Draft pour at Smoke & Barrel, DC. Hazy golden yellow color pour, with a small white head. Aroma was earthy citrus notes. Some woody wine notes. I got some tartness in this, but I don't know if that was intentional or not. ClarkVV (6839) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 26, 2017

A deep, ripe, canteloupe orange with brass and copper hues and a moderate haziness, displaying an off-white head atop of moderately-low retention.
Strong melon, red grapefruit, lime and finally the wine and passion fruit from the Nelson, all show through clearly and nicely in the nose. Soft, honey and white bread-like malts underneath with a touch of light cereal and/or dough. It’s "soft" fairly juicy and shows only a touch of pine and grapefruit, given its centennial and simcoe pedigree. Clean and with only light alcohol esters.
Juicy and with a doughy and sweet malt character. Some light blandness but a growing white wine-like flavor that is in turn enveloped by grapefruit and leafy, green, fairly lush pine (low resin). Carbonation is a tad loose, but it’s well-attenuated and the flavors are quite expressive. A touch of cereal/dough that I don’t love and light resin grows somewhat as it warms and breathes.
Sample at The Festival in Atlanta. Hazy golden yellow color white head with good retention and solid lacing. Nice aroma of earthy citrus and white wine. Taste is earthy, not quite dank, fresh hay and light lemon. Delicious. j12601 (13027) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 18, 2017

Overall a very well crafted beer. It's definitely fruity and I smell pineapple and maybe a citrus. It does have a toffee after flavor that's not the most pleasant

Can from Table and Vine. LIght pine spice and citrus aroma. Medium light tropical toffee and toffee sweetness that unfortunately lingers til the end. Medium-heavy herbal old citrus woody bitterness that lingers along with toffee. This combo of hops just doesn’t do it for me. Medium body enough very fine carbo to accentuate hops and stimulate the taste buds. Good. Braudog (6803) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUL 30, 2017
Can. Golden-hazy-orange, with a bit of a thin but foamy top. This has a seductive aroma, hinting at fruity hops and glory. Indeed, this delivers ... rich with full-on American hoppy dreaminess. Milky, tropical, sticky. I love it. (#6725, 7/30/2017) bytemesis (8970) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 23, 2017
Can. Pours hazy golden, large white head, dissipates fairly quickly, good lacing. Aroma is tropical and dank, lemongrass, papaya, pot. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, juicy, guava, pot, pine. Medium-light body. ganache (6029) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 23, 2017
Pint can from State Line, should be RB rating #5900 for me. Very strong nose heavy lemon and citrus rind, grapefruit, Citra-like, actually, dash mango. Pour hazy-cloudy golden with an off-white head. Taste light-medium bitterness once the strong charge of sweetness is done balancing it, faint tang, relatively smooth but tightly crisp full body; heavy, little hints of alcohol here and there but generally very smooth, huge citrus, light floral, medium dough, very low resin, light mango and guava. Caramel very subdued, this one’s about the juice. Light pine and a richer base malt come through to me with volume. Clean and colorful, bright. bold, and very heavy for the abv feedback -- some milkshake character. [2017.07.23: 3.7]
