Lightly-to-minimally hazy, bright, "lime"-tinted, bronze-brass. Small, but dense, white head atop showing modest retention.
Very relaxed nose does indeed show primarily American hop notes of citrus (lemon and grapefruit), soft yellow fruits (pear, peach, apple) and a surprisingly strong maltiness on the end full of honey, vanilla and even caramel. Malts eventually outdo the hops, with toasted grain, caramel and strong bread-like notes lingering. No resin, despite it being quite grapefruit-forward.
In the mouth it's soft, malty, and lightly sweet with much of the caramel, honey, toasted baguette and such seen from the nose. Lemon-lime and grapefruit with light peach and apple add some balance though the bitterness is surprisingly low. Almost tastes like it's oxidized on the finish, but that may just be strong specialty malt notes and older PNW hop notes giving a sense of oxidation. An odd tension between the very strong malt character and very citrusy, fruity, low-in-bitterness hops. Low, somewhat engaging carbonation could stand to be tighter. No alcohol or flaw noted.
Hopfenfest Bochum 2018. Irgendwie Pech gehabt. Floral-hopfig in der Nase mit etwas Zitrus, geschmacklich jedoch eine Zumutung. Dünn, schlapp, demotiviert. Vielleicht war das Fässchen ja infected :( HeikoSchmitz (110) - Bitburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - APR 21, 2018
Banane, Grapefruit, Zitrone.
Sehr schöne Krone, leider instabil.
Süffig, deutlich bitter. Herb.

Bottle from Boxbeers. Pours hazy yellow gold with a large short lasting off-white head. Aroma of hop, citrus, yeast, grass, hay and slight soap. Quite heavy sweetness, moderate bitterness. Medium body, oily texture, above average carbonation. Dry, sticky, sweet finish. Bov (14988) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 21, 2018
courtesy of Philipp and Thomas - clear golden beer with a little white foam left; fresh and clean citrusy and grapefruity aroma; solid yet subtle carbonation; medium-bodied, lively palate, gently tart and decently bitter, long fresh hoppy finish of yellow fruits ElDesmadre (4445) - Mikołów, POLAND - FEB 20, 2018
Bottle. Light malty, shy basement note, pronounced hoppiness - herbal, lemongrass, tobacco, citrus, vague tropical fruit. Toned down, light astringent bitterness. Very tasty with some room for improvement regarding the mouthfeel.
