Bottle 11$ Bruisin’ ales Ashville. Pours a foggy orange with a fine off white head. aroma is sweet and fruity with a load of hops. Flavor is sweet and rich with notes of caramel. Very hoppy and citrus. I saved mine for a while and I think it payed off. The body was full, i wasn’t expecting it. I had a glass of this and sampled it comparing to the regular Kashimir and they have simularities, bu this beer totally blows the other one out the the water. aracauna (3606) - Georgia, USA - JUN 20, 2008
Chill haze is readily noticeable right out of the fridge, but it does dissipate. The head is full and creamy (egg foam) and a little more white than is usual for a beer of this size. It disguises it’s 10.2 abv well. It could have easily turned into a barleywine at this strength, but instead tastes more like a strong IPA. I have to say it’s a little less hoppy than expected, but it’s an excellent beer. jercraigs (10374) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2008
2008-08-16. Hazy orange body with a modest creamy beige head. (3+) Aroma is a touch muted at first but some nice citrusy hops comes otf after a bit. Touches of tea like herbal notes. (7+) Sweetish malt core in the flavour with touches of caramel, light resin and herbal hops, light bitterness. (7+) Smooth medium bodied palate. (3+) Bottle, Coles IPA Festival, Buffalo

Bottle shared at Trappeze. Poured a deep amber orange, with minimal head. Aroma of sweet malt, spiced hop, and some floral hops as well. Taste was sticky sweet, with a nice hop bite. Finish was bitter, though not as bitter as some other IIPAs. Overall, a nice brew. Tmoney99 (14492) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Bottle shared at local BA tasting.
Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy tart citrus and earthy aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.
My expectations where met. AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - MAR 27, 2009
Pours an opaque mahogany copper with a thin cream colored head. Nose is overly sweet pineapple juice and caramel. The flavor is a bit better balanced with some earthy, dry hops. Still on the sweet side though, with a smooth mouthfeel. fidel (1302) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 27, 2009

Cloudy orange - amber beer. Rich silky palate. A little pepper rides over a marmaladey orange and grapefruit hop. The hops are deep but also mellow and not over bitter. Long smooth hop finish with a lingering but pleasant bitterness.
