Ratman197 (10820) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 25, 2015
On tap at Hops and Pie poured a clear orange amber with small lasting amber head. Aromas of bread, grapefrut, pine, light peach and light tropical fruit. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, grapefruit, light pine and light tropical fruit with a smooth dry lingering bitter finish.

jjgmd (1635) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - APR 25, 2015
With Audie at Brass Tap, Coral Springs, pours a rusty orange color with no head. Nose is intense deep tropical citrus with a big nose of pineapple and grapefruit. Taste is bitter with hard pine and resin. Finish is bitter, moderately long and ends on the bitter citrus pine resinous notes. Nice ! Quaff Score 8 / 10

S_Side_Smitty (569) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - APR 25, 2015
Pours amber with a huge off white head. Aroma is extremely ripe red grapefruit & passion fruit with a slight spice component! Taste is red grapefruit, tangerine rind and bitterness! AWESOME! The bitterness is insidious. It creeps in boldly and steadily like old age. AWESOME! I remember when Hopslam was as good as this. P.S. Rechecked my old Hopslam score. This one scores higher. Hmmm.

jandd1983 (3050) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 25, 2015
On tap at Flying Saucer St. Louis. It poured a hazy copper color with a white head. The aroma was of tropical fruits, like oranges and grapefruits. The taste was of pine, more orange and grapefruit with a nice bitter finish. Very nice.

DocLock (8376) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2015
Draft at Whole Foods PM. Pours hazy dark straw with white head. Nose is intense resiny hops, honeydew, pineapple. Tastes well balanced, with extremely well hidden alcohol, juicy hops, melon, citrus, and a crisp, velvety finish. Bravo!

PartyFowle (450) - - APR 24, 2015
Draft. Tennessee orange with moderate haze and a fluffy head of light tan. The aroma, as you’d expect from a beer of this ... pedigree ... is dank, packed with resinous hop and weed notes along with a little wet soil and guava. The flavor displays a similar balance of the tropical and the reefer. I get sweet guava and papaya met with sticky alcohol and caramelized orange slices before a citrus-peel finish. The body is thick and weighty as heavy cream, the bubbles struggling to break through the muck to gently pinch the tongue. You don’t drink this -- you chew it. Dense, resinous and dank.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
NikkTwist (1908) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2015
Draft at Moriartys. Tulip. Hazy medium orange-copper pour with soft off-white foam. Lace. Earthy spicy caramel flavors. Bright brown amber fruit. Apricot pits. Golden raisins. Donut peaches. Tangerine peels. Dried leaves. Pine needles. Spring onions. Red peppers. High hops. Big alcoholic bite in the middle. Overly sweet toffee malts make a valiant attempt to counter the hops but instead seem to add one more hill to climb. Feels more like a whiskey. Not an easy beer - but who needs that? Try it if you want something challenging.

Barreras (1175) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - APR 24, 2015
Pours a clean copper color with a grassy alcohol aroma. Upfront alcohol burn in the taste lending itself to a grassy, minor sweet molasses flavor. The alcohol content burns after, but in a good way. Overall a smooth beer with an alcohol and hops bite.

Maxbier (637) - Maryland, USA - APR 24, 2015
Copper with white head. Grassy pine aroma. Yes 11% and still grassy. A lot like smells like freedom (DC Brau). Onion grass pine medium malt. Delicious.

TheHOFF43 (1771) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - APR 24, 2015
Tap at Mackenzies. Wasn’t sure what style it was when I ordered, was listed as a "special ale". Pour is identical to the picture on the page. That is a better description than I can give. Nice fruity hops, orange and grapefruit and all of those. Solid but unspectacular.
