Draft at Imbibe Wine. Nose is citrus, caramel, and very light tropical fruit. Hazy yellow orange with a small pale yellow head. Flavor is light bitterness with a hint of mango in the background GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Draft at Red’s. Poured a clear light orange color. The head was thick and off white with good retention and lacing. Smelled of flowery hop, light caramel, and grass. Medium bodied and moderately sweet with minimal bitterness. Pine and earthy hop flavors supported by malty caramel. There was also an astringent alcohol note. marcus (10483) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 15, 2012

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2012 11 Jan 2012, tap. Light gold, faintly cloudy, thick foamy head. Resin and orange juice hops. Smells nice and sweet with some bitterness. Med body and fizzy. Really great! White grapes, grapefruit rind bitterness but not very citrus. Great.

On draft. Hard to argue with previous raters. Pours a hazy orange with a substantial yellow/white head that diminishes quickly. Aroma is pine cones and citrus. Taste is smooth sweet pale malt along with the characteristic grapefruit and pine resin notes imparted by the hops. Alcohol is noticable, but not overbearing. Bitterness is medium. Very good effort!

Draft: Subdued bread crust and peanut nose. Hazy amber, no head. Nutty peanut and peanut hull flavor. Orange marmelade base. Finish is pencil shavings and cardboard. Full body. Very little hop character, but I’m intrigued by the malt profile and degree to which it has oxidized. I don’t like it so much as a DIPA, but it’s enjoyable and a nice bit of crafting. I wonder how old this is. It drinks like it might be a DIPA where the hops have fallen out of it. mrmartin (780) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 28, 2011
Hazy amber pour with big white head lots of lacing. Citrusy nose and lightly toasted malts. Medium body. Citrus and pine hops with a malty backbone. mild resiny finish.
s’ok nothing too special. bb (9695) - Alamo, California, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Draft. Amber beer with a cream colored head. Light pine and caramel aroma. Pine and earth flavor with light grapefruit and malt. Medium bodied. Decent bitterness. Pine and grapefruit lingers with caramel and earthiness. hopscotch (11175) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Draft… Clear orange ale with a large, frothy, white head. Excellent retention. The aroma delivers tons of tropical fruit – pineapple, guava, mango and a hint of pink grapefruit. Full-bodied and fatty with tickling carbonation. The flavor provides heaps of malt and tons of juicy, citric, rindy hops – nods toward the bitter side of balance. Finishes with a lingering grapefruit rind bitterness. BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - AUG 15, 2011
[On Tap] Lightly hazed golden orange appearance, decent head formation. Blend of orange juice and piney hops on the aroma. Lightly spiced palate, quite a bit of sugar and sweetness, real fruity orange and pineapple. Bitter bite in the finish but fairly mild for a DIPA. Decent flavors and depth but I expect a little more hop assertiveness for style.
