jredmond (5194) - Manhattan, New York, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle shared with Linh. Pours a bright orange body with thick white lacing. Aroma is malty bread and light grapefruit hop. Mouthfeel is medium with lots of bready malts, grain and light bitter grapefruit hop. Seems past it’s prime, so would love to try this on draft or fresher.

crossovert (6927) - Illinois, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Half liter bottle. Pour is deep gold/amber. The smell is resiny and citrusy, very fresh and clean. The flavor is rather dry. Big lemon characteristic as well as a light sweet malt backing. It is definitely not bad.

Bottle from Utah Liquor store. Pours golden with a thin white head. Has a nice citrus thing on the nose. A bit of grapefruit on the tongue with a some solid hoppiness of the finish. Hides its alcohol well. Not bad.

Fruity grapefruit nose. Crisp and clean finish, taste of citrus, grapefruit, and slight orange. Very easy to drink. Mild bubbles with a hint of tartness and fresh hoppy note.

Half liter bottle from Ale Yeah! Pours a.... GUSHER! Pours a clear amber color with a monstrous foamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of citrus and pine hops. The taste is citrus and piney hops, grapefruit, mild toffee malts and something slightly off.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle from Douglas. Thanks! Pours an attractive orangey gold with a sticky white head. Nose is gooseberry and black currant, tropical fruits and super catty notes. Low malt. On tasting, moderately sweet and super fruity. Moderately high bitterness and clean. An odd bird but an interesting beer overall.

crajun (932) - , Texas, USA - JUN 23, 2013
bottle from doublass88 in trade. very nice aroma - powerfule citrus, grapefruit and pine. Not sure what is going on w/me but I hate this - back to the old days of me and iipa’s. this is just toooo much of a grapefruit resin hop bomb - zero enjoyment for me.
