ROGUE (2086) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 5, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a clear orangey copper color with a two finger sticky white head that lasts. Aroma of grassy and citrus hops with toasted grains and sweet malt blended nicely with a mild alcohol presence. Taste has big resiny and leafy hops up front, grapefruit citrus flavors throughout, along with a mild tart middle and a sweet and tart finish. Medium bodied, crisp, with an edge to it, and moderate carbonation. Excellent representation of the style.

Nickls (1765) - SE DC, Washington DC, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Tap. Half-finger white creamy head, lightly hazy coppery orange. Lots of tropical fruit in the aroma from the hops, light grapefruit and slight sweetness as well. Quite bitter, but very fruity with tropical and stone fruit with a lingering hop burn, fairly balanced. Medium to thicker body with tiny bubbly carbonation. Pretty tasty.

nuplastikk (4123) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Growler from cask shared by YGTBSM94. Mellowed out carbonation, no real head. Hazy honey orange-brown. Clean, smooth hop tones. Some tropical action. Very nice beer, well balanced, but still hop forward as per style. The body has diminished in the growler, but the flavor is still excellent. Well done!

GT2 (7870) - Carlsbad, California, USA - MAY 16, 2011
Growler- from cask newly filled thanks to ygtbsm94. The pour is not looking so hot losing carbonation quickly after opening- my penalty for getting to the tasting late. It is a flat, clear amber to deep gold with no head formation. Aroma is very fresh, dank hops with big tropical notes like cantaloupe and pineapple and spicy ginger. Taste is fresh, oily, fruity, hoppy, rich. Palate is thicker, warming, spicy. No cloying sweetness, syrupiness or cheesy/old hop nastiness. Really good stuff.

Elwood (2960) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 29, 2011
Serving: On tap at Fireworks. It pours a deep gold color with a small, off-white head. The nose is lighter than expected with lots of herbal hop notes. The flavor has a good bit of sweetness with lots of herbals. It’s medium bodied with higher carbonation leading to a sweet then dry finish. Rather tasty.
