Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks Ariel. Hazy yellow golden with a huge head. Citrusy and fruity aroma with mango, grapefruit and onion in the nose. Fruity hops flavors, crispy bitterness and quite dry. Nice.

Can at Ale Alpharetta, from Trey. PAle yellow color, with a thin, grey head. The aroma is straw, pine, resin, and caramel. Sweet, and very bitter. Light to medium body, sticky, and powdery. I think this can might’ve been a little old, but still a solid, hoppy beer.

Cybercat (3333) - Georgia, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Pours a hazy apricot with a thin white head. Fruity aroma has a pine-wood hoppy overtone. Flavor is fairly hoppy and fruity, more IPA than PA, refreshing and only slightly bitter. Texture is firm and lively. An ale with substance.

DSG (5827) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 17, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Ariel. Clear golden with a white head. Hoppy aroma, kinda "green", with nice fruitiness, weed and some cat piss. Flavor is quite dry with "green" and fruity hops and nice bitterness. Medium-bodied.

Can picked up through friends of Chuck's: pours light straw, fluffy bright white head. Nice lacing. Nose is fruity, tropical citrus, west coast hop resin, pine and grass. Light to medium bodied, crisp. On the tongue, tropical fruity hop resin, light bread malts, some tea. Lingering bitterness on the finish. I'd drink this all the time ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the thirsty pig in Portland, ME. Very pleasantly surprised. Super crisp and hoppy on the nose. Flavor is equally robust, with a somewhat flat finish. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells of citrus and pine smooth drinking with a hop mouth feel throughout nice light golden color.

Can thanks to Nick! Shared at Aces and Ales. Pours cloudy straw gold with a white head. Aroma is dank, tropical fruit. Taste is white bread backbone with a touch of caramel and pineapple hop leading to pine hop resin in the finish.
