4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a murky golden orange color with a big white head. The aroma is filled with bright orange fruits, candied grapefruit, and earthy spicy hops. On the palate, the Hops are juicy and citrusy with some cheese rind funk. All of this is balanced by super sweet fruity malts. Dangerously quaffable.

22 oz. bottle from ndaniels13. Thanks again dude! It pours a rich golden color with a big, frothy white head. The aroma has some tropical fruity hops, a little floral and spice character along with a decent amount of caramel malt. The flavor is awesome. Sweet hoppy grapefruit, passionfruit, a little spice and caramel. Very smooth, full body with a snappy finish. Bitterness is low and hop flavor is high. It borders on a bit too malty for my tastes, but its so darn tasty, I don’t care. A great beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a cloudy opaque golden orange with a small white head. Nose brings out tangy hops, lots of dankness, and kiwi-like fruit. Flavour is super fresh, with tropical fruits, especially kiwi, tangy dank hops, and light citrus. Dry, tangy and bitter. Excellent stuff.

Bottle shared by Lunch. Thanks Paul. Hazy golden orange body with a thick, white head. Aromas of fresh hops, tart citrus zest. Delicious flavor. Lime, grapefruit, kiwi. Medium bodied with mild bitterness. Certainly hop forward with a malt backbone, but definitely a hop showcase. Dank hops = awesome. Winner.

Sampled at SIPtemberFest. Another big hoppy beer from Sean. The Nelson Sauvin hops give this beer and interesting and somewhat unique flavor that I really like.

Bottle at Eric’s. Pours a slightly hazy golden body with thin white lacing. Aroma is perfect citrus hop. Awesome! Mouthfeel is sessionable while retaining so many juicy flavors; cheese, Nelson, fresh cut grass, pine resin and citrus fruits. Incredible.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Hazy, amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The fruity bouquet is a hoppy blend of peach, apricot and tangerine peel, flanked by a restrained measure of musky lupulin. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with modest carbonation. The flavor is bitter, offering both fuzzy and citrus fruit tannins povided by the beer’s hop bill and schedule. Finishes bitter and tannic with a tongue-numbing characteristic. Big-time THANKS to landhoney for sharing this bottle!
