Drake (11767) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Draft at the brewpub as "Saaz Monster." Pours a clear golden color with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of toasted caramel malts with lemony, spicy hops. The taste is big lemon hops, mild caramel malts. Medium bodied.

j12601 (9548) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Pours a faintly hazed gold with a thin white head. Big fruity hops up front, sweetness and melon and some dusty mustard greens. Medium bodied, grainy with a nice crispness and then more sweet melon hops come through. Nothing like what I was expecting, and very pleasantly surprised. Crisp bitterness on the finish, clean and easy drinking.

nimbleprop (7460) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 1, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Comes in a pint glass looking like pineapple juice; almost opaque bright yellow with zero head. Nose is mild, light pepper, light yeast, light hops. Was supposed to be the 2nd hoppiest beer on the menu with 35IBUs. Flavor was bland, wet white bread, light yeast, fake lemon. Watery finish. Not a good start.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6717) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2011 Sampled on draft at D’s in Monroeville this beer poured a dark golden color with a medium sized white head that faded and left no lacing. The aroma was tart, crisp, floral, grassy and a touch perfumey. The flavor was dry and bitter with lemongrass and perfume. The finish was long, dry and hoppy. Light body. Eh.

Strykzone (6717) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 14, 2016
Sampled at the brewery. Mclear holden. Not what I expected from a beer featuring this hop. Lemon and limes. Fruity. I looked for sulfury notes but was surprised to not find it. Really nice.

Beerman6686 (6320) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2014
This one poured a lightly hazy golden yellow with a white head. Aroma was of noble hops, grass and pale malt. Flavor was similar, wish it was a bit more bright and crackery.
