4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a hazy brownish orange with a foamy off white head that laced. Aroma of orange zest, like lemon hints, mango and other tropical fruits. Flavor of strong notes of orange and lemon zest...wow. So fresh and "zesty". The citra and sorachi hops play so well with the citrus zest. What a wonderful pairing. Malt profile is there with some light sweet notes to help balance this out. However overall the beer is dry, crisp and carbonated.

Had this as a bottle but also fresh from the tap at the brewery. Pours clear orange/gold with a bit of off white head. The aroma is very interesting, with lots of hops, citrus, some earthy notes, lemon and orange come out more after a bit. A bit of malt on the palate to balance things out, light bodied, wheaty, a bit of herbal hops. Dry with a nice bitter finish that isn’t overdone.

On tap in the breweries tasting room. Had this just minutes after receiving a speeding ticket in Ithaca. @#$%^&* Hazy orange with head and lace. Very citrus hop sweet lemon pastry aroma. Some fruity orange sweetness with fruity and slightly bitter finish. Nice balanced palate. Myself,Dan and the other Dan tasted all 8 beers on tap while Joe(our driver) had Ginger beer. He liked that.

Hazy peach pour with a vivacious off white head and a bit of sediment. The nose is pure fruit cocktail- apricot, mandarin, peach, orange, grapefruit, lemon, and juicy bubblegum. A slightly more resinous hop character follows in the form of herbals and citrus peels. The flavor holds much more bitter notes, with lemon, orange, grass, wheat grain, floral resin, and perfume. The palate is medium to full with light effervescence, making for a soft texture. Reeeallly yummy.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy amber pour with tons of sediment and a big frothy white head. Aroma holds fruit cocktail; pear, peach, mandarin orange, grapefruit, and a touch of mango. Very fruit forward hop profile, also including lemon zest, bubblegum, with the faintest touch of grass and herbs. Some nice sweet malt balance as well. Flavor is much more bitter, with lots of lemon, grass, wheat grain, and leafy and floral presence that balances out the nectar/citric fruit from the aroma. Mouthfeel has medium to full bodied, great effervescence that isn’t too aggressive, and the booze is hidden beautifully. Very very good stuff..

Bottle:   Honey colored, like creamed honey, thick and cloudy, moderate white head, foamy, fairly nice lacing.   Has an American Oak aroma.   Don’t recall seeing that this beer is on Oak, but it sure smells like it.   Otherwise minor candied citrus peel.   Touch of pine, oak, citrus rind, and hops on the tongue.   Seems fairly smooth, not overly bitter.   I could see this being a bit wheaty, given its body.   Tangy, in a citrus way, mildly bitter, and a bit grassy.   This one is very interesting.   Yeah, zesty, semi-sweet, citrusy, wheaty, very interesting.   Still seems like its a bed of Oak I am getting.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Finish has a little bit of this powdery tang like presense.   Its like an IPA wrapped in Oak, with tons of citrus peel that isnt too astringent, with a touch of wheat to give it some body.   Somewhat of an odd duck, but it really works.   Thanks to jblauvs for the bottle!
