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.

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. Im really liking this. Rich bitter delicious. Nice one!

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.

Ughsmash (7504) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Bottled. Poured medium golden with a sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up grapefruit and grassy hoppage over a fairly nondescript pale malt base.. transitioned to tropical fruits as it warmed up.. good stuff. The flavor found bitter pine resin and peppery notes over pale and lesser bready malts.. more bitter on the back-end, a tad muddled back there, but still tasty. Medium-bodied, very bitter and spicy on the palate.. just a touch abrasive for my liking, but there was good stuff in there.

On nitro at a pizza joint in Madison, pours a murky orange with some creamy, thick white head. Nose has biscuit and orange jam, a little vegetal, some grass, lemon. Flavor has a lot of lemon and pine, chewy grains, a little bubblegum maybe. Creamy finish.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle:   Pale amber, hazy, moderate white head, fairly nice lacing.   Sweet citrusy and pithy nose.   A little floral.   Sweet pithy start, a touch earthy but its minor, with a bunch of sweet citrusy white bits towards the backside.   Not bitter at all.   Well, bitter I guess by not biting.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes just as it started, citrusy, some sweetness, a bit pithy, with faint floral notes.   Really enjoyable!

On tap at Sugar Maple. Clear gold/amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma is orange, pine, grass and grapefruit with very little malt. Orange and grapefruit flavor with some pine and sweet malt before a bitter grapefruit rind finish.
