BrettTaylor (616) - Radford, Virginia, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Aroma - lots of hop notes but that’s about it on the nose - lots of citrus notes. Tastes - not very complex, lots of bitterness from the hops, citrus finish. Pretty long finish, well-carbonated. Good, but nothing super exciting.

MadRobin (2226) - Silver Spring, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Hazy, amber-copper with a small khaki head and excellent lacing. Aroma of pine, citrus, grass, bread and caramel. Taste of orange, pine, grapefruit, sweet light fruit, grass and malt. On the sweet side, but adequately balanced by bittering hops. Medium body and medium/high carbonization. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is my favorite local beer. I have to represent my home town. Compares to a bells two hearted ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Atom (1593) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 6, 2015
12oz bottle thanks to obguthr, wow a gusher? Pours a murky orange with a large off-white head. Bready citrus orange aroma. Taste similar to aroma more balanced though, a nice mild bitterness. Light and approachable for 7.2% abv, very drinkable, nice!

EKGoldings (602) - Radford, Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2014
On tap several places. Slight haze, amber, good head. Citrusy, some fruit, light pine hops mixed in with decent malt aroma. I find the malt presence pretty strong as the beer warms. Aftertaste sweet and bitter, quite nice. A beer I can drink a lot of.

FatPhil (9908) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 24, 2014
355ml bottle - thanks Rosenbergh, VastActive and the crowd from Hel!
Sweet fruity and perfumey aroma. Light palate, no sign of 7.2%. Simple bready malts, a bit brief. Hops in the finish are also a bit brief. A bit throwaway. (But if anything, that means they did a very good job covering the alcohol, extra point for that.)

330ml bottle (tasting @VastActive place, thanks). Hazy amber color (bottom yeast). Sweet, hops, fruity, straw in aroma. Fruity, sweet, some pine in taste. Medium bitterness. Nice sweet and hoppy body.

330ml bottle, Thanks Rosenbergh

Pours yellowish orange with a smooth head. Aroma of citrus, pine, grass, zesty fruits. Taste is hoppy, fruity and citrusy with notes of orange peel and lemon. Finish is sweetish, fruity and resinous with some citrusy notes. Okay.
