Draught at BJ:s Restaurant and Brewhouse, Brea. Clear golden beer with a nice lasting offwhite/yellowish head. Fruity hop aroma, grassy, peach, pine, some caramel. Hoppy grape and pine flavor, peach, grassy bitterness, oranges, caramel, someone apples. Quite ok. UDBeernut (2883) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2015
On tap in Kentucky. Pours golden Amber, major haze, think off white head that is silly. Minimal nose. Taste is massive tropical... Pineapple, oranges, mango. Slight bitterness. Light body. Aggiebob (1293) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Draft It poured a cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma was hoppy with flavors of grapefruit and pine. Very good. Zymurgeist2 (2363) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 22, 2015
On tap at San Bruno location. Aromas of bread, decaying pine needles and slight molasses. Poured mostly clear orange with white head. Taste was assertive chewy bread malt. Faint orange and dirty forest floor. Mouthfeel was a cloying - surprisingly so for the ABV. A disappointment after enjoying the Oktoberfest. phaleslu (10652) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Draft served in a flight at the local brewpub. Pours a somewhat cloudy gold with an off-white head that leaves a sheet of lace and a spotty film behind. Sweet and malty and grainy. Orange, macaroon, grass, and florals provide some balance, but it’s all over the place. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. The mouthfeel starts muddled, gets too sweet in the middle, and finishes with a bit of bitterness. After some good pale ales, this one is a total mess. Maybe six hops are too many.

Draft... Pours clear and amber with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The aromatic standouts are piney resin and floral blossoms. Medium-bodied with zippy carbonation. The flavor is pleasantly bitter and tongue-numbing. Earthy and spicy hops in this east coast-style IPA. Finishes moderately bitter, slightly raspy and dry. dchmela (3078) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Growler from Brewhub. Pours a deep clear gold. Piney earthy citrus hop aroma. Smooth clean malt with light sweetness and clean citrus hop bite. Tasty. Chudwick (3363) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Taster in Florence - citrus nose. Sip adds resin. Strong hop flavors and taste. Aggressive. Light body. Long bitter finish. maddmatt639 (344) - Pacifica, California, USA - JUN 3, 2015
Light retention and light lacing. Smells of citrus, orange and pineapple. Tastes of orange peel, lemon and dry hops. Semi-bitter aftertaste.

21st May 2015: BJ’s Laguna Hills outlet. Part of an eight glass flight. Amber body, thin wispy head. Bold hop front to both the nose and taste: not as bitter as the aroma suggests: mild spice and fruity flavour with a slight citrus bite in the finish: decent.
