Transfer from BA review on 12-13-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours an orange amber color with the lightest bit of haze. Upon pouring there is a nice two finger head of thick white foam. The head has a wonderful level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave tons of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is big of tropical fruits and a good deal of hoppiness. The tropical fruits are heaviest of tangerine but also contain notes of mango, papaya and pineapple. The hop smells that are there are a mix of a grapefruit and floral smell with some light herbal and grassy notes. A bready and doughy smell rounds out the aroma, mixing with the rest to create a sweet and tasty hopped aroma. Taste – The taste begins much drier then the nose would have suggested with a moderately big dose of a cracker and biscuit malt taste as well as some earthy and grassy hop flavors. A small amount of caramel and fruit sweetness is present upfront with it fading relatively rapidly. While this occurs the hop flavors grow more intense in nature and are joined by some new coming hop flavors of a floral and grapefruit nature. With the loss of much of the sweet and the advent of even more hop, one is left with a somewhat unbalanced, drier, malty and fairly hoppy (mainly earthy and grassy) flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side as well. Both are decent for the style and keep it a rather easy drinking brew even in lack of its balanced taste. Overall –Ah, nothing too fantastic here in my opinion. It was worth a try but is a bit too dry and unbalanced for me.

Au nez, on sent le cote résineux du houblon et une belle odeur de malt. En bouche, le mélange d'amertume et de malt se mêle et se termine par un léger goût d'alcool. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep orange pour, big foamy off-white head. Huge spicy pine aroma, notes of orange and tangerine. Aroma is big pine flavor, with orange notes, and an unpleasant bubble-gum sweet finish, marring an otherwise great brew.
