Aroma of citrus and hops. Pours deep golden with a white head that lasts the whole beer and laces the glass. Taste of hops with citrus fruits and has a medium bitter end. Very good beer.

Bouteille 66cl partage avec Tomaz. Merci Asheft - Alex for the trade. Fin dor, lger orange, col pais crmeux blanc-cass. Arme au bouquet plaisant, tout comme son design etiquette, fruit tirant sur les agrumes, rtro de pin avec un malt sous-jacent biscuit. Palais est lgrement houblonn, fruit, huileux avec une touch poivre, amertume perduranre pregnant des accents dagrumes. Abricot, touche de melon, malt pils cara pale avec une fin rappelant encore lherbac et le pin.

Deep gold pour with nice sized white head. Huge hops on the nose with grapefruit and citrus. Flavor is a much the same with a solid example of a WC hop bomb. Hops to the end.

PorterPounder (7762) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton- 22 oz bomber. Slight haze to the medium golden pour, nice sticky bone colored head, solid lacing. Aroma has some spicy notes, a whole lot going on, hard to pin down, but pleasant. Solid flavor, pick up a lot of fruitiness, some mango, a bit of citrus bitterness, some light maple syrup sweetness, Pleasantly thick mouthfeel.

Metalchopz (3312) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 8, 2016
Pours a mildly hazy golden-orange colour with and off-white frothy head, good retention and lots of lacing. Beautiful aromas of grapefruits, caramel malts, tangerine and decent hops. Slick smooth mouthfeel heading over to a mild dry end. Again, some grapefruit in the taste with a little more zest, and some nice caramel background. A little more on the sweeter, fruity side then grassiness. Very easy to drink the whole bottle.

HippyHop (620) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2016
Citrus and pine and peach with a sweet, sugary malt backdrop. Borderline DIPA, and damned tasty. Wish it had a bit more hop punch ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
