screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - APR 30, 2010
Bottle at Beerexpo in Linkoping 2010.
Body is clear orange and has a white head. Aroma is from lot´s of hops. Aroma is also from peach and flowers. Well balanced. Flavor brings lot´s of hops (of course) as well. Balanced with a sweeter peach feel. portableparty (2366) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 22, 2010
Bottle. Pour is amber orange with BIG frothy soapy head and great lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and pine with a nice blend of malt that smells (creamy). Taste is creamy pine and citrus with a malty ending (very smooth). Palate is medium bodied and creamy with subtle carbonation and a dry finish. Excellent showing and glad its so fresh, 8 days since bottled (says bottle), great pale ale! JohnRMurdoch (4980) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 14, 2011
Bottle from Utobeer Market Stall, London. Smooth pine hop aroma. Amber brown colour with a good foamy head. Spicy hop flavour. Sweet aftertaste. Good one. dumontn (530) - St. Joseph, Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Fresh 2011 vintage. Pours light, clear amber with 2 fingers of head, great retention. Aroma is cheesy, grassy hops with a hint of tangerine and orange peel, barely a hint of toast. Taste is big roasty caramel with a grapefruity, grassy finish. Body is light to medium, oily, approachable bitterness, low carbonation, dry finish. Overall, having just brewed a batch of beer prior to consuming this, I can verify that this beer perfectly exhibits the aroma characteristics of un-boiled hops. Incredibly fresh and delicious.

Aroma of grapefruit and other citrus. Pours orange with a small head. Tastes of strong grapefruit and orange peel hops. Mouthfeel is sweet and sticky with a great aftertaste of hops. Love it.

Couldn’t tell you how old it was, but here it is almost 01/12 and it was at the store. I couldn’t believe I haven’t rated it yet. Wonderful nose, lots of fresh hop character, it didn’t seem old at all. Very piney, citrus, just amazing nose. Mouthfeel was rather light, and average carbonation. Flavor hit all of the right notes. Finish was very bitter. Leaves the New Belgium Fresh Hop in the dust. Overall, excellent brew. Enjoyability 4/5. WarChef1 (24) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2012
I really enjoyed this beer. I felt it was more on the ipa side. Aroma was quite grassy with some piney and floral notes. Appearance was lighter than i expected but poured a nice light copper color with a decently thick head that left some lacing throughout. Taste was medium bodied and a little sticky mouthfeel. with some decent hop bitterness and a touch of malt sweetness but not much. Carbonation added a refreshing quality i liked and it had a nice long finish. Would recommend eating with thai food or spicy sausage. Very good beer overall. would buy again! zickbeer_ye (441) - Virginia, USA - OCT 29, 2015
Aromas of fresh crisp hops and juicy citrus. Nice golden body and white foamy head. Fresh piney hops and juicy orange flavors. Crisp and refreshing on the palate. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - DEC 14, 2016
Poured from a can into a pint glass. The appearance is a bright orange color with a large white head. The aroma is full of hops and not much else. The taste is mostly hops with some malt in the background. AcctError2896 (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2006
This was a really good hoppy beer and was not overpowering, but instead, well balanced. It was more like and IPA than a pale, so if you are a hophead, try this. It’s great.
