Barwa bursztynowa, piana dość obfita i drobna. Aromat wyraźny, bardzo mocno chmielowy, głównie owoce tropikalne. W smaku na początku naprawdę dużo słodyczy, a na finiszu stopniowo pojawia się przyjemna goryczka o grejpfrutowym posmaku. Alkohol w smaku w zasadzie nie wyczuwalny, za to wyczuwalny w przełyku gdzie przyjemnie rozgrzewa. Jak dla mnie piwo naprawdę dobre.

Bottle at party. Poured clear solid dark orange with a high but short lived white head. Smells of orange, orange peel and hops. Tastes as a fairly bitter IPA. Good although not my favorite tipple

Served on tap at O’reilly’s during IPA day.

A - Pours murky golden orange with a nice pillow of one and a half finger tall white head leaving light lace down the glass.

S - Smells of dulled citric hops, lightly toasted caramel malt, pine resin, and some light citric fruit; mostly oranges. This one smelled a little stale but it was still pretty decent.

T - Starts off with a big dose of caramel malt sweetness slowly giving way to a mix of dulled citric hops, pine resin, oranges, grapefruit, and some light chewiness. The finish is a mix of light citric hop bite and dryness, lingering on the pallet for some time.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. A bit syrupy with a nice, dry, hop bite at the very end.

O - Not too bad. I think this one may be on the verge of going off a cliff. I am glad I got to try it but I won’t be running back over here for more.

It’s orange color, a bit hazy, with big and steady head and amazing lacing. Aroma is a big sweet mix of different smells. There are: orange, grapefruit, a bit of mango and other yellow fruits. You can also smell there cloves, coriander and flowers. The mouth feel is super smooth. For a moment it feels highly carbonated but it immediately goes away. It also has great bitter aftertaste. The taste itself is a bit simpler. It’s a combination of grapefruit’s bitterness and orange sweetness. Great beer!

Bottle from Philly Craft. Nice notes of Caramel malt, citrus, some bread. Very good blend of bittering hops that seem to balance out the sweetness in the finish. Very Goood.

From a 50cl bottle, pours a hazy amber with a nice cream off white head, that staid some time. Aroma is very pleasant, hops, honey, candy and yeast. Flavors of hops, red and citrus fruits, grassy and spices, pepper. Grapefruits and hints of berries are present and hints of vanilla. Nice strong bitterness, but not overdone, well balanced. Nice long lasting flavors and bitterness in mouth. Very enjoyable, and highly recommended, would drink again.
