2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy gold with zero head - low carbonation, almost flat in the mouth - fairly acidic, almost sour - grapefruit and lemon rind - low hop profile, aside from some grassy flavor on the end.- more sourness and acidity on the end.- something is off.
Shaker pint draft at Lowry Beer Garden in Denver, Colorado. They had this beer listed at 6.2% abv, and an IPA. Based on other reviews, I believe this is the same beer. The pour is a hazed orange copper, with not too much of an off white head. The aroma is fresh hop green, citrus, earth, along with some mineral. The taste is the green hop, earthy, herbal and some medicinal yeast. Behind that is some citrus leaf hop that was present in the nose. As it warmed, some onion and garlic was evident. The palate is medium bodied, soft carbonation and clove in the in finish. Just OK. DocJitsu (2026) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2015
Pours a deep golden with a cotton he will-retaining off-white head. Like notes of citrus peel, grass, and candied apple. Flavor approximates the nose the flavors are watery. daknole (11050) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Amber pour, light head. Flavors of citrusy hops, some light malt, bready flavors sneak in. Nothing offensive at all, but not quite top notch either. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Pour on tap at the brewery, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, some slight spice, a very green, earthy hop, with more spice and slight citrus than true hoppy notes. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, slight orange, grass, hints of spice, touch of green hop notes, finishing bitter, slightly dry. brokensail (16631) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 9, 2013

On tap @ Copper Kettle. Pours a burnt orange appearance with a tan head. Tropical fruity, citrusy, toasted malty, biscuity aroma. Light veggie, chewy bready, lemon flavor. Not my favorite. NachlamSie (3536) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Pint at the brewery. Pours dark amber with a small white head. Aroma is a little hoppy with grassy notes, assertive malts, and a faint tart something. Palate is heavier for the style. Hops are not very standout, add a little bitterness and grassy notes. I’d like more hop notes, especially since this is fresh hopped. Finish is caramelly and woody. Aight.

Draft at taproom. Pours slightly orange with a white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Not getting much on the nose. Has some citrus notes on tr pine tongue. Finishes tight and dry. Solid for style. onceblind (10342) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Slightly hazy rustic gold with a thin bubbly head. Great aroma of bright floral hops, syrupy sweet grapefruit, and a great presence of caramel. The flavor is sweeter and more balanced than I expected from a 75 ibu beer, with orange citrusy caramel leading the charge on the flavor. The middle and finish though are full of sweet-like floral hops, some subtle grapefruit, and a gentle hop resin on the end. Pretty sweet and citrusy, decently hoppy though not really all that bitter.
