Clean golden blonde pour with one finger of white head. Nose is very floral and perfumey with some notes that are difficult to ID. Jasmine flowers? Ephemeral citrus. Absolutely wonderful. Flavor reminds me heavily of 2 Hearted. Floral and citrus with many fleeting qualities. Dry with a moderate bitterness.

TheJestersBeer (2138) - SWEDEN - APR 12, 2014
Tap @ brewpub. Pours a hazy deep gold, with a white head. Fruity, hoppy aroma, apricot, spruce, mango, rhubarb, caramel. Semi-sweet, medium to full bodied, mid to high bitterness, balanced CO2. Hoppy, sugary taste, apricot, spruce, caramel, peppermint, rhubarb, orange peel. Oddly minty, almost cloyingly sweet. (2014-04-03)

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Part of a paddle at GRBC. Appearance: The best looking one on my paddle, for sure. Nice head and lacing. A golden color. Smell: Well, fortunately, no fish here. Not as fruity as I was expecting/hoping. Citrus I suppose, but this one’s rather piney. Taste/feel: Bitter sort of pine. Not as much depth of flavor as I was hoping. I fairly average IPA that’s missing that sort of "burst" or juiciness of sorts that I like in my IPAs. Relatively one note, with a medium carbonation and a bit of a too light body. Definitely worth a try, but it’s no Two Hearted or Centennial, for sure.

On tap at Grand Rapids Brewing Co. Slightly hazed amber with a slowly fading cream tan topper. Aroma of light citrus, sulfur and caramel. Taste of caramel, citrus, mild hops and a hint of booze. Finishes up with a mild bitter kick.

Tap. Amber with small head. Average IPA. Hops are bitter, but otherwise not real flavorful.
