Sample from tap at the brewery. Pours hazzlenut brown with an off-white head. Aroma is a great blend between floral hops and a clear grapefruit note. Flavour is grape fruity with solid hops bittertwist. Strong bitterness into the finish. Very very well made.

Out of the can at the brewery....when I debated with them, as the manufacturer, that they couldnít really run out! Actually Omar was great to us at RBSG 2007. Clear ice tea color, smooth frothy head. Citrusy in the nose, piney in the taste. A nice hoppy drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can at DL day: Deep amber with coppery hues, small tight head and lace. The aroma has notes of grassy and piney hops, grapefruit esters, herbal and grainy malts, some clove like spice and a dusty and metallic vapor. The taste is pretty much in line with the nose, moderate bitterness hops, fruity acidity and bready malts with an metallic finish. Aggressive and brash mouth feel, refreshing break to the many big beers of the day. I would gladly take this canned beer to the park any day.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2009 thanks incutrav for the trade...muddled dark copper color. aroma dominated by sweetened grapefruit (the actual fruit inside), fresh grass and pine. probably the freshest most alluring smell iíve ever gotten from a beer...ever. medium bodied with a creamy mouth feel that only improves as it warms a bit. pink grapefruit skins and rosemary dance around in the grassy wheat bread flavor. honey notes and malt balance out the huge dose of hops that bites at the tongue from beginning to end. i was actually a bit intimidated to drink this after reading some of the reviews but it is very well balanced and surprisingly easy to drink. pairs really well with a peppered turkey sandwich on wheat with lots of mayo...hmmm...thanksgiving?9/5/9/4/19/4.6
fresh and straight from the can... incredibly slick full mouth feel. thick like drinking cream...9/5/9/5/19/4.7

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured dark amber with white head. Aroma of hops and citrus. Started with a strong hop flavor which mellowed into a sweet caramel taste. Citrus and pine were present also. Very well balanced between hops and malt. Wish I had more than 1 can....
