Ratebeer #1,000 woo! Draft sample at Cherry Blossom Beer & Wine fest, clear golden-amber color with off-white head. Aroma notes of strong citrus/pine hops, tropical dankness, somewhat earthy balanced with caramel malt sweetness. Taste carries on the hop punch of the nose; grapefruit, resin, herbal and almost putrid earthiness balanced with malt graininess. Medium body, low-moderate carbonation, oily, dry with long lingering fruity/earthy hop bitterness. Very tasty.

Cloudy orange color pour with booming milk-white head. Lovely aroma of citrus, hop, malt, pine, spices, yeast. Warmth from the alcohol but its nearly undetectable. Nice. Hop and citrus balance, pine accent.

On tap at Palmer Place in Lagrange, IL. Orange amber brew with off white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit. Taste was moderate malt at the start with a hops profile that matched the aroma. No complaints here.

12 ounce bottle. Hazy deep gold color. Foamy white head. Caramel malt nose with a wonderful fruity citrus hop character. Smooth toasted malt flavor. More citrus hops. Medium body with a creamy soft mouthfeel. Finish is brief but pleasant. Well balanced and very drinkable.

Bottle. BBE date Oct 2016; Drank Sept 2016 - Hazy Orangey Gold in colour. Large foamy off-white head. Fantastic lacing. Very Fruity; zesty grapefruit and orange citrus, peel, rind. Hoppy; resinous piney hops, dank and rather herbal. Spicy; mildly peppery. Malty; bready malts, caramel/toffee. Good fruit/hop/spice/malt balance. Bittersweet citrus fruity hoppy throughout. Assertively bitter fruity hoppy and dry into finish. Excellent considering so near to BBE date. Enjoyed this. Good stuff. Solid IPA! (2016-09-29)

Very light orange in color. So much so that it appears to be a light ale. Little white head. A strong hop aroma. A citrusy hops but a light flavor.
