Dogbrick (12247) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2012
This brew pours a mostly clear dark orange color with a medium bone white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Partial rings of lace on the glass. The aroma is hoppy with some pale malt behind it. Light body with flavors of biscuit malt, citrus and mildly bitter hops. The finish is fruity with a short hops aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

deyholla (10686) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 5, 2015
On tap at the 12th Man. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has a light sweet citrus note with some sweet grains and a touch of bitterness. Flavor has sweet grains and bread with a growing but light citrus note.

adnielsen (10573) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle @ the medicinal shop. Pours a golden orange appearance with a frothy, cream colored head. Slightly piney, sprucey, herbal, moderate citrusy aroma. Slightly twangy, orange citrusy, herbal, soapy flavor. Not as good as some of their other offerings. Would like to re-rate on tap.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Tap at Fremont. Pours a clear, bright golden with webby lacing. Nose has the brewerys characteristic weedy skunk note universal in their hoppy stuff along with some raw brewhouse/sweet wort boil. It doesnt bother me- makes it feel rustic. But for others this may be seen as flawed. Taste is full biscuit balance, beautiful malt showcase as always with this brewer. Thick mango, marmalade, grilled papaya, huge sourdough biscuit. Balancing, beautiful. Shows a lot of brewer aptitude.

BVery (9936) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Can shared by Bob - thanks! Clear light golden pour with a smaller head. Syrupy citrusy aroma, a little bready. Smooth. Pretty solid.

j12601 (9790) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 20, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a lightly hazed golden amber with a thin white head. Soft citrus, a hint of froot loops. Medium bodied, picks up a touch of sweaty mango armpit stuff, otherwise pretty nice. Gentle bitterness with a touch of grapefruit into the finish.
