Tap @ Barclay’s. Would you like some hops with your hops? If so, then this beer is for you. Piney, sweet hoppy nose with a piney and very citrusy (grapefruit) flavor. Strong, big bodied, and alcoholic.

Draft at Hollingshead deli. A golden pour with a substantial white head, aroma hits as citrus pine and sweet syrup. Body is held up with bready malt, sweet citrus residual sugars, the hop flavors and bite balances from start to finish. Felt like a good barleywine that made a trip through the pine forest. Much to ponder, much to enjoy - highly reccommeded.

On tap at Hollingshead deli in Orange, CA. I would have never thought it possible to say that a beer is Hoppy and Creamy in the same review. This beer is stunning. Hoppy up front with a cream y finish, clear amber color, this is killer. great stuff

Courtesy of Pailhead. Pours golden with no head (hand bottled). Huge c-hop aroma and flavor. Tons of grapefruit and sweet citrus, almost apricot like. Aroma reminds me of 3f dread. Flavor is very refined in a way, very strong but not over the top. Nice smooth citrus and sweet malt. Very balanced. Nice syruppy mouthfeel. Well done.

Huge, sweet marzipan, nutty, doughy, lavender, floral, grassy, resiny, spicy, orange blossom aroma. Clear golden body with low, fine bubbled, lasting, off white head. Orange blossom, herbal hop flavour with huge sweet maltiness, assertive bitterness. Doughy but dry in the mouth. Bitterness lingers on the tongue. Alcohol is notable throughout. Moderate warming. Medium-full body with decent, gentle carbonation. Bottle sampled at DenverLogan’s pre-GABF party 2005 (Hand Bottled from a growler).

On tap @ Falling Rock poured a hazy golden yellow with a light amber head. Aromas of grapefruit with a hint of pine. Palate was medium body, smooth and a bit resiny. Flavors of light carmel, and bitter orange with a bitter finish.

Draught at Falling Rock in Denver. Pours amber-gold-brass with a medium frothy white head and great lined patchy lacing. Pine and citrus fragrant grapefruit hop, excellent aromatic bouquet, with background malt. Malty hop grapefruit citrus rind warming fruit flavor with an acidic yet smooth finish. The alcohol is well hidden. Medium bodied and fizzy palate.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 19, 2005
Sampled thanks to Crosling- Pours a golden color, white head, nice lacing. Aroma is full of hops, grapefruit and citrus notes adorn the nose. Flavor is more hops, perfect balance, so flavorful and juicy. Awesome stuff!

cb (810) - Roeland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 18, 2005
Lasting, sticky lacing. Creamy butterscotch and pineapple aroma. Subtle hops and solid malt blend together with a hint of hazelnut. Like a dessert you got just because everyone else did and then you want more, MORE but don’t want to look like a pig. Would be the perfect accompaniment to a caramel-nut torte. The hops balance the sweetness and would set both flavors off beautifully. Juicy and saliva-inducing with a slightly dry finish. This beer strikes me as sexy, like it was made to give champagne a run for its money as the traditional aphrodisiac beverage. Thanks Vinnie!
