Nice fruity citrus hop nose, lots of pineapple, some peach, light honey. The taste is light to moderately sweet, lots of citrus, lots of cotton candy. Very nice.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2010 On tap @ Karl Strauss. Pours a mostly clear rust brown color with a fluffy beige head that left some great lacing. Tons of pine, citrus and resin on the nose. Big hoppy flavor with a good amount of sweet malt to add balance to the beer.

On tap @ Blue Foot Bar in North Park. Pours a medium amber with a ruby hue. Great lacing left on the glass. Nice grapefruit aroma and a nicely balanced finish. A pretty good one from the usually boring K.S.

Nice 1/2 inch ivory head tops a liquid tangerine body and leaves moderate spotty lacing on the inside of the glass. Aroma delivers traditional citrus and pine but is overly dominated by caramel malt. Similarly, too sweet for the style. Candied hops might be the best descriptor here. Wouldn’t pass on a glass but not the Southern California profile I look forward to.

Bottle on my 2nd day in San Jose(10/11). Clear brilliant gold under a dissipating white head. Big grapefruit aroma with some burnt caramel, floral and some resin. Taste was smooth delightful grapefruit, tolerable bitterness, mild oak tones. Very floral as well. Big body, long nice linger, with a small boozy warmth. Big yet balanced, with bitter hoppiness and caramel sweetness.

22oz bottle. Rating #55. Dark orange with an off-white head with really nice head retention. Aroma was citrus upfront with a little pine in the background. Thin body and light hops, more citrus and very easy to drink, not bad overall, just seemed to lack that little something. (1150)

Nice bottle from mr. snojerk. A solid well balanced IPA with a touch of hop bitterness but a lot of malt back bone and sweetness. It reminds me a lot of an orange jolly rancher. Hint of citrus flavor is preceeded by a smothering hop nose and sugar notes. Finish is smooth and slightly bitter.

Flaske: Gulorange let diset øl med et stort skumhoved. Duft af jordbær og let citrus. Smagen er let sprittet men stadig godt humlet. Meget velfungerende øl.

Bomber from Bevmo. Medium amber in color. Sweet nose of citric hoppiness. Thick mouthfeel. Fairly sweet with a big hop bite. Big and syrupy. Grapefruit dominates. Alcohol is well hidden. Pretty tasty with a good mouthfeel.
