COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Exploding with hop flavor and aroma, this citrus/piney/floral ale has enough of a malt backbone to stand up to the intense bitterness.

Travlr (24930) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Tap at Birreria Paradiso. Copper color, solid white head and lacing. Aroma of pine and flowers. Tate is bitter throughout, but not over the top. Tasty.

Tmoney99 (14502) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2010
IBG Summer Fest. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate floral hop and citrus aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy hop bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a very solid beer.

Draft. Medium off-white head atop hazy amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, pineapple. Taste is moderately sweet, pine/grapefruit, some alcohol. Resiny medium-full body. Really should be considered an IIPA.

Drake (13742) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 7, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Total Wine West Richmond, VA. Pours a hazy orange color with a large frothy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Huge pineapple and citrus notes in the aroma with a dark resiny finish. Reminiscent of tar but not necessarily in a bad way. The taste is tropical and citrus hops with a bitter finish. That tar note is here also, and this time it is offensive. Medium bodied. Weird beer.

3.7
BeerandBlues2 (13355) - Escondido, California, USA - JUL 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small, fizzy and frothy white head, medium-short retention with good lacing. Aroma is heavy fruity and floral hops with moderate fruity esters (apricot, peach, pear), and biscuit malt notes. Flavor is moderate hop bitterness and flavor with nice supporting malt. Finish is dry. Medium body, warmth, and heavy carbonation.

3.6
Dogbrick (13036) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2010 Sample at The Royale in St. Louis as part of "The Funk" Tuesday beer tasting. This beer pours a clear amber color with a medium thick foamy light beige head that diminishes slowly. Sticky top ring of lacing with spots underneath. Piney hops aroma with some malt notes. Medium body with a moderately bitter piney hops taste along with flavors of caramel malt and grapefruit. The finish is hoppy with a citrus aftertaste. Above average overall.

crossovert (12937) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 2, 2012
I enjoyed this far more than I was expecting. On tap. Slightly dank and juicy, not hugely bitter, but not too sweet.

12oz bottle-thanks dmac-pours a white ring for a head and dark amber color. Aroma is grapefruit/pine hops, some medium malt. Taste is sweet grapefruit/pine hops with soft bitter, some medium malt. Mild carbonation.

3.9
Sammy (12212) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2013
Fresh bottle from Capone’s. Golden bodied with lots of foamy white head. Strong citrus orange aroma. A high yet not overwhelming delivery of bitterness. Very tasty and drinkable orange with some tangerine, mint, pine. Medium mouthful. Somewhat palate erasing.
