Golden in color with a dry hop floral aroma and intense hop bitterness supported by a big malty backbone which culminates into a hedonistic mouthfeel. Yee haw!

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours golden yellow with a thin white head. Aromas of citurs and floral hops, and straw. Rich mouthfeel, lots going on taste-wise. Finishes clean and crisp. Classic of the style. Very nice.

Citrus fruits on the nose. Malty sweetness the second it gets in your mouth with a lowish carbonation. Hoppy bitterness at the back end with a slight hint of a floral essence. Would not have said that it 8.8%

McNeillR (1088) - SCOTLAND - DEC 20, 2013
Dank hefty yellow, little lacey or something else with a white head that flattened quickly. Peppery/spicy lemon peel and straw hop nose - bouquet. Nice, terse maltyness and sweet bitterness throughout. Decent metallic tang, moreish carbonation mouthfeel. Fairly bloody tidy and passable for 8.8%. p>Bottle, Black Friday Tasting, Beer Of Europe

Tap at Rogue Bar SF. Pours a clear yellow with a small white head. Aromas of light citrus, bread malts and floral hops. Taste is more floral hops clinging to the palate. Light bread malts and citrus comes through. This is actually a dangerous beer sitting at 8.8%! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

VinegarStroke (261) - Napa, California, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Tap: clear straw to gold light white head. Big pale malt lift. Very fresh malt with orange citrus hop edge. Just a hint of resin. Off dry. Moderate to high bitterness and not sour. Very good depth of flavor and length. Malt, grain and fruit. Another coarse beer with loads of flavor and no texture.

FROM NOTES. From a 750ml ceramic swing top bottle into a Spiegelau tulip. A: Pale malts, a little bit of fruit and a general, sticky-sweet character. A: Poured a nice yellow golden color with good carbonation and a nice white head. T: Hop forward with malt in the background. Still has a floral citrus taste. Nicely done. P: Creamy and full body with moderate carbonation and a touch of oiliness. O: The citrus fruits come through beautifully, and the smooth, creamy mouthfeel leaves you refreshed and wanting more!
