Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Huge head with excellent duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are rich hops, flowers, caramel, yeast, fruits, citrus and hops. Great beer, but more like a DIPA.

On tap at Flying Saucer. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a small frothy off white head. The aroma is floral hops and hay. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet hop and honey flavor. Easy to drink, a very good IIPA.

bhensonb (10902) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Capped 750 from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. pours hazy orange gold with a 3 finger creamy near-white head. Wow. The aroma is richly fruity in both citrus and non-citrus ways. Bubble gum game to mind, but no. Med body. Flavor is very rich, bitter and fruity, and a lot of it is citrus rind. Maybe pink grapefruit rind? It finishes both sweet and bitter, but a lot more bitter. Really excellent ale. De Proef did one heck of a job here.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Pours hazy golden with a thin wispy off-white head. Notes of pineapple, overripe fruit, mango, sweet citrus. Full bodied, alcoholic with lively carbonation. Boozy, hoppy and delicious.

Tap. Pours lightly hazy amber with a medium, fizzy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is biscuit and straw malt, pine and resin hops, floral hops with fruity esters. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, supporting malt and fruity esters with a dry finish. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation.

Bottle. Hazy golden beer with a frothy white head. Inticing aroma of Belgian yeast and American hops. Notes of citrus, phenols, peach, malts. Smooth, yet heavy bitter in the mouth. Sweet malts, fruity hops, slightly astringent finish. Nice!
