CanIHave4Beers (4024) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Pours perfectly golden with just a light haziness, its got a small head that leaves some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is dank almost skunky pungent hops, some tropical fruit... all sorts of fun to sniff @ like a doge.

The flavor is very fruit forward, lightly bitter with some nice mango and bright hoppy fruitiness. Really nice, lightly rough around the edges but less so than the last batch I tried.

madvike (3205) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2013
On tap at Craftsman Table and Tap - Pours light hazy golden with no head. Nose is lots of onion, real dank, with pine and citrus. Pale malt base. Taste is a bit sharp, with a bit of dank onion, garlic, and lots of light bread malt. A bit of a boozy finish. Not much carbonation and fairly slick.

Jdveit (6) - Gilbertville, Iowa, USA - NOV 18, 2013 does not count
On Tap at Brewpub. Aroma is very complex. Appearance is slightly hazy golden. Taste is very bitter with citrus and that unique riwaken hop is very good. Overall one of my all time favorites. Grabbed a Growler for home

On tap at Casanova Wisconsin. Nose is very unique. Super dank. Tropical fruit, cookie dough malt followed by another blast of hop goodness on the finish. Great stuff

bytemesis (6946) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Tap. Pours cloudy yellow amber with a small creamy white head and great lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and spruce. Flavor is about the same, lightly sweet and lightly bitter, with a bit of yeast. Body is medium. Light astringence, particularly on the finish.

ekoerper (599) - Iowa, USA - OCT 23, 2012
On tap. Aroma is dank, ripe fruits, mango, grapefruit, a touch of resin, some bready malts and yeast, fairly subtle overall. Pours a hazy orange color, no head, no lacing. Flavor follows the nose, lots of ripe tropical fruit, grapefruit, bread and yeast, moderate-high bitterness. Low carbonation leads to a fuller than expected body. Overall very good taste, carbonation (in this particular keg, anyway) needs to be increased to really get the aromas to pop and lighten up the body a bit. Nice brew overall.

BVery (9662) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Tap at the brewpub. Fairly brigh yellow pour that is hazy. Nice clingy white head. Herbal aroma with a touch of BO. Herbal hop taste. Mild but noticeable bitterness. Very good.
