Poured from a bottle, San Diego. Pine hop and malt aroma, light body and medium head. Aftertaste ranges from cereals to soap. Easy drinking for nearly 10%. Sweet malt and piney hops. rbrazell (1763) - Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Draft at Proof. Deep golden pour with a white head. Sweet kind of sugary, boozy aroma with caramel malts and pine hops. Sweet, syrupy maltiness, caramel, piney and hint of lemon bitterness in the end. Meh. DialSquare (5131) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2013
On tap at Proof upstairs. Deep orange pour. Citrus and caramel malt aroma. Well rounded, resiny, orange peel, citrus, malty. jbruner (5287) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Pours a clear golden orange on tap with fluffy off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of strong caramel makes that lends itself to booze, then a slight resinous west coast hop. Taste follows, bittersweet finish with no real hint of the boozy smell. Decent, but nothing exciting. NikkTwist (3345) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Draft at Good Dog. Hazy orange pour. Tight foamy white head. Spritz of lace at the top of the glass. Hoppy floral citrus aroma. Feels like a big dry hop bomb. Tastes of tangerine peels, celery stalks, grapefruit pith, vanilla caramel, green peppercorns, dill, sage, straw, and burnt apricot pits. Juicy but also very bitter and dry. Missing a lot of darker elements but the nicely overhopped bitters bring the level up without needing malt sweetness.

Aroma is muted but sweet and a little hoppy. Appearance is off; color is right, but head was tiny. Taste was sour and a bit bitter, but not from hop. Finishing taste was sour with some stale. Palate was lacking carbonation, but a nice texture and thickness. UncleKorm (1337) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 11, 2013
On tap poured a deep golden hue w/ a moderate white head and excellent lacing. Moderate aromas of orange, apricot, biscuity malts, caramel and floral hops. initial flavor is moderate sweet to an average bitter finish of short duration head. Taste is similar to the nose plus piney resin. Medium to full, slightly sticky body, soft carbonation.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy copper orange with a medium creamy off-white head that goes to a thin film and leaves some lacing.drfabulous (8590) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUN 5, 2013
The aroma is subdued - some resiny hops and alcohol.
The flavor is a little sweet malt with a ton of sharp bitter alcohol. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, I remember this being much better on tap. All I get is bland bitter alcohol.
12 ounce from four pack. Am I the first to purchase this in Lexington? I’ll imagine that I am. Big orange pour. Alcohol in taste and nose. Bit malty. Tropical fruit. Hoppy and big. Bitter. Davros (3282) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2013
Pours deep amber with a large, lasting head.
Aroma of pine, fruity confectionery, floral hops and some clean malt underneath. Also some toasty malt.
More interesting malt as flavours along with harsh pine and grassy hops followed by hot booze.
Carbonation could be higher.
