On tap at Obriens during Green Flash Night 2013, all anniversary ales rebrewed on tap. This is delicious and easy drinking. Floral aroma with light citrus zest. Straightforward peppery hops flavor with a light malt base. Well balanced throughout with a fairly quick flavor fade. Sessionable!

blankboy (6462) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2015
[Bottle (660ml)] Pours a clear deep golden-orange with a large lasting frothy off-white head. Odd IPA aroma, itís fruity and vegetal along with hops, pepper and caramel malt.. Flavour of caramel malt, resiny piney hops, fruit, alcohol and a long moderate to big bitter finish, Medium bodied. A bit of a miss to me, just good.

hivemind (737) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle from Pioneer @ Jamesís. Pale yellow, white head. Mellow hop profile but still fresh on nose and palate. Not a hop-monster, but good/well-rounded. Bready aftertaste.

jredmond (6073) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle at the half marathon tasting. Pours a clear golden body with white lacing. Mouthfeel is super spicy and grainy. The aroma is not bad - but okay.

TattooJack (248) - Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2015
From the bomber for $5.99(+) alotta different hop flavors, very smooth, and the bitters behind it reminds you that you just drunk a bunch of hops. I would have liked to have the collectable surf board box though.

ajnepple (3129) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - APR 28, 2015
22 oz bottle shared, from Supermarket Liquors. Orange and clear appearance with a white head. Aroma of pine, grass and herbal hops, along with breaded, biscuit-like malts and light citrus notes. Similar flavor, moderate hop bitterness and a light dry finish. Pretty solid, but perhaps a bit dated.

williamherbert (1365) - Syracuse, New York, USA - APR 20, 2015
Light orange color: excellent lacing. The aroma has an incredibly perfumed hop, unique to any other beer I can think of; flowery and fragrant. Whole cone hops, piney and metallic. Flavor is more metal, spicy orange peel/citrus, more perfume/flowers. Definitely a soft flower-petal component. Has a soft, soapy feel to it. No real bite on the way down. Very good, not quite sweet but soft like laundry but with lots of flavor.

snoworsummer (3061) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 12, 2015
From a bottle. Pours hazy amber with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like grapefruit, caramel, resin, toasted malt, and some dry nuttiness. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells nutty, like toasted malt, grapefruit, resin, and caramel.

Bottle. Pours mostly clear golden amber with creamy off-white head. Aroma is pineapple, cereal malts, floral and grassy hops, and faint spice. Flavor is dry and hoppy with great citrus, grassy, and piney notes along with light toast, and a spicy/woody finish. Medium body.
