Had this on draft at the Pizza Pub. Served in a heavy goblet 10 oz pour. Had a great citrus nose and light golden color. The taste was all citrus. More mandarin orange and apricot than grapefruit. Smooth finish with a lingering citrus sweetness. Very drinkable considering the high ABV. I wanted another one, but the wife gave me the "no go, your driving" look. Would definitely get it again.

Hazy, orange-yellow beer with a three finger high, white, head that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass.

Nose: Orange, citrus, grass, mandarin, orange marmelade, sweet malt, honey and grapefruit.

Taste: Boom! Citrus, hops, orange, grapefruit, tropical fruit, a LOT of hops!

Mouth: Full body with a great malty backbone. Sweetness and bitterness from the malt and hops. A high ABV (10%) that really doesen't show but carries the taste right to your tounge - It's fantastic!

As you can see - I'm in love! This is beatiful!

22oz bottle, bottled 10/914, poured into a snifter

A- pours a hazy, thick looking golden orange color with a foamy and sudsy white head that retains nicely long after the pour, leaving some lace behind

S- big blast of citrus hop aroma with notes of grapefruit peel, tangerine & orange pith. Notes of dried grass, before a slight bready malt aroma kicks in, slightly spicy on the finish

T- as with the nose, citrus hops hits first on the palate, flavor of orange pith, grapefruit peel and tangerine. Notes of pine and grass kick in with a rye-like spicyness. Big sugary sweet malt notes kick in to balance the hops, more citrus with some booze on the finish

M- heavy and viscous body with medium carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel and a chewy finish

O- citrus loaded yet remarkably drinkable
