3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This poured a birght orange color with an off white head. Aroma was pretty much all citrus, some being from the hops and other from the orange lemon and lime rind. Flavor was very very bitter, but not hoppy bitter, bitter like when biting into an orange peel, almost offputting, but interesting.

Poured on draft. Appearance is gold with a white head of foam. Aroma is loads of spices: cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg. Taste is much of the same. This is an awesome surprise. I didn’t expect a whole lot, but was I ever wrong. Yum...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the brewery side during the bottle release on 6/25/11. Pours a clear amber color with a thin white head. Nose is citrus all the way. Lemon and lime along with bitter hops and a bit of spice. Malty flavor followed by lime zest and hops, then lemon shows up before just a shade of orange in the finish. If you like citrus, you’ll like this.
