Keg at The Pony Bar UES, NYC. Pours clear gold with a small, white foam head. Lovely aroma with good urine notes, orange and other citrus, background pine. Medium to big sweet flavor with some spicy pine notes, a bit more pee, some gritty earth and grass, orange and grapefruit. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly resinous to finish with continued pee, sturdy citrus fruits, resinous pine, palate-kicking earth, mild pale malts and bread. Great stuff. Well balanced. Exceptionally drinkable.

Poured a hazy yellow color with a small white head. Aromas came at the nose with citrus, dankness, and some tropical fruit. Flavor was dank, hints of onion, grapefruit, mango, and mild sweet malts and pine. Medium body and a thin smooth texture. Solid carbonation and a smooth medium bitter finish. Wow, this was really good. No bottle date and I just bought the bottle a couple days ago and it says winter seasonal on here. So, either that is wrong or this beer ages well. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. Split with 3 people and this was each person’s favorite.

Strykzone (5500) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Pint bottle from mstrcrwly. Clouded orange gold with an almost white one finger head. A pleasant citrus aroma and that carries over to the flavor. Something funky and dank follows. This works somehow. Bitterness comes late. Feel has some resin. No alcohol is noted. A hint of vegetable and, somehow, lactic. The flavor is more restrained that I expected. It is a nice and unique version.

On tap at AJ’s. Pours an amber body with thin off white small head with lace. Aroma is fresh citrus fruits, bitter hop and sweet honey. Mouthfeel is medium, a good amount of malt.

Smells like grapefruit and a bit of lemon. Taste very citrusy with nice dank hoppiness. Notes of grapefruit, lemon, with a bit of earthyness. Hops hang around well after the finish, good beer.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate citrus, light dank notes, pine, lemon, and a touch of caramel. It pours a cloudy burnt orange with two finger white head that eventually fades to a thin film outlined by a soapy ring. Soapy rings are left on the sides of the glass with each sip. The flavor starts with with a quick dose of fruit/sweet citrus and light caramel. The finish moderate citrus hops, light dank hops, pine, a touch of lemon, and herbal notes. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, a little maltier than I like my IIPAs, but still pretty solid.
