Tap at champps. Nose is overly sweet. Super smooth and medium hop attack. Decent but not great.

Drake (9005) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Draft at the Jackie O’s Public House, 7/13/14. Pours a hazy orange color with a medium sized creamy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of citrus, tropical, floral, juicy hops, pale malt, mild caramel. The taste is citrus, tropical hops and caramel malt. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, moderate lingering bitterness, good balance.

WVHouseofBeer (892) - Kissimmee, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Draft at Jackie O’s Taproom. Aroma and appearance of pure orange juice, literally like opening a bottle of OJ. Medium body with sweet citrus notes and some bitterness on the backend. Actually a good DIPA but wanted more in the way of a hop bomb.

hopscotch (9558) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Draft... Muckfest 2014… Clear amber pour with a tiny, quickly-dissipating, white head. The aroma is reminiscent of Wrigley’s Juicy Fruit chewing gum. Full-bodied with laid-back carbonation. The flavor is well-balanced, fruity and juicy, but does trend bitter by a narrow margin. Well-developed crunchy malts - doesn’t seem like a lot of caramel. A touch of ethanol is noticeable. Finishes crisp, moderately bitter, grassy, then dry.

markwise (4545) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2014
On draft at Alexandria’s in Findlay. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is tangerine, blood orange, orange peel, white grapefruit, and lingering tropical fruit. Flavor is similar with assertive tropical fruit, tangerine, blood orange, and bitter orange with lingering bitter orange into the finish. Medium to full in body and a nice DIPA overall.

jkwood04 (4175) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 26, 2014
32oz growler in a teku. Pours deep amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of fruity and citrusy and floral hops, some pale and light caramel malts, and hints of dough. Flavor the same with a nice hoppiness. Average texture. Another solid beer from Jackie O’s.

DialSquare (2937) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2014
On tap at Bodega. Copper pour, white head. Aroma of orange, pine, earthy. Tastes are malt forward, butterscotch, resiny, pepper, citrus. Little dry in the finish. 7.2

phaleslu (6843) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Draft at the production brewery’s tasting room. Thanks for the pour, Brad! Pours a clear, bright gold with a small white head that settles into a ring. Big, big juicy aroma on this one. The flavor, though, has more bitterness. Tropical and citrus fruits, florals, grass, and some backing pale and sweet malts. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a juicy, bitter mouthfeel. The galaxy hops really explode in the nose on this one.

On tap at 101 bottles of beer in Kent. Very strong grapefruit and citrus flavor, although it had a bit of a ammonia aroma.
