On tap @ the Über Tap Room in the Wisconsin Cheese Shop, Milwaukee. Deep golden with a dense head (almost nitro in character). Densely vegetal hop character, slightly cheesy even, very oily.

allmyvinyl (9336) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2016

arminjewell (9237) - 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!

Pours clear golden color with a small head. Very grassy aroma, some hops, pine and mild resin, orange also. Flavor is orange fruity, harsh grassy bitterness, some resinous hops. Not very pleasant, maybe not fresh enough.

Ibrew2or3 (8074) - 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!

whoopin? .. . pours a deep copper .. . good head, great lacing .. . windchimes .. . tasty brew- floral and sappy, but rather simple .. . good beer .. . . Of all the things I am not very good at, living in the real world is perhaps the most outstanding.

drowland (7881) - Georgia, USA - AUG 10, 2012
8/10/12. 12oz bottle. Hazy orange pour with a nice off white head. Floral, earthy, and slightly dank aroma with some citrus and caramel. Parallel flavor with even more dankness and caramel. Not bad.

Svesse (7764) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUL 23, 2016
(Draught at Bishop’s Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm, 20 July 2016) Hazy golden colour with creamy, white head. Malty, hoppy nose with tropical fruit, citrus and black-currant. Malty, hoppy taste with notes of citrus, tropical fruit, toast, black-currant, grapefruit, blackberries and a generous citric bitterness. More than medium body, with a slight sweetness. Solid and well made IPA with a generous hop presence. Very nice.
