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.

drowland (6156) - 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.

jbruner (2489) - Athens, Georgia, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange on tap with frothy white head that dissipates to leave light lacing. Aroma of earthy and grapefruity citrus hops. Taste follows, lots of the hops with a slight pale malt back. Well balanced and easy to drink.
