arminjewell (5717) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, dark reddish orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of oak, lemon, lots of orange, caramel, and toffee, hints of earth, slight spice and grass. Taste is a mix of earth, caramel, mixing into toffee, slight biscuit, hints of oak, caramel, orange in the end, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter. Not bad.

Draft at Big Beers and barley wines. Pours a clear amber /copper color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel malt, orange citrus, resin, very mild spices, with a moderate bitterness. Not much of the wood character. Worth trying once.

dmac (3754) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 31, 2013
22oz bobmer from Spirits Crossroads. Poured a clear deep honey amber/brown body with an average sized frothy off white head. Aroma of dry toast, rotting orange, dry maple syrup, touch of dried out brown sugar. Palate is full with rather strong carbonation and an odd not too pleasant aftertaste. Flavor of soap, rotting citrus, earth. BLAH.

travita (3704) - Frisco, Texas, USA - OCT 21, 2013
The look is amber in color, off white head, and a clear look. The smell is fruits, hops, grass, resin, and caramel. The taste is hoppy, good bitterness, fruit, hops, and grassy.

Butters (3685) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Bomber pours a bright clear reddish copper with good sudsy tan head. Aroma is a great íredí foresty hop profile. Flavor is agressively hopped as well. Caramel tries to add balance, but it leans heavily to the citrusy/piney//orange zesty hops. Really didnít care for it that much. Very cool idea for a beer, but execution? not so much.

ben4321 (3563) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 10/18/13

Aroma: The nose is citrus fruit (orange/grapefruit), lightly toasted malts, and a little caramel
Appearance: It pours a clear copper color with a small beige head and some sticky lace
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet, a little toasty, with some medium hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, it has a decent mouthfeel, and a clean, slightly dry finish
Overall Impression: Beer with a cause is good with me. This one is okay, but it isnít anything special. Itís certainly drinkable, but it probably isnít so memorable. Hey, at least it is for a good cause.

wlajwl (3551) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Aroma is citrus, sweetish malts/syrup and a hint of tea. The flavor is citrus, syrup notes/thickness, citrus zest, malts and a dry/bitter and slightly off finish. Goes to a great cause, unfortunately knew from the aroma that it was going to be middle of the road.

kidmartinek (3307) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Clear amber with a decaying white head. Aroma is hop wax and earth, which leads to a more dense body. Lots if floral bitterness. An extremely early IPA sk like dirt if you eat/drink this one.
