Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - DEC 9, 2009
An unclear orange beer with a massive long lasting head. The aroma was light fruity. The taste was fruity, & peppery with the alcohol extremely noticeable(it is not hidden in any way) with a carbonated mouthfeel. This beer does not go down well. Almost a drain pour.

armando629 (2448) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 8, 2009
0,33 l fliptop bottle.
Nice hazy, opalescent light golden body with a superb foamy white head. Moderated malty aroma with light floral hop and belgian ale-yeast character, mild honey, after a while some alcohol. Medium body with spicy flavor of mild hop, fruity tastes like apple with coriander, fine, well balanced and well hidden, warming alcohol. Light bittery aftertaste. Nice, easy drinkable, alluring one....

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2009
Bottle from Kegs & Barrels in Plano, TX. Pours a light gold with large fizzy white head. Aroma has a nice floral hoppiness, clean malt, light citrus. Flavor of clean malt and some nicely blended hoppiness. Mouth feel is light body with high fizzy carbonation. Overall, pretty tasty, enjoyable beer. Wish I could have explained flavor better but that’s all I wrote.

berkshirejohn (5164) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2009

wimpie133 (381) - Brugge, BELGIUM - DEC 2, 2009
Bottle, 33 cl. Blonde-golden beer with medium white head, lacing ok. Drunk from the special Hopus glasses. Grainy and hoppy smell, some malty notes in it. Taste is grainy and malty, and after a while a nice light bitter hoppy finish comes into your mouth. Although I expected this beer more bitter (as a hoppy beer), it has a wonderful taste.

KyotoLefty (7575) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 30, 2009
Deep golden color with a HUGE head. Citrus, pine hop aroma, with green apples, and biscuity golden malt, honey, and a touch of caramel. Bready, grainy malt, with cookies, a bit of caramel, citrus, grassy, hops, spice, honey. Rich and tasty. Sweet. Very refined and classy malt, with a nice bitterness at the finish. Very sweet, but tasty and balanced. Interesting malts. Dig it.

dyetube (1331) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 28, 2009
This beer pours a golden yellow with a large white head leaving good lacing down the sides (I actually poured this into a half yard glass though). initial aromas are skunky, clove, and a little leather. Not a very enticing aroma. The sip confirms the aroma. The taste is light, slightly bitter and not that good. Not a very good beer in my opinion.
