UPDATED: MAY 21, 2012 Keg at Harajuku taproom. Cloudy blond colour small white head. Aroma bitter fruity grapefruit, bit lemon bit of cream and biscuit in there too. But mainly bitterness. Taste very nice and thirst quenching. Lots of fruit lots of bitterness. Very sharp and in your face. Pretty nice.

Soapy head, and a bit cloudy. Well hopped but not particularly bitter, it comes out more in the flavor and finish. A bit bland for me.

Draught at Tadg’s. Big, grassy nose, honey malts, biscuits, orange. Cloudy orange-amber color with lace. Nice noble hop flavor, very grassy, sweet orange. Great hops, with nice, clean malt. Clean and tasty, reminiscent of a good Czech pilsner. Smooth body. Interesting and a lot of fun. Great stuff.

On tap at Tadys pours out a dirty hazy gold topped with a small soap head. Aroma of grapefruit hop juice, sweet malts, and some citrus. Taste was rich bitter grapefruit, sweetness, light melon, with a bitter end.

Bit ah! Too bitter and full on for me - I need some nuance with my hop bombs. Good drinking, but the heaviness of the piney/woody/earthy hops is just too heavy for me. Good idea and defo something different though.
