DYCSoccer17 (3698) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 15, 2016
16 ounce sample on tap at The Broadmoor Hotel. The aroma is pleasant enough with pine and floral hop character. Quite quaffable. Attractive, transparent ruddy copper body with a small, light tan head. Starts with some fruity character, before some big piney resins come through in the middle. Finishes moderately bitter and quite piney. There’s almost a bit of a urinal cake character going on here.

Grand Junction, CO - College Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Slightly hazy medium golden, soft snow white head, nice film of lacing. Aroma has some pungent spruce accents, some floral accents. Bold IPA flavor, some bittersweet citrus, a touch of mango frutiness, some raw cake mix sweetness. Thick, rich mouthfeel. Pretty solid.

kevinator (2221) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Mild citrus hop aroma. Pretty color with a decent head. Medium palate and easy to drink. It was a mix of hoppy pale ale and IPA. Not over the top, just even keel and better than most of their beers.

3.4
snoworsummer (5697) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 11, 2015
Draft at the brewpub. Pours clear bright amber with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like caramel, dry grapefruit, citrus hops, toasted malt, and resin. Medium body and carbonation. Smells like citrus hops, toasted malt, caramel, grapefruit, and a hint of vinegar.
