3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Muted grapefruit on the aroma. Some earthiness as well. Hazy deep orange with full white head that layers an inch and lingers. Nice lacing. Chewy yeast on the front palate collapses into a thinnish finish. The fruit is present but more of a dusty earth that is hard to place. Malt not supporting here.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2012 750 mL bottle. Poured a murky amber-orange, with a big off-white head. Great lacing and smells of mango, passionfruit, grapefruit, and light caramel. Taste is sweet tropical fruit upfront, smooth and balanced in the middle, with a moderate bitter finish. Thin mouthfeel and high carbonation. Pretty tasty pale ale, bitter, yet refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The label reminds me of Silence Of The Lambs. The beer is a hazy orange color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of citrus and tropical fruit as well as hops. Light to medium body with a sweet fruity character and notes of mild hops and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a hops and apricot aftertaste. Above average overall.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle to snifter. Looks decent; darker and more opaque than I expected though, given the bottle description. Smells intense too; the hops subdue the fruit. Tastes like an IPA. Which would be great if I wanted... an IPA. Mouthfeeel is average (at best). Overall, a bitter disappointment.
*Note: while I did not adjust the scoring (in part, because I had already been drinking), I thought the draft to bomber (same day filled) was MUCH better.
