On tap at Papago. Live rate! Pours a mellow gold color with steady carbonation and a trim off-white head. Smells attractively of orange zest and grass. Tastes of salt, bitter hops, and cotton. Crisp up front, but really dry on the back of the pallate. Seems lacking an element of sweetness,

Draft at Papago during RBWG from backlog notes. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale toasted malts, citrus and resiny hops, hints of tropical fruit, herbal notes, with lighter floral character mainly on the nose, dry, hop character lingered.

Pailhead (6539) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 8, 2013
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate tropical fruits, mango, citrus, grapefruit, and pine. Its a transparent amber with a small white head that leaves a good amount of webbing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light tropical fruits before some moderate peach flavors take over in the middle. The finish has moderate citrus and pine. Its light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, I love citrus hops...but Im not generally a fan of sweet peach, so I could do without those flavors.

mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAR 8, 2013
At OHSO brewery in Phoenix, on tap. Pours copper and quite clear. Fairly balanced with nice hoppy bitterness, but not too much. Not much of a malty backbone and a wee bit thin. Recommended nonetheless!

DiarmaidBHK (4511) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Draft at Papago brewing. Pours golden with a thin white head. Big floral and pine notes on the nose. Big hop taste on the tongue with a fair amount of bitterness that dries out the mouth for the finish. Solid.

FlacoAlto (4176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Sampled March 2011 at Papago; RBWG
The beer arrives from the tap with a clear, copper color that is topped by a pale tan head. A big, fruity, tropical fruit focused aroma just jumps out of the glass; notes of lychee, mango, huge hemp notes, definitely dank, with a full herbaceousnous, just hop-a-licious, even after swalling each sip the bountiful hop character just lingers on creating flavors in my mouth. The hop aromatics also has huge floral blossom notes, as well as a big, general tropical fruit character. The dank character here is quite noticeable, though it is a lessor contributor than the fruit notes.

The beer tastes nice and fry, it is light bodied and quite quaffable. This has big tropical frui flavors the meld with a more muted citrus character, as compared to the aroma; the austere, dry malt character definitely reduces the fruit character a bit, there is enough malt sweetness to not overly mute the fruit-hop character though. A hint of cracker like flavors in the finish are the only real malt flavor contribution here. This has a spritzy carbonation to it. Sharper hop notes provide a very green, herbaceous hop character that even has some chive like flavors.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2012
A clear orange/golden colored beer, with a thick white head. The aroma of fruits, some sweet, citrus and hop. The taste is fruity sweet, bitter hop and some spices. The aftertaste is bitter for awhile and a little sweet.

Draft. Poured hazy copper color with an average to large frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy lemon citrus hop aroma. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Solid brew.

On tap at Papago and from a growler. Its a light copper color with nice head and lacing. Smell is fruity with mainly citrus. Taste is the same as the smell but with a spicy note to it. Ive been wanting to try this one for a while and it didnt disappoint. Overrall its a solid IPA worth trying.
