COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full bodied, orange hued ale. A variety of toasted and caramel malts create a nice backdrop to the aggressive citrus and floral hop notes.

Draft. From notes. Grass and grains, slightly earthy hops. Slightly bitter taste. Meh, it’s ok.

tmoreau (2380) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2013
12 oz. beer refrig. bottle carefully poured to a Czech-pils glass, but still produced an overly abundant amount of cream colored, meringue-like head foam on top of a hazed, orangy gold hued liquid, with a good deal of rising effervescence to the modest amount of beer that was exposed, and lasting, patchy lacing. The nose was lemony & grapefruity, some sweetness, and a touch of pine. The flavor was a decent earthy, rindy, and lingering hop bitterness, but was otherwise very sweet to the taste. Light bodied, with any good effervescence wasted on the head, as the carbonation seemed to flatten out, leaving the texture a little thin on the palate. Alcohol influence was negligible. The aroma was promising, but the appearance and taste were more in line with many homebrew/extract recipes that I’ve sampled.

cbfobes (2289) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a dark copper/amber with a nice white head and lacing through out the glass, aroma has a decent citrus and hop touches to it, the flavor has a little sweeter than I’m used to for an IPA but it still works, nice smooth finish, decent.

TheHOFF43 (1749) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Can. Pour is a hazy golden with foamy white head. Aroma is weak hops, flavor is even weaker, kind of stale hops. Really nothing special.

ThirstyBird (1542) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - AUG 2, 2014
Pours a hazy amber color with a tan head. The smell is apple, caramel, vegetal, resin. The taste is pine, caramel, apple, fruit grapefruit ending dry and bitter. Light/medium in body with average carbonation. Fairly sweet and malty.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2012
12v oz bottle. Pours deep golden with a small white head. Aroma is sweet fruity hops. a bit citric and a strong caramel malt sweetness. Flavor is much the same, though the caramel sweetness is even stronger. Still some sweet citric hoppiness and a lightly bitter finish. Medium body and a sharp carbonation.

arkurzynski (1503) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Deep orange pour with off-white head. Nose is sweet caramel and vegetal pine hops. Sweet caramel malt upfront, lightly toasted, with more vegetal and somewhat minty hops. A little slick and heavy on the palate. Pretty gross.

kbutler1 (1350) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Draft. Pours a copper orange color with a light tan head. Slight hop aroma but nothing extreme. Medium mouthfeel. Caramel seed upfront with a hoppy presence in the end. Hoops don’t "bite" but rather are a slow build in the end. It’s ok, nothing special. Some lace. A bit soap flavor.
