Had this on-tap at Pinocchios in Media, PA. The beer pours a cloudy, hazy amber with a healthy two-finger, off-white head which dissipated to a coating. Lacing was ample and lasting. The nose is citrus, as you would expect (especially orange and grapefruit) but there were floral and pine notes as well as some pepper. The taste was sweet with honey, mango and peach predominating but with plenty of hop bitterness to balance it well. This single hop is not replete with one of those super bitter finishes. Mouthfeel is medium with ample carbonation. There is very little hint of the 10% ABV, so beware. All-in-all, I liked this. Flying Dog has made a brew that was refreshing and I would go to it again.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottle into glass
A - Clear golden color with a medium sized off-white creamy head with good retention, slowly recedes to a thin film on top. Leaves heavy lacing
S - Orange, Grapefruit, booze, light malt
T - Grapefruit and lemon, then orange, bread, alcohol bite, sweetness, and a little caramel malt, got very boozy as it warmed
M - Heavy and creamy mouthfeel, moderate/low carbonation
O - An interesting and enjoyable brew, a little on the sweet side. Began to taste a lot like booze as it warmed up
