Duhast500 (414) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Harpoon tulip glass. The color is a golden orange with a finger of foamy white head and some nice stringy lacing left on the glass. The smell is citrus flavor all the way with some of that nice hoppy aroma. The nose is full of the slightly dank hops with some slight green grass aroma. Grapefruit is here but also tangerine and a touch of lemon. The taste gets a tad bitter at first but then the citrus flavor comes and washes over the tongue pushing off the bitterness and letting some earthy, green grass flavor come in. There is tangerine in the flavor but not as pronounced as in the nose. There is a slight bready flavor in the background and there is also touch sweetness that last through the bitterness that comes back at the end. This beer has a pretty drinkable feel and is medium bodied to give it enough of a feeling like this beer has substance but is still pretty light for the ABV.

mirvine8309 (4) - Sonoma, California, USA - JUL 11, 2016 does not count
Nice and hoppy but not a complexity of hops. I'm not seasoned enough to pick out which variety of hops they use but kind of one dimensional.

Frothmeister (708) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2016
12 fl oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber with some sediment floaters, and a one finger light tan coloured head. On the nose, lots of resinous notes, with grapefruit, passion fruit, faint lemon, and a hit of booziness. Medium bodied with some mild sweetness hiding under the bitter grapefruit, citrus pith, light caramel, and tropical fruit notes up front. Then it heads into more pith-like bitterness, mineral notes, with some above average bitterness with some heavy fruit notes in the finish. Itís not extraordinary, but itís solid.

shigadeyo (3630) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 25, 2016
Bright tangerine hops, sugary citrus, slightly floral aroma; hazy orange color, thin off white crown; floral and citrus hops, fresh hops, hair enough malt, but a bit soapy in the finish; medium body, slick mouthfeel; good, but not really that great. Draught at Martyís Hops & Vines in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear copper to orange color. Has a medium sized white head. The aroma is all hops with some citrus. The taste is a big hop rush with some citrus at the end. An outstanding beer.
