Poured a dark ruby red color with an averaged sized, frothy off white head. Aromas of light oranges, pine and grapefruit. Tastes of pine, grapefruit with a trace of malts. Bitter bite.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Clear, orange ale with a large, frothy, off-white head. Excellent retention. The nose is pink grapefruit pulp floating in a vat of freshly squeezed island fruit and tangerine. Bitter as hell and fruity.The nice, solid, caramel malt backbone is only an afterthought as the lupulin clings to the back of my tongue and throat until my mouth is numb and my wind pipe is all but "cut-off." Ok, maybe I exagerrate, but the brew is really very bitter. Full-bodied and dry with lively carbonation. A hophead’s dream beer! Thanks go out to DarkElf for the bottle!
