arminjewell (6173) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of bread, orange, slight yeast, hints of slight grassy, floral notes. Taste is a mix of grass, orange, grapefruit juice, touch of grain, finishing bitter, dry. Best brew they had.

rumproasts (2879) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 9, 2014
bottle. Golden with one finger head. I don’t know where this one went wrong. I usually like the hop varieties listed on the bottle, but the flavors here are just dull. A bit boozy for the ABV. This is solidly below average in every way.

EithCubes (4885) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 21, 2014
10th rating for this brew, the make-it-or-break-it bottle. Nose of thin and lightly citric caramel, dough, earth, faint spice. Pours is overall golden, here leaning to orange, there to yellow, with a sudsy white head. Taste is strongly bitter but it’s rubbery and a little flat, though not too astringent; moderately dry with dough and caramel, light citrus and no fruit, but some smooth wood and light spice. Full, heavy body realized as a gummy brewpub offering.

BrownALEx (266) - Portland, Michigan, USA - APR 4, 2014
Poured out of a growler. Solid effort here, very nice bitter hop taste, not too over the top but bold enough to stand out. Well done.

realjb29 (27) - olean, New York, USA - DEC 30, 2013
The smell was of predominately soured bread with a nose of yeast, pine, and grapfruit. The color was was hazy straw. It poured with an extreme head indicative of a possible infection. Taste was was of soured bread, butter with hints of pine and citrus. The most infected tasting beer I have tried in a long time. I had to dump this one it was awful.

DSG (5782) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks troubles. Cloudy orange. Mild hoppy aroma of some overripe fruits and a bit of yeast. Flavor has light maltiness and bitter hoppiness, a bit citric.

wmubronco1992 (614) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle Pours a light orange color. Small white head. Cloudy with visible lacing. Big dry piney flavor. Tons of bitter but not much balance. I love a good bitter beer, but this one could use some depth to give it more balance. A bit of malt would make this a very nice beer.
