Pours hazy gold Aroma is melon and tropical fruit. Taste is much the same as aroma. Extremely fresh melons tropical fruit, maybe even some coconut. typical caramel malt backbone but the hops are what really shines. This is a good example of my favorite style of beer.

ekoerper (587) - Iowa, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Aroma: huge charge of dank hops, lots of citrus and tropical fruit, very floral. Seems to have a good mix of Nelson and Galaxy character, melon, grapefruit, orange, some grapes. Light notes of malt and crackers. Appearance: pours a fairly hazy light golden color, white head with decent retention, leaves spotty lacing. Taste: great hop flavors - lots of ripe citrus and melon, some white grapes. Medium bitterness - nice amount for the style but not so much that it’s distracting. Ripe oranges and tangerines, just tons of fruit character. Just a touch of sweetness in the finish, light malt flavors, nice balance. Palate: light-medium body, medium carbonation, semi-dry finish. Overall: really great APA, explodes with fruit character and fresh hops, hopefully this hop sticks around...

fidelis83 (1910) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Bomber thanks to joshmcg000. Hazy gold to orange pour with a 2 finger, creamy off white head that fades somewhat quickly to a skim. Aroma is loaded with tropical fruit, melon, some spicy stone fruit, a little citrus zest, biscuit and light fruity and spicy yeast notes. Flavor is again loaded with tropical fruit and melon, spicy, bitter stone fruit, light dry prairie grass and lots more floral notes than the aroma lets on. Aside from the hops there’s are some light biscuit, bready and mineral notes. Light to medium body with a slightly creamy entry, off dry finish and moderate, blanketing carbonation. Really, really fantastic.

Bottle thnx to Steasy66 . Split payed and sampled with ST247 Pours clear blonde. good white head . Smell is bit fruity , the same burnt-aspect-fruityness as I had in Zeelander . Perfect carbo . Full bodied, bit bitter, fruity, heavy taste . Some dark-bitter tastes , gentle yet intense . The taste is almost to be named as ’smokey’ but not quite that , as this is way better . Very interesting taste , very different and unique , and a damn good one ! Aftertaste is sweet, fruity, bit bitter, fleshy even almost . Very interesting beer !

Poured from a bomber. Aroma is pine, citrus, and grapefruit peel. Flavors are pine, citrus, slight earthy note, and a tiny mint note(not unpleasant though). Another very nice pale ale from TG, it’s not as good as pseudo sue but that’s a tough thing to beat! Another great offering from TG!

nuplastikk (4299) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 25, 2013
22oz bomber. Unfiltered orange-tan body. Foamy, steady white head. Medium bodied, but with a massive solid hop bill. Dryish amarillo-ish strawy tones at first. Some orange, mellow tangerine, a hint of melon in the aroma. The tropical tones comes out the more you sip at it. Some pungent mango, guava, pink grapefruit start to show up. Pretty much all a beer enthusiast could ask for in a Pale Ale in late 2013. Clean malt backbone and a hefty new school hop barrage. Great stuff.

Bottle. Look is clear amber with a nice head. Great hop aroma. Taste is citrus and spruce. I think this is a little drier than Blue or Yellow. Delicious!
