25.4 oz bottle. Hazy brass with a fluffy white head. Nose is wheat, orange and lemon zest with hints of pineapple. Juicy medium body with a tingle. Lingering resiny hops and citrus peel. Taste is vibrant bitter orange, grapefruit and pepper with a touch of honey. Gets cloudy toward the end with the wheat adding some smoothness.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid orangy dark straw colored with big fluffy white head and spare lace. Nose is..wow..gargantuan tangerine, florals, canteloupe, honeydew; a lot like Dreadnaught or Pliny or Troegs Jamba. Tastes very hoppy, citric, floral, with a big ruby red grapefruit taste, navel orange, black pepper, and a smooth finish. Perhaps a biy malt light, but nonetheless, this one is a hop and citrus bomb, and tastes super fresh and just drips off your watering tongue. Absolkutely delicious, but non IBU freaks and citrus freaks won’t care for this one as much as I do, and frankly, I don’t give a damn about that, Scarlett.

Pours an opaque light golden brown with slight head. Nose is not strong but bubble gum & citrus are present. First sip is malty but balanced with Citra hops and the clean with Sorachi aces hops. Nice beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear ruby-orange with barely any head. Aroma of citrus, grassy hops, sweaty hops, and light bitter spices. Flavor of grainy malts, rice, booze, and a citrusy hoppy finish. Heavy palate for a 8.9%-er. Overall, very interesting beer with a solid grainy cerealy palate and plenty of hops.

Golden amber pour, with a fluffy white head. aroma is juicy hops, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, GOD I LOVE CITRA HOPS. And Ithaca knows how to do it. Flavor is bright, fresh, more zest, creamy mouthfeel, lovely orange peel, pineapple juice, some tight, sweet maltiness as well, with only a hint of alcohol. Really, really delightful.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ pacific standard. Pouts a golden tan color with thin head. Smells of lemon, citrus and pine. Tastes of hops, honey and pine. Almost like a double ipa rather then an american strong. Very enjoyable nonetheless. Id have it again

bottle poured a rich golden color with a covering of white head. aroma jumps out at you, dry citrus rind, orange peel, some resiny bitterness, and a bit of malt. mouth feel is crisp with nice coating and high side carbonation. flavor has a bit more bitterness, citrus, grapefruit, nice and dry, with a lingering finish. this is quite smooth and there is little alcohol to be found. wow this is quite yummy.
