Draft sample at IBGF 2009.
Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Heavy complex citrus hoppy aroma with a alcohol tone. Medium body with a slick texture and lively carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate duration.
This is a very good beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle… Space Coast Craft Beer Festival 2011 … Hazy, peach-colored ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The bouquet offers a nice medley of praline, apricot and peach. Full-bodied with a slick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Flavor-wise, this baby is like biting into a toffee-dipped and tropical honey-soaked grapefruit rind… ‘nuff said. Lengthy, citrus rind finish. I’m fairly certain pantanap shipped this one to me. Thanks, Kan!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2010 Sample at Heorot in Muncie, IN. This beer is a clear dark copper color with a medium off-white head that burns away quickly. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruit and hops. Medium body with flavors of sweet fruits, floral hops and malt. The finish is fruity and sweet with a short citrusy hops aftertaste. Just average overall.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap, shiiit, this tastes exactly like tropical mango juice, no sign of alcohol here, mild but persistent bitterness. This is the ultimate beer for the non-beer-drinker, it goes down like juice, tastes like juice, is this juice? Mildly carbonated, seriously a fruity beer. ---- In the bottle it is not as satisfying.

Bottle. Sweet orange and moderate orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with nice head. Sweet orange malt and moderately bitter orange peel flavor. Solid I2PA but without surprises.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap, poured red with white head. Aroma is some faint citrus with a touch of malt, pretty weak. Taste is similar, with a touch of hops but mostly caramel and a slightly bitter finish. Pretty disappointing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample from a 22oz bottle. Clear orange - gold color. Thin off-white / khaki head. Dots of lace. Very light carbonation. Dry texture. Medium body. Light warmth. Very interesting hop aroma. Resiny, some grapefruit, sweet bread, some other hop aroma I can’t pinpoint. Bitter taste, with a little alcohol heat but no burn. The aftertaste... Is long, citrusy. Kind of musty with the malts. Interesting DIPA
