mansquito (3513) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2012
New Beer Distributors, NY 500ml ($7.50): Pours a very pretty orange with an excellent, well-formed, white head. Aroma is floral and citrusy. It is up there with the best IPA aroma’s I have ever sniffed. While this beer is far from hop slaughter, the hops are pronounced and diverse in this beer. The bitterness is mostly around the middle, but they linger nicely for a bit. Body is really light. Maltiness is pretty light. The aroma is the high point of this beer, but everything else is commendable. Even the burps taste good.

Clownoisseur (247) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Pours a vibrant gold color, one finger white head that leaves spotty lacing. Aromas are dank! In your face pine, subtle mango and a rounded lemon peel scent. Taste is just as bold. Lots of pine upfront. Earthy. Nice smooth tropical fruit waves across the middle with a medium bodied malt sweetness...and then finishes with a nice moderate bitterness and citrus hop hop notes. Great stuff!

Hazy orange pour with a single finger head. Lots of lace. Bright citrus and hop resin on the nose. Medium mouth. Caramel at first, then grapefruit, resin, pine. Very tasty.

jercraigs (8006) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2014
2014-11-09. Lightly hazy orange body, large foamy off-white head and nice lace. 4+ Aroma is relatively mild, lightly dusty malt, citrus oil, light orange character. Flavour is moderately bitter throughout, moderate orange citrus, hint of tangerine, lingering minerality in the finish and aftertaste. Decent. Smooth average bodied palate, moderate soft carbonation. Bottle via trade with Duffman.<>BR>
My 8000th rating at the time of entry! 7/4/7/3/15-16

jonnyguns (1044) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle from Birreria, Eataly NYC. Pours a golden orange with a firm white head. Had this after the pale and my god the pale kills this. Nice pine and citrus notes on the nose. But the taste is almost lacking that hop punch the american pale delivers. Still a good drop but not as good as I thought.

Finally getting to check this one off the list as well. These guys are making great ipas, all day. 10 on the aroma. So pungent and juicy, grassy, and herbal. Little bit of tangerine peel in there as well. Falvor is a little more bitter, citrus lemon. Finish is a bit metallic, aggressive. Nice round out of flavors and aromas giving you a full hop bomb experience. Decent body backing everything up as well. Just damn.

Bottle - Big thanks to Luke for this lovely beer - Oranges, tangerines, grapefruit, limes, and lemons in the nose. The taste is piney, grapefruit, and rips the enamel off my teeth. Overall, it doesn’t get much better than this. Cheers!!!

Bottle served in snifter. Crystal clear light orange body with a nice head that stays surprisingly long. Intricate balance of piney and ctirusy notes in the nose, with a slight advantage to the tropical fruit. Light on the tongue, with strong pine coming forth. Malt kicks in about halfway through this memorable journey to smooth out the ride. A more bitter taste is left on the tongue, which is also begging for more.

eduardovl (925) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
500ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Pours a slightly hazy orange color forming a huge white bubbled and soapy head. Good retention and tons of lacings left in the glass S: Strong notes of flowery, fruity and piny hops. Mango and passion fruit, mainly. Pale malts T: Intense hops bitterness. Very fruity, piny and citruses. In overall, a dry taste with strong notes of flowery hops. Despite the strong bitterness, its s very smooth beer. Very pleasant and drinkable M: Medium and smooth body. Good carbonation. Great hoppy and flowery aftertaste O: Excellent drinkability. An American classic [ BA Review @ 7/4/2013 ]

On tap at Lui Lui’s in Lebanon. This is pretty solid. Looks like a pale ale. Smells stronger - almost like a double IPA. Lots of citrusy notes. Taste is very very mild compared to the smell. I like it a lot though.

http://imgur.com/6k1taSn - Tap at the source. Pours clear orange with a thin white head that lasts and laces. Smells of pine, biscuit, tropical citrus, and caramel. Drinks with a moderate hop bite and moderate lingering bitterness. Medium to full bodied. Tastes of pine, resin, bright citrus, and floral notes. Lively on the palate. Finishes with lingering floral notes. Balanced.
