Bottle. Pours lightly hazy orange with a medium, fizzy white head, frothy-rocky, with fair retention and good lacing. Aroma is lightly toasted biscuit malt with grain and straw notes, huge hops (flowers, resin, pine, citrus) with light fruity yeast esters. Flavor has malt beginnings with a huge hop flavor, moderate hop bitterness; peach, apricot, and pineapple fruit notes with a dry finish. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, and a spicy palate. j12601 (13297) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 4, 2010
On tap at Buckeye on our way to RBSG. Pours a hazed grey to brown with a medium sized beige head. Toasty and nutty, hoppy citrus and toast. Spicy, subtle and complex. Does have a bit of a strawberry flavor, the very seedy ones. Nutty and juicy. Light alcohol, long tannins and grapefruit bitterness. bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2010
(22oz bottle) Pours a clear yellow body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of sweaty socks, pine resin, grass, earth, and some citrus. Flavor of peach up front with pine, grass, metal, and grapefruit. Finishes dry and bitter. slowrunner77 (13202) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 4, 2014
"nice beer for sure. a fusion between a west coast imperial and an english ipa. hops are big, but less floral and fruit, and more pepper. different yet familiar. quite frikkin tasty, though not quite as awesome as last years." hopdog (13191) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2010
22oz bottle. Poured a deeper and cloudy golden/yellow color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of citrus, some floralness, and earthy. Tastes of citrus, pineapples, caramel, lighter earthiness, and a little spicy.

Medium golden with white topping head. Understated aromas of the hops, the yeast. Mouthfeel a tad above average. A decent not over-the-top bitterness. Will try this again.

Bottle. [thanks for getting me a bottle, joergen]deyholla (12582) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 11, 2010
Pours hazy pale yellow with a firm, frothy, white head. Good duration. Aroma is lovely fruity hoppy. Good grapefruit, peach, apricot, lemony. Medium carbonation, very creamy and kinda fat mouthfeel. Flavour has a good dose of lemony hops at first, quite citric bitter. Some mild maltiness in the middle giving it a good mouthfeel. Long, lingering bitter finish with some grapefruit and peach. Lightly warming. Nice.
On tap. Poured a cloudy deep gold with a white head that dissipated slowly to the edges and laced nicely. Aroma had pine and sweet grains with a bit of caramel. Flavor had a strong pine note accompanied by a slight grapefruit note and a bit of grain backing. Pinball (12568) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2010
cloudy yellow, small smooth white head
hoppy aroma, also slightly flowery.
flavor is hoppu, mild pine and grapefruit, malty base. okay, bordering to fine ipa, but not out of the ordinary. jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - NOV 9, 2010
22oz bottle-thanks decaturstevo for sharing-pours a retaining thin white head with yellow color. Aroma is lemon/pine that gains a mustiness. Taste is biting lemon/pine hops with some sweetness, light malt.
