Bottle back home with my Dad. Pour is hazy golden with a big white head and great lacing. Big pineappley, lemon peel, soapy, biscuity, doughy, tropical fruity, band-aid, and herbal aroma. Taste is tart lemon peel, soapy, a hint of spicy rye, orange peel, doughy, grassy, pineapple, and peach with a lightly bitter tart finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Really tasty and refreshing.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2014 Bottle. Nice light, effervescent hoppy aroma. Combination of pine and citrus. Light, lively body. A bit of peppery rye spice comes through midpalate. Very drinkable, cleansing the palate instead of coating it with a resiny feel.

smells hoppy with tropical fruits and citrus. Pours hazy yellow with nice white head. Taste is not as bitter as an average ipa. More sweet and tangy with a little bitterness throughout. Overall this is a good beer and should be tried simply for its uniqueness.

Bottle. Pours bright yellow with a white head. Smells very fruity- pineapple, citrus, very bright aroma. Has a very strong elastic brett taste, very bitter finish, resinous hops, hay, herbal. Medium carbonation, light body, long finish. Interesting. Good.

bottle. pours a sparkling bright yellow with a big fucking head. smells of pineapple, and dough. damnit, why didn’t i say pineapple upside down cake? flavor is pineapple, pine, with that mellow funk that makes me think of chewing on rubber bands while smiling. some lemon notes in the finish. overall bitterness works with these flavors. is a hop forward "balanced" beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle pours hazy orange with 2 finger head. Nose is funky citrus, lime, musty. Taste is funky lime, faint pine notes, plastic, flour, dough, hay. Finish is a strange earthy lime, hay, dry, bitter, peppery. Weird combination, doesn’t all mesh for my tastes. OK.

Thanks to crajun for the trade!
Pours a medium yellow with a tall sticky white head.
Complex aroma pine resin, fruit, funk; thinking Saison not IPA here.
The flavor follows the aroma; again Saison type complexity.
Very nice interesting beer.
