Very predictable double. Decent fruit noise with a hop palate. It had a sweet flavor and dry finish. There was citrus fruits with ís but if a resin mouthfeel.

On tap at 2014 GTMW, pours a hazy orange with a thin head, the aroma has quite a bit of citrus fruit and tropical fruit and the flavor is much of the same, pretty nice citrus front end, has kind of a thick mouthfeel though, not bad.

12 ounce bottle shared by jackl. Pours a hazy golden with a large foamy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of caramel, toffee, mild citrus hops. The taste is citrus, vegetal hops, caramel malt. Medium bodied, lingering sweetness, off balance.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home with Susan. Pours a dark amber/orange. Large off-white head. Aroma is strong citrus - mostly grapefruit, and lots of sweet malt/toffee. Flavor is very bitter citrus - biting into a grapefruit rind, and lots of malt. Didnít seem smooth and balanced, though. Bitterness was too high for the flavors. Drinkable, but didnít really enjoy it.

Bottle @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. Orange pour with a white head. Light haziness. Aroma has some decent orange peel and pine to it, but lots of caramel malt and bread. Some floral and grapefruit notes, too. Flavor is too sweet for me. Lots of orange and caramel. Toasted bread, some grapefruit, and a light pine and grass bitterness.
