Tap at the BORIS Van Wink Release. Pour is very hazed deep amber with an off white head. Nose is huge citrus blast, orange peel and hints of grapefruit with a small touch of doughy malt underneath. Taste follows suit on hops, huge hop explosion. Tons if juicy orange citrus with some grapefruit notes and bitterness. Notes of dough malt and some cereal grains. Lighter body with nice carbonation and a pillowy feel. Bitterness lingers through the finish.

At a tasting, thanks DSG, mrdium bubbly head, hazy and a little murky deepish orange color, aroma of herbs, shrubs and green apples, flavor is a melange of fruits with some herbs and pine in the back. A little different and not over the top. Very good.

AndyReynolds said: It smells awesome, that’s for sure. A little light in the body but still a solid beer. Superspak says, " 22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating but was released in April 2013. Pours moderately hazy orange amber color with a 1-2 finger dense cream colored with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of huge tangerine, mango, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, grapefruit, orange rind, floral, grass, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/tropical hops with a fair amount of malt balance; and big strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, orange peel, lemon zest, pineapple, mango, orange rind, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Light floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of bright citrus, citrus zest, pineapple, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity and balance of citrus/tropical hops; with a light-moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic IPA! Great all around balance and complexity of hop flavors with a fair amount of malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering." He gave it a 4.3.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Cloudy orange with an off-white head. Lovely hoppy aroma of tropical fruits, and citrus. Flavor has some sweetish malt, fruity hops and nice bitterness. Medium-bodied, lively carbonation. Nice.

Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is strong of the citrus and pine hops with some caramel hops. Flavor is strong of mostly the pine hops with some citrus and caramel malts. A hint of some warming on the finish as well. Overall a decent brew.

Julie would hate taste like feet that have walk in a field of dingle berries. Yuck. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a good beer. I’m not a fan of these new hops that give that mango and tropical fruit flavor, but I liked this nonetheless. The aroma was fantastic. There was a nice citrus hop aroma that turned more into melon as it warmed. Pour was a nice dark orange with a white film for a head. Taste was very complex, juicy and delicious that changed as it warmed. Nice strong grapefruit rind and pine in the beginning. As it warmed, started bringing out juicy cantaloupe, honeydew and watermelon juice. Liked it colder, but a nice transformation. Mild carbonation round the beer out. Very different

hopscotch (9489) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle... Murky burnt-orange ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Good retention. The nose is an intermingling of tea biscuit, citrus peels and a medley of tropical fruits. Medium to full-bodied with modest carbonation. The flavor issues biscuity sweetness, tons of tropical fruit flavor and a moderate measure of rindy bitterness. Lengthy, fruity, bittersweet finish. This bottle was provided by growler!
