Boutip (6273) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 12, 2016
Can: Poured a light gold color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of fresh citrusy hops notes with nice floral qualities. Taste is a good mix of citrusy notes with light piney undertones and some subtle residual sugar notes and some bitterness noticeable in the aftertaste. Body si about average with good carbonation. Well-made and very drinkable APA.

Pour is hazy with tons of fine carbonation and thick fluffy head. Soft piney aroma, hints of grapefruit. Taste follows with big citrus tanginess, bitterness follows to a nice finish. Big and juicy.

Hazy bright gold with a thick sticky white cap. Bright grassy and orange rind hops on the nose with a certain fluffiness about it, like a NE IPA. Full delicious flavor with a bright citrus rind and grassy tones, a fluffy full pale malt and almost wheaty body, finishing with more leafy fresh beautiful hops. Lovely citrus and fresh hops throughout.

On tap at Hops & Pie. Hazy, bright, yellow to orange appearance with a fluffy beige head. Aroma of fresh, zesty hops, citrus fruit, cereal and light pine. Similar flavor, adding a fresh, mild hop bitterness. Light to medium body with soft carbonation and a creamy feel. Pretty refreshing and easy drinking overall.

12 oz. can from Prufrockstar - thanks again, Chris! Pours a cloudy gold with an injured or more of foamy barely off-white head that laces the glass while settling into a rocky, patchy film and ring. Fresh Citra and Simcoe, indeed. Fresh citrus and tropical fruits, pine, herbs, wildflowers, grass, and a light bready malt backbone. Well-balanced, with a light body, moderate carbonation, and smooth mouthfeel that has doesnt overpower with bitterness or juiciness or maltiness. Drinks so nice. Wow, impressive stuff.

douglas88 (8996) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 29, 2016
Bomber from Whole Foods. Lots of Fremont in PDX lately- which is great. Pours a clear orange color with a large white head. A big fruity and meaty hop nose. Soft oranges and citrus, tangerine, very juicy core that shines through, almost dare a say, East Coast IPA like. Toasted malt base. Very nice and clean. Super drinkable.

pushkinwow (2769) - Ottawa, CANADA - OCT 19, 2016
Can from Robert. Hazy but vibrant amber with a creamy white topping that settles to a dense patchy foam. A fairly mixed and musty hop aroma with some resin, grapefruit zest, unripe pineapple, kafir and some underlying malts. Moderate+ carbonation and moderate body, somewhat astringent and quite bitter on the finish, dries out and leaves a lot of resin and grapefruit.

Draft at Brouwers Cafe in Seattle. Cloudy copper with a lacy white head. Aroma is great, big citrus rind, grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple. Nice flavor, touch of sweetness, big hop punch, loads of citrus zest. Medium body, average carbonation. Very good.
