Grzesiek79 (3112) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Niesamowicie imperialne piwo. Slodowosc przebogata sporo tropikalnych cytrusow w nozdrzach. Melon, grejfrut nawet avocado wyczulem. Chmieli az tyle ze wypadaja ze szklanki. Piana spora trwala naprawde puszysta i kremowa. Metnosc na srednim poziomie ale w smaku cudownie slod otulony w cytrusowe smaki, swieze i mocno wyczuwalne dominuja tu ale slodowosc jest dobrana prawie idealnie do pary.

Tselloufc88 (71) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle from Petaluma Market. Cloudy orange brown colour. Fluffy white head. Inviting aroma of sweet tropical fruits, passion fruit. Taste is filled with juicy peach, grapefruit, tropical fruit and citrus with a nice bitter finish. This is reall tasty. It hides the alcohol really well and is very refreshing. Truly brilliant.

MIBRomeo (2537) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Hazy orange pour with a tall white head and thick lace. Aroma was tons of hop, lots of citrus. Body was full well coated and a little creamy. Taste though was more piney than anything else. Finishes with a piney resinous quality with a good amount of lingering bitterness. The lack of balance was disappointing from what otherwise what could have been great.

HopsHipster (34) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2014
Lækker frisk øl med fin farve og god bitterhed i eftersmagen. Skumkronen er dog lidt sæbeagtigt. [APK: 7.97]

adster (120) - HUNGARY - JUN 29, 2014
Fénysebességgel fejlődő és elmúlni nem akaró, meseszerű habbal érkezik a pohárba egy hasonlóan elképesztő illatrengeteget szabadítva fel a levegőben. Becsukott szemmel, csak az orrunkra hagyatkozva egészen más helyszínen találjuk magunkat: egy gyógynövényes réttel szegélyezett fenyőerdő közepén járunk, ahol az összképet fakitermelés rontja, a levegőben legalábbis frissen hullott forgács illata száll. Ezt a hangulatot egy darabig tovább élteti íze is, mely a hatást fokozandó csonthéjas trópusi gyümölcsök aromájával egészíti ki a képet és a megszokottnál kissé tovább időzhetünk ebben az idilli közegben, mígnem a komló egyszer csak szétrobban a szánkban és megvadítja az ízvilágot. Ez a folyamat minden egyes kortynál lezajlik és az utolsó mozzanat minden alkalommal ugyanakkorát szól. Igazi amerikai nagyágyú.

ajnepple (1995) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - JUN 25, 2014
On tap at Barrels & Bottles. Gold and clear appearance with a white head. Aroma of bitter hops, pine, floral notes, herbs, earthiness and light fruits. Similar flavor, hoppy and bitter with light citrus and tropical notes. Medium to heavy bitterness and a medium body. Good.

njnut (200) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Poured into tulip a hazy orange with fine white head and lace. Aroma was a hoppy citrus. The taste though was more piney with a citrus background. By the finish I was getting pine resin only. Pine aftertaste that lasted. Slightly oily and a bit thick. A fair amount of bitterness.
