Let me just start with these words, ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME. Bottle. pours a copper bronze body with a light mostly white head. Huge hop aromas, pine, grass, pot, light citrus and grapefruit. Fresh as fuck, i feel like iím chew-in on all the above. Dank herbal fresh cut grass. Prickly fresh hop tones, really sharp cut white grapefruit. I wish it wasnít a 24$ sixer but that didnít stop me did it. In-fuckin-credible.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from Caponeís 4Q 10. Pours medium copper with 3-finger uniform off-white head. Nose is tropical fruit, heavy hops, resiny, with navel orange and black pepper notes. Tastes very complex, very hoppy, with heavy resiny sticky hops, black pepper, mango, tangerine, and floral yeasty notes. This one is super smooth, complex, extremely hoppy, and absolutely delicious.

When I cracked this open I immediately thought of Denmark. Donít ask me why.
This is one of the best beers Iíve had in a while. Very well thought out. The balance of sweet, candy-sugar tickles and mellow but fragrant hops is just right. Itís decidedly moreish which suits its goals admirably. I wish I had a case.

This is delicious! Like crazy good.
Plenty of hops, some nice malty ... a perfect balance. It was reminiscent of Matt & Phins which was a favorite of mine. this is up there now as well.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2010 Growler. Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a super thick foamy white head. Appealing floral hop aroma with some pine undertones...really nice. On the first impression, the flavor is very unbalanced - all delicious hops, but a bit thin. Further sipping reveals a lightly sweet malt foundation that in no way overwhelms or distracts from the beautiful display of hop flavors. Really, really good. I wish there were more beers like this: refreshing, and highly drinkable without compromising the flavor.

Pale orange pour with a frothy white head. Aroma of pine, grass, herbs, citrus rind. Flavors are dry and bitter, pine and grapefruit notes over a very dry malt. Light body, well carbonated and finishes with a lingering bitter/dry punch. My god this stuff is good, if this was available in six packs for a more modest price Iíd buy it like crazy. In a lot of ways it reminds me of Victory Prima Pils which is by far my favorite session beer.

Bottles. Hazy golden pour with some nice white head. Tropical fruit, pine, grassy aroma. Full flavored with a nice crisp finish and appropriate body. Great beer, although doesnít have long shelf life. Still see some bottles on the shelf...

These are old notes of when this was fresh. P:Bronze with a nice white head. A: Pine, grapefruit and grass notes. T: Know this is where it got me. Big ass hop bomb, pine and grass, mango, white grapefruit, herbal nots and a bit of sweetness from the malt. O: this has to be brewed again and I want to see this in cases. Would also like to reviste and see how I would feel about this one today as my palate has also grown since this was brewed.

I picked this up at Archer Liquors in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on a Saturday afternoon while watching Big Ten football and sitting next to my new, sleepy kitten. Aroma a fantastic balance of malt and hop with hints of citrus. This is a prevalent aroma, very robust and bountiful. Appearance is a somewhat cloudy gold/amber with a pronounced head. Taste is fantastic, the balance between the malts and hops is outstanding with a heavier leaning on the citrusy hops. A little fruity as well, Iím getting a small hint of grapefruit. Mouthfeel is unreal, completely encompasses the taste buds, very smooth and easy to drink. Would pick this up again wherever I see it.
