Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours light amber with a white head. Aroma is fruity and citrus. Med body. Flavor is fruity and suddenly that citrus that is almost like pine. Lots and lots of hop. It’s a bit sweet, but there’s enough hop to solve that. Extremely tasty.

LtDan (1785) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Appearance: Pours a clear deep bronze with a thin film of white.

Aroma: Obnoxious levels of dank. Tangerine, orange, grapefruit, sweet blonde sugary malt. A little alcohol.

Taste: Grapefruit and piny bitterness. Orange pith. Relatively dry malt profile. Delicious.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied mostest carbonation.

Overall: This was similar but different to Simtra. Not as dry or bitter as Simtra for sure. A wonderful hoppy sipper.

RedSox2004 (1214) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Golden orange with a one-finger off-white head and moderate lace. Crisp citrus aroma, little in terms of a malt presence. Hoppy citrus flavors, offset to some extent bya bready malt sweetness. Full body, heavy on the palate, and a clean finish.

On tap at Beer Rev. It pours a semi clear light gold with a tall white head. The aroma is on point with intense citrus, sharp pine and spicy hops. A little mango. The flavor is super spicy hops with more fresh citrus and very mild honey. The finish is bitter and spicy. Strong alcohol, but the freshness and intensity of the hop character matches it well. I don’t usually go for these massive IIPA’s anymore, but this one was tasty.

Bottle via trade. Aroma is piney and a lot of citrus. Overall ok but has a touch of boost.

DrewFace (732) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle share thanks to Homer321. Mostly clear, orange-amber color, aroma is hoppy, danky, piney, malty. Very malty, semisweet, hoppy - danky, piney, decent bitterness in the finish.

Dogbrick (7659) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Clear pale amber color with a medium ivory white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Full-bodied with a resiny hops character and flavors of grapefruit and grainy malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering piney hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Reddish orange in color with foamy white head... Aroma of sticky caramel malts, citrus and spicy hops... Flavor of spicy hops, creamy mouthfeel, caramel malts... Lots of spicy hops on palate... Can tell the Amarillo is big in this... Decent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Red. Sweet and delicious. Light as hell for the style. Light malts give way to super hop bitterness. Awesome ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
