Impressive brew. No distinctive aroma that i could catch. Deep amber orange...almost what I would call a pumpkin color. Tall white head laces nicely. Smooth flavor with enough sweetness to conceal any bitter with just a hint of dryness at the end.

On tap. Pours amber with fluffy white head. Aroma is of citrusy hops, tropical fruit and caramel malt. Body is full and slightly crisp. Enormous amount of citrusy hops is balanced on the palate with caramel malt and tropical fruit. Finish is long, dry, and very hoppy. Excellent brew.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 2, 2015
[355ml can, Tasty Beverage Company, Asheville] Pours a totally opaque golden orange colour, with a decent half-inch head that fades to a thin lacing with a central island of bubbles. On the nose, peachy stone fruit from the hops. Tastewise, there’s a big lick of pineapple at first, before alcohol warmth and a chewy sweetness - this is probably a fairly old can and therefore verging into barley wine territory, the hops have faded somewhat. But it’s not the worse for it at all [02122016]

blankboy (7921) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2015
[Can (12oz)] Pours a clear gold with an average size long-lasting frothy white head. Minimal lacing. Sweet and hoppy aroma along with wood, honey, some alcohol, a good amount of fruit and a light vegetal note. Flavour is also sweet and hoppy along with fruit, alcohol and bready malt. Medium bodied. Not as good as expected but pretty good.

3.7
ljthiessen (1540) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 23, 2015
Can. Pale clear yellow pour with a thin head. Aroma is hugely fruity, citrus and tropical fruit. Flavour is very juicy and fresh. Delicious.
