4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft pint at the brewpub. What a beauty ... Light orange and pillowy. Beautifully hoppy and citric, quite full-bodied. Big beer that manages to be light in character, too, and deceptively strong. Exceptional. (#3818, 1/25/2010)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at Uptown Grill. Pale golden color, floral hop aroma. Flavor strong of floral and herbal hops, running over an interesting undercurrent of a flavor that maybe is from the rice? Has a finish that is strangely sticky-sweet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap in semi-clean tulip at 4th Ave Pub. Orange with quickly dissipating white head. Orangy citrus hop and cake aroma. Orange honey cracker (rice cakes?) sweet fruitiness with fairly assertive citrus resin hop bitter finish. Didn’t seem necessarily dryer and crisper than other good ipas. Pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Fourth Ave Pub: Hazy orange beer leaves an off white lacing. Big sticky citrus aroma- some cookiesh chewy pale malts and reainy citrusy hops. Pretty substantial body, but not sticky. Has a cookiesh malt background along with a big citrusy/orangey hop presence. Quite resiny with a vegetal character. Seems a bit past it’s prime- I’d wanna try this very fresh.

On tap at the Fourth Ave. Pub. Pours a hazy lightly browned amber with a medium to large white head. Pineapple. Tons of it.

tap at brewpub. pours a clear golden with a nice frothy white head. nice bright citrusy grapefruit hops. fresh flowers. taste still has a strong citrusy hop presence, but a lot of booze comes through. fortunately, there are enough big bold hops to balance this out nicely. My second favorite beer from kuhnhenn’s to date, after KRE.

A nice DIPA, at the 2009 Winter Solstice. The rice gives it an interesting drinkability and sweetness. Really bitter, really lacey, on a grapefruit body. ABove average smooth mouthfeel.

Pours a clear copper red. Nice creamy off white head, fully diminishing with excellent lacing. The aroma is big hoppiness, grapefruit, a little pine. The taste is bitter, hoppy, kicks your butt! Excellent, drank a lot there then went back a couple days later and got a growler, a very good brew.
