andersand (529) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2009
Hazy copper colour with a rocky off white head. Aroma is hoppy with notes of pineapple, passionfruit and nose tickleing citrus. Flavour is more maltforward with Sierras standard profile + allot of sweet and fruity hop notes. Ends on a balanced but bitter note. Mouthfeel is smooth and a bit sticky. From decent to good depending on freshness.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 19, 2009
Dark orange colored with little yellow head, cloudy appearance. Pine and flowers come up with lemon and some soapy note. Medium bodied. Flavor is also piny with peach and some flowers, aftertaste gets strongly bitter with pine still lasting, somehow soapy palate.

mikkopen (1164) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2009
350 ml bottle. Slightly hazy amber colour, medium-sized white head that leaves a little lacing. Lovely aroma of grapefruit & other citrus fruits and floral hops. Caramel-malty, dryish flavour with a strong and long, bitter finish of pine, citrus fruits and hops. Delicious.

Lalli (243) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 19, 2009
Bottle. Lovely pale amber color, with a nice white head. Nose is fresh with grape fruit and malts as the dominant features. Flavor is very nicely balanced. The fruity hops are certainly the dominating force, but they compliment the malty body in a splendid way. All in all a very nice brew (as is usually the case with this brewer).

Clear reddish golden colour with small white head. Sweetish fresh delicious fruity piney hoppy aroma. Dry bitter hoppy flavour with pine, grapefruit and resin. Long lasting dry bitter hoppy aftertaste.

pours a deep golden hue with a little white head, almost non exsistant. taste is smooth on palate. bitterness is quite upfront on the palate and lingers for quite some time. hops are very citrus, piney. fantastic combo

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 15, 2009
Pours light amber with an off white head. Aroma is fruity, citrusy hops. Flavor is a nice blend of citrusy, floral, and piny hop flavors. Pretty good.

topherh (1928) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - DEC 14, 2009
Pours orange with an off white head. Aroma is pine and citrus hops and a bit of caramel malt. Flavor is big on hops, mostly pine and a little citrus, with a bit of caramel.

3.8
OzarkElmo (319) - Poplar Bluff, Missouri, USA - DEC 14, 2009
Pours a deep, hazy orange with moderate beige head, mostly diminishing. Aroma of hops and grass with orange, grapefruit, yeast and tangerine noticeable. Light caramel malt presence. Taste is fairly dry and very bitter, lingering after finish. All of this is done very well as a hoppy, yet balanced pffering. Excellent lacing through the finish - Cheers to Chico!
