Artichoke (64) - California, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Super foamy, but this may be caused by our lack of bottle opener. Fruity, slightly metallic. Not sohoppy.

thirstyrabbit (1095) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle. Orange body, tall to medium head. Weak aroma with sweet caramel syrup. Sweet caramelly taste with disturbing hints of Robitussin. Very low bitterness for an IPA, it’s more like an APA. Finish has more sweet cough syrup or rotting tangerines. Disappointing.

czar (4259) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 30, 2014
(small gusher) pours dirty golden orange with a slightly creamy off-white head, some retention and lacing. intense fresh orange blossom water, tangerine skin, some sweetness - orange juice, booze, gentle resin and pepper, sweetish toasted maltiness, melon and caramel touch. moderately low carbonation, light body - very oily, slightly boozy, tingling peppery and piney-grassy-woodsy-citrusy finish. integrated citrusy-like hops in this japanese orange blossom water concoction. unique.

Rob_D_UK (744) - Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2014
Pours a hazy amber colour with fine floating particles. Thin white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of sweet floral citrus, honey, mild yeast. The taste is pale malt, honey and citrus.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
Marduk (2637) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 21, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear golden color. Small size, white head, stays. Malty, denim? sweat? dirty orange peel in aroma. Citrus, candy, sweet taste. Soft carbonation. Kind of weird and messy.

3.7
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
njnut (225) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Poured into flute a orange amber color with pastime white head and lace. Aroma was malty, breach, with some orange oil. Taste was malts, biscuit with the orange coming in the finish. Not the grapefruit or pine hop bombs being made in the USA, this is very different. Lighter and malty in taste, very drinkable and refreshing. A winner for me.

FatPhil (9258) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 18, 2014
330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
Slightly sticky American pale ale aroma. Some odd pencil shavings, don’t normally get that from the aroma. Pale amber, small tight head. Palate thinish, carbonation quite high. Mashy malts, some soapiness in the taste. Hops very bitter, some white pepper, but almost metallic in the finish. A touch too harsh.

Ratman197 (9648) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle poured a cloudy orange amber with a small lasting creamy amber head. Aromas of biscuit, candied orange, earthiness and light pink grapefruit. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, candied orange and light grapefruit with a smooth dry lingering citrus finish.
