jackl (3859) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle from Beer Run. Deep gold with a large white head. Big, abrasive grapefruit and pine resin on the nose. Moderate citrus, sea salt. The taste is definitely of the west coast school. More grapefruit. Biting bitter tree root. Soft malt backbone. Medium body, active carbonation. Nice stuff.

Bottle - Lots of grapefruit and tropical notes. Clear gold with a rich beige head. Grapefruit bitterness, malty light sweetness and a clean finish. On the sweet side but still nice.

gyllenbock (4083) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 17, 2014
Sample at The Bistro DIPA-Festival, February 8. Light amber with a white head. This is a nice one, bitter but "balanced". Pineapple, resin and grapefruit. Fresh and really drinkable with a bitter finish.

Dr_Fellini (264) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Draft at bear republic. Pours a clear golden light copper color with anboff-white head. Aroma is phenomenal. Tons of fruity goodness. Almost like a V8 splash fusion. Flavor is on par with the aroma. Fleshy fruit goodness with a moderate bitter character. Light to medium in body. Fruity bittersweet lingers long into the finish. Awesome beer.
