Golden beer with a sticky off white head. Big resiny hop nose with lots of grapefruit rind. Lots of fresh hop flavor with candied grapefruit rind, tropical fruit, peach and tangerine. Some thick caramel sweetness under all the hops. Nice fresh hop beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a dark caramel-brown color with a medium sized foamy white head that left great lacing. The aroma was bitter and tangy with a strong bite of grapefruit and undertones of catbox and caramel. The flavor was very bitter yet tangy and sweetish with a very strong bite of grapefruit and perfume and a bit of catbox underneath. Very long bitter and hoppy finish. Moderately full bodied. Solid.

On tap at Doc Watson’s in Toledo. Hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is fruity citrus hops. Tastes are pine, lemony tea vibe, toasted malt. That’s all the notes I had for this one: 7.2

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 On tap at Mad Mex Robinson. Clear orange yellow. Nice foamy head. Sweeter perfumy aroma. Yes, lots of hops in this stuff. Seems like more than 6% in here. Quite a personality. Some co2, not much. Long bitter medicinal finish, borders on IPA territory. Not impressed.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at The Lackman, served in a pint glass. Pours a clear gold color with a small white head that leaves streaks of lace in the glass. The aroma is way more dank than expected, with marijuana, cat piss, cheese, onion, caramel, and grapefruit. Flavor of herbal tea, citrus, pale and caramel malt, lemon, and leaves. Light-medium bodied, with a bitter, leafy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Really unusual, memorable, interesting APA.

Different from any beer I had. Tastes like sweet candy. Delicious. Don’t really think of hops as a dessert quality but this is great after a meal. Very fun. Wouldn’t get a case though, wouldn’t eat a whole cheesecake either, Citrus predominant.

Draft pour into a pint glass. Pours a translucent copper with a fluffy white head of foam with good retention. Aroma has juicy citrus, light grass, and lemon peel. Taste is fruity sweet, while still being Nigel bitter throughout. Dry finish. Light bodied and supremely easy drinking. Very good beer.

Draft at Mad Mex Cranberry Township. Pours orange with a thin white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Fairly big wet hop floral notes. Massive hop flavor on the tongue. It’s like I just swallowed a grapefruit and pine cone whole. Finishes clean. Very nice!
