COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Copious quantities of hops and an assertive alcohol content are the foundation of our best-selling beer. Crystal malts and a blend of Yakima grown Fuggles, Centennial, Cascade, and Ahtanum hops impart a very satisfying balance. This ale is late-hopped in the hop back for added flavor and aroma.

Pours a glowing semi-unfiltered orange with a cream colored head. Smell is mostly iced tea and some metal. Taste is tart maltiness and dirty, earthy, tea and floral like hop flavor. Just don’t care for the tea flavored hops in beers and this is chock full of them. Decent body and mouthfeel, but wasn’t crazy about the beer as it was all tea.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 11, 2008
12oz bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy amber with 2 finger beige head and spotty lacing. Nose is sweet malt, ripe citrus and juniper. Taste is malt, mild orange peel and mellow resin in the finish. Medium mouth feel. Nothing extreme about this beer, just a decent drinkable IPA.

Ungstrup (29851) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2008
Draft. A hazy amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with grassy notes of hops. The flavor is sweet mlaty and again with grassy notes of hops, leading to a dry grassy finish.

sloth (2535) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUL 8, 2008
Medium sized tan head, retention is fair with some spotty, stringy lace. Lightly hazy copper hued brew with some floatys dropping out of suspension. Nose is soft with notes of caramel, light citrus and pine, somewhat leafy. Body is medium with a light prickly carbonation, lightly oily on the palate. Almost dry caramel malts, bready, slightly buttery backed up by quiet hop notes of pine and cutrus, earthy and lightly fruity. Lightly sweet malty finish with a delayed hop bite. Thanks Cliff!

On tap at Laurelwood Pizza. Pours a clear golden orange with a lacy off-white head. Medium body and light carbonation. Pine and grapefruit nose, fruit and citrus taste, semi-dry finish.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 5, 2008
12 oz. bottle from Liquid Solutions. Pours a hazy medium amber-pecan color, with a small off-white head. Toasty, biscuity and lightly caramel malts, summer fruits, florals and spicy citrus make up the aroma. Flavor of citrus fruits, toasty grains, peach and pear, floral hops, orange peel, dust and spice. Medium body, lightly tingly carbonation.

bhensonb (11534) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 11, 2008
Bottle. Primary aroma is caramel, but there seems to be citrus and pine as well. Orange tinged amber color with a white head that just flattened. Medium body with smooth, mild carbonation. Flavor is more floral hop than anything else, with caramel beneath. The finish is not truly dry, but very pleasant. Seems more like a smooth ESB than an IPA. Really tasty drink in any case.

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2008
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a small off white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, and caramel. Taste is slightly bitter from the hops and a little malty with a bit of caramel on the back of the tongue. Has a semi sweet finish. Has a decent balance of flavor. Not a bad beer at all.

12ozer from a trade a little ways back, I’m guessing with Samuraiartist though I could be wrong. I fucked up the pours so its orange with a 4 finger bubbly tan head. Nose is lemony, citrussy and piny. Taste is sweet and piney and overall pretty tastey and nicely drinkable.
