12oz Bottle. Best before: 05-16-08. Gooey hop nose. A good mingling of hop spices, wet leaves, and flowers. Blended and backed with alcohol and decent caramel. Pours a crystal-clear amber, with an orange fringe and white, soapy rim. Flavor is interesting. There’s a lot of hop flavor, which I greatly appreciate, but it gets washed away somewhat by piquant alcohols and a thin body. Not as chewy as I would have expected with this color. Grapefruit juice lingers. A little bit of dust and lightly old hop resin dot the back end of the beer. A very mild yeast by-product shows mid-palate. Nice hop flavors, but in the end a little watery, dusty-tasting, and alcoholic. Thanks Sean!
Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a clear copper with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has earthy citrus and resin with bread backing. Flavor has grass and earthy citrus with a bit of bread underlying. SG111 (2143) - New York, USA - NOV 5, 2016

4 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s taproom in Warren, Michigan. Consumed on 4-21-16. Pours a clear amber with beige to cream head. Nice color. Orange citric hops in the aroma. Grainy smell. The graininess works better in the flavor than the aroma. Tastes like cereal with orange slices. Medium body. Frothy in the palate. Nice palate effects. Overall, good though not great. bpar73 (1199) - Bellaire, Michigan, USA - JUN 17, 2015

Pour on tap at the brewery, slightly hazy orange pour with fluffy white head, aroma brought notes of nice orange peel, citrus into some floral notes, some slight pine into some caramel, toffee. Taste was a mix of citrus, slight white fruit into some floral, herbal notes, some caramel and toffee round it out, finishing bitter.

(draft @ Kuhnhenn Brewing Company - Warren, MI) Amber pour with a thin white head. Sweet caramel and malt aroma with a piney and citrus undertone. Flavor is sweet at the start with a bitter hop backbone that blends well with the sweet malts. Ferris (17099) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2014

Draft. Clear and orange with a 2 finger head. Lots of lacing in glass. The best thing about this beer was the nose - beautiful citrus/floral hops. Smooth in the mouthfeel with lots of citrus notes. Decent malt balance. Very easy drinking. Damn good IPA by a fine brewery. JaBier (8396) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2014
