3.74/5 rDev -12.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Had a full pint of this at Churchkey during the Craft Beer Conference 2013.
A: Poured a crystal clear orange color with a pretty substantial frothy head. No real chill haze, this was clear as a bell.
S: Smelled like Nugget Nectar only a bit more grainy. The hops were present but not explosive like I was predicting.
T: I didn't get much of the FFF hop profile, as a matter of fact, I didn't get any. This was a bit heavy handed on the sugar end but not too offensive, with a bit of candy-coated booze.
M: The carbonation bill was fine, overall the sugar level started to grow on me, and the lacing was substantial.
O: I would definitely put this in the good category, but the idea of the beer was much better than the end product. To come full circle, this was basically Nugget Nectar a little past its prime.

4.36/5 rDev +1.9%

Pours a well carbonated and lively glowing amber hue, a touch lighter, some mellow haziness, orange gold bottom and a frothy off-white layer atop films a bit, stays small and laces well throughout. Aromas are oranges and tangerines, some grapefruit, earthy hops and some touches of bready and pale malts, cereal grains. Firm dry bitterness tapers off a bit into the middle of the flavors. Cereal grains, bready, and some gentle sweetness. Fruit sweetness, citrusy orange and grapefruit. Floral, grass, a touch of cotton candy sweetness but not offensive. Backend is citrus juices, grapefruit rind, a firm dry bitterness. There was some lemon, tapering bitterness that seemed to die out in the back finish. A pretty solid IPA, the front end and nose were the winners for me though the malt offering did seem a bit unfocused and interfered that more robust, complex hop profile.
