Designed by NASA scientists, THRUST! is structured to attack you senses. First, it burns into your visual cortex the image of a beer with a deep copper hue topped with a rocky white head. Soon your olfactory bulb should be awoken as the massive dry-hop propels a penetrating aroma of grapefruit, mango, grape, stone fruit and lychee hurling into your forebrain.

Resisting the impulse to keep smelling the beer, you pound back a gulp which illicits a poking and prodding of tropical fruit and resin on your taste buds. Your pallet soon succumbs as THRUST! penetrates and perforates, eventually becoming your new reality.

Lots of pine like a Rocky Mountain incense basket. Some grapefruit peel. Golden amber pour with good head and lacing. Very bitter. Tap at Bar Hop Brewco.

Kauge (1949) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 21, 2016
Tap at Bar Volo. Somewhat hazy golden/amber with smallish off-white head. The aroma’s really nice, full, warm and fruity, peachy and tropical. Tastes sweet, grapefruit and orange, passion-kind of vitamin C zing on the tongue. Like drinking tinned pineapple juice. Crispish, full, very nice. Vitamin C tingle lingering.

Radek Kliber (7352) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 25, 2016
Where and how: on tap at Volo
Aroma: nice, pleasant , rounded feel. Good balancing backing of malt. Mild tartness, hinted with grape skin and mango.
Appearance :
Top: smaller than typical IPA, some rings on glass.
Base: hazy golden ale
Palate : medium bodied, soft carbonation, average for style finish.
Taste: mellow hoppy ale, drinkable and very smooth , easy going. At this strength this one is dangerous session ale.

On tap @ Buster Rhino's Oshawa. Pours a mildly hazy gold with a thick white head. Aromas are rich tropical fruit and citrus with a touch of pine resin. Tastes are also very fruit and citrus heavy with only a moderate pine bite. Medium body, rich and creamy, long resinous finish. This is a great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

A fresh can of thrust, canned two days before. The floral hop notes were very pronounced, lovely tropical nose and flavours. Definitely one of my favourites from Great Lakes!

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 17, 2015
Pours a clear golden orange with a big frothy white head. Aroma of citrus oranges, stone fruit, grapes, tropical fruits, mangos, orange zest and light medicinal notes. Taste is orange zest, tropical fruits, mangos, guava, grapes, grapefruit and some light medicinal...smooth bitterness and a wicked dry finish. Lightly astringent medicinal character on the finish is the only thing wrong with this but wow this is a great beer!
