(Draught) Pours a hazy golden orange body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of orange, caramel, light pepper, and grain. Flavor of caramel, chewable children’s vitamins, orange, other citrus, gelatin, grass, and grain.

onceblind (7526) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Hazy copper with a thin dissipating white head. Aroma was a little faint bit i got some semi-boozy caramel malty graininess with a little hint of lemongrass. Flavor was quite hoppy though the bitterness was kinda restrained...or maybe not restrained but just not as bitter, or the same kind of bitter, as American IPAs. Sorta tastes überhopped and then dry hopped with that classic English and German hops varieties. Grassy flavor with a sort of semi-sweet cereal grain/caramel malty backbone. Lingering bitterness with a slight piney and resinous tone, but still very much grassy and ’noble’ hopped.

Kevin (2192) - New Mexico, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Hazed tan orange body without much head. Cotton candy and hop light pine nose. Upfront bitter with a finishing bubble gum/candy sweetness. Resin taste lingers with a bit of grass. Gets beter and more rounded as it warms.

Draft at fine street pub with dr. Moreau and Andrew. POurs a. Lear amber body with nice white lacing. Aroma is citric hop - straightforward. Mouthfeel is medium, carbonated with notes of Citric hops and nice fruits.

notalush (5732) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Tap at Vine Street - a quite dry, chalky, mineral flavored DIPA, with strong dry, citric and peppery hop notes to compliment this - crackery malt profile also works in it’s favor - a bit of sweetness on the tail end in the form of orange marmalade, but mostly dry and bitter - marginally astringent, but fairly tasty.

TAR (2692) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Draught at Mountain Sun: Yellowish gold. Dying eggshell foam forms a nonuniform fringe. Doughy yeast and husky malt (scorched hay) aromas prevail over hints of chalk/Sweet Tarts, grass, and apricot jam. Fuzzy, pointy carbonation. Brash and unruly bitterness assaults the tongue as a surge of unrefined oily resins and dried orange peels punish the palate. Severely muddled from start to finish, with a pureed apricot and pineapple cake sweetness saturating the center and obscuring the underlying spiciness. Some huskiness is very subtle, but still manages to throw some burnt wood harshness that lends a false sense of dryness which clashes with the dull bitterness. Also intensely doughy and vitamin B-like, with some lurking aspirin chalkiness, as well. Breath of sharp eucalyptus-tinged alcohol lines the finish which is jammy-sweet with overemphasis on the candied orange peels and vanilla cake maltiness. Yikes…something is serious amiss in this. Very dirty and dull with a caustic, one-dimensional and unpolished hop character. Perplexing it is how this brewery can be so hit and miss.

3fourths (9150) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 13, 2012
draft. bright hop nose, fruity, gelatin-like (chewy?) and juicy, so the Cascade and EKG make sense, and I get a faint touch of earthy spice, so the Crystal does as well, but there’s also a hint of cheese & urine, which makes me think Amarillo. so it smells pretty nice, actually, but unfortunately it’s all vitamin / chalk yeast, a bit sour and a bit rough. the English yeast is musty, chalky and woody, and the bitterness and astringency is excessive. so close.
