Fresh bottle. Pours hazy orange/yellow with tall white head. Aroma is grass, hay, earth, muddled citrus. Taste is a combination of those elements. Some nice malty notes but nothing stands out particularly well. Forgettable. jjgmd (2220) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Bomber with nachos. Pours a dark copper orange pour with a small head. Nose is sweet, hoppy with citrus. Taste is bitter sweet with light citrus, and silky smooth. Finish is sweet, but not over the top, with a moderately long finish. Nice ! Quaff Score 8 / 10 zgaier (1962) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark orange with a beige head and sweet hoppy, citrusy, grapefruit aroma. Taste is bitter up front with nice hop notes and sweet citrus, grapefruit, caramel, and line leading to a bitter, dry finish. Another great one in the ninja series

This was sample at the DArk Lord Day bottle sharing at the Hampton Inn the evening before the event. Orange with white head. Nose of ripe tropical fruit. Medium body. Flavor is mango and tangerine. Bitter day finish. Vert good.. jandd1983 (4544) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Sampled at DLD 2014. It poured a clear orange color with a small white head. The aroma was of tropical fruits, like mango and bright juicy hops. The taste was juicy with lots of tropical fruit notes, a very strong booze backend. It was medium bodied with a slick texture and average carbonation.

Sampled at dld eve. Hazed golden. An off white ring. Oily hops are kind of hard to describe. They marginally work. Kind of a confusing beer. Spices and cat urine. But it is not offensive. jkwood04 (5463) - Connecticut, USA - APR 18, 2014
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours deep amber with an off-white head. Aroma of floral and resinous and piney hops, caramel and pale malts, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not bad at all but not the best for style.
