Very strong odor and also very strong flavor. One of them clearly the best beer I ever drank. Good taste and air and does not make me disappointed. 10% makes no difference.

Pours a clear copper color with huge white frothy head and tons of lacing. Aromas of citrus, floral, but grapefruit comes thru strong. Taste is nice light bitterness that grows stronger throughout with a light sweetness. Lots of carbonation with long, dry finish. Overall, a great tasting beer. Not overly complex, but the centennial hops just brings such great aromas and flavor. Very well done.

From bottle. Pours golden and clear with small head. Aroma was a fruity lemon punch. Taste follows by adding a small sweet backbone and a clean bitter finish.

Lovely brew. Thin white head and some skimpy, lasting lace. Bright, copper hued ale. Lovely, spicy, piney, citrusy,fruity and resiny nose. Body is tame for the abv. but really mouthwatering and juicy. Lotsa hops, earthy and fruity, fairly bodacious with a mild malt backing, just the ways i like,m! Groovily fruity, tropical finish with a lesser than expected bite but still very nice indeed. Bottle from statelineliquors.

Draft at Paradiso Georgetown. Clear golden color, solid white head and lacing. Aroma of grass > pine. Taste of hops and scallions. Nice hoppy kick without being overpowering.

On tap @ Bulls & Bears. Poured a sightly hazy orange/bronze color with a small but thick pillowy white head. Nice lacing as well.
Aroma is one dimensional but a nice citrus hop smell throughout.
taste is moderatley sweet. Orange and grapefruit flavors. Hoppy and a bitter finish.
It’s chewy with a resiny finish that lingers with a bit more bitterness than the first few sips.
I like this better than Flying Dog’s Simcoe but not quite on the level of the El Dorado.
