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.
