Dark carrot orange. Massive head of pure white. Cloudy, with the odd bubble floating up every so often. Looks very inviting; what more can you ask for? Lots of yeast whirls around after the final pour. First aroma is bubblegum, then sweet candi sugars. Blunted slightly by a toasted quality, with a dirty, earthy finish (which salvages it, actually). The flavors are a unique sugary flavor: A flavor I donít think Iíve ever had before: itís got the rounded toffee sweetness of a bock, crossed with the bubblegum and cotton candy sugars of some kind of a liquified sugar drink. Again, potting soil earthiness shows up toward the end. The hop balance isnít really a balance at all: itís a pungent, pine-oil hop that actually doubles down on the sweetness and makes it a true challenge. The feel is chunky, chewy. Somewhere between a bock and a cherry liqueur. The issue is that itís so sweet, AND they put it in a can, so you canít even just pour half a bottle, cork it, and finish the rest. Itís almost troubling how sweet this is. I donít actually hate it, I just never want to drink another 12 oz at once.

DocJitsu (721) - Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Amber color with a short, creamy, smooth tan head with a greenish hue. Tons of vegetable matter floaties. Malty nose with hints of hop. Smooth, puffy mouthfeel. Malt-forward with hop bitterness arriving late.

Can. Very nice visual pour for style ... richly orange-red, with a big solid head. The aroma is sweet and malty. This drinks with a definite sweet edge up front, sweet as table sugar. But then thereís an interesting blend of stuff behind that, from a cloying spicy edge to an almost blood-orange acidity. Fairly light bodied, which makes it more drinkable. (#5467, 3/18/2014)

good malt and better hop flavor of pine and grapefruit that is sweet with a lemonade tang and a totally appropriate finish in hop. malt wafts in with body . longer finish bitter and nicely sweet.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 8, 2008
Split Thy Vintage Skull. Pours pretty flat, no carbonation at all. Aroma is iced tea. Flavor is peach and orange, along with the previously mentioned iced tea. Dusty dry with a nice hoppiness.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JAN 3, 2008
Tap @ Barcade. Was told this was vintage 2005. Poured a very hazy amber color with a thin off-white head. The aroma was of aged malt and aged fruit with a mild tartness. The flavor was the same as the aroma but fuller. Mildly bitter finish with good warmth and a medium body.

puzzl (3235) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 22, 2007
Tap at Barcade. Dank, light hop aroma with good spices and a bit of licorice. Odd fruity flavor, like unripe fruits. Slightly sour, perhaps infected. Donít think this was what they were intending. Still is decent and enjoyable, though.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2006
Tap at Hop Devil Grill. Deep amber beer, thick white head. Aroma is both earthy and peachy with light spicy hops as well. A bit of appley fruity character throughout along with a lasting peachiness as well. Earthy flavour with some toasty maltiness throughout. Resiny hoppyness with a lingering bitter finish.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2006
Pours an amber orange, murky, with a nice head. Firm, but light malt, which gives off a rounded underlying sweetness. Has a later hoppy dry finish (touch of citrus). Balanced, not bad, nothing great.

@ Sunset Grille 4/2706. Ok nose, Fig, wet leaves, cardboard, toffee. Cloudy orange brown color, small head, no lacing. Bitter flavor. Musty. Like aroma. Little of a peach/ apricot. Medium body, smooth creamy mouthfeel, bitter gf finish. ABV showed up here. I just didnít dig it.
