mymaestro (56) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2013
dark orange with little or no head and no lacing on the glass. Chardonnay comes through, with almost no hop bitterness. is it old?

Lowe1983 (1622) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - SEP 18, 2017
Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is strong of the floral and pine hops. flavor is lighter with some alcohol warming on the finish.

DavidWoodruff (630) - Windsor, California, USA - APR 26, 2017
Orange/gold with a fine beaded white head. Aroma is worty and ever so slightly catty. Flavor is citrus - sweet orange peel. Boozy. Full-bodied. Adequately bitter finish. Drinkable even if a bit chaotic in its presentation.

DocJitsu (2025) - 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.

hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Bottle @ MGM Studios Disney. Poured a hazy golden color with a small sized off white head. Citrus, some floralness, and some stale pine.

hopscotch (11182) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2016 Bottle... Hazy dirty-orange pour. The aroma is a mélange 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 (26487) - 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 (2332) - 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 (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 2, 2016
​On tap @ Napa Smith. Amber in color with a thick white head. There’s 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.

BuckeyeBoy (8293) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 1, 2016
22oz bottle from Napa smith brewing. pours out a copper amber topped with a tan head. nose is big sweet malts toffee and some fruit. Taste is more of the toffee caramel and a nice hop melon.

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.
