COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with lots of Golden Promise and Pale Ale malts with a touch of Oats and light hazy gold in color. Ultra crisp bitterness from Warrior hops, with Glacier hops adding the peach,orange and apricot aroma. We dry-hopped this one because...we like hops.

16 oz can. Pours a golden/orange color with a white head that settles down to a slight ring with nice lacing. Nose is fruity and sweet with a bit of mango scent to it. Starts like it will be very bitter but that gives way to a wave of citrus flavor. Almost like a big breakfast beer. :) Imagine a two part beer, first part: ESB and second part: orange drink. if that makes sense. Leaves a slight aftertaste that lingers on the top of the tongue and back of the throat. Very clean beer thatís easy to drink. Another success.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - JUN 26, 2008
Poured from a 16oz can and served in an English pint glass. This beer poured a slightly hazy golden amber with a thin head of tight, beige bubbles. A small amount of spotty lacing was left around the glass. The aroma of the beer was made up of pine, oranges, light caramel, and some bready malt. The flavor included a crisp citric bitterness with a faint amount of bread dough. The mouthfeel was light to medium-bodied with moderate carbonaton. A decent session beer, but I guess I was hoping for more.

Pours a nice copperish orange.The nose has is peachy, & a bit tart. Comes across the palate very clean with apricot, & citrus fruits. Finishes with a subtle hop taste that lingers.

A tart and peachy aroma with a slightly bitter, hoppy note. Body is a stunningly cloudy orange with a frothy white head. Overall flavor, while predominantly hops and malt is quite light and refreshing - iced tea, cinnamon, and oatmeal- ending with a brief and amusing note of ginger. Obviously a great sipping beer, I think it would be particularly well-suited with vinegary Kansas City-style BBQ.

Can. Pours a gorgeous orange-hued copper with a fair off-white head. Aroma is sweet, with a strong hoppy scent of apricot and citrus along with a bit of maltiness. Body is fairly light but malty, with a soft fruity flavor of apricot, citrus, and floral notes giving way to a tart, crisp finish not unlike strong tea. As refreshing as a good bitter should be, but a bit more complex as well.

Trev (1962) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 20, 2008
pours a nice orange copper with a medium off white head. Aroma is toasty malt, a little oatmeal, plenty of orange citrus hop. Flavour is light fruity/ orange hop with a medium malt body and a soft mouthfeel that fits with the traditional bitter style. I can also get the black tea bitterness in the finish. Very nice.

On tap at the Hop Leaf in Chicago. The aroma was fall leaves with some caramel. There was also a definite black tea note. The taste was bitter with some black tea. There was also some apple core along with a woody finish. This was ok, but I wanted a little more malt balance.

Can. Pours absolutely gorgeous, stunning orange color with a nice soapy bright white head. Perfect appearance. There are a couple granules of something floating around in there. I donít think itís yeast but itís interesting anyways. Wonderful soft citrus hop aroma. Soft is the word that keeps coming to my head. Very nice smell of mango and some peach with a definite toasty maltiness underneath. I can usually tell what kind of hops are used but this is confusing me. Amarillo maybe? (Note: This review was written before I read the description and found out it is Glacier). Taste is super smooth with a perfect level of carbonation. Almost a cask ale type mouthfeel. Very nice balance between the citrus hops and the toasted malt character. Super drinkable. This beer is phenominal. What I would give to have constant access to this.

RateBeer is amazingly consistent for most beers for me. I try this beer, made from a famous brewer like Surly. I think it is mediocre (for the beers I try), but I expect that when I see the actual rating it will much higher than my rating, because of the fame of the brewer. But, that is not the case. Everyone seems to think this beer is the same quality as I think, despite the connection to a great beer such as Darkness. Smells like oranges. Orange color. Mild bitternes. Leans dry. Nice
