33ml Bottle at Sijf. A very well made beer but didn’t excite me too much. Have had many alike before (Brooklyn east IPA?) joepbeer (1) - Harrisonburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 5, 2017 does not count
Wow, is this a good beer! I’d not tried it before because I thought the name was a bit hokey, but I’m not sure if ales get any better than this. Wonderful flavor and balance. Just as well I only included one bottle in the sampler six-pack I just bought. So many micro-brewery beers and so little time to taste them all -- seems like there ought to be a law against that. I will continue my quest for the perfect beer but in the meantime this one is going to be in the fridge as one of my reference standards.

Pours near clear golden with an initial froth that fades quickly to a ring. Aroma is amazing - bread dough, biscuit, a slight sweet of citrus. I could sniff this all day. Flavor brings more hop punch to the mix with the start of the sip with more citrus character and a hint of pine. Unlike so many current dipas, this mild bitter tang is very well balanced by a never-overdone malt backbone, near perfect in the balance to remain smooth and only medium-bodied. Finish is incredibly smooth, a slight sweet fades to a lasting mild bitter, insisting on another sip. The smoothness and drinkability is remarkable. bhensonb (15355) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 17, 2017
Bottle from the TJ’s in Davis, CA. Pours orangey gold with a white head. Aroma of pale stone fruits. Med body or so. Flavor is fruit, a little malty and something light orange follows. Not entirely dry, but nicely bitter. Quite pleasing. PugUglyBrewer (707) - - JUL 16, 2017
Clean dark gold color with a fluffy, blanketing head of thick white foam. Complex aromas and flavors that come off as Captain Crunchberries. A touch of tropical fruit and sweet citrus dancing all around all leading to a moderately dry pine sap finish. oobawa (1505) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 10, 2017
Big hoppy, wheaty boogeyman, combining the sweet banana and booze base of an imperial hefeweizen with Lagunitas orange hop madness. Very, very fruity on the back end, orange marmalade meshing with slight hints of dank and pine. Perfect texture, effervescent but not overly so, with the alcohol hidden. Nose is no great shakes, but damned if it isn’t a pretty pint, brigt straw gold with ample head and lace. Solid. aholmes987 (23) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 26, 2017
Pours a light yellow, aroma is fresh light citrus and stone fruit. Very soft for 8.5%. Lovely
