Mild hop aroma, golden orange with a small but lingering head.Thick mouthfeel, with intense malty sweetness. The alcohol is present, but not overpowering.

12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazed gold with a white head. Sweet juicy grapefruit aroma, floral, pine, pineapple. Flavor mixes the pineapple and grapefruit up front, again nice and juicy and fairly sweet, floral and pine hops serving as backup. This one's super good.

12oz bottle 6/24/17 (Meijer-Shorts Hoppy Christmas Variety Pack)-40° in Shaker-Pours a hazy orangish amber with a white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, and malt. Taste of hops, citrus, and a bit of alcohol. This full bodied brew hides the ABv fairly well. Nice brew.

Sampler at the pub. Orange gold color large white head, nose is citrus, oranges, grassy, some caramel. Bitter, high carbonation, lingering pine. Slight burn as it goes down. Something interesting and worth a drink.

screigh (770) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 24, 2017
Pours a hazy orange color. No head at all. Sweet and boozy is the main aroma hiding the hops. Grassy and sugary and boozy. Lingering orange flavor.

Bottle bought in Traverse City in November 2016. Fruity but bitter. Grapefruit dominates. One of the best.

3.7
AWISLguy (3368) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2016
12oz bottle as part of a Shorts IPA 12 pack from the local Meijer, had on poker night. Big raw citrus, pine, some garlic. Massive dry hopping. Some caramel malts but overridden mostly by the big hop presence. Definite alcohol presence, finishes bittersweet. 13.8

Very reminiscent of Dark Horse’s double crooked tree. Pale orange out of the bottle with a sticky piney hops presence jumping out immediately. Not obviously a 15% abv brew which is good since those are often a mess of sweet and bitter. A nice beer that opens up as it warms with just a hint of alcohol heat eventually emanating. An even finish despite an immense amount of malt supporting this boat, so this is quite nice. Congrats on 5000 batches!

3.9
ICEatALAMO (1355) - Troy, Michigan, USA - NOV 13, 2016
Bottle. The our is a vibrant golden orange. The aroma is massive hops, orange. The taste is a hop bomb, very boozy. Reminds me a lot of 120 minute.
