runaway (104) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 2, 2017
12 oz bottle pours cloudy goldenrod amber with a pillowy off-white head. Aroma is of biscuit, hay, orange juice. Taste is sweet, pith, pine. Extremely astringent finish seems pretty one dimensional. Creamy and anemic. I think this needs some serious food pairing to make it palatable.

Starkes Gushing, optisch einwandfrei, perlt noch heftig weiter. In der Nase Weinsäure, das wird mir doch nicht gekippt sein? Im Trunk Zitrus, matt, dann leicht säuerlich, bitter, keine Frucht mehr da. Im Abgang halten die Bitternoten noch lange nach. Eher ein englisches IPA, Alkohol aber kaum auszumachen. Mir zu gewöhnlich.

CObiased (548) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - AUG 8, 2017
12oz bottle (no date) - pours a clearish orangey/gold/amber color with an overflowing off white head. The aroma is ok with notes of citrus peels, bready malt and a whiff of pine. Funky undertones of Belgian yeast, grapefruit zest, astringency and an over the top intense bitter aftertaste.

shrubber85 (11666) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 30, 2017
Bottle. Floral tangerine, biscuit malt, pine, and grapefruit peel aroma. Golden yellow with large eggshell white head and mild effervescence. Moderately sweet citrus, biscuit malt, and moderately strong bitter pine/grapefruit peel flavor. Good body. Solid.

Patrickctenchi (6750) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 30, 2017
Bottle:
Hazy golden-yellow with a tall beige head.
Pine, grapefruit, grain scent.
Fairly sweet greain malt, citrus.....mild resiny bitter in taste.
Creamy body....very solid and tasty overall....a little herbal-ness in the finish.
(the 96 IBU claim seems a bit inflated, IMO)

hershiser2 (3696) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 14, 2016
Bomber from Total Wine, Gainesville. Pours hazy golden with a large beige head. Lots of carbonation in this one. Aroma of lemon zest, and grapefruit peel. Flavor is lemony toasted bread. Kinda bland, but not bad in any way. Grapefruit peel lingering finish.

2.8
Letshaveatry (19) - Menai Bridge, WALES - NOV 25, 2016
330ml bottle, 5.25%. Aroma slight hops, caramel also. golden amber, almost orange, long lasting off white small head. Taste, lets it down, slight sourness, moving to bready bitterness, with lively carbonation, aftertaste slightly unpleasant

3.3
Braudog (6852) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 18, 2016
Bottle. Rustic and ruddy, this is burnt-orange with a big, defensive head. It’s got quite the Anglophile aroma, woodsy, gritty. It drinks the same, yet somehow light in body. (#6402, 11/18/2016)

zacgillbanks (5535) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2016
5.25% ABV bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Hazy golden with a thin white head. It has a citrus and peppery hop flavour followed by a malty, toffee and grapefruit finish. Pretty good.
