Tap at the perfect pint, NYC. Clear golden pour. Nose has pineapple, grassy hops, and earthy spices. Taste has more off the same - pineapple coming through a lot more prominent. Palate was a little thin and the beer kinda lost its appeal half way through. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rumproasts (2549) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 13, 2013
On cask. Deep amber with no head. Mild sweet malt and not that hoppy at all. More fruit than anything. Not what I hoped for -- i’m quite sure this would be better not on cask.

deyholla (5958) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the Clyborn location. Pours a clear rebuild orange with a tab head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has light earthy citrus with grapefruit and earthy grain. Flavor starts with musty grapefruit with a backing earthy grain note.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Sample at the Clybourn brewpub. Pours a clear reddish-amber color with a medium eggshell white head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is hoppy with fruit and malt notes. Medium body with flavors of grassy hops, tropical fruit and sweet malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Above average overall.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Draft at Clybourn. Pours a deep near-red pour with a sticky white head that falls but sticks around. Nose is cat-piss, citrus and mango, light cherry. Faint toasty malt. On tasting, moderately high bitterness that is also quite clean. Fresh and fruity with some caramel that nearly reaches the "too much" line. Old School IPA for sure but digable.

dinkle50 (900) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Clear red pour with lots of lace. Creamy mouth. Pineapple flavor with a hint of malt in there. Aroma is full of pineapple and tropical fruit.

On tap @ Goose Island 10/18/2012 with Erica. In town for Jen’s and Mark’s engagement party. Dark red-amber pour. Tropical fruit aroma and citrusy hop palate. Grapefruit and tropical fruit are the main flavors. Tasted very fresh. A touch earthy and considerable carbonation.
