Sampled @ GABF! Burnt tangerine color with a small ivory head. Decent orange peel aroma with a bit of caramel. Flavor is quite sweet and a little cloying with honey, toffee, and malt. Hops are present but hide a bit in the background. ABV hidden pretty well. lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2010
Bottled 03/10. Dark amber orange, thick lumpy beige head with thin looping lacing. Good solid backbone aroma, toffee, bready, caramel, apple, overlayed with pine hops, some almost fruity hops. Taste is caramel, apple, some spicy hops, pine straw, nice lingering bitter. Hints of alcohol but no heat. Nice. Itzjerm (2947) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Very malty I would not call this an ipa not hopped at all. Not sweet but front forward malt hops not in aroma nice lasting head not bad more like a 90 minute ipa but no hop aroma SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2009
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours a nice amber with beige head. Aroma of lots of hoppy citrus, caramel, grapefruit. Flavor is malty, caramel, hoppy flavor, nice bitter. Mouth feel is medium-heavy with medium carbonation. overall, very good shit!!!! corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Pours a hazy dark amber/orange color with a two finger frothy white head that has pretty good retention, slowly fading into a lasting ring. Sporadic lacing left behind.
Citrus and floral hop aroma with hints of pine, grapefruit, orange peel and pineapple. Subtle malt backbone with Graham and biscuit.
On the lighter end of medium bodied with a blast of bitter and sweet hops up front that linger throughout into a dry finish. Lots of floral and citrus hop flavor with hints of mango, pineapple and grapefruit as well as some pine needle and a spicy, grassy character. Nice malt backbone that provides balance without overpowering. Hints of caramel, biscuit and Graham cracker. Wellmbalanced and pretty quaffable.

Bottle shared at tasting from wagenvolks. Thanks Drew! Pours orange with a fizzy lasting beige head. Smell is light caramel with grassy, strong hops. Taste is earthy, grassy, hops, nicely dry and bitter. Light balancing sweetness and refreshing and clean. Pretty enjoyable. tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Pours dark orange color with off white head. Leaves plenty of lacing on the glass. Hop hop hop aroma of citrus and some pine. Flavor is a bold malt backbone with the big oily hoppy of citrus and pine. As it warms the flavors become more pronounced. Really a very good beer. durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 25, 2009
22 from Brusin’ Ales muled back from Ethan. Pours hazy amber orange with huge frothy off-white head. Really lovely. Nose shows pretty much equal parts malt and hops... candied orange and pineapple. Also sweet piney resin. Really wish I could appreciate the hops here, but instead of balancing, the malt asserts itself too much. A bit astringent. Not bad, but not my favorite beer (from one of my favorite breweries). dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2010
Dark copper color with a thin bubbly head. Super hoppy aroma, with a slight dried fruit backing to it, somewhat like apricots. It was a good IPA, but it was more like a barley then an IPA, but still a good beer.
