tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - JAN 31, 2012
There’s nice cookie-dough-like malt sweetness beneath strong orange and grapefruit citrus hops in the aroma. Clear brown body is topped by a decent, off-white head that recedes to a lasting cover with some lacing. Strong malt flavours offset by strong bitterness with plenty of citrus hop flavours and some resiny notes. Sweetness comes out in the finish but the slightly harsh bitterness really lingers. Medium body with soft-bubbled carbonation makes for a very nice mouthfeel. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle from the BCLS at Hellsgate in January 2012.

Uit blik (0,5l) geschonken. Oranje-amberkleurig bier. Aromas van mout, gist, hop, citrus, vanille. Smaak van mout, hop, gist, vanille, mandarijn, sinaasappel. Heerlijk zoet-zacht-bitter van smaak, met een nasmaak die bitter-hoppig is met een sinaasappelsmaak erdoorheen. Heerlijk!

MelvinKalksma (691) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2016

Aroma:
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, orange, tropical fruit, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque golden/amber beer with medium yeast and with a medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, orange and tropical fruit; ends slightly bitter with hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer achieves a good balance between malts and hops, but could have been more deep and complex. Extremely drinkable and with an amazing flavour.

473 ml. can. Canned on 13OCT2015. Great art. Lightly hazy orange amber with a creamy off-white head. Nose is milky yeast mixed in with mellow pine hops, orange rind & low toffee sweetness. Taste is mellow pine hops, orange peel, some milky yeast leading into a pleasantly sweetish vanilla, toffee & butterscotch malt finish. Creamy body,… Quite lovely, great mix of USA hops & sweetish malts, works really well. Feels like something that Stone would be proud of. I am really dinging the sweetness in the back, drinks really well. Age might have mellowed it a bit but I think that I might actually prefer this one like this with muted hops. I would definitely repeat buy this sucker if it was local etc. Drinks really well, very nice.

Can at first Wednesday tasting @ de Molen. Clear deep golden pour, thin white head. Aroma of fruity hops, resin, citrus, pine, some grass and with some sugary malts. Flavor is quite bitter, fruity sweet and with a nice balance. Decent body. Good beer.

Vert satisfying and reminded me of a "lite" arrogant bastard on the nose. It is less abrasive and perhaps a touch "spicier" on the tongue, but still incredible drinkable as others have said. Great. Can.

jsquire (4065) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2016
Amber color out of the can with a short lived off white head. Malt syrup nose with orange notes. Full flavored beer with fruit, grapefruit rind, caramel, marmalade, malt syrup, and crusty bread. Big alcohol finish. Definitely a warming winter beer.
