Not for me. Orange brown white off white head. Would have called it burnt orange if I liked it more. Aroma of grapefruit and lemon. First impression of the taste was that I was drinking a lemon scented cleanser. I like most of bbc, just not this. It looks and smells nice. Does that count?

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear copper with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is floral and citrus. Medium body, pine, citrus, light bitter finish, good.

BillKismet (3887) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Crystal clear amber color topped by a nice frothy head that is punctured by hop pocks. Fruity and punchy hop nose. Flowery hop flavor with rose water notes that veer into baby powder on the finish. Bitter, baby powder finish.

Cybercat (5247) - Georgia, USA - JUN 29, 2015
Pours clear Amber with a nice buff head that leaves generous lacing. Aroma is not strong, but crisp and malty. Flavor is considerably bolder, malty with hoppy and subtle fruity notes, quite enjoyable. Mouthfeel has average body and fizz, but finish is delightfully hoppy and not at all bitter. Worth a fair shake!

Straw color to amber. Good citrus hop aroma. Mild malts. Breads. Lean. But overall pretty good.

willisread (2814) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - MAR 17, 2015
Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Nice aromas of floral hops, citrus and resin with some malt in there as well. Fairly well-balanced between caramel malt and bitter hops on the palate. Biscuity malt flavors appear is it comes to room temperature. Nice bitter finish.

shadey (2084) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 27, 2015
12oz bottle. It took more than 20 minutes, one foam-over, and four different attempts to pour this beer. The head never diminished, it just got chewed. Aroma is all hop resin and just enough malt sweetness to pull it together. The flavor is cloying hop resin. Absolutely no balance. Nothing I would drink again.

Draft sampler pours Amber with a off white head. Aroma of malts, citrus and pine. Taste is malts and grapefruit.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2014 Tap @ Bluegrass: Burnt amber body with a somewhat lazy, slightly soapy white collar buffeted on top. White pepper covered grapefruit peels & a big citrus rind essence, smells quite bitter & floral. Very similar to the Atta Boy IPA, actually. Mild toasted cracker malt. Zesty bitterness all across the palate. More bitter grapefruit pith, more citrus peel, more herbal bitterness. Slightly floral & botanical finish with a hint of toasted malt.

wlajwl (5968) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Aroma is citrus, fruit and bitter/ESB-like. The flavor is citrus, fruit, biscuit/English malts, a small hint of hop resin and a very dry/tart/tangy finish. Similar to Honkers Ale, never a bad thing about that.
