2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear red with a minimal white head. Aroma consists of pine, spice, oranges, and some melon impressions. Melon and some spicy yeasty flavors dominate the taste. Lemon and orange are in here as well. Aftertaste is floral and slightly fruity. This is light in body with a thin mouthful. Watery actually. Some hints of carbonation are involved. I don’t think that this is anything very special to be honest. It really doesn’t agree with me.

3/1/2013. Pours green with a thin white head. Aroma is pine, citrus, spice, Belgian yeast. Taste is spice, Belgian yeast, nice fruity characteristics, bitter hops. Some nice lacing. Pretty flavorful. Worth a try; though not one I will drink again.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark straw color with a small white head. Pretty impressive aroma, very strong citrus hops balanced with some spice and a little yeast. The spices take a little more of the stage in the flavor with the hops balanced out with some malt sweetness. The body is much lighter than I anticipated, which detracts from an otherwise good beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber. Pours a slightly hazy orangey color with a slightly off-white head excellent retention and lacing. Nose is some hops, a little dankness, with a hint of straw and Belgian yeast. Mouth is tropical fruity hops up front, then some dough and yeast, finishes rather abruptly. Good, but not great.

Can: pours clear, light copper with a small fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet citrus. Taste is citrus, pine and the underlying "Belgian yeast" flavor. Nice. Doesn't smack you in the face with either style, just meanders from a nice american pale to a Belgian pale.

Can. Nice reddish gold color. Huge white head. Floral and hop aroma. Heavy floral and clove flavor which over power the hop and pine. Nice texture.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A: Golden orange, slightly hazy almost clear, with a fizzy and foamy white head.
S: Smells great. Fantastic combination of Belgian yeast - kind of funky, slightly musty, lemon and some coriander - and hops - sweet grapefruit, mango, tangerine. Almost creates a ’bubble-gum’ sweetness, which is a terrible way of describing it because that would be horrible, but very unique.
T: Refreshing and crisp bitterness hit first with lemon and tarter-than-sweet grapefruit. Then a wash of Belgian spice, a tad bit of hay, and sweet tropical fruits. Finishes pretty dry
P: Light-medium body, noticeable but not obnoxious carbonation. Very refreshing and smooth.
O: Fantastic beer. So glad it’s in cans. Need to stock up.

poured from tap into a tulip. Pours a dark orange color with a 1" head
very good right away with great aromas of navel oranges, hops, some resin and citrus flavors. Showing the hop characteristic of this, but far from overbearing
very good medium/full feel, but lacking a slight bit on the middle and back end. Good depth with flavors of resin, pine needles, navel oranges and various citrus and creams
a really damn good belgian pale by rev. I hope they do this one more often as it is really good

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2013 Tasted from a 22oz. bottle (then later on tap at Revolution). Poured a beautifully clear, light golden orange with a white head that dissipated quickly. Good carbonation and a faint but pleasant aroma.
