dnstone (2301) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Amber color with excellent head. Dry piney hop aroma. Flavor has an aggressive hop character; overall very dry with a light body, but the hops attack your mouth. Notes: Denver Rare Beer Tasting ’13

djd07 (4938) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 12, 2014
On tap at Backcountry Pizza. Pours a cloudy orange with thick frothy off white head that lasts leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is strong pine, hemp, and citra. Medium mouthfeel with nice citrus, sticky hop, and light bitter finish. Very good.

Aubrey (3481) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Incredibly delicious IPA with a bright hop profile and amazing balance. Nice amber hue with a foamy, lasting head. Smooth, easy-drinking texture with a mild-to-moderate carbonation level. Rich, biscuity and gently toasted malt flavors complemented by the perfect amount of caramel-like sweetness. Flavorful and aromatic hops are highlighted with notes of citrus, pine, grass and flowers. Just the right amount of bitterness surfaces in the finish and lingers nicely into the aftertaste, leaving behind hints of grapefruit and orange peel. Fantastic.

MadRobin (2226) - Silver Spring, USA - AUG 8, 2012
On tap sampler at Thai Me Up restaurant and brewery in Jackson, WY. Clear amber with medium-size tan head and excellent lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, pine and a bit of caramel malt fighting to get through the dominating hops. Bitter, hoppy taste of pine resin, grapefruit, citrus and again a touch of caramel malt. Medium body and medium high carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

daknole (10035) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Amber pour, white head. Citrus and herbal hops on the nose. Flavor is bitter and juicy with a hint of caramel to balance a really nice beer.

Braudog (5952) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Draft (and on nitro as "Nelvin") at the brewpub. Orange amber. Still. Thin top on draft, creamy on nitro. Outstanding aroma, screaming Pacific Northwest right here in the Tetons. Drinks with the same character. Citrusy, acidic, drinkable, delicious. (#4641, 7/2/2012)

JoeinDahlem (1350) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 10, 2010
Huge citrus nose over an amber-colored ale. Restrained sweetness and zesty, resinous hop flavor. And basically a perfect match for bright, spicy Thai food.
