Bottle from Whole Foods Henderson, NV
Amber color, hazy, with generous head. The aroma is hoppy, with citrusy hints, and some earthy character too. Smooth caramel and toffee flavor, with light biscuity touch; strong bitterness, the quality hops provide a very good citrusy and resiny character. Long final.
Fresh and excellent.

Amber, hazy. Strong citra nose is unfortunately quite chewy, either from crystal malt or age (it’s a few months old) or possibly both. Taste is similar, with moderate bitterness and some toastiness, but really lacking in brightness.

brokensail (11529) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 26, 2014
On tap @ Uncle Henry’s Deli. Clear orange colored pour with a white head. Aroma is quite tropical and fruity. Lots of nice pineapple notes. Big grapefruit and orange...a hint of lemon-lime, maybe peaches. Light malt sweetness to the palate. Good pineapple, grapefruit, and orange zest flavors. Sweet peach and a mild lemon-lime soda.

bhensonb (11491) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Tap at the Rubicon. Pours clear copper. Cat piss aroma - lots of citrus. Near med body. Flavor is really hoppy citrus with some arguable floral over a mild caramel backbone. It’s very hoppy and very bitter and very very good.

Ratman197 (10192) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 17, 2012
Bomber poured a clear orange amber with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of biscuit, skunk bud, cat piss, earthiness, pine, light grapefruit, light lemon zest and light tropical fruit. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, skunk bud, earthiness, grapefruit, pine and light lemon zest with a crisp dry bitter lingering dank finish.

Theydon_Bois (9915) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle split at JF’s, 04/05/14, from the bottle barn in Santa Rosa. Clear golden orange with a mahoosive off white head. Nose is caramel malt forward, hoppy tinges, grass, orange pith, light grapefruit. Taste follows along the same lines, all about the malt, the citra hops and citrus fruits just don’t shine through. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, some hop bitterness in a sweetish close. Nah - this is a letdown, give Kernel a call and they’ll tell you how to showcase a hop/hops, to sweet and caramac.

FatPhil (9591) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 10, 2014
660ml bottle - gift from N&A - thanks!
Massively sticky caramelly aroma. Pure sugary syrup. Plenty of fruit too, but the sugar’s the most prominant feature. Mid orange, huge persistent foamy head. Sweet caramelly body, simple fruity hops too - fleshy fruits. Gentle zesty bitterness. Had this a hundred times, snore - a brew devoid of details and smothered in sugar. Later there’s some marmitey yeastiness both in the aroma and taste.

adnielsen (9449) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 18, 2012
Bottle @ Dan’s house. Clear, darkish orange appearance with an off white head. Butterscotch, light orange citrusy hoppy, a bit toasty malty aroma. Damn, this has fallen off. Buttery, bready, toasty malty, tangy, infected flavor. Too bad.
