Light Amber color. Big fragerant hoppy nose, grassy with citrus notes. Light body, tons of hops but enough malt to balance things. Aggressively hopped grassy ctirus finish.

"Fresh aroma bursting with citrus, and a hint of pine. Slightly more hop heavy in flavor than your average pale, with bitter and swet dueling it out, but itís light in body and very refreshing. Admittedly, Iím a sucker for Citra hops, but this was nice."

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at brewery. Strong cascade citrus aroma. Sheesh, now I remember why I donít care for this hop. Really seems to dominate. Very pungent all the way through the flavor and into the finish. Very drying. Beer is ok, itís just the hop in large quantities I donít care for.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler shared by Eric at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours rather orange. Lots of citrus rind for aroma with hints of underlying stone fruit. Med body. Flavor is very grapefruit rind - again a little fruit follows. Strange that is not seeming harsh with all the hop. Lots of hop, not harshly bitter. What a concept. Tastes really good.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at dig beer baR. Solid piney nose with a healthy amount of caramel backing. Copper color. Soft bitter initial / hops intensify in mid, and some unusual wet paper notes hit for a second or so / smooth and bitter finish. Medium body. All good, except for that brief wet cardboard bit in mid palate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Dig. Nice fruit nose: stinky mango, tropical, even some durian. Extremely sweaty and funky ass. Deep gold, nearing amber. Soft and fruity flavor, minerals, sweaty fruits, good hop bitterness. Soft and silky. Very bitter. A fun, hop-funky beer reminiscent of over-ripe SE Asian fruits.
