From tap at the brewpub. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is mango and grapefruity hops. Light bodied with a solid citrusy fruity hops base flavour. Bitter and citric finish. Lasting dry and fruity finish, no sweetness at all.

beastiefan2k (2526) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JUL 15, 2009
This was my favorite beer for the sampler I got at 21st. While everything is hoppy in this place, there is nothing as good as a hop only beer that is 3% (it was listed at 3% on the menu). This is definitely the most hop bang one gets for the abv buck. The brew is a clear dull golden color and has a very sticky lacing. The beer is all clean, crisp, and bitter hops. The malt is almost a non-factor. Long bitter finish, damn the bitterness never goes away. This is the most hoppy beer I have had that was only 40 IBUs.

JohnC (3000) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JUL 10, 2009
I had this on draft at 21st Amendment. I thought this is a very nice example of a flavorful, yet low in alcohol, beer. Dry citric hoppy flavor and aroma, but at 3%, a fine session beer.

On tap at the brewery. This blonde ale poured with a fluffy off-white head and a floral aroma. There is some nice hopping, resulting in a grassy bitter finish.

Tasted at GABF 2008. Gold pour with white head. Yeast, grains, grass and malts. Flavor was the same, although the palate was a bit thin.

DSG (6351) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 30, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2012 Re-rate 9/8/12: Can sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks zvikar. Clear deep golden. Nice hoppy aroma, a bit "green", with pine needles, grass and citrus notes. Dry-ish flavor with light sweetness, a bit of malt anc nice hoppy bitterness with piney and grapefruity hints. Medium-bodied. Good and easy-drinking. 7/3/7/3/15=3.5

(10/27/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in San Francisco. Menu says 3.2% ABV. Clear golden color. Floral hoppy aroma with some citrus. Sweet malty flavor at first with some bread and subdued diacetyl notes, continues hoppy and bitter with some grapefruit hints. Medium-bodied and a foamy mouthfeel. Not bad. 7/3/6/3/13=3.2
