It must be a seasonal release. I didn’t know at the time that this was the 2013 release. Good. On tap at the Public House.
Pours a hazy gold with a foamy big white head. Good lacing. Nose is citrus zest/ Full in body with a resinous mouth feel. Flavor is very strong citrus hops with a long bitter dry finish. Great beer. corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy, pale golden straw color with a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting cap/ring. Excellent retention, taking a while to settle and coating the glass with sheets of soapy lacing on the way down.
Slightly earthy aroma with a really strong pilsner malt presence. Dank floral hops with subtle citrus, fresh cut grass and pine needle countered by strong pilsner malt backbone with straw, bread, biscuit and light, especially apple and pear. Kind of tame for the style.
Full body than expected with a crisp hop bite that lingers over the bready yeast sweet pilsner malts into a nice dry finish. Dank and earthy with strong hints of grass, resinous oil and pine sap. Nice bitterness lingering throughout. This is countered by tropical and citrus fruit sweetness with some tart grapefruit, sweet pineapple and lemon peel. Pale biscuit malt backbone with light fruit esters. Well balanced and deceptively drinkable. vandc01 (427) - North Branch, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Going off memory - had it almost a year ago but thought it was a very good beer.
Anything with amarillo hops is usually a good beer. badpuppy69 (321) - orange, California, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Pours a clear amber Brown color with creamy soapy head. Aroma is citrus light caramel malt and some barnyard hop funk. Taste follows the aroma well with a nice barnyard hop funk bill. Wet medium mouth feel that makes you want to slam it. marcus (10473) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 19, 2014
On tap at Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours. Dark golden with a thick beige head snd a floral aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with a bitter finish. Refreshing.

had fresher than last years. a ton of floral and citric hops both in the nose and flavor without all the bitterness. Very easy going, yet delicious. Brentv (680) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 23, 2014
From bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a medium white head. Lots of lacing. Aroma is citrus. Lots of hops in the flavor, a good maltiness, but not overpowering. Very nice brew. gkeh (482) - Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Reviewed from notes: On tap at 3rd Floor Houston. Pour is somewhat cloudy golden amber, nice one finger head, nice lacing. Aroma is slight bready malts, floral and citrus hops. Great overall IPA, I’m looking forward to this year’s version. arnold931 (1263) - Iowa, USA - APR 15, 2014
Bottle. Pours golden with a nice white head. Nose is great citrus. Good lacing. Good bit of citrus hop flavor. Clean and mild. fiulijn (20993) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Hazy blond color with creamy head. Delicate aroma of cereals, chamomile, grass, yellow polenta. Lean and dry mouthfeel; the flavor has some hay and cereals accent; strong bitterness; soft hop resins, but lacking a bit in the fruity side; balanced and long final.
Good beer, but a bit disappointing compared to expectations.
