boxofrane (1887) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Draft at lucky lab. Pours crystal clear orange with a small white head. The aroma is citrus forward with a big orange and grapefruit. There is some pine in the mix as well. The taste is light bitter, grass, grain. A little watery but session able.

hfmejias (618) - Dover, Delaware, USA - AUG 20, 2013
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, golden, with a nice foamy white head, not a lot of lacing on the glass. Aroma is pine/citrus hops but not to strong; there are also some fruit and malt notes. Taste is a bit watery, not what you will expect from nose; hoppy, fruity and with some yeast notes in there too. Overall a nice beer, enjoyable and easy to drink.

Elwood (2960) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a nice gold color with a frothy white head. The nose has a slight fruity and tropical note leaning more towards the malty biscuit side. The flavor isn’t as aggressive as the nose and that’s not a good thing. The hops are forward with a nice bit of fruitiness, but not as prominent as I hoped. A bit of earthiness and biscuit round things out. A little thin on the tongue. Okay.

BrettTaylor (396) - Radford, Virginia, USA - AUG 12, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2014 Poured as a 2 oz sampler at Virginia Beer Live 2013. Okay drinking but had a strange gingerbread finish? 2nd try at Blacksburg Taphouse. Previous taste prob flawed from festival palate death. Pours a light gold color, light head, but lotta lacing. Lots of citrus on nose and palate, malt sweetness underneath, well-balanced and crisp finish.

MadRobin (1703) - Silver Spring, USA - AUG 8, 2013
On tap 5 oz. sample at The Bistro in Old Line Wine in Beltsville, MD. Clear, golden-amber with an off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine resin, musty detritus, peach and caramel. Taste of pine resin, citrus, musty detritus, peach and caramel. Quite bitter tasting for an IBU of 26. Medium body and medium carbonization. The mustiness is a bit too much for this otherwise enjoyable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kinz (3189) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Deep gold, not amber :). Aroma is grapefruit, pine, peach. Flavor is lighter, some earthy hops, light malts and high bitterness. Wish flavor matched aroma, but not bad.

Tap @ Volleyball shared with Kinz. Smells like peach gummy fruit and grapefruit. Nice white head on orange golden body. Lightly hoppy and a little dewy. A little dank.
