Bomber into pint. Creamy head. Bready aroma, with some brown sugar and blood orange. Creamy mouthfeel, lactic sweetness at first. Finish shows the hops in a mild, flowery bitterness. On further sips, the hops intrude sooner in a dirty bitterness that starts before the swallow. Thereís nothing specially distinctive about the beer, but any lover of IPAs should grok it. Nice balance between the malts and the hops.

Sampled at GABF 2015 in Denver. From my tasting notes a year late the was golden orange in my tasting glass with a white head. Nose of citrus and fruit. Medium body. Resinous mouth feel. Flavor is tropical fruit, citrus and some pine. Bitter finish. Very nice.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy amber/orange pour. Small, creamy, off white head. Plenty of lacing. Big aroma of Cascade - orange, pine. Some malt notes in the back. Taste is malty up front - bread. Big hoppy bite follows with some orange and lemon notes. Big alcohol, big. A little too boozy, and it doesnít seem to try and hide it.

Hopleaf, Chicago. Very rich, golden orange. Very creamy off white foam. Dense soapy citrus. I thought listerine, but not in a bad way. Heavy, thick sip. Robust malt, reduced English bitter. Solid dense hop start to finish. Nice big beer.

On tap at Tap & Grind on Orlando. Dark copper, thin foamy head. Warm smelling- brown sugar and toffee. Resiny pine taste with heavy caramel malt. Heavy mouthfeel. Hops stay with you well into the finish. A nice beer, although a little malty for my taste.

Poured from the bottle of a 6-pack, looks a chunky dark orange with lacing that documents every drink. It is a very mellow and smooth 10 percent-er. I was surprised to find that I had not tried this before, but if I see it on the shelf, this season or next, I will drink it again.

Light but punchy, Hoppy and smooth, not too bitter at all. A good bit of citrus, zesty but not tart. Really quite a standout.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice, toffee-sweet aroma with notes of vanilla and sturdy strawberry esters. OK label, standard longneck. Brumous bronze color, lacing eggshell head. Up front itís a little chemical, especially when cold. Grapefruit pith, caramelized sugars, straw, elm sap, jute twine. Nicely bitter in the middle, but somewhat clingy towards the end. Goes distinctly grassy with a mellow sweetness in the aftertaste as it warms. Hard for me to determine where 2xIPA ends and barleywine begins. Respectable. New Leaf Market, Tallahassee.
