Known as the brewer to ward off evil spirits through beer making, this time extra mojo is achieved with the newest, baddest and most gnarly hops on the market.

Burnt orange in its bright and brilliant pour, the aromatically hopped ale pushes upward with a quickly dissolving zest that gives up its perfume with ease. Citrus and tropical fruits are accompanied with herbal undertones and wrapped in a blanket of caramel and toasted pecan.

Its hop-forward flavors lead with pink grapefruit, orange, nectarine, passionfruit and gooseberry while supporting malt sweetness begins to break apart and recede gracefully. Dried citrus peel and dried apricot sing the praises of the hops and complementary esters as a soft marmalade character pulls forth. Herbal in its grassiness, a tea-like presence also rolls gently on the late palate.

Its toasty-dry finish continues to ascend with bitterness as the fruit and herb shifts to pine resin and acute grassiness. Medium-light in body, its bitterness and alcohol dry the ale with ease in order to close the session crisp, clean and highly refreshing.

I found this beer to be a bit soapy. I'm going to save my other bottle for a few weeks and see if that takes the edge off of it.

I believe over time those that rated this higher will be the outlier. This 12oz bottle was not finished amongst 6 people.

Light copper color. The nose has the requisite hop bitterness but also something else not quite as pleasant. This is a light bodied offering. The hop finish is rather nicely done but I do not think that it is enough to qualify this beer as exceptional.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Look: Pours a really clear yellowish orange. Thin off white head disappears quickly leaving minimal lacing behind.

Smell: Lots of tropical fruits on the nose. Mango, pineapple and a good bit of tangerine. Nose reminds me a lot of PTE.

Taste: Taste is spot on with the nose. Tropical fruits galore. A small touch of alcohol heat present.

Feel: Thin body but extremely crisp and refreshing. Real easy to drink with just a small amount of bitterness on the back.

Overall: A real nice surprise coming from a PA brewery. This thing really reminds of Pliny The Elder. I would constantly drink this if it was more readily available. There was no bottle dating that I could find so im not sure how old this one is. It tastes pretty fresh to me.

12 oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance
Yellow / straw with a short white head that dissipates quickly. Good clarity with moderate carbonation.

Nose
Wintergreen, papaya, pineapple, green florals, and bubblegum.

Taste
Honeydew melon rind, papaya skin, grapefruit zest, and tangerine zest. Pine needles, onion, and flower stem. Lots of dirty dankness.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, crisp, and off-dry with a medium bitterness.

Overall
I was hoping this one was going to blow me away, but I guess it's just not suited for my tastes. There is a lot of onion on the backend that is really turning me off.

Had this on 2014-11-30 in Columbia, PA

A - Clear golden-orange with a 1/2-finger off-white head that fades quickly with lmoderate lace.

S - Overripe peach, mild dank, caramel, pine. Nice but not overly strong.

T - Much like the smell with ripe/dank peach, some caramel, pine, bright citrus flesh and zest. Lots of hop floral, hop spice with a touch tea and pepper. Residual bitterness is moderate and does not overwhelm the malt flavors. Delicious. Complex flavors that are in perfect balance from start to finish. Impressive.

M - Medium+ body and medium carbonation. Substantial. Pretty smooth with just a bit of prickle.

O - This is a really tasty and well-crafted brew.
