Bottle found at a shop in Indiana. Deep amber pour with a tight white head. Juicy clementine and marmalade-slathered brown bread. Woody forest floor, dirt-covered grass. Moderate sweet caramel. Orange blossom flavor. Delicate woody perfume. Lemon sorbet. Honeyed tea. Bear claw donut. Sweet without being overwhelming. Medium body, somewhat sticky. Quite nice.

22oz bottle poured into a teku glass. Sweet, juicy citrus and light pine come through to the nose initially. As it settles, some of the undertones of hot caramel syrup and roasted nuts become more obvious. Even later on, the aroma of sweet, overripe, dark berries (bordering on candi sugar) comes through with a touch of vanilla. It pours a clear, oily, rich caramel color with a large, sudsy, frothy orange head (kinda looks like a root beer float). Lots of cloudy head is retained throughout the drink and an abundant messy cloudy lace is left behind. The taste is a medium bitter, with a medium light malty sweet undertone. It feels chewy and thick in the mouth with a soapy slick carbonation. Overall, itís a mellow, medium body (especially for an IPA) that finishes with a dry tangerine and pine character. A mellow, pine dryness sticks around for a short time in the aftertaste.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2014 Mellow orange with few slowly-rising bubbles; one-finger head that dissipates quickly. Smells clean, floral, a little sweet, some citrus. Tastes like hops, caramel, biscuit, some vanilla, all with a big yeast presence and a huge herbal component which I enjoy sometimes and other times itís a little too strong.

Deeper, black color. Vanilla, caramel, maybe some roasted malts. Initially bitter, then more predominantly sweet. Medium heavy body, some chewiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FROTHINGSLOSH (5530) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2014
From the June 2013 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright amber color with a large foamy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was grapefruit, perfume, cactus and a medicinal presence. The flavor was bitter grapefruit, perfume, cactus and cardamom. Very odd. Long finish. Medium body. Meh.

More like Marmaladeheart. Not what I was expecting, from the name or style. Had to check their website to make sure this wasn't supposed to be some tongue-in-cheek fruit beer- it's all apricot, not much English pale ale bite. Wish I'd saved this for breakfast. It would be great with a croissant or bagel. Add some white cheddar... Now I'm just wasting your time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jflopsu (827) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Pours a clear rust orange. Has a caramel and oaky aroma. Taste is complex with malts, spices, hops, oak and caramel. A modest aftertaste. Not what I expected for an IPA.

Tap. Lacing. Clear amber-gold. Strong oakey boozey nose. Tastes boozey, oakey and trumps the bitterness a bit.

Amazing aroma. Nice appearance (a nice amber with a thin white head). But I'm not a fan of the caramel and boozy taste. Good beer, just not my favorite ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
