From bottle. Dark golden orange color. Great citrus and grapefruit hop aroma. Well hopped, but very balanced with a sweet citrus caramel and tart grapefruit flavor. Finishes with an intense hop kick and slight warming.

Bottle at Jester King Zwanze Day. Orange pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor are classic West Coast hops. I get some big orange and grapefruit notes. The flavor also has a bit of biscuit malt to keep the bitterness in check. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice beer.

650 ml. bottle sampled @ Firestone Walker Tasting. Thank you! Hazy orange, creamy white. Nose is substantial yeast presence, thick, citrus, honey. Taste is honey, medicinal hop, muted dough, citrus peel, med. bitter. Tad yeasty body. Could have used more outspoken hop-character here & less yeast, cleaner, decent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Golden amber with a big foamy head. The aroma is full of a big hoppy northwest pine edge. This drinks with a grapefruit edge, and is a little sticky on the palate, almost gluey. Really enjoyed it. (#5800, 10/8/2014)
