Sampled from the tap at Lucette. Pours a clear yellow gold with a white head that dissipates completely. Aroma has notes of flora and citrus supported by sweet grains and grass. Flavor combines flora and citrus with some light fruits and sweet grain supporting.

arminjewell (9255) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Pours hazy orange with white head, on tap at GLBF. Huge hop aroma including tangerines, oranges, lemon, some tropical fruit, with just a touch of caramel. Taste is a blast of citrus up front, with a touch of caramel in the middle, and the ending is huge bitter that blasts the palate. Definitely more of a DIPA caliber with the amount of hops in there. Great brew!

Desverger (8293) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2016
Bottle sourced from Flask, Aarhus shared with the Fam! - yellow coloured pour with white head. Prominent citrus lemon fruity aroma and taste, crisp malty, light floral and grassy hoppy into the finish. Ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ibrew2or3 (8159) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Thanks to GhostFace for this one. 12oz bottle pours a nice hop hazed deep gold with copper hues and semi loose white head of foam. The aroma has a nice grapefruit hoppy goodness with some lime peel and hop resin creating added depth as well as faint malts in the background. Yum, the taste is full of grapefruit and some tangelo citrus hop flavor notes and then moving into more and more citrus hop bitterness. I’m really liking this. Rich bitter delicious. Nice one!
