Draft. Pours an orange body with a white head. Really hoppy citrus tones, passion fruit, pineapple very pleasing aromatic character. A drying hop resinous body with a fruity sweetness, and just enough warming to relax ya, really great stuff i thought. jcwattsrugger (12517) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2009

Draft… Clear, dark golden ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma is resiny and earthy – mainly pine. Full-bodied and almost chewy with moderate carbonation. Even at 78 degrees (sunny day; sat outside), the hop bitterness wrestles the pale and caramel malts to the ground and neutralizes them with a full nelson. In other words, the lupulin is the star of this show. The finish is lengthy and bittersweet, but the bitterness lingers on the back of my palate long after the sweetness has faded. dchmela (3078) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 14, 2010
Tap at the brewery. Hazy dark gold pour with a thick white head. Spicy citrus, pine aroma. Taste is bitter spicy citrus hop with a nice malt balance. Tasty. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Draft @ Brewpub: Unfiltered orange color with a light head and lacing. Nose of orange and grapefruit, mild citrus and dry hops. The flavor is citrus and grassy. Lots of hops and a mild caramel note in the finish. The hopse are good. Balanced. Ibrew2or3 (8808) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 9, 2009
On tap at the brewery. It poured hazy orange-ish copper with gold edges and nearly a bright white head. Served up a bit warmer than the usual frigid pours. Still comes across too cold for the style. The aroma has sweet malts, a touch of caramel and modest citrus. The taste begins with a mix of sweet malts, crystal malts, grapefruit and tangelo bitter citrus hoppiness. As midway is being considered the various malts fall back to reveal an increasing level of citrus hop bitterness. Caramel sweetness and a modest amount of roasted malts hang on into the finish. It ends pretty neutral with lingering citrus hops and mild dry roasted malt astringency creating a pleasing balance to a beer style defined by its lack of balance. It comes up well short of pushing the limits of the style but its malt chewiness and hop presence puts it into the IIPA category. Fully sessionable and very satisfying brew. sebletitje (10287) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 27, 2009
Tap @ brewery.
Pours copper with thin white head.
Aroma of floral hops, some caramel notes, malts and syrup like sugar.
Taste, had just plenty of hops - floral notes, with some light grapefruit presence and some spices.
Balanced with malts and caramel giving the beer a syrupy / sugar mouthfeel.
