look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Clear yellow color with a nice foam in the small nonic. Big aromatics of peach nectar with pine. Sharp with hop oils. Orange peel, passion fruit, and apricots fermenting. Fruity and sudsy.

Sweet and sharp. Hugely flavorful, but it's all about the hops. Powerful alcohol flavor and plenty bitter. This is the tastiest combination of pineapple and grapefruit. Another impeccable beer from Eagle Rock. A slow sipping brew to give the tongue time to recover. Got to get another bottle to savor later, even at $12.49 from Bine & Vine in San Diego.

Lovely rich orange color with a nice white head that unfortunately looks great and then fades fast.

Nose is all rich cooked lemon hops and quite pleasant and inviting.

Mouthfeel is rich, creamy and bold.

Taste is full on big cooked lemon; sweet lemon filling with hints of unsweetened hops/lemon tones.

Finish is burnt orange but pleasant.

On tap at the Better Weather Fest at Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a slightly hazy orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and some tropical fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with an alcohol kick on the finish. There is a medium hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with some great citrus and tropical fruit aromas and flavors.
