On tap at Alchemy - Pours hazy amber with a filmy white head. Nose is dank, garlicky hops with mango, tropical fruit, melon, citrus and pine. As with most of their IPAs, this one has a dry malty backbone. Taste is dry, crackery malt with tons of mango and garlic hops. A little onion and lots of pine and citrus one the finish. Thick and slick with medium carbonation. Another great one from TG.

tkrjukoff (4101) - SWEDEN - APR 16, 2014
Growler from Derrick, huge thanks. Pours cloudy orange amber with a great beigish lacing head. Aroma is a huge fruity citric pineapples mango piny hoppy surprise. Flavor as intensively fruity piny tropical fruits as aroma, low malt profile is just spot on to let the hops shine, pleasantly bitter so evident but yet subtitle enough to not be too dominant.

16oz tap at Sloopyís in La Crosse. Very strong hoppy aroma with hints of citrus, bread, and earthyness. Flavor is tangy citrus and surprisingly mild bitterness. Another excellent beer from TG.

Crushed with Jakebra






Pours a milky yellow with a small head & nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is pungent and very hop forward, itís got some pineapple and orange rind fruitiness up front but itís got a good oniony and dank character as it warms a touch.

The flavor is really pleasantly bitter & has nice fruity notes of melon & citrus rind. Itís plenty dry... really hop forward, itís not complex but itís not trying to be either.... itís just a nice hop forward beer.

cool

Draft pour at the source. Pours a hazy gold with a white head of foam. The aroma is fruity and citrusy with a bit of musty character. Taste is dry and sweet. Medium carbonation and a big body.
