hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Draft… Clear orange ale with a large, frothy, white head. Excellent retention. The aroma delivers tons of tropical fruit – pineapple, guava, mango and a hint of pink grapefruit. Full-bodied and fatty with tickling carbonation. The flavor provides heaps of malt and tons of juicy, citric, rindy hops – nods toward the bitter side of balance. Finishes with a lingering grapefruit rind bitterness.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - AUG 15, 2011
[On Tap] Lightly hazed golden orange appearance, decent head formation. Blend of orange juice and piney hops on the aroma. Lightly spiced palate, quite a bit of sugar and sweetness, real fruity orange and pineapple. Bitter bite in the finish but fairly mild for a DIPA. Decent flavors and depth but I expect a little more hop assertiveness for style.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Tap at Eureka. Rating #65. Hazy, darkish yellow/orange pour with a decent dirty white head. Big juicy citrus sweet aroma. Muted flavor, light bitterness, very subdued overall, but pretty good. (1823)

brokensail (9921) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 24, 2011
A: The beer pours a clear golden color with a finger of white head. S: Not terribly hoppy and quite sweet on the nose. Some bread and a fairly strong caramel malt smell to it with a bit of pine and grapefruit, some grass, too. T: The flavor is fairly sweet with lots of floral hops and a bit of grapefruit and orange. Sweet caramel malts and a touch of sugar. Just a touch of pineapple and pine bitterness. As it sits, the pineapple comes through more. M: The body is sort of light with a medium carbonation. O: I wasn’t terribly impressed by the nose, but the flavor was pretty nice.

Drake (7940) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Served on draft at Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear medium amber color with a large frothy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of earthy notes, caramel and tropical fruits. The taste is very tropical with notes of mango, pineapple and canned fruits. Pale malts as well. Medium-full bodied with lingering bitterness. OK... not my favorite.

Strykzone (4475) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2010
A 12 oz bottle hand capped and sent by Hayduke. A delicious looking ale that is opaque mid brown with a small off white head that soon becomes a ring and some independent circles. "Delicious" also describes the aroma. Rich but delicate fruit, caramel, and a bit of alcohol. A surprisingly pleasant feel that is silky smooth. Big alcohol taste but somehow it is not an offensive one. Fruit permeates every sip with nice caramel. Interestingly, in this IIPA the hops are barely noticed. That is actually a compliment to the brewer. The hops offer wonderful fruit notes that were so delicious they just melded into the beer. Just so smooth! How did they do that?! Ron, thank you so much for this beer!
