Bottle. Clear dark gold, white head. Candied citrus aroma. The taste adds apricot and star fruit. Malt balance. Very smooth and juicy, no bite or bitterness. Awesome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kkleu357 (561) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 13, 2015
On tap at Mission Pizza. Nice light golden body. Slight citrus aroma. Flavor seems much more resiny than fruity. Not as much of that citra flavor I’m used to from a beer using the citra hop, but still a darn good brew.

Draft at Moriartys. Hazy orange pour with a small soft white head. Lingering thick ring. Tangerine peels. Somewhat unusual milky eggy aroma. Bitter orange citrus. Warms to dandelions, sunflowers and autumn leaves. Medium-full bitter hops. Interesting, but feels incomplete.

Bacterial (2201) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Draft at Barrelhouse 101 in Ventura, CA. Massive citrus nose on this one - could smell it from across the table! Amber pour with a white head. Taste was good, but not the same kind of sensation that the nose had.
