Growler from imstilltheGman... Murkey, cloudy pour.....looks like a wheat ale???? Small head that faded quickly. Nose of grapefruit.... Taste is fruity... tons of grapefruit. Kind of one dimensional. But still not bad. Medium to full body...Alcohol is hidden well.. Super smooth.... Overall: Good stuff

75cl growler courtesy of Dfroms, thanks Dan for bringing this to Belgium. Dorée sur un léger orangé trouble, col est épais crémeux blanc voire blanc-cassé. Arôme offre un bouquet très plaisant au niveau des houblons, retrouve des effluves fruitées alternant vers le pamplemousse, touche de tropical et autres agrumes, le tout semble renforcé par un rétro de pin finement résineux. Palais met bien en avant un caractère résineux qui est juste phénoménal. Pin avec une petite pointe d’alcool malgré les 7.6%. Herbacé avec une note finement aigrelette de pamplemousse, sec en fin de bouche, herbacé, pointe épicé et un malté restant plus en retrait.

Thanks to Bytemesis, this bottle poured cloudy lemon yellow with a thin white head and lacing. Aromas of citrus, grapefruit, floral, and toast. Flavor is mildly bitter. Tasty.

On tap at Mad Taco. Originally reviewed 7/16/2013. Hazy yellowish orange. Nice white head. Good lacing. Bright orange hop aroma. Slightly sweet. Some grapefruit. Grainy. Lots of citrus hop flavor. Reminds me a lot of Heady Topper. Orange and some grapefruit. Grainy texture throughout with less sweetness than I expected given the nose. A bit of bitterness in the finish. A little on the heavy side. Medium carbonationand a bit creamy. My favorite in the series thus far.

DesertDevil (673) - Arizona, USA - NOV 11, 2015
Fresh growler. The subdued nose features mild hay, pine and floral hints with a spicy hint nearly hidden beneath. Semi-occluded light lemon color. Juicy tangerine bites initially on the taste with pine resin, mild alfalfa and a strong grapefruit juice bitterness to close. The bitterness is quite assertive but the juiciness evens it out. A delicious DIPA.

dmac (4958) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 5, 2015
Draft at W.o.R’s. Poured a slightly cloudy dirty straw gold with a dense white head. Aroma is dank hop resin, cat piss, dry citrus. Flavor is similar but a step up, awesome actually, notes of dank hops, light weed, rotting citrus, cat piss and tropical fruit. Awesome beer.

Dr_Fellini (984) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - NOV 3, 2015
Draft at Hill Farmstead. Pours a nice yellow light orange color with an off white head. Aroma is a bit more mild, but could be because I had Abner right before. Nice juicy fleshy fruit hop flavor. Excellent body without any bitterness bite. Very well done.

_angst_ (3819) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2015
Growler received in trade. Pours very hazy orangish yellow with a rather big frothy white head that leaves some thick sticky lacing in the glass while dissipating. Smell I fruity with crackers, white bread, grapefruit juice, pink grapefruit juice, kumquats, freshly cut grass, pine needles, minerals, bergamot and lemon zest. Taste is tiny sweet, bitter and fruity. Mouthfeel is soft, round, tiny astringent, very tiny boozy and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with crackers, white bread, several different kinds of grapefruit, star fruit, freshly cut grass, pine needles and lemon zest. Mouth-smacking grapefruit goodness. Clean and great! Yummy!

Marsiblursi (3070) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2015
(Bottle) Pours hazy orange golden with an off-white head. The aroma holds boat loads of spicy grapefruit with undertones of resinous wood and a touch of tropical fruits. Tight cracker-like malt, some bread. The flavour is dry, medium to heavily bitter with a light to medium acidic profile. Mostly grapefruit and cracker-light malt. The mouthfeel is tight but soft with a medium carbonation. Lingering grapefruit taste. Medium bodied.
