750ml growler. Gusher form the growler. It pours with a strudy white head and is a slightly hazy gold. HEad slowly recedes to come nice alcing. Smell is fresh hop-y. Grapefruit, hop cones, and grassiness in the aroma. The flavor is smooth and grapefruity. Medium to low bitterness. Nice fruitiness, awesome beer.

teorn88 (3274) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2014
Backlog rating. Growler at the Chriso’s May tasting, London. Huge thanks to Leighton for the awsome treat! It pours a rich orange color with a large white head. Aroma is fresh, fruity, juicy, dank, with notes of melon, mango, grass, citrus peel, grapefruit, light caramel, weed. Taste is again quite sweet but well balanced, danky, grassy, citrusy, balanced, intense, fresh. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, standout beer by a mile

rodenbach99 (3301) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2014
Un growler 8,4%. Un robe jaune avec un nez superbe d’agrumes. Une bouche facile, rafraichissante, longue et savoureuse. Difficile de faire mieux dans le genre. Des pamplemousses..c’est bon.

SlovakSniper (3388) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 3, 2014
Version à 8.4%. Doré est ce liquide qui sort tout droit d’une bouteille de 75 cl. Magnifique tête blanche qui s’ essouffle trop rapidement. Nez de pamplemousse et de houblons encore bien verts et herbacés avec un soupçon de vanille et une levure funky. Goût de pamplemousses juteux. C’est impressionnant. Alcool imperceptible. Corps sculpté pour les grandes soifs. Finale amère d’agrumes blancs avec une pointe sucrée semblable à un ananas bien mûr. Si facile à boire.

Aroma of strong citra and pineapple in the forefront, with orange peel, resinous hops, grapefruit and a light nice caramel malt hiding in there. Flavor is over light sweet and heavy bitter.

Orange pour, creamy white head. Nose is big pineapple, fresh water, grapefruit, minerals. Taste is big pineapple, so clean and fresh, minerals, floral hops. Palate is so crisp and clean, nice sticky body. The best IIPA I’ve had besides maybe Abner.

750 ml fill bottle purchase by LadySusan at the brewery on August 21, 2014. Yellow cream, medium head. Green hoppy aroma, notes of grapefruit zest. Mineral grapefruit taste, dry hoppiness, nice bitterness. Better than Mambo #5, Five Alive and Channel #5 combine!

dramage (2) - Ghent, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2014 does not count
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2014 750 ml growler (Best consumed by AUG 30 2014) thanks to BoBoChamp! Pours cloudy orangeish with a white head. Aroma is very pleasant, mostly on grapefruit and orange but also some passion fruit, pine resin and it is a little dank as well. Flavour is quite the same. Tons of grapefruit, spruce and resin and some tropical character. Light grassiness. Finishes with quite some bitterness and noticeable hop oils. Overall the beer is very citrus-fruity. Body is medium. Silky mouthfeel. Very solid indeed!
