Appearance’s decent with loads of lace, fairly long lasting head, but a color that’s more red amber. Flavor’s on the balanced side with plenty of malt to stand up to the bold hops. Great body and finish. Very drinkable for its strength. alexsdad06 (10434) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Draft to taster at Cappy’s from recent notes. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel, resiny, herbal notes, citrus, red fruit, light tropical fruit notes, some alcohol started showing, interesting beer to come across.

Pours an amber-golden with a tan-white head. Clean, vibrant, hoppy nose. Sharp and alcoholic, yet smooth mouthfeel. Perfumy in the mouth. Orange Cert and rye flavor. smroush (281) - Michigan, USA - OCT 26, 2016
Aromas are a very nice balance of hops and malt. The hops are tropical fruits - orange, grapefruit and mango; also some floral notes. The malt provides caramel, toffee and a bit of molasses and nutty aromas.
Color is a fairly dark, attractive reddish-brown. Clear. Head is averaged size and off-white.
Bitterness is fairly moderate to strong; sweetness is moderate.
Medium bodied; alcoholic; just a bit lively carbonation; finish is long with both the fruity hops and the toffee malts.
Overall I like this beer quite a bit; both the malts and hops are fairly powerful and very nicely balanced. Fairly complex. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2016
Draught at Bell's Eccentric Cafe, Kalamazoo, MI.
Clear deep amber color with a small off-white head.
Citrusy and fruity hops, moderate bitterness and some malt in the aroma.
Resiny hops, sweetness, sugar, some alcohol and moderate bitterness in the flavor.

Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a red brown color with a small foamy white head that faded quickly and left minimal lacing. The aroma was tart and rather bitter with notes of pine, citrus, a bit of malty and a touch boozy. The flavor was tangy and sweetish yet fairly bitter with pine, grapefruit, black pepper, honey, caramel and malt syrup with a boozy undertone. Medium length sweet piney finish. Moderately full bodied. Pleasant. arminjewell (9676) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 24, 2016
Pour on tap at Taps 25, dark reddish pour with off white head, aroma brought big orange, grapefruit, dank, resinous notes with some slight pine, hints of caramel, but pretty hidden by the hops. Taste was a mix of resin, pine, grass, slight floral notes, some citrus notes with some slight caramel, toffee, finishing fairly bitter. Even with it being a bit malt forward it was balanced well.

On tap at Studio 35 at the Dude-a-Thon on 1/17/16. Pours clear red with a thick beige head. Aroma of caramel malt, piney hops and citrus. Malty and caramelly flavor with orange, grapefruit and tropical fruit accents before a sweet malt finish. Bricks (1126) - Delaware, USA - DEC 17, 2015
Tasted like malty IPA goodness, but a stronger version. Smooth for nearly 11%
