Yeah, this stuff's old but I just had it tonight and darned if it didn't taste great! If you love your beers to be sweet and crushable, then you've found your match here. No hop bite or bitterness to be found here as this was just full of fruit and sugar, reminiscent out of something that I'd enjoy from the Sunshine State, with just a bit of alcohol thrown in for good measure!

Nice pour to this as the liquid was a radiant amber with some honey thrown in for good measure. Quietly luminescent, there was just a tiny bit of sediment thrown in for good measure to give this some visual depth. Plenty of head topped this off and the lacing left behind was quite extensive on the back half of my pint glass. Loads of orange blossom honey, tangerine, apricot, and stone fruit sweetness on the nose as the taste felt like all of those combined, along with just a bit of pine and dankness from the Mosaic hops. Incredibly smooth, this had a slightly waxy mouthfeel and underlying citrus slickness that ensured that it would go down nicely, and easily...

The amount of alcohol was spot-on and easily integrated with everything else that was going on here. Love the two breweries that had a hand in creating this, just as much as I loved the end result. With a full flavor and no sediment to be seen, this was a winner that held up well canning date of 2/15 of last year. Easily among the best beers that either brewery has ever released!

Just shy of clear medium gold-colored beer with a nice creamy head a few fingers high after a center-pour into a pint; left lotsa messy lace coating inside the glass... Big citrus aromas - orange comes to mind - with a pine-like edge... Validated on the sip - a very orange-forward brew, but with some pine resin sweetness and a bit of dank pith... Medium-ish feel, smooth, leaves a shellac on the tongue; moderate to high bitterness, lingering finish... My biggest thing is that I, personally, don't like beers with this much orange, but if you do, this'll be killer for you... features Mosaic, Citra, and Idaho 7 hops, and Valencia orange zest...

Poured from a 16oz can into a speiglau IPA glass.

Look is a dark deep orange bordering on amber with a thick white head.

Aroma is an amazing citrus. Lots of tangerine and sweet honey blossom orange.

Taste is a really sweet tropical citrus. Absolutely delicious.

Juicy juicy smells. Goldfish Burnt Orange hue
Poured into a goblet from can
Very large head, doesn't disapate quickly

BIG taste w/ alcohol burn. Very deceiving after smelling its "friendly unassuming" odor.
It is an 8.6, so it should have some bite.

Try to find it and get a can
