Poured into a pint glass out of a 22oz bomber.
Pours a slightly hazy deep copper with barely a tiny head. Decent lacing though so I give it a couple points for that.
The aroma on this is just out of this world. Tons of citrus in the way of orange and mango with a little bit of pine thrown in. No malt is really detectable but that is ok with this kind of hop aroma!
The flavor is where things go south. The hops are much more muted than I was hoping. Orange and a little pine is still there but in small quantities. There is a sweet orange candy base but no bread or caramel. Mouthfeel is full and smooth and quite sticky to the point of being cloying.
Overall, I'm really struggling to drink this. It is overly sweet, almost syrupy, without a ton of hop flavor. I am really disappointed by this brew.

Pours deep clear orange with a small soapy head. Aroma is breathtaking and one of the best I have smelled on a pale. Deep pine hops, sweet grapefruit, floral, and even a bit of candy caramel smell. Flavor is very sweet and candy like. Not as much bitterness as i was hoping for. No bottle date, so maybe I got it late in the year? Still has the hop flavor though. Candy sweet grapefruit with only a hint of pine. Floral flavor. Thick and syrupy mouthfeel for a 6.6% here. Pretty flat. Good beer, but can't say I wasn't hoping for more bitterness and refreshment. The aroma is there, most of the flavors are there, but something seems slightly off. It is so close to being right. Just falls short of my benchmarks in the fresh/wet syle (Founders Harvest & GD Fresh Hop). Bonus points for the name of this one though.

Found some notes from 11/2012...
@ Tasty Beverage
Slightly hazed deep orange color under some creamy froth. Aromas of spruce, graham crackers, and stone fruit. Deeply fruity hop taste, bold tropical flavors, green stickiness, grapefruit, and peaches. Slightly prickly carbonation, not super bitter, medium bodied, and a bit dry. Hoppy goodness.
