At Bottleworks while wandering around choosing bottles. Pours orangey with a white head, great cascading lacing. Aroma has heavy bitter citrus, pine and fresh fruit. Taste is of bitter citrus and pine with resin. Not very balanced, but very fresh and tasty.

Sampled at GABF 2012. Stumbled upon this in the brewer’s guild section. And it really impressed me. Bright and clear hoppiness. Good sparkle to it. Bitterness stays around without taking out the palate.

Sampled at GABF. Nice hoppy aroma. Slight malty body. Tasty if not among my favorites of the night. Of course, this was also my third to last beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Concordia Ale House, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of fresh floral hops, doughy malt and some crackery malt. Flavour is very fresh and doughy, with floral hops, crackery malt and a bit of metallic flavour. Not so interesting – the fresh hops seem a bit dulled by the metallic notes. Decent stuff.

Tap at Hood River Fresh Hops Fest... Poured golden orange with a white head. Vegetable tones. Peppery-spiced, resinous hops, and a decent bitterness. Sweet tart malts, overall a strong candied sweetness and a freshly hopped flavor.

Draught. Very hoppy beer yet somehow restrained. Citrus and piney aroma. Full bodied hop flavour, thirst quenching. Lasting hop finish, yet this is not quite a hop bomb.
