Draught @ Hayseed: This one pours a hazy, darker golden color. There was a small off white head that left some lacing. Good nose. Coriander, yeast, wheat citrus. The taste is very good. Wheat, yeast, coriander, citrus, touch of bitterness and earthiness. slowrunner77 (12139) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 4, 2016
Didn’t particularly care for the direction of this one - on tap at thirsty monk Asheville south. More like a Barleywine that finishes very very bitter than a triple IPA. Not my style. Malty and bitter without showcasing hop flavor and aroma very well. Can’t believe it’s 97. obguthr (6431) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 21, 2016
Draft: Lemongrass, pencil shavings, honey nose, moderate strength. Cloudy amber, medium yellow head. Grapefruit, tangerine, pencil shavings. Medium body, moderate carbonation. A little stale but still big and hoppy. radagast83 (8111) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 15, 2015
4oz draft pour at Churchkey. Poured a dark orange color with a small off-white head. Aroma was citrus, tropical fruit, light resin. Flavor was of the tropics, with citrus. Floral hops and some light earthy notes on the finish. Boozy finish. Conversations while having this revolved around Ricky Martin and American Idol contestant, William Hung. solidfunk (9009) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Lots of citrus peel and some hint of almond. Pours hazy orange with great head. Very bitter finish. Nice stuff. Tap at Red Apron.

375 ml corked and crowned bottle. Hazy Amber orange color topped by a moderate Rocky beige head. Aroma has notes of treacle, sweet malt and resiny hops.

Location: 375 ml bottle from Winooski Beverage, 7/17/15, Best when fresh: bottled on 2/17/15, I really should have read that before I purchased this beer in July!
Aroma: The aroma is orange, booze, some caramel, other sweet malts, and a little pine
Appearance: The pour is dark orange, a little murky, with an off-white head and drippy lace
Flavor: Tastes a little like an old IPA, but still solid, strong sweetness and a good bitterness
Palate: The body is fairly full, a little sticky, with a smooth, soft feel, and a dry, sticky finish
Too bad I didn’t do a closer examination of the label before I purchased this beer. This store may have a bit of a bottle management issue, as it seems like they let stuff sit a little too long in general. I feel like there was definitely a nicer beer here fresh, sometimes you can just kinda tell, but at this point, it is only okay.
