On tap at April Brews Day, pours a hazy copper with a medium off-white head. Aroma brings out lots of bready malt upfront, followed by resinous hops. Flavour is along the same lines, with bready caramel malt and resinous hops. Has a sort of puff pastry quality. Meh. brokensail (16486) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 27, 2015
Can @ home. Clear amber pour with a big, soapy, khaki head. Amazing grapefruit and pineapple aromas. Like, really nice and unexpectedly good. A lot of fruits, some caramel malts, and toast. The flavor is still pretty good and fruit forward, but falls a little bit flat when compared to the aroma. Nice malt sweetness and toasted bread. Good grapefruit, some pine and earthy bitterness, and dried pineapple. Solid, though. Ferris (15918) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2015
Draft - Lots of grapefruit and nice caramel. Deep cloudy dark Amber with a decent white head. Sweet, resin, malt and some light pith. Nice. bhensonb (15358) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 24, 2016
Can from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark copper with a foamy beige head. Aroma of strange fruits over somewhat roasty malt. Med + body. Flavor is amber - including nuts and a bit of chocolate - but there’s a good deal of hop. I’m thinking tropical with just a bit of citrus. Could be kiwi fruit. Goes a bit earthy with time.

Sample at the OTR Beerfest during Cincinnati Beer Week. Hazy copper color with a medium ivory white head that diminishes gradually to a film. Short strings of lace. Aroma of citrus, berries and hops. Medium body with flavors of citrusy hops, strawberry and crackery malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
