rubbishystuff (2440) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2016 Guest tap at Lunar. A hop lozenge to be sure but something very sharp about the hops, some strange vegetable tastes too. I dont mean to sound like it was bad just something was a little off about it. Serving: Tap

Chucks 85th, Seattle. Soft white cap, mostly clear pale gold. Smooth, rich sip. Lots of onion, super ripe fruit with a strong bitter finish. Strawberry, sorta, with plenty of grassy hops. Biscuit malt base. This grows incredibly bitter and features just a massive depth of hop. Reminds me of the ultra high IBU trend of years past. Plenty of flavor, and this isnt bad, but the alpha hop explosion is taking even me back. Round, juicy body underneath that flavor at end. Nice.

JoTheO (166) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2017
On tap @ Queens Head Stockholm. Hazy yellow with a creamy head. This is fully packed with elegant citrusy and resinous hops. Great! Also, its a dry mouthfeel with low maltiness. This is one for the hop heads.

minihame2 (566) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 13, 2017
Hazy, pale yellow colour and a small, creamy, white head. Aroma is light hops, some grapefruit. Taste is hoppy and the hops get even more intense towards the end. Not super bitter but quite dry. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel, easy on the carbonation. Overall its alright but the taste is pretty much only hops which Im not too fond of.

Turboninja (702) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2016
[email protected] Medium, slightly bitter aroma with citrus and light mango. Lighter yellow color with small white head and hazy liquid. Medium, averagely balanced taste with citrus-like fruits and some hops. A hint of malts. Narrow/medium taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with hoppy malts. Light/medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, simple and bit rough, though refreshing.
