A-Cloudy yellow orange, some carbonation with a one finger head

S-Good deal of hops, mainly citrus and floral. Tad bit of grass and pine

T-Sweet, very citrusy, some floral notes as well, has a tad bit of grass and pine as well. Some bitterness, could have more though. Nice balance though.

M-Medium bodied, nicely carbonated, hop resins.

O-Needs more bitterness, just adding a little bit more in terms of bitterness would make this a great beer.

From 12/29/12 notes. Huge thanks to jslot38 for sharing a growler of this one; been wanting to try it.

a - Pours a murky medium orange-yellow color with one inch of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of oranges, citrus hops, grapefruit, fruity malts, some pine hops. Nice nose; not quite as hoppy as I was expecting but the citrus is very nice.

t - Tastes of oranges, citrus hops, pine hops, grapefruits, creamcicle, fruity malts, earthy notes. No bitterness at all in the taste, and a lot of orange again. Slight step down from the nose, but still really good.

m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation, with absolutely no bitter bite at all. Super smooth and easy to drink, I like the mouthfeel a lot.

o - Overall I thought this was a good beer, though I was a bit disappointed given the ratings. Justin was nice enough to bring back a case of fresh Columbus IPA as well and to be honest, I liked that one a bit better. It smell and tastes good with a lot of oranges and citrus, and has a great mouthfeel, but it isn't as hoppy as I would have hoped for. I thought DC Brau's OTWOA, which we also had that night, was much better. Worth having and would like to have it again for sure, but wouldn't trade the world for it because it is in the Top 100.

Had it on tap a few days ago but review is from my growler fill. Pours hazy orange/yellow, with a lacy white head, healthy head for a growler. The nose on this is amazing, piney, tropical citrus, lemon, bready, juicy, crisp, clean, need I say more? Tastes as its smells, great citrus fruit, not bitter like some DIPAs, so refreshing . It's got a great texture, without being "thick". The finish is so smooth for a DIPA, and doesn't leave you with a bitter finish, just enjoyable. This beer is not over rated, one of the best I've had. They've been talking about bottling this for a while, hopefully it's sooner than later!

Thanks to Justin for sharing this one.

The beer pours a nice hazy orange color with a nice creamy white head.

The smell and taste are good, but a little one dimensional to me. When I taste it I can only think it tastes like an orange cream sickle. It has a nice orange hop presence with the lactose like sweet malts, but really not much bitterness or hop bite at all. A nice feat, but really not too interesting after a while, a nice creamy feel though.

Not bad but overrated in my opinion. I agree with my friend starrdogg that it is too simple to be in the top 100.
