bigwesticle (37) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Aroma wasn’t too heavy but was very pleasantly surprised when I tasted it. Lots of tropical fruit notes, bananas,guava, etc. Great balanced bitterness and a simple grain bill to showcase the fresh hops. Very good.

Tap at Walters, pours a golden with small to medium white head and light lace. Aromas and flavor of cheese, cardboard, old hops, and grain. My guess is this wasn't fresh. Lame

12 oz can from the source. Nice citrus and rosemary like smell. The hops here are the star but the malty base really compliments everything. Nice!

Boutip (6533) - 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.

onceblind (10569) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2016
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.
