COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of our favorite styles, this ale is a hop explosion. Light in color, heavily hopped in the kettle as well as conditioned with several unique hop varieties. This creates a beautiful floral/citrusy nose which is balanced well by a smooth and full finish.

Draft. Clear golden yellow color, thick white head, delicate lacing. Aroma of pine and pineapple. Taste has pine and tropical fruit in a bit of an odd combo that grows on you.

An ale Iíve never heard of - from allendodd. Thanks again, guy! Pours a lightly hazy pale gold with a decent bubbly, fluffy white head. Big floral/citric aroma. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is deceiving. Starts not hoppy, then destroys taste buds. Malt? Who knows. This is a very aggressively hopped ale. But it is very floral, so itís not nasty, biting bitter. Or at least not all that much. The IBUs must be way up there. If you see it, donít miss it.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with tytoanderso (thanks!). Poured a medium to deeper and cloudy golden color with a small sized off white head. Lots of suspended floaters. Aromas of citrus (grapefruit and orange peels), pine, and lightly spicy. Tastes of citrus, light caramel, and light pine.

JorisPPattyn (7978) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2007
Small yellowish head, tad irregular, over faintly hazy orangey beer. Very grapey, enthusiastic hops, dry smelling - but not much else. Severely dry - bitterish, hoppy and a tad walnut peel-like. Thereís some malts, strawlike, underneath, hints at sweetness, but the hops rule. Light to medium bodied, (hop)oily slickness (maybe a bit wheatslickness too). OK, if not truly great. Pleasing if one does not expect wonders.

12 oz bottle that says DEC WK 3. It pours a nice pale gold with the slightest hint of peach. The head is foamy, soapy, and white. It leaves some decent lacing. The smell is really lacking. It is sweet with not too much hops. Maybe it is an old bottle. The taste has a slight bit of hops, subtle bitterness, it is fruity, malty and sweet. This is weak, very weak.

Ughsmash (7158) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 8, 2008
Bottled. Poured medium golden with a whole helluva lot of sediment floating around in there. The aroma was nice and juicy with candied oranges and a bit of bubblegum leading.. it was so sweet that I had trouble finding anything behind. The flavor wasn’t a surprise after that nose.. sweet sugary orange candies all over with a bit of spicy floral bitterness and orange zest around.. finished with an odd sweet and bitter contrast. Medium-bodied and juicy on the palate with a very sweet complexion.. kinda hard to drink.
