Bottle. Murky dark orange pour with a huge, pillowy head that fades very slowly to a thick film. Leaves soapy lacing. Aroma is super sweet candied citrus and caramel. Tastes the same but also a bit stale and old. Hard to describe but I know I donít like it. Not good.

Look - Foamy amber orange. Off white head. Not too thick. Lacing is good. Bubbles are small. Smell - Orange and citrus. Faintly dank. There is a caramel and toast aroma as well. Taste - Toast. Caramel. Bitter. Faint dank hops. Bubblegum before the finish. Feel - Creamy and not too much carbonation. Really nice. Overall - I am glad I got to try this beer. It baffle me how each Floyds is distinctly different, but amazing.

Light copper hazy little head. Honey biscuit caramel. Sweet caramel oaky moderate bitter herbal hops. Semi dry finish. Good but oak may be too much for style.

DocJitsu (1180) - Florida, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Pours an extraordinarily murky orange-golden with a long lasting tan-beige head. Aroma is akin to a wee heavy with a bit of citrus. Chewy. A lot of sweet and rich caramel with citrusy overtones.

Leighton (13512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2015
Bottle shared during HamTech Reunion 2014. Thanks to the Duke, I think. Pours mostly clear gold with a foamy, white head. Pretty sweet overall, with some sugary berries, bread, mild bitterness. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet and lightly warming to finish, with more bready malts and ripening fruits. OK.

Rando7 (774) - Iowa, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle pours deep yellow with generous shaving cream type head and good lacing. Aroma malts and spicy hops. Taste sweet malts, bready, biscuit with some oak spiciness. Finish hops, somewhat bitter but really more spicy and citric. Iím not a huge hop fan but the hops were not overdone here. Thick palate.

Unique enjoyable flavor.

Cloudy golden pour. Medium sized cream head. Lacing. Malty aroma with some notes of peach. Taste is fruity with some hop aroma coming through in the mouth as well. Sweet finish.

malrubius (2034) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 2, 2014
From old tasting notes - Orangy with flat head. Slight cardboard orange aroma. Spicy sweet stale oranges. Okay.

"a unique take on an english style ipa for sure, with lots of malt, biscuity character, toasty, but with a strong bitter hop finish and toasted oak undertones. very well done. no way i thought it was 9%."
