hopscotch (9082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Draft… Lightly hazed golden ale with orange highlights and a small, fluffy, white head. The aroma wafts dankness and cat musk merged with black pepper and orange peel. Medium-bodied with modest carbonation. The flavor is fairly well-balanced. Bitter? Yes, but even more fruity and spicy – apricot and nectarine mingle nicely with multicolored peppercorns. Lengthy, lightly bitter finish.

phaleslu (6397) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Draft at Kickbacks, served in a pint glass. Pours a hazy, dull orange-gold with a small cream-colored head. Aroma of grassy and leafy hops, overripe tropical fruits that have lost some sweetness, and muddled cereal malts. Flavor of citrus, floral notes, cooked pineapple, mixed malts, wood, and grass. Medium-bodied, with a fruity, resinous mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Dry finish. Interesting hop varietal.

BVery (6090) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Tap at Cigar City. Orange pour with a spotty white head. Herbal hop with a bit of earthiness, bitter finish. Good stuff.

drowland (5992) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2013
December 2012. On tap at Kickback’s. Amber pour, more deep orange under the light, with a nice khaki head that sticks and coats the glass. Light fruity hops, caramel, and dank hop bitterness in the aroma. Sweet, fruity hop flavor that reminds me of caramel and melons with lingering pale malts and bitterness. Interesting. Not bad.

markwise (4467) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2012
On draft at Cigar City. Pours a hazy caramel-orange with a white head. Nose is caramel, big citrus hops, and a bit of grass. Flavor follows- a nice new hop varietal with big citrus with some earthy notes and some grassy notes. Medium in body and lingering earthy fruit in the finish.

On tap at the Abbey. Light gold pour with a thick head. Tropical fruit, lemon in the aroma. Clean smooth malt, lemon, fruit and a clean bitterness. Nice hop profile.

On draft at Cigar City Tap Room. Dry but has a nice malt backing to it. Hoppy and slightly floral. Subtle hints of grapefruit. Very easy drinking.
