ctipping (1335) - Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2016
650 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 2/10/2014. Clear orange body. Small white head. A little bit of surface wisping. Smells kinda like simcoe. Grapefruit with that garlicky aroma. Not as intense as simcoe, though. More orangey flavor, especially up front. A little bit grainy. Resiny in the back, but it’s minimal. The dank-ish simcoe flavor is gone here. Medium body. Slight astringency in the back. Minimal bitterness. I like this slightly better than Orange. Not an enormous difference, side by side I can make a distinction.

arminjewell (9251) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 23, 2015
Pour out of bottle, hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of slight pine, grass, lemon peel into a bit of orange, slight bready notes with a hint of floral hops. Taste was a mix of floral, earthy, grassy hops into a bit of yeast, bread, slight orange, lemon notes, finishing slightly dry, bitter

hopscotch (10601) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle... Pours hazy and yellow with a tiny, short-lived, white head. The hop-driven nose is peppery with big-time citrus fruits and a slight armpit characteristic. Medium to full-bodied and sticky with modest carbonation. The flavor is bittersweet, featuring honey and corn sweetness. More sweet than bitter – by far. Lengthy, mostly sweet finish. Bottle shared by ctipping!

Bottle courtesy of - you guessed it - iphonephan. Thank you! Hazy yellow color. Aroma of earthy fruit. Taste is smooth, fruity, earthy. Tasty.

BVery (9574) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle. Hazy yellow gold pour with a white head. Soft hops, but good citrus and mild pine flavor and aroma. Very nice. Easy drinking.

camborne (656) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - MAR 17, 2014

radagast83 (7301) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAR 10, 2014
22oz bottle. Thanks to Iphonephan! March 2014 DC Tasting. Poured a yellow color with a small white head. Aroma is light malt, some very mild citrus and some decent malt notes. Flavor was sweet, mostly nondescript, but better hop character then the yellow-label.

Bomber pours pale with nice head. Aroma is bursting with fruit loops and floral notes. Taste is very smooth And balanced with a dry finish, hard to tell these apart really
