Bottle pour..pretty large head after aggressive pour..light amber copper color..bit of rising carbonation action..nose has a caramel..honey profile with a barely there blood orange..texture is pretty sweet, syrupy..not much bitterness here..mouthfeel is slightly sticky..does hide the abv well..not really typical of what I expected..spicier than wanted..sort of has some resemblances in sweetness to 90..a pretty average collaborative effort...

Poured from a bottle into a new dogfish IPA glass. Clean gold appearance with a big white foamy head that laces. Smells big on pine hops, some floral aroma, lavender, herbs. Tastes sweet from the malt backed up with the hops, and an underlying alcohol warmth. Interesting beer. Not anything overly unique, but it’s easy drinking with a pleasant after taste leah2974 (453) - Georgia, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Foamy white head. Coppery yellow color. Aroma is sweet. Sweet, mild, muted flavors. Spicy hops. Chalsk (1104) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - MAR 8, 2013
On tap at Gingerman. Pours a golden orange color with a thin white soapy head. Aroma of grapefruit, dark fruit, and earthiness. Sweet caramel taste, with a nice mellow but resiny hop hit and a malty, melon like sweetness to add an extra layer. Very enjoyable. b3shine (9079) - Indiana, USA - MAR 8, 2013
750 ml bottle to taster (thanks BeerPig). Looks good; a fairly transparent orange with lively carbonation and fluffy off-white head that slowly dissipates. Smells and tastes solid; hops and pale malt. Average on the palate. Solid, but not spectacular.

Pours deep gold with a large off white head. Aroma is a faint blend of grainy malts and mellow hoppy pine. Taste is very pilsner-like with, again, faint hops and a little bright bitter bite. The two flavors are well balanced, but a little one deminsional. Regardless, it is very easy to drink. SDalkoholic (2408) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Bottle from Bine and Vine: Created a thick fluffy pillow of foam head while a sparkling golden pale ale rested below. Aroma is subtle with only minor hints of hops and bready malts which in all fairness have been rounded out into perfect symmetrical balance. The flavor is mild and still holds the balance between the hops and malts while only allowing a quick notice of sweetness and bitterness due to the malt and hop, however, this tends to be somewhat boring and bland. There is a smooth drinking palate to this beer but that in no way is going to leave a lasting impression on me about this beer. kayres (888) - , Georgia, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Crystal clear orange with a thin white head. Bright piney medium bodied with excellent bitter finish

Serving: 750 ml. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a clear orange color with a small fluffy head. The nose is mix of grass, orange, caramel, and a hint of pine. The flavor follows suit with a nice hop and malt balance. The finish has a medium bitterness. I was surprised to see this one was 8% and an IIPA. I would have pegged it for more of a APA. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Bottle. Clear bright golden with a short lived fluffy white head. Slightly soapy citrus hops and caramel aroma. Creamy full bodied palate. Grassy caramel and citrus taste with an herbal finish and very well hidden alcohol.
