Draft at Churchkey. Clear golden. Nice citrus aroma. Overwhelming bitter taste, too much for my buds to handle.

mcberko (17178) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 21, 2011
12 oz. bottle, pours a slightly hazy but mostly clear golden orange with a small white head. Loads of resinous hops on the nose with substantial caramel malt to balance. Flavour is intensely bitter with citrusy hops dominating the profile with little malt balance to detect. Some orange peel / lemon zest in there as well. Quite good, though this is way out of balance. Enjoyable nonetheless.

yngwie (17038) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2015
Bottle. A hazy, dark golden to amber beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is rather piney, with resins, pine cones and a touch of pale malts. Bitterness, pale malts, resins and a nice citrusy, piney hoppyness. Full body and a nice carboonation level, with some palte malts, resins and grapefruit peel. Lasting resiny finish. Not bad this one, but nothing extraordinary going on. 150621
