Had this on tap at the Buffalo Wing Factory in Herndon Virginia. This one came looking a light amber color with a decent frothy white head that had pretty good retention. The aroma is of hops mainly floral and citrus with some malt to be had as well, very balanced nose on this one. The flavor starts off with an earthy hop feel before giving way to slight bread malt taste. Finish is dry with the usually hoppy bitterness that comes with the style. Mouthfeel is medium and this brew is highly drinkable. It did a pretty good job cooling the flames from the hot wings I ate with it. Definitely one beer worth giving a shot if you come across it.
Serving type: on-tap

3.8/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 2.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75
A 12 oz bottle. No "bottled on" date. Purchased February 5, 2013. Beer foamed out of the bottle upon opening. A healthy pour into a pint glass.
A - Honey colored and slighty cloudy pour. Lots of carbonation. Huge white rocky head. Excessive foam.
S - Resin, some sweet floral, citrus, nice grapefruit.
T - Hop up front, hop in the middle, hop on the backside.
MF - A little effervescent. Dry.
O - This was the beer that made me realize how much I loved hoppiness, but it is not the beer it was ten or even five years ago. The beer is still above average, but I can no longer drink it since it is just a shell of its former self.

an opaque orange in color with 2 fingers of fluffy white head... slight over carbonation.
smells of sweet malt and subtle grapefruit, hint of strawberry. a weird tasting beer.. hints of caramel, banana, earthy bitterness.. just really off taste throughout.. oxidation maybe. medium body, moderate carbonation (which is weird because of all the over fizz during the initial pour).
a little bit odd of a beer.. not sure what they were going after. it's a murky orange, off-tasting, and slightly over carbonated. either i got one hell of a terrible bottle, or this is just not a good beer at all.
