Scent is grapefruit/orange.
Taste is malty, syrupy feel, slight bitter orange peel.
A ton of flavour packed in this one...
Not bad at all.
Bottle. Orange caramel malt and orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Lightly earthy barley malt and moderately bitter orange peel flavor. Nice - particularly like the malt flavor in this. jcr (2779) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Bottle. Clear, golden body. Fizzy, white head, slowly diminishing. Hop aroma of resin, fresh hop leafs, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Clean, toasted malts balance hops. Resin, citrus tastes.

I had high expectations for this beer. I was let down. When i first tasted this brew I immediately though of what my front yard bushes smell like after the cat next door pisses in them...not good. I am just not a fan of the hop flavors and smells in this beer. I can’t discern any malt balance at all . I am disappointed. Had a Three floyds Alpha king right after...Now were talking a balanced IPA. Don’t get me wrong... I love Upland. Come on Boys you can improve upon this brew of 2012. I have Faith in ya! tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - OCT 24, 2012
