5000 (6625) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Cask @ Brouwer’s Café:   Pale golden, faint haze, moderate to large frothy off-white head, fairly sticky lacing.   Fairly fragrant nose, hops, pine, a little citrus.   Similar tongue, bright but not green.   Very smooth for being 8.5%, almost too smooth!   Not overly abrasive, not a malt bomb, well balanced, but more like a 1¾ IPA.   I will say, that because it is so smooth, clean, and not the biggest IIPA, it would be really easy to drink multiple of these.   Good good, I finished my glass too soon!

Rating #1930 - 2015.09.25 #CraftTakesSeattle Day 2, Beer 29 - Pours a hazy copper amber with a fairly frothy head. sticky lacing. Aroma is mild grapefruit, peach, lots of piney floral aroma.Taste is mild sweetness (citrusy, piney, floral) and a dominant lingering bitterness - cookie dough, caramel malt character really brought out, really resinous and sticky in the finish.

BelgianBeerGal (3838) - Panama City, Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2016
Can from Full Throttle Bottles. Huge aroma of sweet grapefruit hops. Big flavor with moderate bitterness and almost a syrupy sweetness too. Unfortunately it finishes with a significant hit of raw alcohol/booziness. Okay but not well balanced.

teamsale (178) - Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2016
On tap, says infused with lime, ginger, and basil. Pours a fairly cloudy wooden gold with almost no head and minimal lacing. Smells of citrus and pine cone. Tastes crisp, with sharp citrus flavors. Sweet like a lime is sweet. Medium bitterness. Has a creeper aftertaste, initially mild but grows to a borderline harsh.

maxwelldeux (4348) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - AUG 4, 2016
*Reviewed from notes* Nose on this one has some really nice floral and resin notes to it. Taste is bitter, but smooth. Really comes off as fresh, with a pleasant crispness to it.

Pours a muddy gold with modest foamy head and some lacing. Aroma is floral, with done grapefruit, pine, lemon, and biscuit. Taste is initially sweet, but quickly becomes bitter as the hops and citrus comes to play. There is some peppery, earthy spice. Medium bodied, with a lingering syrupy mouthfeel. Pretty good.
