4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Taking a break from Slutfest ratings to catch up on some Mekong backlog. Told people I had something hoppy from the Bruery, but no one believed me. Gold, nice head. Aroma is massive floral and hay hops. Flavor matches, clean, with enough honey accented grain to hold it all together. Very nice, really loved this one.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
on tap 8/26/2009 at papago.
hazy pour? of golden orange-ish brown with a small white head and sticky spots of lace.
what a strange nose... pithy grapefruit, florals, bitter (how can i smell bitter?!), earth, a weird dustiness, spice, herbs and cardamom.
the flavor is massively hoppy... herbaceously odd yet delicious!... eucalyptus/earthy menthol, cardamom, tons of spice, citrus and resin with a touch of sweet grain and a bitter finish. crazy hoppy... numbingly so!
it has a substantial medium body yet it is so bitter and parching... making it all to easy to order another.9/5/8/4/16/4.2

Tap. Reminds me of hoppy jacks Abby IPA. Some grapefruit. Pleasant fog and green grass. Nice body. A lighter version would be more refreshing. But this was good.

On draft at Tap 25. It pours a golden yellow color with a thick white head. Nice aroma of lemon rind, pilsner malt and hard citrus candy. The flavor is big with lemon rind bitterness and lots of florals. A bit too intense with bitterness in the finish, but otherwise a top notch IPL.

Growler fill from old e courtesy of some bros. Appearence is hazy gold with medium white fluff head, nice lacing. Aromas of dank and pungent hops, lots of bitter rind and floral pineyness. Taste was pretty sessionable with a good citrus hop bite in the finish. Easy going with a Medium body. Great summer drinker.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Good Karma, San Jose. Light haze in a gold liquid. Aroma is big citrus and hints of cat pee. Citra hops? Am I right with the Citra? Lots of fruit aromas. Body and mouthfeel is right for the style, light bitterness. The flavor is rather good for the style. Lots of fruity citrus balanced with biscuit / dough malt. Crisp finish with nice tropical fruit flavor. Really simple to drink could border on the IPA style.
