Hopmaestro (1717) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2017
Aroma is pale malty with tropical fruits such as grapefruit, orange and also sweeter fruits like pear and light melon. Taste is mid sweet with ripe peaches, citrus, grapefruit and a pretty long bitter finish. Superb.

dinkle50 (1531) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 21, 2017
Slightly hazy golden pour with a single finger head. Aroma is sharp, biting with grapefruit. A little bit dank BO/passion fruit/locker room. Medium bodied, really nice soft mouth. Finish is very bitter with big time grapefruit notes and hints of grain. Super bitter hop bomb, tongue scraping bitterness. Lingering bitterness hangs with you. Lace present.

kraddel (8736) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - SEP 5, 2017
Thnx to Mike ! Pours hazy blonde, decent sized, very clingy and rather stable white head. Smell is strong, bit pine, bit fruit, mild grassy. taste is bitter, pine, very chewy grains. mildly alcoholic. Bit too alcoholic ( boozy ) for me. Still very enjoyable nevertheless, and has a good body. Ideal carbonation. Long lasting bitter aftertaste. Not of the same quality as Heady, but good nevertheless.

FROMTHEBOTTLE (82) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2017
Can straight from the brewery. Pour was easy. No extra foam and looked great in the glass. Pleasant hop aromas before you take your fist drink. Citrus and floral on the nose as well. Thin head and good lacing left behind after first sip. Bitter hops dominate on the palate with typical resin and citrus. Was expecting more grapefruit but pleasantly surprised that it was secondary taste profile. Bitterness balanced with dry finish. Glad I picked up a 4 pack of Crusher along with some Heady.

JulienHuxley (5909) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2017 Can. Lightly hazy gold pour, lots of floaties, with frothy white head. Aroma is hoppy, resinous, very grassy, piney. Taste is suuuuper bitter, enamel stripping resinous bitterness. Palate is med bodied, light alcohol warmth. Dayum, dis oldschool. A blast from the past.

jercraigs (10731) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2017
2017-07-21. Hazy dark yellow body, modest white head. 3+ Aroma has interesting melange of citrus, floral, green hops, touch of alcohol. Flavour is fairly bitter and green hops up front. Nice fruity citrus and tropical fruit character. Average bodied palate, good carbonation. I like it but the bitterness overshadows the fruit a bit, to its detriment. 7/4/7/3/15-16 Can shared by Wilco.

charule (2286) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2017
Sample on tap at The Alchemist VT. Poured yellow orange white head. Aroma dank hop. Light carb med bod. Taste quite bitter. Not my favorite hop character.

3.9
tapefuzz (759) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 24, 2017
16oz can. Pours golden orange with a thick, foamy white head. Aroma is pine, floral hops, lime, some grapefruit, orange, and pineapple. Taste is resin, some caramel, citrus (some orange, some mango, some lime, maybe a little grapefruit - although none are too prominent), a little vanilla, and some spice. Big but gentle bitterness. Lightly boozy. Medium body. Strong carbonation. Relatively creamy, somewhat pillowy mouthfeel, although it lacks the richness of Heady Topper or even Focal Banger.

3.3
popway (223) - California, USA - JUL 6, 2017
A healthy pour reveals a honey orange with a foamy head, fermented fruity and dank piney aromas follow, full bodied mouthfeel, bitter lingering back end, taste is bitter oats, palate is a bit slick
