Poured from a bottle. Nice citrus, pineapple, and slight pine. Orange breaking golden on the edges with a pillowy white head that laces healthy. Good amount of sweetness that turns to a nice dry and bitter quality for balance.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2016 22oz bottle poured into an IPA glass. The aroma is initially a strong herb and grass presence that fades into fruit stripe gum and other bright, sweet juicy tangerine and grapefruit notes with some mango. Late in the drink, the aroma turns to caramel as the fruit fades. It pours a brilliant amber with a slightly off-white, big foam head that has good retention and lace. The taste is a blend of Medium fruity sweet and a high, waxy bitter end with a light touch of sour. The texture is that of a heavy oil with a fuzzy carbonation and a medium full, bitter grapefruit rind and grass body with light notes of toast interspersed. The finish is crisp with a strong bitter pine and fruit crescendo that’s quick to clean leaving a fresh pine and spice along with a light bitter waxiness that lingers lightly and isn’t cloying. The aftertaste is long but light with notes of bread crust and wax.

22oz bottle. Orange red color with a white head. Very hoppy citrus aroma. Heavy body. Hops and sweet malt flavor. Well balanced but flavor doesn't match aroma.

Very sweet apricot aroma. Pours a medium orange brown, slightly hazy, lots of bubbles and good sustained head. Did not let Binny’s let this get warm. I took the cold bottle from their shelf and brought it home. Really good flavor with some really sweet aftertaste. Hops and sweetness - oh boy. No wonder the salesman was surprised they had some in stock. It was fresh off the truck, and boy is it delicious.
