adnielsen (8963) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle @ home, courtesy of Ernesto987. Thanks! Pours a hazy, bright yellow appearance with a white head. Very assertive, onion/garlic, super spicy hoppy, moderate grapefruity aroma. Pretty intense nose. A bit chewy, cracker grainy malty, really potent onion, very spicy hoppy flavor with a bunch of lingering spicy hoppiness in the aftertaste. Ye gods this fucker is one intense hop bomb. Good but maybe a bit too much for me.

MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This floral and citrusy Double IPL is grounded by subtle honeyed cereals for a very personable example.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the clear honeyed blond.
-Mouthfeel is lean and drinkability very high.
-Resinous bitterness rises with every sip, but the juicy hops help weather the blow.
-This is as well-made as their Pilseners, which I appreciate.

On tap at The Reservoir, Waterbury, VT.
