Tap. Pours a light gold color. Strong floral and citrus hop aroma. Powerful punch on the first sip. A lingering bitter aftertaste builds as you work your way through the beer. Goes down easily. Powerful beer and very good.

Dr.Drei (22) - New York, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy golden with a healthy head. Hop aromas dominate with citrus and hints of pine. The finish is drier than I expected. Overall, this is an exceptional beer that should be enjoyed by hop-heads. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled 355ml. -Courtesy of and shared with Marko, thanks! Cloudy yellow/orange coloured, medium sized creamy white head, mild fruity and malty nose. Moderate malty, fruity hoppy and agrumy with discreet presence of alcohol near the end.

blklab2007 (1964) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle poured a golden in color with a one finger off white head. Aroma has bright hops, citrus, mild tropics, and underlying malt. Mouth feel is medium and the carbonation nice and strong. Flavor is hop centered, dry citrus, grapefruit, creeping bitterness, and a malted core. It smacks at the sides of your tongue and has a lasting finish. This bottle is about a month old and again like there other beers I have tried centers around the freshness of the punchy hops. This is really tasty!

Bottle. Clear gold with a thin white head. Aroma is tangerine, orange and melon. Taste is similar and adds some citrus rind. Medium crisp mouthfeel and long finish. Fantastic.

Ferris (4166) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle - Lots of floral pine and some sweet malts. Hazy gold with a rich white head. Bright up front bitterness, pine and citrus and a surprisingly clean finish. I could drink this forever.

Marko (3932) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 30, 2014
And the last, much much appreciated part of MacBoost’s Boost & Chill package (huge thanks!). Slighty hazy yellow-golden body with a medium sized white head that receded slowly. The aroma starts off with a lovely malty note (which did suggest that it’s not as fresh as it should be, I guess) fighting with herbal and fruity hops, slightly dank? Some notes of caramel pop up too. Impressive. Starts off great too taste-wise, bitter hop-lemon ice tea on some sweetish maltiness. Very very light alcohol... and then, a very positive impression goes just a touch bad as the aftertaste turns out to be abrupt, thin and strange. Oh well, can’t win them all. A great lager that I’ll gladly try again and rerate at some point.

Pours dark yellow with a beautiful creamy head. Aroma: citrus, a little of spices and pine, some flower aromas. Taste: very well balanced and elegant. Although the first hopps attack on your tongue make you think it is an IPA, the not so full body and balance reminds you it is a lager. Hoppy bitterness, which is not too aggressive, with some sweet flour elements. A very original and great beer! Additional points for experimenting with lager as a style. I never thought one can get that much out of it. Additionally, I believe it wastechnically pretty challenging to brew such a beer.

KyotoLefty (6450) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 25, 2014
Taster from Tap at, and bottle from, the brewery. Big hoppy nose. Sweet but balanced malt flavor. Very bitter. Full, soft body. Great citrus and grassy hop flavor. Excellent beer. Drinks like way lighter than 8%.
