otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2011
Appearance: deep amber and blood orange. Pithy and slightly pink hued head fades into a thin film with thick edges. Swirls thick but no lace.
Nose: yeasty, doughy, spicy. Mandarin orange zest and skin rich with oils. Mango, kiwi, coconut shavings; juicy and intense. Apples and pears mingle with cinnamon in the back. Candied sugar with an essence of paprika and cumin.
Palate: smooth, mouth coating, full, and clings to top of tongue. Big spice in the middle, top, and back of throat; permeates and lingers long. Candied sugars with paprika and cumin. Apple skins are tannic, bitter, and juicy at same time; essence of the fruit freshly picked from an orchard. Mango and mandarin honey. Lips are sticky with spiced apples and mango. Tickle of heat in the back; glowing.
Final Thoughts: while the Holy Mackerel Golden Ale will always have a special place in my heart and in my life, I have to give Panic Attack props. It’s now my favorite beer from Gordash Brewing.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 5, 2011
Bottle from Sam’s in Durham. Pours dark orange with thin beige head. Nose of candied sugar, Belgian funko yeast, wheat, and candied orange/orange zest. Super sweet smelling... and super sweet tasting. I can’t really do this kind of American quad.

Ibrew2or3 (7055) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 23, 2010
Ah Gordash, what have you got here? Pours copper – amber with gold hues and thin white head. The aroma is fruity and off kilter a bit, in a good way. I get prunes, cranberries, cherries and pineapple mixing with subtle and soft yeasty spices. The taste is starts with smooth prunes brightened up with raisins and near tart cranberries creating a pleasing sensation that is a bit palate cleansing as well as snappy and crisp. OK, I’m really diggin’ this. It picks up more raisins, brown sugar and yeasty spices toward the finish. Wow! Well done.

Butters (3812) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 22, 2010
Not as good as their other brews. Clear dull golden pour. sweet and alcohol and some cinnamin spice quality. Not bad, but unique. I’d like to try this aged...

12 oz 2010 bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange with a thick and foamy cream colored head. Aroma of papaya, zesty lemon, pineapple notes and toothpaste. Taste of candied malt, papaya, zesty lemon, banana, bread dough notes, toothpaste and medicine. Strange brew but not bad

nick76 (4253) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2010
The aroma is weird but not in a bad way. It has this citrus pineapple banana things going on and I can’t help but wonder if it is only yeast and hops or is there fruit in this one. It’s so fruity I can’t get much else out of it. It’s estered to the max! The appearance is amber gold with a large foamy head. The taste is like the aroma and again it’s one of the strangest beers that I have had. It’s a bit sour to go along with the sweet and its also strong. The palate is thick. Overall a really really odd beer but I dig it.

12 oz. bottle via trade with smith4498 - Pours a hazy amber color with a 3/4 finger thick light tan head. Light lacing. Aroma is esters, spice, and yeast. Flavor is lightly sweetened malt, esters, spice, and yeast. Medium body. A decent beer. Thanks Jason.

sebletitje (6859) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 1, 2010
bouteille, vintage 2010. Dorée/orange, mousse épaisse blanche. Arôme, levure belge donnant un nez aromatisé et épicé, des notes de fleurs et herbes avec du jus de coco. Un côté sympa sucré, malt. Goût, épais au palais, dans les mêmes tons que l’arôme, je note pas mal de notes florales et d’épices, sucre brun, peut-être des feuilles d’hibiscus? ou des tons de noix de coco. Le palais me rappelle étrangement la Saison Athènes de St-Somewhere du moins de part son aspect sucre-caramélisé avec ces notes de fleurs. Le levure belge est bien là donnant un cote herbacé et poivré.
