Poured from a 22oz bomber into a HF taster. Pours a golden opaque orange with a slight white head. Scent is heavy floral with pineapple, mango, and grapefruit... Really awesome. Taste is again with the pineapple and grapefruit and a nice hop bitterness. Medium body with a dry finish. Fantastic.

Tasting with the Crew. Didn’t know this badboy was showing up until Jrob21 pulled it out. At 45 days + we had some doubts that it would be as good as the ratings indicate. Would love to try fresh as this was awesome where it was. Tropical fruits, dank, citrus everywhere. Very nice.

Bomber shared with the crew. Was worried this was going to be too old at this point but this is still drinking incredibly right now. I have never had a beer with such a diverse hop experience. Everything from tropical fruit to bubblegum to bitter citrus grapefruit finishes. This has it all along with a good caramel malt working throughout the sip. Ranks up there although a notch below the best.

Bottle in blind tasting. Pours an orange color with white head. Aroma is citrus and mix of dank. Taste is sweet, dry, dank, citrus, really nice. Like this the more I drink it. This is really nice, but zues is as good and easier to get, awesome beer.

Homer321 (2128) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle. Poured into big snifter. Nose is pungent grass and typical Citra dankiness. I could smell this all day. Pour is a hazy orange with a small white head. Taste is moderately tropical with a pineapple and melon flavor. Very light malt presence, just a little breadiness. Moderately firm bitterness at first but definitely builds as I drink it. No detectable alcohol and very quenching. Could stand just a bit mor carbonation for the mouthfeel and to break it up. Very nice.

22oz, thanks D! Clean orangey golden, ample head that settles. Sweaty, pithy, hints of lemon and pineapple, dry white pepper. Light body, crackery dryness, hints of bitter citrus meld with the hops to really make this beer balanced and easy drinking for 8%.

Pours a hazy, golden color; fluffy white head with excellent retention and fine-bubbled lacing; tiny bubbles, beautiful pour. Loads of dry, grassy and herbal hop character in the aroma; nicely resiny and dry; dank; strongly reminiscent of herb. Medium-to-full body: creamy, softly textured mouthfeel despite the lively carbonation.

Enjoyed at the 2014 Firestone Walker Invitational. Hazy yellow, like fresh-squeezed lemon. Aroma displays lovely citrus/grass character, while the flavor adds a resinous, juicy hop quality. Very good, but not mind-blowing.
