4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Toronado: Aroma had scents of fresh hops and spicy yeast while the beer appeared as a bold gold color topped by a thin layer of film head. The flavor stings of hops and pine plus additional citrus notes. Also, allows for malt in a sweet syrup and sugar profile. Finishes metallic with strong grapefruit and orange like tastes.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2014 Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 Beers this beer poured a murky apricot color with a medium sized creamy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was very strong sweet peach, apricot, orange and fruit cocktail. The flavor was very strong peach, apricot, pineapple, orange and fruit cocktail. Turns a bit dry and harsh then follows with a long finish of peach, apricot, pineapple and fruit cocktail. Thick and full bodied. Outstanding!

Draft. Yellow pour with white head. Light lager tones. Ginger Randall doesn’t really effect flavor, had each in comparison.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at MKE Public Market. Pours light gold with a small white head. Aroma is predominately citrus hops. Flavor is similar, and probably somewhat overbittered, however, I think that is probably the point of the beer. It’s a good version of an IPL.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I thought I have already tried this, but Im finally rating it. Pours a semi cloudy golden color, with an off white head. Citrus, grassy, piney hops, doughy bread, and some sweetness. A simple, drinkable beer. Good thirst quencher.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the taproom. A clear golden beer with a small off-white head. Mostly piney aroma, not much else escaping the glass. Bitter flavor with little less to be detected. Dry, medium body, soft carbonation. Long bitter finish. Too one dimensional, sure nice anyway. 130811
