BMan1113VR (7853) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 15, 2009
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a large, creamy white head with great lace over a hazy orange body with some particles. Aroma is grassy with spicy and pine like hops, a bit of melon, fresh grainy malt and a bit of papaya. Taste is not very bitter, a ton of malt sweetness with a fruity hop finish. Light bubbles and a water like mouthfeel.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2009 Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a thick light tan head. Aroma of of grassy and citrus hops. Flavor of sweet grapefruit and bitter grassy hops with a sweet citrusy finish. The hops have held up nicely on this beer’s overseas journey. Very delicious! 8/4/8/4/15 (3.9/5) Update 3/4/09: Second time around I get a lot more caramel malt in this as well as more fruity notes (tropical fruit, some citrus, and a touch of lemon). Less grapefruit and grassy hops than before. Very smooth and refreshing. The palate is simply heavenly. I’m enjoying this a lot more, so I’m gonna bump the score on this one. 8/4/9/5/17 (4.3/5)

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2009
Bottle, 10/22/08. Aroma quite bitter with only a touch of toasty malt in the background, but pine needles and oranges are at the forefront. Flavor citrusy (lemon, grapefruit), piney, especially toward the end. Sweet biscuit/croissant malt there the whole time. Big, gritty, bitter finish. Great showcase of the Simcoe, which would seem to be the point.

Anker (723) - Hillerød, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours an cloudy orange colour with a big off white head. Aroma is marvellous, fresh citrus mostly dry grape, pineapple and hits of yeast. Flavor is very fruity, grape, pineapple, and peach with hints of pine. Very pleasant bitter aftertaste. Fantastic stuff!

FatPhil (9258) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 14, 2009
Bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
Beautifully fruity hoppy aroma. Some grapefruit and pineapple. Acidic sherbetty palate, lively carbonation. One-dimensional hoppiness, gets very boring very quickly. Behind the onslaught of hops there’s only a very simple slightly milky malty body. Unbalanced. Finish is just more hops. The word ’complex’ doesn’t belong anywhere near a review of this one. Snore.

DalzAle (1973) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Bottle. Pour was very hazy apricot with decent carbonation. Aroma was hops and noticable citrus. Flavor was hops, grapefruit, pine resin and finished pleasantly bitter. A VERY good beer, but not worth $7 a bottle in my opinion.

agl108 (783) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2009
11.2 oz. bottle. Poured hazy, deep orange with off-white head. Sheets of lacing. TONS of small particles that stay mostly suspended. Pungent, fresh-cut grapefruits in the nose. Flavor is of mouth watering citrus fruits with some pine as well. Medium body. Smooth. Sticky, resinous finish. Spectacular, well done.

(Bottle at Pikkulintu, Helsinki, on 2009-02-11) Amber and hazy. Beautiful flying saucer shaped quite large white head. Pine resin in aroma. Medium bodied and dry palate with medium carbonation. Pine resin, fruitiness, bitterness and hint of sweetness in taste. Bitterness and pine resin in aftertaste.

17thfloor (2430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 10, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2009 Pours a hazy reddish burnt orange with some soda bubbles and a big dense rocky peach colored head. Candied grapefruit aroma, lightly peachy, very fresh. Flavor follows, mostly candied grapefruit, plasticy malts, hint of alcohol, lightly piney, touch salty, lightly grassy, some fruity peach and orange. Bubble-gum comes on strong after a while. Great balance and delicate finesse for something that is so fresh and rough at the same time. The body is fantastic, light and drinkable, so fluffy, like drinking meringue, no stickiness.
