COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This was a limited run that quickly gathered a cult following of depraved devotees. So much so that we had to start making it all year long. Big flavor. Makes other beers taste like tap water. Beer Geek Note: We started using Warrior hops in this brew in place of Chinook.

Draft. Bulldog. Jackson MS. Light gold and clear. Nose is mild as its very cold. Taste is malty with some nice sweeter hops. Sticky and sweet. Goes down smooth. Nice. Points off for no aroma.

bytemesis (7439) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 7, 2013
Bottle - thanks Mora2000 for state #49! Pours hazy amber with a small off-white head that dissipates quickly with good lacing. Aroma is caramel, pine. Flavor is the same, medium sweet and lightly bitter; piney hops and caramel malts dominate. Bitterness increases to the finish and becomes slightly metallic. Medium body, oily mouthfeel. Actually not bad, likely a bit old. Bottle was notched "07" but I am not sure which year, or if that was a bottled on or a best buy date.

Very hazy copper orange pour. Lots of sediment. Medium fluffy white head with good lacing. Aroma is very hoppy. Mostly earthy and spicy characteristics. Malty sweetness comes through. Backdrop of citrus and pine. A little boozy. Flavor is very similar. Very earthy dank hops. Some spiciness. Caramel sweetness comes through a bit as well. Not a big fan of hop varieties. ---Rated via iPhone

LilBeerDoctor (3824) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2013
On tap at Keg and Barrel. Pours a hazy orange with a pretty thick white head. Aroma of sweaty hops, citrus, tropical fruits. Flavor of sweet fruits up front with sticky, resiny hops in the finish. Not overly sweet like some IIPAs and not too heavy either. I quite liked it; despite prior ratings I found it very palatable and flavorful. 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

We had this beer at the 2013 Tops of the Hops in Biloxi, MS. Way too hoppy for us.

ChainGangGuy (4862) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Appearance: Pours out a hazed, muted orange-hued body with an off-white (faintly yellowed) head.

Smell: Peppery notes and resiny hints integrated into a scent of orange marmalade atop the base maltiness yielding notes of bready pale malts, a little bit of golden syrup. Slight whiffs of alcohol, too.

Taste: Bready pale maltiness with a modest sweetness akin to treacle in the fore. Floral, citrusy hops, slightly resinous with a moderate degree of hop bitterness. As with the nose, a little alcohol showing. Dry, bitterish, citric finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Itll do in a pinch!

Ibrew2or3 (8358) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Poured up on tap at GABF 2012 with a clear gold body that supports a light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up mango like tropical fruit notes with just a sliver of pine off in the background and a slim sweet malt base that is showing through. The taste is similar with a decent level of mango tropical fruitiness as well as some bitter tangelo that gets sweetened up by a little bit of malt. The hops are resiny with just a little smattering of flavor hops too. It seems to be more of a IPA level of richness and flavor and hoppiness rather than a IIPA.
