Amber, thin head. There is an earthy, toasty hop character. Sweetish, with a hint of alcohol, The malts are rich, chewy, a touch toffeeish. The hops are orangey, grapefruity, nice dankness to them. The balance works. There’s a hit of alcohol in the finish. Well-balanced. You can have a pint, but only one. Zymurgeist2 (2492) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 28, 2016
Draught at Ale Arsenal. Aroma was forward with citrus, mandarin, and tropical flavors. The alcohol is really present here, and there was a lot of residual sugar that just made this a little cloying as I got through the pour. vyvvy (6996) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 25, 2016
It pours golden with an off white head. The aroma has grapefruit, tropical fruit and big rich malts. It had a full rich body with mild carbonation. The taste starts with with the aroma with a lot more tropical notes and dank hops. Good stevoj (6042) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 20, 2016
Grunt fill from Albertsons. Perfect remedy to a long hot day running a yard sale. Orange golden body with small, tight off white head. Orang-y citrus aroma with some piney resinous undertones. Taste brings the hop bitterness forward, with the caramel malts slipping to the background. Bitter, then sweet. Minor citrus notes at the finish. Hard to believe it’s 9.5%. neepsntatties (2096) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 18, 2016
On tap at Pelican’s new Cannon Beach location. Colour...deep gold with a thin white head. Nose...mashed peach and apricot with melon, lemon zest and crushed hop cones. Palate...full, plush and round with biting hops and dry dusty notes. The 9+% abv shows up mid palate and provides a slightly viscous feel. The finish is long, dry and filled tightly wound hoppy notes.

On draught at the brewpub. The beer pours a clear orange color with a medium fluffy bone white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Medium to full body with flavors of tropical fruit, dank hops and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
