Carbonation is a little much though.

ARH (707) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2014 On tap, poured into a stemmed tulip sampler. Tropical sweet citrus notes of banana, pineapple, and orange strike the nose with some light floral hints. It’s a murky, dull yellow brown color with a sudsy white head and a white medium thin ring with a dusty surface. It leaves behind a light speckled lacing. The taste is a nicely balanced, medium sweet and bitter. The beer has a slick, waxy texture with a medium full body and an above average, fizzy carbonation. The palate starts juicy and sweet with a grainy middle, then a bitter, peel finish with some spice and resin. It’s crisp and dry with a fairly strong citrus peel aftertaste.

gad905 (198) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle from HOTD, drank at home. Very hazy (almost opaque) burnt orange, thin off-white head. Super-sweet aroma of oranges and light caramel, some grapefruit, some grass. Tastes moderate sweet toffee caramel and then quite big bitterness, plenty of grapefruit citrus, some floral, some grass, some almost savoury onion notes (summit maybe?), not unpleasant. Bit of peppery dryness afterwards, quite subtle. Quite soft carbonation, just a little prickle at the start of each mouthful then dies down. Medium-full body, quite thick texture, a bit slick. Pretty good, but not quite as good as hoped, given this brewery’d reputation.

On tap. A : Cloudy browned yellow. White head. Lacing. N: Very grassy. Pine. Grapefruit. Orange zest. Earth. Biscuit. Black peppercorn. Hop monster. T: Bitter and bready sweet - an exemplar of the style. M: Very dry, like a desert. Alcohol is hidden. Medium body. Tickling carbonation. O: Powerful DIPA. When it is on, it is on, and this batch delivers.
