4 ounce taster at the tap room. Abundant citrus, tropical, grapefruit aroma. Inviting, bright orange appearance with a lot of air movement inside. Taste is very mild in comparison to the big nostril load it initially delivered. Lemon, floral, Sunkist candy. Citra hop bitterness. A wee bit watery and light bodied, which isn’t a surprise in light of the low abv, but it drags down my overall impression because the aroma had me anticipating something more bountiful. My suggestion is that you have this one early in your batting order for the night, because you may not taste it at all after your tongue is exposed to more imposing elements.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2011 Pours a medium brown out of a grwoler with as much off white foamy head as you want. Hop grass aroma. Watery flavor, but hoppy. Feels a bit unfinished, actually. Still a pretty good beer,though. My wife says, "I wouldn’t drink that voluntarily.". Repour from a growler a year later. Next batch? Very hoppy aroma, sweet and fruity. Flavor is hoppy also. I think this beer has been hopped up a bit more, or it’s fresher. I like this beer.

poured from growler into a pint glass. Pours a nice dark orange color with a good head. very nice hop aromas along with citrus and a touch of florals. Very good depth as well Medium bodied with a real smooth feel and flavors of hops, spices, and some citrus. This is lacking a slight bit in the flavors. it’s also very similar to daisy cutter, but a bit lighter. Sadly, it’s not as good as daisy cutter, but still a very nice beer

Clear amber color with a nice thick layer of tan foamy head. Good amount of lacing left around the glass. Aroma is excellent - the citra hops really shine through here (and to a lesser degree the Falconer) and I have to say the aroma is clearly my favorite aspect of this beer. Flavor has some mild bitterness, along with some grapefruit/citrus aspects. Body is a bit lighter than I’d prefer, but helps to make this beer extremely drinkable. I think I’d give Daisy Cutter the slight nod due to its bigger body and more intense bitterness, but this is a tasty varietal and something I’d recommend checking out.

Tried it a the day of the ales 2011 in chicago. It was the better of the two half acre offerings. I really enjoyed it and it made my top ten beers of the event.

Hops really come through on this one. Bright citrus notes fade to a dry mouth feel. Crisp and refreshing without being too light.
