Pale gold/yellow color with medium fluffy white head and nice thick lacing. Aroma has sharp citrus notes, pineapple, mango and some grassy/yeasty notes. Flavor is very citrusy with smooth bitterness, lemon, grass and faint spices. Crisp with a light mouthfeel and minimal alcohol presence. Very good!

OmegaX (1300) - Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Bottle served into snifter. Aroma mainly consists of citrus with a sharp tropical bite. Onions? Something weird in there but not off putting. Flavor is similar with bold citrusy hops. Malt is an afterthought. Overall not bad but it had something strange in there for me.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aroma is fruity/floral hops and pilsner malt. Taste is fruity; with pineappple, orange, mango, & peach. Nice grassy bitterness from the hop profile. Pretty smooth for 9 ABV. Medium carbonation with a slick, oily mouthfeel and a slightly sweet finish. Very Nice!

Syndicate (97) - Idaho, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Extra in a trade with beergodd1. Appearance is a clear golden with a tight white head. Nose is pine and sweet bready malts. Flavor delivered on the nose with the hops providing a nice balance. Warming is making this beer more resinous by the second. Well done and enjoyable.
