Draft at the brewery,pours golden orange with little head, smell is citrus-y and earthy. Taste is straigth hop bitterness and is really smooth. Just a step up from the IPA! SoylentBlack (123) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 19, 2010
Stinky. First sip is a punch in the face. Pucker up. But everyone is spot on this is really good towards the end of that bomber, I wish I had more. KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Bottle from bleeng.bigbish (712) - California, USA - AUG 9, 2010
Pours a decent cheddar orange with an aroma of slight pine sap immersed in grapefruit juice. Flavor is pine grapefruit and citrus rind. Average mouthfeel. Not bad.
Pours a holden color with a good white head with some staying power. Great aroma. The flavor is fantastic, lots of hops, but not overly hopped like some DIPA. Just enough malt to give you a hint of it without taking away from the star, which is the hops. Good stuff. hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - MAR 7, 2011
from the cask at papago 7/28/10.
clear. worn penny - rich coppery color with a soft airy cask head.
it smells like sunshine would!... resinous, orange, grapefruit, wood, flowers and caramel.
the palate is a touch sweeter than i would ideally like but it is incredibly hoppy... citrus, dank, wood, toasty grain, caramel and a little ashiness on the finish.
the body is a bit too rich and slick for me toward the bottom of the glass but in small doses or with regular carbonation i am sure this is quite good. 8/3/7/3/15/3.6

Golden. Thin head. Minty, leafy, slightly fruity aroma. Lots of bitterness. Light herbal, fruity hop character. Pale malts provide a little bit of balance. A decent example, not too rich. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2011
Draft @ brewery tap. 24K gold color with nice lacing. Chewy aroma smells big with piney hop. Big juicy body carries the hop well, which remains in the pine pocket. One of the better ones in the lineup. Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle via trade with brokephibroke. Hazy medium orange body, thin clumping cream head with significant lacing. Nose of floral and citrusy hops, caky yeast, breast malts, and hints of alcohol. Dense body, lots of citrus and pine with robust bitterness and a yeasty, toasty body with hints of alcohol. Slightly oxidized. Nice.
