rayaron (1270) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - APR 20, 2016
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer and Beyond, Tel Aviv. Clear yellow with off-white head. The aroma has notes of ripe fruits, garlic and some maltiness. Quite bitter flavor with notes of citrus, ripe fruits, some garlic, a bit alcoholic. Smooth texture, medium to full-bodied.

BeerRenter76 (668) - Texas, USA - APR 16, 2016
Beautiful aroma mixture of dank, cereal, fruit loops, and citrus. The head is leaving some thick ol’ lace. The body is a mid golen orange color with some yeasy floaters. Flavor is geared more towards grapefruit with a decent, not bracing bitterness. Overall, its another winner from Victory.

onceblind (6741) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2016
Clear beautiful golden with a nice tight thin white head. Lovely citrus pith forward nose with bitter dank pine and a certain earthy acidity. Surprisingly smooth and quaffable semisweet body that’s a little too dangerously easy to put down. But full of lovely pale and caramel malts, nice grassy citrus peel, a light orange zest bitterness, and a semisweet citrusy hop finish.

Block (2152) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 24, 2016
Golden pour, huge head. Aroma is floral and sweet. The flavor is sweet with not as much hops as I expected. It has a very piney flavor with some alcohol coming through. Balanced pretty well. It’s good.
