on tap @ Diamond Bear / Little Rock AR --- Aroma of malt and rosin. Clear medium amber color, white head that slowly drops to a thin cover, bands of lace. Taste is caramel malt and citrus that floats easily through a medium carbonated swallow to a finish that has malt and hops sharing the stage. A solid IPA. Where is the 9.9%? Recommended.

Bottle. Light amber color, but the beer delivers a huge floral aroma and flavor component. Bit bitter, but the floral perfume is predominate. Big DIPA, but not overpowering. (#4046, 12/16/2010) ben4321 (6500) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 6/6/11

Aroma: The nose is fairly citrusy, orange notes, a bit of candied sugar, and floral hop notes
Appearance: It pours a pretty much clear orange color with a frothy beige head and some lace
Flavor: The taste is fairly sweet for the style, orange candy sweetness, citrus and floral hops
Palate: The body is medium (plus), and it kind of coats the mouth with a lasting, cloying feel to it
I guess ye ole description could use an update, as this one is available in 12 oz bottles (I would know as I am currently drinking one). Anyway, this was actually rather solid. Considering that this is one of the (very) few breweries in a beer-lacking state, I wasn’t really expecting much from them, but so far their stuff has not been too bad. I’ll keeping drinking Diamond Bear brews when I’m in town.
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2011 Bottle from ben4321 - my first Arkansas tick! Pours an orange cloudy haze, light head. Aroma is citrus, light floral. Citrus and hop up front on taste, medium bitterness, then some floral on the finish. Medium body, long finish from the hops. A solid example of the DIPA style, and apparently it is not only just available on draft, as I poured myself one out of a bottle.

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.

On tap; poured a dark orange color with a smallish head. Aroma of orange, candi sugar, and fruit sugar. Easy to drink. Some nice sugar qualities. Some fruit juice and honeysuckle qualities. Good stuff kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Deep amber with small head. Faint hop and malt aroma. Flavor is floral hops with decent malt backbone. Slightly soapy - ? old bottles crossovert (12874) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2015
355ml bottle. Lame marketing. Bit I like this stuff definitely maltier but ppindable for the abv. ChainGangGuy (4894) - 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: It’ll do in a pinch!
