Hazy amber beer, good bubbly pale cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and crisp. Minerals. Sweetish malts, mild cream, whisper of honey. Brief flash of bright tangerine, a more steady orange. A touch of vodka like alcohol! Good tropical fruits before a smooth and semi dry finish. Mild hop spice at the very end. Peel bitter linger. Nice.

mcberko (17815) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy orange amber with a medium white head. Aroma brings out a big caramel malt backbone, resinous hops, and some residual sugar. Flavour brings out some notes of yeast, resinous hops, some bready malts, and some dry caramel malts. There are some sweet fruity notes that kick in later. Finishes malty sweet, with a bit of dark fruits. Not the hoppiest IIPA out there by any means - overtaken by the sweeter malt profile on this. Drinkable in smaller amounts - I wouldn’t want a pint of this. Decent.

Bottle. Pours clear gold with off white head. Nose and taste of caramel, citrus, sweet malt, grapefruit rind and orange peel. Medium body.

3.3
brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Pours amber in color with a finger of off-white head. Kind of past its prime, it seems. Sweet caramel and toffee malt with some bready malt. Floral hops and a bit of citrus, but not all that hoppy. A little bit herbal and piney with some floral notes. Sweet toffee and bread, but overall just kind of meh.
