Draft. Like a super grapefruit-pithy belgian ipa, yes belgian ipa, it has tons of spice, wasn’t the ginger either.

JoeMcPhee (8837) - 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.

DSG (8175) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[2/21/15] Draught at Toronado in San Diego. Clear golden. Lovely hoppy aroma with lots of tropical fruits and citrus. Hoppy flavor with nice fruitiness and a bitter finish. Light to medium-bodied. Very nice.

BMan1113VR (7898) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 1, 2009
On cask, all three versions. Chinook: pours a light golden color with some froth. Aroma of pineapple and exotic fruits. Dry and earthy hops flavor. Centennial. More fruit and pineapple citrus throughout. Cascade: Pours darker with more head. Aroma is earthier with even a touch of cinnamon. Earthy and dry flavor. Cask like mouthfeel for all three. Light bubbles.

j12601 (7456) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Had this at Brouwerij Lane (I think) with JDadmond after Where The Wild Beers Are. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Musk, sweet funk and chewy wheat. Fuzzy yeast, musk. Spicy musk with a big body full of heavy wheat and moving into a long bitter finish.

bb (7305) - Alamo, California, USA - OCT 15, 2009
Draft. Amber beer with a whitish head. Grapefruit and light pine aroma. Nice piney flavor with light grapefruit. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Grapefruit and pine linger.

marcus (7301) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 29, 2011
On tap at The Trappist. Pours light golden with a decent off-white head and a floral fruity aroma. There is a robust bitter pale malt flavor with a dry finish.

GABF 2010, really liked this. medium golden pour. Its all about the hops here. Big Simcoe? aroma & flavor. Bitterness just dominates here in a good fashion. Tons a flavor. Well done

"Te description does not really reflect the greatness that was this brew. This is Pliny in lager form plain and simple. But for a slightly lighter feel (and maaaaybe a tiny tiny bit lighter but otherwise identical aroma and flavor) you can just about copy and paste the Pliny reviews over here. Absolutely stunned by this one."
