pinkzambia (1427) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle: cloudy, murky gold color with an off-white head with some sticky lacing. Lemony, juniper shrub, ginger, and a peppery tanginess. Solid hop flavors with a sturdy malt backbone. Heavy body but also refreshing with some bitter cucumber peel in the aftertaste.

thb (671) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 27, 2014
Clear ’dark gold’ with not much in the way of foam on tap. Aroma is hop - tropical fruit, grapefruit. Soft cereal malt background. Bitterness is gentle. Relatively complex for a single hop. Drinkable as can be.

stevoj (1958) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Slightly hazy amber beer with creamy head, thick lacing. Citrus/pine aroma, hops more subdued in flavor as dry malt comes into play. Finish is abrupt and dry. Smooth drinker.

exeter (236) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 20, 2014
Pale copper colour with micro-head that hangs around to the bottom. Smells of Tropical fruit but muted. Flavour is grassy, grapefruit, minor lemon and a little bit of breadiness. Goes down nice.

Bottle. One of the more flavorful pales I’ve had. Grapefruit and orange rind. Biscuity malt after. Really, really nice!

VertBaconStrips (2060) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 22, 2014
Shoulda bought this a while ago. Light apricot gold with a large off white fluffy lid and slippery, foamy lacing. Just like the label says: grapefruit, peach and citrus as well as orange, slight dough. Tasty and not crazy in my face. Soothing malt with just the right amount of fruity bitterness. Watery sizzle grapefruit, citrus, peach and salivation. Another quality laughing dog brew.
