Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Leighton. Hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and airy. Mild fine carbonation. Soft airy malt. Nice hops - fresh orange, orange peel with a little grapefruit and floral sweetness. Turns medium bitter with tropical fruits making an appearance. Finishes light with a long bitter linger. Nicely put together.

Boittle thanks to a bro
Pours a hazy gold color with a good head and hie lacing on the glass.

The atom aid a bunch of tropical fruit and citrus rind. It’s fresh and hoppy with some mild floral and alcohol notes.

The flavor has a nice level of bitterness with a lot of fresh hoppiness, some passion fruit and melon being the stars of the show, It’s nicely dry and lightly boozy.

cool

PhillyCraft (3127) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle split with Brian, pours clearish copper, aromas of fruit, caramel, hops, skunks, and farts. taste is bitter and aggressiveness as far as hops go. Back of throat. Wish they didn’t clear it out so much. Still nice flavor but kills your buzz slightly.

joeneugs (3118) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 1, 2014
22. oz. bottle. It pours a rather hazy orange color with an off white head. The aroma has some juicy hops, tangerine and melon rind with a touch of apple cider that’s a bit off putting. The flavor is ok, with some dank, piney hops, melon rind and intense piney bitterness in the finish. The flavor relies too much on bitterness for me and lacks the explosive aroma I like in this style. Not too bad, but disappointing.

Bottle. Golden pour with white head. Spice, herbal and grassy hop aromas. Flavor is grassy and herbal but also malty.
