Very nice deep amber in colour with lots of hops and malts in the nose. Very intense resinous hops in the mouth blending with the malts. Grapefruits . Nice!

Tap. Pours clear amber with a medium, fizzy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is fruity and floral hops, pine notes, cookie and biscuit malt with fruity esters. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, supporting malt, fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body, warmth and carbonation.

Co-rated with Scraff...
Very hazy, amber ale with a very small, creamy, white head. Decent lacing.
The aroma is of grapefruit and other citrus fruits, caramel and pine. Lots of cascade hops?
The flavor is nicely bittered from beginning to end. Malt-wise, there are some caramel notes, but overall, to drink this elixir is like chewing on juniper berries and pine cones. Hops, baby! Medium-bodied with an extremely dry mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, bitter, dry finish.

Picked up at the brewpub meself. The silly cartoon now makes sense, it’s big on malt and on hops. Cloudy with an off-white bubbly head. CItrus aroma, and the dot loace. Big mouthfeel: big bitterness and big maltiness. Above average mouthfeel. Big and bold, hits the mark.

Tap at Hop Devil Grill. Very dark, hazy brown brew with an off-white head. Hoppy aroma with moderate spice and resiny aroma. Some fantastic fresh pineapple and other tropical fruits over a soft toast, caramel and light chocolate maltiness. Very soft wheaty texture. Low to moderate carbonation accentuates the hops brilliantly. As it warms, even more sweet tropical hops, mango, grapefruit, and pineapple come out. Moderate bitterness and a long dry hoppy finish. Awesome stuff.
