bhensonb (12600) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours light amber with a white head. Aroma is fruity and citrus. Med body. Flavor is fruity and suddenly that citrus that is almost like pine. Lots and lots of hop. It’s a bit sweet, but there’s enough hop to solve that. Extremely tasty.

9/2/15. Growler from Beer Durham. Nice rich hoppy nose. Boozy mouthfeel with a round somewhat dark hop favors. Lacks some of the complexity I was hoping for. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alphadelic (1936) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Very tasty. Light for the % which is something they seem to do very well. Bright and hoppy, warm in the throat and belly. Piney and tropical in the hop character.

euniceradio (223) - Colton, California, USA - JUL 18, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2015 22 bomber to cervoise. Pours clouded orange, beige foamy head. Aroma of dank, pine, grapefruit, citrus peel, grass and fresh squeezed OJ. Taste of pine resin, OJ, mango and trop fruit, booze, pepper spice, cracker and sweet yet semi-toasted malts. Finish is acidic bitter, dry and long-lasting. Brilliant balance between malts and hops. Not too boozy for a 3X 122 IBU 11.1 ABV

trapped (1456) - New York, TURKEY - JUL 10, 2015
Draught. Hazy bright orange with small white frothy head, strong floral hops aroma, medium carbonation, full body, well balanced piney hops flavor, slight citrus taste, medium citrusy finish. Very well balanced brew, the high alcohol content is all but unnoticeable.

PhillyCraft (4075) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Sample at p house, orange golden shade with medoum sized top. Notes are juicy and dank hops up front with some grspefruit and pineapple followed by some slightly toasted and sweet caramel type malt. Finish is a bit boozy but it’s 11.1 percent. Medium to fuller body. Not bad but we need to stop making hoppy beers so high in alcohol.

Jrwhitney6 (382) - - JUN 20, 2015
Pours a semi-clear gold color with white foam. Wonderful nose - floral, citrus, pine. Taste is some caramel, citrus, but cuts over pretty quickly to bitter hops and some alcohol on the finish. Very good - a little less alcohol on the finish would make it better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
