For those mornings when you have to cut right to the chase, this is the one. Sure to blast through just about anything still lingering from the night before, this mouthful of Hops and huge rich Malt has a gaurantee built right into the name!

22oz bottle poured into tulip glass. Caramel color with a fluffy white head. Very floral, hoppy...great stuff. This is my "go to" beer when I can find it.

Sarlacc83 (1014) - Oregon, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle from World Market. A: Clearish caramel color with a whispy off-white head. Lacing. N: Pine, onion powder, grass, toffee, cracker, herbs, and Mary Jane. Hint of citrus - grapefruit. T: Hearty helpings of bitterness and sweetness. M: Medium body with prickly carbonation. Alcohol remains anonymous. O: I have never really appreciated the onion flavor of this one. Still don’t, unfortunately. Lagunitas Sucks is soooo much better.

The_Osprey (2156) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2014
Keg at Euston Tap (18/12/14). Hazy dark orange, still, small foamy white head, full lacing. Aroma is tangerine orange, resin, floral. Body is medium, slightly foamy, some carbonation. Taste is toffee, drying and floral, vague butter, lemon, musty and light sour, very soft bitterness. This one was let down a lot by being overly resinous, which made it very slow drinking. It took me ages to finish a half. Not as drinkable as others in the style.

mR_fr0g (4158) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2014
Clear golden orange coloured pour with a steadfast off white head. Aroma is composed of tasty light caramel rounded malt. Light grassy and burnt I range peel. Uber tasty. Maybe q little sweet. Sticky off white head. Palate is semi sweet, with a lasting sticky off white head. Flavour is a little caramel and toffeee malts with a little spicy Hoo. I could drink a pint of this.

Blonde orangé. Nez: carotte cuite. Houblon. Résine/gomme sapin. Florale. Épicé. Bouche: bonne amertume. Caramel sans être sucré. Gomme à sapin. Agrume. Finale sèche avec un peu de sucre résiduel. Très bien.

Nocturne (912) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2014
Keg at Euston Tap, London. Slight hazy light orange shade. Thin white cap. To me this tastes almost like the archetypal DIPA in my mind, with the powerful bitterness of grapefruit hops deployed over a bed of caramel malt, but very balanced and drinkable for the strength. Good stuff.
