Beer pours a clear dark caramel with an average, white, frothy, mostly and rapidly diminishing head. The aroma is sweet malty with a light note of toasted grain, caramel; hoppy with heavy-to-harsh notes of resin/pine, grapefruit, light notes of apricot;; yeasty with light notes of dough; miscellaneous notes of light cedar.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - APR 15, 2006
It says triple hoppy right on the bottle, and it is. Hard hitting hop bite, resin pine, and strong grapefruit flavor. Also a weird gear oil smell and flavor, but good overall. And extremely hoppy.

Bottled. Pours a medium amber color. Strong hoppy and bitter aroma. Lots of sweet pine and citrus. Really bitter right up front. Pine needles. Bitter and spicy finish. Touch of alcohol.

joet (2547) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - APR 10, 2006
Wow. Insane. Like a tamer version of Bear Republicís legendary one-off eisbier I described as "sweetened hop juice". Iíve finished a bottle and I actually am hurting from all the sugar. Just a bit too sweet for me but the powerful toasty, citrus, resinous experience is still one to be cherished. Moylanís best beer ever.

OldGrowth (3272) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - APR 5, 2006
Bottle, from Julioís. Good nose, Citrus. More lemon/grapefruit, little orange pine too. Clean brownish orange color. Ok head that faded quickly. Minor lacing. Bitter flavor. The big grapefruit pucker. Sort of burnt (or maybe thats just the tastebuds getting overwhelmed) Medium body, creamy oily mouthfeel, BItter finish. Tasty in a punishing way. A one sided brew.

fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - MAR 30, 2006
22 oz. bottle from Holiday (last one) 2005 bottle. Darker than expected amber with a decent head that didnít stick around at all. Aromas were crazy. Sweet orange, grapefruit, Pine. Some sweet cherry too. Flavors were nice too. Grapefruit. Just enough malt to make those hops stand out. Grassy and piney on the finish with a bitterness that lingers. Great beer.

BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 29, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2006 [bomber from Sunset Grill 3/29/06] Pours a nice bright orange color. Moderately sized head. Aroma is STRONG.. huge hops, as soon as you get it near you. Flavors are super fresh, grapefruity hops that dominate your mouth. Lively carbonation- finishes piney, dry and bitter.
