mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Draft at the Yardhouse, Palisades mall. Copper reddish in color with a nice off white head that left a nice lacing. Hoppy citrusy aroma. Caramel citrusy earthy flavor. Full bodied. Very drinkable. Dry finish.

DocJitsu (1775) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2016
Pours a very murky dark orange-golden with a well -retaining off white head. Malty nose with some hints of hops, but no more. The hop profile expresses a little more in the flavor. Drinks more like a hoppy barleywine. Caramel comes through late in the flavor. Thick mouthfeel.

hopscotch (10708) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2016 Bottle... Hazy dirty-orange pour. The aroma is a mlange of marmalade, candied stone fruits and pine resin. Full-bodied and nearly chewy with adequate carbonation. There are also candied fruits and marmalade in the flavor; balanced by resiny hop bitterness. Trends toward the bitter side of balance in the lengthy finish.

oh6gdx (25552) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 10, 2016
Bottled (backlog). Hazy orangeish golden colour with a mediumsized white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, some nectar and mild tropical fruity sweetness as well. Flavour is quite similar, but also has a nice sweetish malty body to it and a bit of alcohol giving it a kick too. Actually very smooth, yet quite "extreme" in a quite mellow way.

Leafs93 (2176) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2016
Pours copper with a white head. Aroma is resin, floral, citrus and light caramel notes. Taste is bitter throughout with a dry finish. Medium bodied with alcohol well hidden, refreshing.

brokensail (16111) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 2, 2016
​On tap @ Napa Smith. Amber in color with a thick white head. Theres a bunch of orange juice, some tangerine, and a hint of tropical fruit. Bitter pine and grass. A bunch of peach, too. Sort of perfumey. Definitely bitter in the tongue, but also fairly malt forward and sweet. A little bit of that aspirin bitterness. Eh, alright.

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Bomber from trio. Pours hazy Amber with a medium sized head. The aroma has a lot of citrus, juices, very little presence from the malt. The taste has a big caramel sweetness, a bit of grapefruit, kind of malt forward.

Bottle. Ruddy orange, sticky head. Woodsy aroma and a gritty feel. Earthen, hints of furniture oil and chewy caramel. Definitely on the heavy-handed side, even a bit leathery. (#5951, 3/30/2015)
