A: A standard golden color with perhaps a hint of orange and a fluffy white head. S: The grapefruit and lemon rind hops, along with a burst of pine and pineapple, make this one a real pleasure to sniff. T: A moderate bitterness on the palate followed by some really juicy fruits. The grapefruit, lemon, and pineapple flavors are quite fresh and delicious. M: Medium in body with a pleasantly tingly carbonation and a lasting bitterness. D: I never would have known this was almost 9.5%. Really easy to drink and incredibly flavorful without any perceivable alcohol.

argo0 (11823) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 17, 2009
(12oz bottle) Medium off-white head that leaves nice lacing atop clear light amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, pine, grapefruit, light peach. Taste is moderately sweet, intensely bitter pine/grapefruit, some alcohol. Soft medium-full body, some chewiness. Not bad, but more maltiness to counter some of the alcohol would really improve this one.

bhensonb (11809) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 27, 2009
Bottle from Archer Liquors. Hazy ripe peach color with a bubbly, creamy white head. Lots of floral and citric aroma. Medium body, or slightly less, with quite creamy carbonation. Flavor is burning [citrus?] hop. I think there’s a malt backbone. The edges of my tongue get a tingly burn. It’s really fresh. Some resin comes out. It’s smooth. It’s bitter. It’s very, very good.

Koelschtrinker (11537) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 25, 2011
Karamelliger und grasiger Hopfenantrunk mit deutlichem Hefeanteil, auch die Bitterkeit ist angemessen vertreten. Der Hopfen ist hierbei äußerst scharf und wirkt in seinem frischen Status angriffslustig und stark aromatisch, neben der Bitterkeit blendet er aber auch eine angenehme Herbe ein, die den Hopfen dumpfer erscheinen lässt, als er eigentlich ist. Leicht nach Melonen, ausgewogen, ab dem Mittelteil sehr leicht. Die Bitterkeit ist so gesetzt, dass der Hopfen sie meist verdeckt, somit ist das Bier zudem süffig und erst zum Edne deutlich bitter. Gleichzeitig ist das Bier hier aber auch am aromatischsten hopfig, leichte Zitrusnoten sind neben grasigen und blumigen Noten erkennbar, außerdem ist das Bier leicht erdig. Ein Bier, wie ich es mir wünsche! 9/13/12/13/11/13

Christian (11392) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2009
Cloudy orange with a small white head. Perfumed citrus and pine aroma with a little orange peel and some biscuit maltiness. Sweet malt and juicy citrus flavour. The hop flavour is really intense and there is a lasting bitterness. Some alcohol is showing

Tmoney99 (11372) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Bottle from Belmont Party and draft at the Dilly Deli. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Heavy sour citrus hoppy aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and flat carbonation. Heavy smooth bittersweet grapefruit flavor with a heavy bittersweet finish of long duration. This is a standout beer and more complex as a draft.
