Sample 6/8 at Snake River Brewing Co., Jackson. Clear dark golden with a small, off-white head. The aroma contains hops, pine, fruits (mango and grapefruit) and citrus. It tastes medium to heavy bitter and light sweet with a dry finish. Medium to full body, slick texture, lively carbonation. Nice balance with the fruitiness.

On tap at the brewpub in Jackson WY. Copper-amber body with high clarity and an excellent, durable white head. Aroma: hops and alcohol esters. Flavor: moderate strength and bitterness for style. Poor hop mix for my taste. Medium body and carbonation.

Orange outta the can. Traditional sticky pine nose with grapefruit undertones. Pretty good overall, medium bitterness.

12oz can - it pours a clear golden orange with a thick pillowy off white head. Good aroma combination of hops and malts....pine, citrus, caramel and a hint of melon. I like the citrus and pine hop flavor that matches the caramely malt structure.
