Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pour amber gold with a creamy white head. Aroma seems moderate pine/citrus with light malt. Med + body. Flavor seems a bit spicy/hot pine/citrus. Or something I’m not familiar with. Not wintergreen, but .... Maybe super rye? Nah. Strong caramel backbone. Lots and lots of hop. Quite tasty. oRos (1675) - sacramento, California, USA - MAR 5, 2015

Pours clear golden color, small head. Aroma is hops, tropical drive citrus, honey, malt, wheat. Flavor is sweet malts, tropical fruits. Balanced up front giving way to overall hoppy finish. Very good. Zymurgeist2 (2327) - Redwood City, California, USA - FEB 16, 2015
On tap at Harry’s Hofbrau as part of the SF Brewer’s Guild night. MASSIVE orange and citrus nose. Pours a hazy orange that is almost neon. I like this color, but could see where some do not. Head is pure white with moderate sustaining of large bubbles. Slight patterning down the sides. A little soapy looking. Taste is overt orange and citrus, with moderate high pine and bready malt in support. Moderate high bitterness helps the all-around effect on this beer. Very surprised, and very enjoyable!

BlackHaddock (7562) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2013
In the brewery tap on 5th Feb 2013, during ’Strong Beer Month’.
Pours a pleasant amber colour, clear, with a full beige head.
Mixed bag of flavours and smells: hops obviously rule throughout but there is an undertone of semi-sweet caramel/malty molasses in the brew also. Citrus based hop aroma, comes through into the taste nicely but doesn’t take over completely. The alcohol level is noticeable but not to the beers detriment, it suited the strong flavours well.
