If you’ve ever seen a growing snake firecracker then essentially, you’ve seen what this beer’s head can do. having poured roughly 1/2 of the 22oz bottle into a pint the head began to grow, and grow, and grow until it began to slowly recede, leaving behind amazing, tight-knit lacing. Strong aroma of yeast, citrus and apricot... taste on the other hand has notes of grapefruit, apple and Zinc. While this beer has an awesome scent and a pretty good taste, I was not as psyched as I had expected to be when pouring and sniffing. The carbonation overpowers the mouthfeel... almost difficult to get a sense of this beer as it doesn’t sit on the tongue very long... rather, dances around not leaving much of a footprint. Overall enjoyable but wish it would settle a little more, perhaps at a warmer temp it would settle on the tongue but overall I am just not a big fan of big carbonation.
Draft. Unclear dark burnt orange. Things aren’t quite coming together here. Jumbled. Hops don’t showcase well. Ok Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Yellow-orange pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor have a lot of orange citrus and toffee notes, with the addition of some grass in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2012

Bottle:   Heavy orangish, thick and hazy, HUGE frothy off-white head (infected maybe?), with nice lacing.   Powdered sugar on the nose, slight citrus and hops.   Wondering if this one is broken.   Yeah, big time powdery sugar and stuff on the tongue.   Has this fake powdery hop flavor that seems to come from beers that have broken down or that are infected.   Was really looking forward to this one.   Will rerate eventually as this is not what was intended.   Bottling issues?   Thanks for the bottle Kevin!

Bottled. A hazy dark golden beer with a lazing orangey head. The aroma has notes of fruits, malt, yeast, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, malt, and yeast. alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAY 16, 2011
Bottle; poured a slightly murky, ruddy amber-gold color with a small to medium off white head. Aroma of citrus, spice, buttered toasted, fruit and earth. Flavor had a earthy, spicy and fruity base. A bit unexpected, but can see the cascade influence. Solid for the style.
