COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Exploding with hop flavor and aroma, this citrus/piney/floral ale has enough of a malt backbone to stand up to the intense bitterness.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Bottle... Clear amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is a lupulin-laden montage of grapefruit, tangerine, guava, pineapple and mango with underpinnings of biscuit and resin. Medium to full-bodied with modest carbonation. Toffee and juicy, citrusy, resiny hops are the foundation of the medium bitter flavor. Finishes crisp and bittersweet… and the bitterness lingers on and on. Bottle courtesy of phaleslu!

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2013
Fresh bottle from Capone’s. Golden bodied with lots of foamy white head. Strong citrus orange aroma. A high yet not overwhelming delivery of bitterness. Very tasty and drinkable orange with some tangerine, mint, pine. Medium mouthful. Somewhat palate erasing.
