12oz bottle pours with a clear gold body that supports a thin white head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet malts and resiny pine hops as well as faint floral hop notes around the edges. The taste has a pleasing mix of sweet malts and bitter resiny pine hops that run headlong into firm floral hoppiness. This is nice drinking stuff where there’s a tasty balance of bitter and resiny hops as well as malt sweetened flavor hops.

Eructoblaster (3366) - 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.

skmikeg (1327) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Pours bright orange with a one finger off white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of floral hops, citrus, pine, herbal hops, toasted bready malts, and light sweet malts. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, medium-long finish.
