Nice hoppy nose with somewhat of a preserved malt base. Despite the lagering, the elements seem to work well in preservation here. Pours gold with ok head and lacing. Finishes with light bitterness and a tough of sugary sweetness. Some booze evident. Tap at Boundary Road.

The coloring threw me for a loop as I thought this was going to taste terrible, but I was wrong. Some really nice notes of hop and bread. Some sweet malt finish.

TimE (3146) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 21, 2014
Deep golden color, frothy white head, nice carbonation. Sharp hoppy nose that is fairly herbal with oranges and peaches. The mouth is a bit heavy, full on hop assault, but sufficient enough backbone to balance everything out. Big bad bitter finish. Very aggressive. Hops just linger and linger. Fantastic and really well executed.

Tap. Pours clear golden with a large creamy beige head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is light pine, citrus, Passionfruit, guava, musk melon. Flavor follows, light sweet and medium bitter, fruity, tropical, a bit dank. Pretty nice finish with lingering tropical bitterness. Medium body, oily mouthfeel

Weezel (189) - Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Aroma is pretty gentle hops and some yeast. Taste is great to open with bubbles and citrusy hops. Don't pick up much of the lager in this one, more of a classic American style IPA. Good overall.

jackl (4576) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Keg @ Mekong. Hazy amber pour with a tiny white head. The nose is full of mango. Pretty bright, mild underarm. Very much the aroma of a ballsy IPA. The taste is of mellow orange sherbet. Toasted white bread. Grassy bitterness on the finish. Medium body, crisp. Pretty tasty stuff.

On tap @ The Reservoir (Waterbury). Clear golden/orange wit a small white head and some lacing. Aroms if fruity with citrus, lot of hops, grassy notes and light floral presence. Taste is slight sweet with citrus, fruits and grass with a light bitter finish. Medium body. Good carbonation. Slightly sticky and dry finish. Very good beer. Main feature is the large amount of hops in the aroma. Drinkable and quenching.
