(Bottle) Pours a hazy burnt orange body with a spare off-white head. Aroma of citus and breadiness. Flavor is loaded with malt, hops, and caramel. hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2006
On tap. Poured a deep orange color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of citrus and caramel. Tastes of caramel, citrus / oranges, and some melons. Definitely sweeter (brown sugary) than it was bitter. Light alcohol in the finish (but overall well hidden). I would have preferred more of a hoppy / bitterness to balance out the sweetness. slowrunner77 (12804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 7, 2014
"earthy and sweet malt, juicy hops, but perhaps not quite enough. a decent IIPA, but nothing I’d go out of my way for. pretty good fresh, otherwise skip." Sammy (12725) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2009
Very decent hoppy plus IPA. Pours golden colour, with significant beige head, that leaves very decent lace. Only one-third of a litre, I will drink it! Pleasant aroma, even a touch of roast!?! Above average creamy moutfeel, citrus in the background of this beershake. Hops dominate the malt, drinkable. Found at the Warehouse in Cleveland. jcwattsrugger (12524) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2008

Bottle. Orange/pine hops aroma. Hazy orange-amber color with large head and nice lacing. Strong pine hops and sweet caramel hops flavor. Nicely blended. A pleasure to drink. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 24, 2008
Bottle from total wine. Amber and cloudy...nice head. Aroma is nice with a good dose of floral hops, sweet malt and some citrus notes. Flavor is not half bad at all. Very fruity and then finish has a perfect hop bite. Not overly bitter, but the hops speak through the malt very well. Good beer for the price. BVery (11361) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 14, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Mildly hazy orange pour with a mostly white head. Citrus and resiny nose. Medium mouthfeel with some sharp carbonation. Sharp hop bite early, then piney resin, citrus, and malt present. Finishes clean. Really nice brew. hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2008
Bottle... Murky orange ale with thousands of white floaties tooling around the inside of the glass. Small, creamy, off-white head that is decently retained. Fruity, malty aroma delivers big notes of citrus, fuzzy and tropical fruits caramel, toffee and praline. Full-bodied and chewy with moderate carbonation. Robust caramel sweetness balanced nicely by a ballsy bitterness. Alcohol is detectable, but not overbearing. Caramelly, bittersweet finish. Kudos to scraff for shipping this bottle down from Baltimore! DocLock (11020) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2006
Draft at DRE. Slightly hazy orangish color with fluffy, one-finger off-white head. Aroma of heavy tropical citric hops, plus some bready malt and fruit notes. Medium, hoppy and fruity palate, with flavors of tangering, mango, and black pepper noted. Very smooth and quaffable with well hidden alcohol, this one is outstanding!
