Bottle share @ Hampton Inn pre-DLD 2016. Pour is cloudy light yellow with a small white head. Notes of grapefruit juice, orange peel, melon, and slight pine bitterness. phaleslu (11178) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2016
16 oz. can via local trade. Pours a mostly clear gold with a finger of soft white head that settles into a ring and some film while lacing the glass. Very juicy and fruity, with notes of oranges, mango, melon, pineapple, pine resin, nectar, some summery florals, and a sweet malt backbone to hold it all together. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, juicy, fruity mouthfeel. Minimal bitterness. I would’ve guessed this was Citra or something more like that. This really pops with tropical fruits. Delicious stuff. And proof that their hoppy stuff - or any hoppy stuff - doesn’t need to be hazy to be good. riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 29, 2016

Orange golden pour nice head light haze. Flavors are solid simcoe hops - citrus orange grapefruit, pale malts, white bread, medium sweetness. Lingering chewy citrus hops. Nice stuff.

Can, 1 pint. Clear pale with a creamy offwhite head. Pungent aromas of tropical hops, resin. Medium to full bodied, moderate to fizzy carbonation. Dry and thin. Medium to heavy sweet, medium bitter. Rich malty character into a stinging hoppy finish. Percy0103 (791) - MEXICO - AUG 20, 2016
Can, 1 pint. A clear golfen beer with a medium size white head. Tropical aromas of hops and citrics. Taste is medium bitter and medium sweet. Nice citrus character with fizzy carbonation and some astringency. Reminds me of orange at the end.

From can. The dank, Moe, the dank. Great aroma on this. Pale golden yellow clear with thin white head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts moderately sweet with a ton of hop flavor, apricot and dankness. Sweet finish with carbonic bite, lingering apricot finish and after. Very nice.

16 oz. can from 4 -Pack purchased at 7-11, Kittery, ME. Canned 7/23/16. Almost a hazy yellow pour, lasting thin white head. Aroma is more citrus and fruit then I would have guessed. Pine is here but more fruit. Chalumeaux (2007) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 5, 2016
The flavor has a great juicy mouthfeel (after 2 cans I can say I like the mouthfeel most) again like the aroma, the fruit character is higher than I would have guessed. Pine comes in at the finish with a very low bitterness for the Imperial IPA status. For some reason I was expecting a pine bomb, not the case. Wonderfully balanced. Body is nice (no doubt the oats).
I really hope to sample more from this series because this is really nice!
Poured from can dated 7/23/16 thanks Airforcehops orange gold with a nice white head. Aromas of dank citrus pineapple mango floral notes and pine. Taste is nice not too sweet juicy citrus great mouth feel. AdamChandler (5276) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 5, 2016
Tall-boy thanks AFH for sharing. poured at fridge temp and is a light golden orange, low haze, 1 finger off-white head. The aroma is really nice. refreshing, bright with a great citrus and pine texture. nice gentle mouthfeel. good thickness. almost no sweetness at all. grapefruit juice, grapes, orange peel. nice overall. a little doughy which isn’t surprising given the ABV but it’s not over the top.
