tmoreau (3559) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2016
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co. and snifter served displaying a clear, orangey gold color, with a fluffy layer of soft white head foam, and web-like lacing. The nose was sweet, malty creaminess, with esters as tropical fruit, grapefruit, pineapple, and light resin. Medium+ bodied, with decent carbonation, and a little silkiness to the mouthfeel, the taste added a strong, citrus & rind bitterness, smoothed by a touch of malty sweetness, and intensified by a warming, but non-boozy alcohol presence. Solid DIPA.

vandc01 (321) - North Branch, USA - JUL 8, 2016
12oz bottle poured at home with a bottled on date of 4/26/2016. Was expecting a little more on the aroma side - but the appearance and taste make up for it. Had a great lingering taste...plenty of carbonation. Very solid beer!

koleminer20 (2218) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 26, 2016
12 oz bottle shared by ebone1988 with Gus and I. The pour is a brighter golden yellow with a hefty white head that falls to a bubbly collar. The aroma is pretty malty. I don’t like it. There is a bit of citrus and some hop present, but the malts really are pissing me off. It’s not that great. The flavor is a little better, but not much. Malty as hell. The citrus and juiciness makes it a little more tolerable. It’s just a disappointment all around. The mouth feel is interesting. It’s thicker and carries a nice carbonation but has a lingeringly malty and light citrus aftertaste. Interesting, but not my jam at all.

ebone1988 (1257) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JUN 26, 2016
Bottle shared with koleminer20 and Gus. Bottle date 4/28/2016. Aroma is old. Weird. Malt, citrus, tropical fruit, pine. Appearance is golden amber, off white head, mostly clear. Taste is citrus, a terrible amount of malt, pine, bitter malt. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, bitter malt and pine aftertaste. Overall, severely disappointing for a beer well within the drinking window.

Bogus88 (163) - POLAND - JUN 25, 2016
Butelka 0,65 l. Aromat sosnowy, żywiczny, w tle nuty karmelowe i cytrusowe. Barwa złoto-pomarańczowa, lekko zamglona. Piana obfita, biała, dość drobna. Szybko redukuje się do kożuszka, lekko zdobi szkło. Smak lekko słodki i umiarkowanie gorzki. Karmel, przyprawy, cytrusy, w tle owoce tropikalne. Goryczka żywiczno-grejprutowa, finisz wytrawny. Wysycenie średnie.
