This beer is amazing...

Sample at the Cleveland International Beer Fest on 5/14/11. Pours clear orange with a thin off-white head. Aroma of orange, pine, malt and spice. Grassy hop flavor with a malt balance before a zesty orange and grapefruit finish.

0.75l - Nice looking, nice smelling ale with decent lace. Palate was just absolutely taken over by the citrus peel, making it taste like a cup of purfume to me. Balance was missing.

Had at Tap NY. Certainly a bold beer. Very hoppy with a nice blast of citrus as well. Definitely a beer to sip slowly and let the flavors wash around.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy slightly dark golden yellow and a big frothy white head and good lacing. Aroma is rich with citrus and orange. Intensely tang and citrus hops. Taste is an absolute blast of lemon, orange peel. Yeast, citrus hops and sorachi ace are very up front. This is a fun beer, I couldn’t drink it all the time but would be fantastic on a hot day on a patio.

This poured a cloudty orange color with a white head. Aroma was of orange peel, yeast, and coriander. Taste is very sweet, some yeasty notes, and citrus rind too. Alcohol is present as well. Not a huge of imperial wheats.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours out an attractive orange/amber color with a foamy white head. Aroma is coconut, citrus, lemon zest and some light spice, lots of the Sorachi Ace come through on the aroma. Taste is much the same as the aroma, lemon, coconut, light citrus hops, orange, and some interesting herbal notes creep in there before the dry finish. Definitely a solid brew with alcohol well hidden.

Nice strong bright white head of very small and dense bubbles. Excellent carbonation. Wonderful aroma loaded with cirtus and ripe fruit. Oranges, grapefruit, pine and some mint in this pungent aroma. Color is a bright golden orange. Lots more juicy oranges in the flavor with some soft malts, a bit of astringency, some honey sweetness and some light herbal notes late swallow. Light alcohol warming with a somewhat bitter finish and lingering dry grasses and herbs. A pretty good brew with a great aroma!
