Tap - fair size foamy head, very nice medium orange color, huge citrus/grapefruit hop aroma and flavor with a decent size malt backbone - very good pale ale, if you like big citrus flavors

hayduke (3322) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 5, 2012
This 22-oz bottle was shared in a joint tasting with Strykzone via Facebook chat. It poured an amber gold with a good sized and long lasting white head and a lot of lacing. Nose of citrus and tropical fruit on a clean caramel malt aroma. Medium in body. Very smooth in the mouth. The flavor is big on both taste and bitterness. Very well balanced with the malt. Finish is citrus and good bitterness. A very good single hop.

MikeJslc (732) - USA - JUL 27, 2012
Medium gold, clear, white head. Citrusy orange-tangerine hop aroma, some caramel malt sweetness in the flavor and a little biscuit, followed by some resiny bitterness with more citrus in finish. Very drinkable, good citra hop showcase. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strykzone (4813) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2012
A bomber from Hayduke that we shared via facebook chat. This beer had light haze and was coppery gold. A nice head that gushed after being rolled. Citrus and caramel are the aroma. First sip is bitterness. Citrus is big and is grapefruit and softer citrus. Caramel adds plenty of sweetness and must be significant here. Perhaps a bit of paper. This hop is able to stand on its own.

laiti (5556) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 23, 2012
65 cl bottle @ hotel room, Las Vegas
Aroma is rather strong on gooseberry bush. Also nettles and some caramel. Flavour has rather strong and stinging hops with gooseberry bush, some biscuits and hints of nettles. Refreshing, but the hop profile is a bit harsh.

olio (5936) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 23, 2012
65 cl bottle @ Hotel room, Las Vegas.
Pours clear dark golden color with small head. Aroma of nice refreshing citra hops, exotic fruits, nettle, some pale malts and grass, some grape fruits also. Flavor of hops, fruits, pale malts and some goose berries. A bit stuffy palate, hoppy and fruity still.

3fourths (7879) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2012
bottle. filtered gold with medium-sized white bubbles with low retention. first whiff is something around garlic / shallots / onions with the requisite dried herbs, resin and pine sap. a short time into it the malt begins to show through the powerful hop smell: toasted grains, buttered biscuits and peanut shells. commercial description mentions passion fruit and grapefruit, neither of which I get in any sense; lime in there somewhere, but comes across more like lime leaves and citronella oil than lime juice. texture is somewhat gummy though the body is thin (or medium thin). always interesting to try a single hop pale ale to add to what I know of citra hops, but the hamster pellets, alfalfa seeds, peanuts and sunflower seed note grows to unpleasant levels.
