Syrupy, punchy, reckless and a little muzzled. This Rough Draft offering is spiked with hops but still feels like it’s missing a few gears. The color is a nice, bold amber and the nose is pleasant, but the beer itself tastes like it would benefit from a circle of brewers giving it some tlc.
Bottle. Strong orange caramel aroma marmalade juice. Taste is creamy citrus hop flavor. Medium bitterness. Decent but not great. DialSquare (5030) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2016

Nice intense hoppy aroma. Pours a golden in color with a white head. Well-balanced for an imperial IPA, deceptively strong. Slightly chewy body. BeerandBlues2 (13321) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Draught at the brewery. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is sweet citrus and fruity hops, biscuit malt, mango and passion fruit. Flavor is moderate citrus and fruity hops and bitterness, stone fruit, light caramel malt notes, biscuit malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Bottle to glass, slight hazy golden pour. Mainly malty aroma. Thick sweet malt profile balanced by moderately intense hop bitterness. Not bad, not a standout except maltier than most. barroso2501 (66) - Brasilia, BRAZIL - JAN 24, 2016

Light haze on this gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, good fine carbonation. Fluffy malts bring just a trace of creamy sweetness. Hop spice and pine. Marmalade with a suggestion of fresher orange. Finishes light and hop spicy. Decent.
Citrus and pine mostly. Not bad but also nothing special, especially given how much I like a couple of the regular and session strength hoppy beers they do. Marheb (5773) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 12, 2016
(En fût à la brasserie): Des sucres céréaliers se joignent à des agrumes foncées et un bonne infusion de thé asséchante. C’est juteux, peu résineux et très terreux, presque sulfureux.
