Reviewed 12/31/2012. Thanks to scottk1969 for the bottle! 12 oz bottle poured into a Duvel artist tulip. Notes from last nightís Skins/Cowboys game. A: Pours a hazy golden color with a bit of yeast sediment floating about. The head is a beautiful two finger creamy white head with fantastic, almost Guinness-like texturing. Good lacing is left on the glass. S: The hype train wasnít kidding about this having an amazing aroma. There are tons of tropical fruits - mango, cantaloupe, apricot, papaya - that explode aromatically. I will say, this isnít quite as vibrant as it could have been if it had been super fresh or from a growler, so sadly I canít give it a 5 in good conscience. T: The tropical fruits from the nose come through to the flavor - at first. Initial tastes of melon, grapefruit, and cantaloupe are quickly supplanted by a floral, piny bitterness. Iíd like to see a little more citrusy notes and less piny bitterness, but this is still a great (but simple) IPA. M: Tingly coarse at first, before leaving the palate quickly by a good clean dryness. Pleasant carbonation and drinkability. O: Iíd buy the shit out of this if it were readily available in my area. Honestly, however, I donít know if Iíd seek it out, only because this supposedly falls off fast and hard. Still, this is very much a must try.

Tap @ hotel bar. Hazy yellow with ample cream head. Very floral as the name would suggest. Flavor is very sweet. A little syrupy.

Silvan7 (885) - Samarate, ITALY - AUG 18, 2015
On tap. giallo dorato con riflessi ambrati. velata, schiuma bianca molto fine molto persistente. aroma intenso e complesso, fruttato da lievito, maltato e floreale da luppolo. si va dalla pesca gialla , al caramello al thŤ di gelsomino. secca, ma non amara quanto ci si aspetterebbe. acidula. leggermente tostata. Poco calda, un profilo spigoloso, corposa e di buona carbonatazione. non troppo armonica ma equilibrata nel complesso

Eructoblaster (3395) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 19, 2015
On tap at Generations (Lake Placid, NY). Beautiful, cloudy, golden orange body with a thin white foamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with citrusy, herbal, and flowery hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries malty, citrusy, herbal, and some woody/grainy notes. Ends with a long, robust bitter finish. Very enjoyable.
