Pour on tap at Odell Small Batch Festival 2012, hazy orange with white head. Aroma brought notes of oak, pine, grass, some orange and grapefruit peel, hints of biscuit and bread, touch of earth and some zesty notes. Taste is a mix of slightly aged hops with some oak, bread and biscuit, some orange, lemon and grapefruit, touch of pine, finishing fairly bitter, slightly sweet. Pretty good.

Sample at AZwine during RBWG. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized fluffy white head. The aroma had big citrus notes favoring tangerines and perhaps clementines. Some additional earthy, woody and caramel notes were also in the nose. The flavor was heavy with the citrus hops, tangerine, caramel malts, some grassy notes, woody with more subdued bitterness. This was very good and worth having again if I get the opportunity.

On tap at the nice party at Arizona Wine. Pours a cloudy brown color with a medium white head. A rich bursting nose of fruit- marmalade for sure-, some oak. The flavor is a earthy sweet fruity concoction, vanilla, woody, not a aggressive hot seemingly more fruity than the regular IPA, easygoing. Everyone was digging this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured up on tap at the 2014 Papago Hopageddon event where it exhibits a clear copper body that has a thin gold edge and supporting an off white head that leaves behind some sheet lacing. The aroma offers up spicy oak, some malt sweetness and then thin ribbons of mild resiny to floral hops. The taste delivers some nice malt sweetened spicy oak flowing into flowery hops that have a firm pulse of resiny bitter hoppy notes. These floral and spicy oak flavors really don’t get along to well together. But all in all this is a pretty good drinking brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
@ 2012 Small Batch Fest. Kinda hazy orange copper with a thick foamy head. Aroma of fresh floral and herbal hops with a touch of dank oak...almost smells like weed. Flavor is hoppy with notes of herbal, pine, and floral hops with a gentle woody oak tone throughout. Again, kinda comes together to taste the way weed smells. But it’s not extreme. It’s nicely balanced with caramelly sweetness. But the oak and hops are just a little much.
