ryanscourt (782) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Huge hop aroma, citrus mango, grapefruit. Smells like an imperial ipa. Body is not as strong as the nose but instead very smooth and medium bodied. Not overly bitter. Very fresh tasting. Qualities of a big beer but in the frame of an a pale ale. Reminds me of two hearted in its big citrus flavors. Up there with the best.

SteveBennet (14) - Paris, FRANCE - OCT 31, 2014
On tap at mikkeller. Nice amber pour, thick off white head. No lacing but they were really busy and the glass could have been still wet. Aromas of pineapple, tropical, bit of skunk, pine resin. Medium body, crisp finish with lingering bitterness. Scary good and easily drinkable for the ABV.

VRH (50) - Georgia, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Pours a light golden color with an ample off-white head that recedes to a thin lacing. The aroma is full of juicy pineapple, citrus, some tropical fruit & hints of banana peel. The taste is full of tart grapefruit & resinous pine, some lemon zest, a hint of onion, & modest malt foundation on the palate. The finish is drying, slightly herbal & grassy with lingering hints of sweet fruit. Excellent!

TheCaptMatey (67) - Ohio, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Poured golden to light amber colour with white head. Left beautiful lacing. Soft aroma of primarily citrus with notes of cracker, but nothing overwhelming. Flavor was a hoppy citrus and pine with a mild wheat malt undertone. Medium body with light carbonation and mild bitterness. Very drinkable.

GlasgowTAD (79) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - OCT 22, 2014
Cloudy orange with a sandstone coloured head Aroma is oranges and bitter Taste is bitter followed by a pleasant orange tanginess with notes of grapefruit. The bitterness is a tease in this one, it entices you with its aroma then leaves you longing for more as it lingers around once the beer makes its way south. This beer feels fluffy in the mouth, almost feels like you’re drinking cotton candy except this cotton candy is the result of a crazy Heston Blumenthal experiment. Perfect.

Bottle from unknown in trade. Pours a medium pale orange, lots of white head, full and lacy. Aroma sharp and fresh, pineapple, some resin, graham cracker. Body full yet light, very crisp and refreshing. My second or third time having it, but first since joining RB. Not too shabby.
