pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - JUL 8, 2013
On draught at Paragon. Amber golden color. Spicy, hoppy aroma with malted notes. Sweet malt flavor with a good non-bitter hop profile that blends well. Finishes quite smooth.

Bulk_Carrier (3347) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - APR 28, 2016
This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a thin one finger white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Bubbly to foamy white lacing glosses nicely around the glass in a messy sort of way. The smell started off with subtle sweet to bitter citrus pulp and rind over top of a nice caramel backbone. The taste balanced nicely between the sweetness of the malt to the sweetness to the hops and then the bitterness of the citrus fits in for a nice overall balance. Semi-dry citrus to malt aftertaste. Dry sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. Semi-dry citrus/piney - bitterness hitting my tongue - not too harsh. Overall, I wanna say a heavier version of Zombie Dust, slightly...definitely not as smooth as ZD, but I would have this again.

Can (AbM, canned 17.07.2015)
Slightly hazy amber color, small white head. Fruity orange jam, mango aroma. Light-bodied. Pale malty, tropical fruity flavor (mango, pineapple and citrus). Easy pale ale, goes with food. Some bready notes as it is not very fresh can.

olio (8727) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 25, 2016
355 ml can. Canned 17.07.2015.
Pours clear golden color with a large white head. Juicy fruits and resin on the nose, mellow hops and pine. Resinous hops on the flavor, sweet orange and mango notes, slight malty bitterness. This was surprisingly old sadly, no cardboard notes or anything like that, just lost the hop edge it probably had. Quite juicy now.

Brenhophead (681) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 15, 2016
1oz Can (canned 17.7.15), pours a soft honey hue with a small white head. Aroma is subdued but probably due to its age, some piney grapefruit and yeast esters. More grapefruit in the flavour with a prominent caramel/toffee malt.

IndianaRed (3430) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 12, 2016
Can Amber pour rather dark for a pale full dense off white head. Slight toast malt aroma and flavors. Lots of piney resinous hop flavors. Robust and big for the style.

adnielsen (10367) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2016
On tap @ brewpub during RateBeer weekend, January 2016. Slightly hazy, golden-orange appearance with a white head. Sweet toasted malt, orange citrus, rye, and a bit of spiciness in the nose. Twangy, pine, spicy, caramel flavor. Moderate high bitterness and moderate low sweetness. Bleh.

brokensail (15203) - San Leandro, California, USA - FEB 26, 2016
On tap @ Marin. Golden orange colored beer with a soapy white head. Strong popcorn and cracker malt profile to it, which immediately puts me off. There’s a good bit of floral hop character, some grass, and moderate citrus. Some pine aroma and flavor, along with the associated bitterness. Kind of a sweet, grainy finish, though.

77ships (6974) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 25, 2016
Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Hazy orange, off-white. Nose is herbal, moldy & milky base. Taste is weird milky, herbal, plaster dough, milky, herbal. Milky & plaster. Bad keg maybe? Not good.

Leighton (17225) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2016
Draft at Marin Brewing Company. Pours clear, deep gold with a creamy, white head. The nose has some floral hops, crackery pale malts, pine, citrus. Light sweet flavour with lightly toasted pale malts, flowers, pine needles, faint caramel. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. A little piney on the finish, with further floral hops, light perfume, pale bread. So so.
