On tap at El Bait Shop. Aroma is super potent and awesome. Plenty of hop bitterness of course, but it's very soft. Grapy. Pretty strong wheat flavor. Other than that, not much to say about this.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Sloopy’s in La Crosse, WI. Golden and hazy in color with an average head and lacing. I got the glass about six inches from my face and could immediately smell a giant citrus (and something else - unknown) hop flavor. Has a medium body and a taste on the backend that i just couldn’t figure out. The finish is refreshing. It immediately reminded me of the Saint Arnold Endeavor. I liked it.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
[On-tap at Toppling Goliath] Pours super hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is odd, with an unidentifiable fruitiness--some pineapple maybe? The taste is even stranger, with an odd, overly ripe fruit character, along with rubbery notes in the beginning. Luckily, the rubbery scent fades, and is replaced by papaya, a little grassiness, and loads of pineapple. After awhile, peach also really comes on strong. Medium-thin mouthfeel, with a decent length finish. Overall, I was really not impressed in the beginning, but this grew on me, and became very enjoyable after awhile.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very hazy yellow color with a small head.
The aroma is bright and pungent, plenty of grapefruit, brilliant fresh hops, spice, and pine needles are all present. The aroma is very hop forward and does a great job of presenting the multi-leveled character of the Nelson Sauvin hop.
The flavor is much of the same from the aroma with the pineyness, spiciness, and grapefruit. The beer is very dry, crisp, and leaning towards the high level of bitterness.

Tap at Red’s Alehouse. Slightly hazy bronze orange body. Earthy nose with some leather and oranges. Taste is leather and slight salt with some bread crust. There is a light angel food cake finish. Nice and bright. Solid.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is packed with citrus and tropical fruit, some vegetable, particularly onion as others have said, a touch of toasty malt. Pours hazy golden with a white head, good retention and lots of lacing. Flavor follows the nose, lots of citrus and tropical fruit, pineapple and grapefruit, some pine as well. Firm bitterness but not unpleasant, a touch of toasty malt. Medium body and carbonation. Nice brew.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap. Pours a hazy straw-yellow. Aroma is incredible, tons of raw onion, lemony citrus notes. Flavor is all Nelson, some onion in the flavor but mostly dominated by grapefruit, some passionfruit, white grape kind of fruitiness. Medium body and a softer carbonation. Extremely drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Sanctuary. Poured a slightly hazy golden color. Lovely looking. White head with decent retention and lacing. Citrusy hop aroma (grapefruit, orange zest) with that distinct body odor/poorly ventilated gymnasium smell that you get from certain hops accented by pale malt. Light to medium bodied and delicately sweet with mild to moderate bitterness. Body odor, grapefruit, subdued grape candy, graham cracker, and honey touched cereal grain flavors.
