Tap at Brown Iron Brewhouse. Pours yellow, white head. Aroma is lots of dank notes, mango, orange, sweet tropical notes, maybe a spot of papaya. Flavor is dank orange, mango, tropical notes. Really good. ebone1988 (2072) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Aroma is malt, juicy tropical fruit, pine, skins. Appearance is dark amber golden, off white head. Taste is very malty, light tropical fruit, pine, a little funky. Mouthfeel is medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, not real impressed. JaBier (8156) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2015
Sample at Witch’s Hat on 8/9/15. Pours clear amber with a thick off-white head. Aroma of orange, sweet malt, pine and grapefruit. Sweet malt and orange flavor giving way to pine and light caramel before a bitter grapefruit finish. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy orange almost red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of nice grapefruit, orange, citrus notes into a bit of bread, some more caramel, malty notes than the regular with a hint of tropical fruit as well. Taste was mainly grapefruit, orange, and citrus peels, some tropical fruit, hints of biscuit, bread, finishing fairly bitter, slightly dry. flatmatt (1604) - Northville, Michigan, USA - SEP 13, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clouded orange amber with a white hit. Tons of pine aroma, bordering on spruce due to its heft, leading into grapefruit. Flavor is a bit more even between the grapefruit and the sticky pine. Very nice. So much pine!

Draft - Lots of fleshy grapefruit and nice sweetness. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Well balanced grapefruit and sweetness, with a long bitterness. Grapefruit is king and it is well done. koleminer20 (3840) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAR 26, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. The pour is a very foggy coppery gold with a nice white head and some great lacing. The aroma is very hoppy, with a good citrus note and then WHAM! The smell is reminiscent of my dirty hockey gear. There is a definite skunky character on the back and that I am not fond of. The flavor is incredible. There is a beautifully sweet malt for a second, and then there is a beautifully orchestrated assault of citrusy hops on the tongue. The bitter hoppiness is so damn good. The mouth feel is very good; not overly thin, but not creamy. The carbonation is medium and great, and the bitter citrusy hoppy aftertaste is longed for in a good double IPA paintedmaple (671) - People’s Republic of Bloomington, Indiana, USA - SEP 2, 2013
On tap...I expected this to be oily and bitter, however just the opposite...clean hop flavors and aromas with a nice malty sweetness to balance. A rather creamy and smooth mouth feel with complex green grass, citrus, and conifer notes. Very good. Unclerudy (12) - white lake, Michigan, USA - AUG 2, 2013

Draft at the brewery. Bright golden orange with a medium white head. Citrus pith and hop aromas. Citrus, resin and some thick grains. Medium/heavy body. Really smooth.
