good hop combo. slightly thin and slightly malty for me in a IIPA, but definitely passable. aroma was the strength, otherwise pretty mediocre.

rosenbergh (8316) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 28, 2015
Draught at the Tenaya Creek, Las Vegas, NV. Clear golden colour with a mid-size white head. Strong sweet fruity hoppy aroma with some sweet maltiness. The flavour is strong fruity hops, moderate bitterness, sweetness and some grainy malty notes. Warms... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fiveacestx (722) - Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2015
On tap at the brewery - dark gold yellow with a small head and lacing. Not as hoppy as Hop Ride. Fairly sweet with a caramel taste. More hoppy on the back end. Somewhat earthy. Medium body.

Prufrockstar (1394) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Bomber featuring a dancer riding a tiger, thanks to wittales. Appearance: clear pale amber with ample frothy head, decent retention and lacing. Aroma: gentle caramel beneath citrus and floral hops, toast and wet dog. Taste: moderately sweet up front, followed by loads of bitterness; alcohol lingers in the aftertaste. Palate: texture is borderline syrupy, with full body and moderate carbonation.

Fantomasus (272) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Man, the appearance really hurts this one. Reviewing from memory now... Pours a flat copper amber with no head. I mean no head. Winds up looking like beer that has been left out overnight. Everything else makes up for it and it winds up being a middle of the road "good" beer.
