Gold with a surprising amount of floaties, thin white head. Nose is mango, pine resin, mint, dank, alcohol. Really big. Flavor is pine, tropical fruit (mango, pineapple), strong bitterness, dank. Sweet honey malt backs it all up. Lingering bitterness with dank, mint & pineapple skin. Nice!

Pours a clear lemon yellow with frothy white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma definite pink grapefruit, yeasty bread dough and pepper. Flavor is citrusy grapefruit, mild raisin, earthy florals. Body is light with a lot of carbonation. Yummy.

Had this one At the Eastaide tavern about 3 weeks ago and have been waiting for the release of this one every day scents. I think this is one of the most floral hop bombs this brewery has put out yet. Its like hop stupids little brother with more of a grapefruit twist and much more easy drinking. Don’t get me wrong I worship the brownsugga every year but hopefully they start releasing every year also. Please

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2013 Golden color in the glass with a nice head. The aroma has a sweetness up front with honey, citrus and pleasent hops. Taste is fantastic. It has a candy like quality of caramel and citrus. There is some faint pine and malt. The finish is ultra smooth and has a great finish. Picked up 3 sixers so far and going for more.

Gold orange color with thin white head, strong citrus fruit aromas, lots of orange and hints of lemon. Taste is pretty hoppy with citrus and pine notes, slight caramel malt finish, strikes me as more of an IPA. Good beer

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tangerine, orange, citron, mint leaf in the nose. Very spicy rye bread, pepper, green onion. Sweet with a balanced base.
The appearance is pale yellow, with a big head and watery lace. A ton of carbonation.
The flavor is peppery rye malt, followed by spicy orange peel and grapefruit. Tea leaves, with a very bitter finish, but in a sweetly perfumey way.
The palate is slick, and thicker than you might think because it’s so smooth. A superior, citrusy ale with a beautiful balance. Terrific.

Bottle shared by a friend. Pours a clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma of spicy hops to the point it’s giving off some onion notes. Some malt in there as well. Malty and oniony flavor with a bit of booze and an apricot character before a grapefruit finish.
