Tap @ Tap and Handle Fort Collins. $7 for 10 oz. R u jokin or wat? Pours a bit hazy golden appearance with a nice white head. Super fresh hop cone, citrusy, light garlic aroma. Very dry and refreshing, citrusy, incredibly potent hoppy flavor. Fucken a bro. This is some premo shit here. Best lager I’ve had since my visit to Germany last summer.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2010
Pizza Port Ocean Beach. Very pale straw-coloured pour with a thin white head. The nose is light and grassy with a distinct Saaz sort of noble hop character. Light lemon peel and a little bit of soft pine as well. Grassy Saaz finish. There is also a nice yeast contribution that gives the beer a touch of honey flavour to the malt. It’s light, well-attenuated and pretty quaffable. Very nice stuff actually.

Tap at Proletariat, NYC, 25/11/13. Additional thanks to Puzzl for confirming which beer I’d had at a later date! Lightly hazed golden amber with a moderate off white head, good lacing ensues. Nose is tarte grapefruit, bitter orange, lemon sherbet, citric dipped straw, light funk. Taste comprises orange pith, grapefruit, toasted malt, tarte orange peel, grassy. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry grassy finale. Decent, a little differnt form the Bruery, hopped up pils.

Sample on Day 1 of the Aces & Ales Strong Beer Festival on 08/12/2011. Pours a pale golden color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus and malt. Medium body with flavors of spiced hops, grapefruit and sweet malt. The finish is hoppy with a citrusy aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
