adnielsen (9464) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle @ home, thanks to TheAlum for sending. Pours a slightly hazy, darkish orange appearance with a lasting, big cream colored head. Grapefruit, candy, tropical fruits in the nose along with some herbal / grassy notes. A touch goopy with some residual sugar but it isn’t overly sweet. A lot of grapefruit, peach, and apricots. Some pine. A little heat on the finish. Kind of a fun beer but I’d take a Pseudo Sue over this.

kbudd19 (709) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle share at RBSG, sampled back to back with pseudoSue, cloudy golden pour, with a nice finger or two white head. Aroma is loaded with tropical fruits, pine, and some sticky malt sweetness. Taste is an explosion of tropical fruits up front, sweet malts, and finishes bitter with a lingering aftertaste. This was really good.
