UPDATED: OCT 14, 2013 Rerate at Bierkraft. Deep amber pour - thick white head. The nose is juicy and fresh - a lot of tropical citrus hops and a juicy mango/passion fruit character along with some nice bright bitterness. Fresh and delicious.

Tap at Dive Bar. Incredibly muddy pour. Opaque, muddy pour. Sort of a pale tan colour. The nose is actually pretty bright and hoppy. Lots of spicy pine character. A little bit of rye spice on the nose as well. Fresh toasty character with a nice assertive piny hoppiness. As the beer warms up a touch of light lemon peel works itself out of the back. Fairly resinous bitterness. Pretty tasty brew, despite the ugly pour. 8 2 7 3 15

deyholla (7024) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2011
On tap at Pony Bar. Pours a cloudy gold with an amber hue and a white head that dissipated slowly to the edges and laced. Aroma had a nice combination of citrus rind, bread, grain and light pine with just a bit of grass. Flavor began with citrus rind, grain and slight spice with a nice growing pine note to round out the beer nicely.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Growler. Pours a hazy amber with a nice, off white head. Smells of citrus, spicy, some hay, rye malt. Tastes dry and citrussy with some sagey elements and a grassy finish. The rye compliments the citrussy hops very well in this one.
