vipinvelp (2368) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2014
Somewhat opaque golden yellow, white lacing lasting foam. Quite bitter aroma, some grass/hay notes. Likewise strong bitter taste and aftertaste, little room for anything else. (Velp 201409)

scooterbub (871) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - MAY 1, 2011
On tap at Lander Bar. Pours a golden-copper color with a tan head that lasts. Taste is of fruit, hops, citrus, pine and some malt. Similar aroma. Has an oily body and a good amount of bitterness to it. The alcohol is hidden well. Easy to drink and quite enjoyable.

JK (4615) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 20, 2012
Can from Jackson Hole. A nice looking beer. Gold color and a tall white head. Aroma has good hops. Flavor is dry hops with some grapefruit. Great hop flavor, too bad we can’t get this in Minnesota.

Ughsmash (7184) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Canned. Poured medium, straw golden with a fluffy, well-retained off-white head. The aroma picked up juicy pine, peach, and grapefruit hoppage over a sweet fruity core.. very fresh and enjoyable. The flavor found pine, pepper, and grapefruit bitterness over bread and fruity sweetness.. spicy on the finish, with some muddled hoppage.. not as good as the nose, but still solid. Medium-bodied and on the bitter side on the palate.. watery and slick at times on the middle.. the feel wasn’t quite there, but overall this was solid.

Draft. Hazy yellow color, thick white head, solid lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit. Taste is similar. Not bad.

Light straw pour White thin head Peach aroma with some apricot  Tangerine and peach dominate Mildly sweet, but not a ton of bitterness Creamy mouthfeel. Basic, one note, but really smooth and tasty

Strykzone (5074) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 30, 2012
12 oz. can from Hayduke. A fluffy almost white head fades slowly and leaves plenty of lacing on the glass. Light haze in this golden beer looks inviting. The nose offers sweet fruit, yeast, and pale malts. It is sweet and pleasant. First sip is sweet citrus fruit. The beer has some herbal notes, pine, and a bit of grain. However, this beer is built around the hops. It does not try to do too much with them which is to the credit of the brewers. Nicely done.
