Bottle at home. Pours mostly clear orange with a medium, frothy off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is fragrant floral, fruity and citrus hops, pear esters and honey malt. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, light malt and esters, some alcohol notes and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Huhzubendah (2522) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Golden with a mild haze and a quarter inch of soapy, off-white head. Floral hop aroma with underlying biscuit aroma and an odd, fruity sweetness. Hops and cleaning solution. Spritzy carbonation. Eh...

Smooth IPA, nothing over powering or to bitter. Has a nice golden appearance and a crisp taste. I would recommend this beer.

ineedbeer (736) - Oakland, California, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Poured from a 12 oz bottle dated 06/24/2014. Aroma is very citrus hop forward with lots of orange, tangerine and mandarin notes. Lighter grapefruit, stone fruit and tropical fruit. Light cracker malt background with some hints of caramel. Pours a clear, golden orange with a moderately sized, fairly thick, slightly off-white head that steadily falls into itself as it recedes. Medium lacing and small legs. Flavor has a light sweetness upfront with some light cracker and biscuit notes with faint caramel. Moderately high bitterness with moderately strong hop flavor. Some light alcohol spice in the finish. Hop flavor is again, very orange citrus forward with lighter notes of other citrus. Some light tropical fruit notes with medium light resin in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a better beer than I remember from Speakeasy. The orange hop notes actually work with the slightly maltier body.
