Ibrew2or3 (8989) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 15, 2018
Rated April 2017, 22oz bomber pours with a crystal clear pure gold body that supports a thin light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up spicy malt nuanced garlic hops, a green smelling herbal hoppiness and then a semi soft grapefruit note. The taste delivers smooth slightly sweetened grapefruit and then growing spicy bitter hops. To midway a bitter floral hoppiness joins in at just the right level. Another sip and the malt thickened grapefruit hop bitterness and slight juiciness, bitter spicy hops and modest floral hops all meld and play well together. It becomes more and more floral as it warms. The lager sensation is very light and possibly imagined. Very nice brew.

Spab (4306) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 21, 2018
650 ml bottle from Premier Gourmet (courtesy of MK). Pours a clear golden colour with modest-sized white head. Aroma is citrus and pine with sweet breadiness. Flavour is lively citrus, light pine and solid bready malt. Average body. Really hides the ABV. Nice.

varanid99 (1417) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 17, 2017
Slightly hazy gold pour with a thin but long lasting white head, good lacing. Malty, pine and citrus aroma. It doesn't smell like a lager at all, which is always a bonus. Grainy, grapefruit, lemon, good long piney bitterness and grain finish. Pretty bloody good.

Panzuriel (2465) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - DEC 4, 2017
Appearance: Hazy light golden. Finger of white foam. Nose: A bit of lightly roasted malt with a good deal of citrus zest and grass. Taste: Lightly roasted malt with a bit of tropical fruit, grass and herbal hops. Body: Medium with lively carbonation. Parting thoughts: Nice stone collab beer. Out of production. Glad I snagged a bottle.

Hop_Hedonist (681) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 8, 2017
Bottle - massive bodied lager/pils - strays into golden ale, if not IPA territory - plenty of hoppy interest - well balanced - quite bitter - yeah I like it but don’t love it cos too much sweet malt.

ANZUShophunter (716) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 28, 2017
From bottle (2017 vintage) in shaker. Pours clear honey amber with wispy white head that laced nicely and mix of grassy and fruity (melon, tangerine) hop aroma. Rich taste with velvety mouthfeel and bitter accents in the finish. Top notch drop.

3.7
alobar (3993) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2017
Hazy golden yellow pour with lemon, grain, and pine aroma. Excellent lacing with citrus flavors, grain, some pine and a subtle hop bite. Very nice beer.

3.3
Fatehunter (2649) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 1, 2017
Looks nice with a finger of head on a slightly hazy straw body. Aroma is ripe lemon and wet grains. Taste is heavy grains, mild lemon and grapefruit bitterness. Texture is thicker.

Maris (1625) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 1, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2017 From a 650ml bottle on 1/10/217 (shared with Butz).The nose is citrussy, zesty and slightly spicy. Flavour wise, there's some biscuit, and heaps of fruit, lemon, lime, orange and peach, with some honey notes finishing things off. The hops are firm, and citrussy, providing a nice balance to the sweetness. Fullish body and moderate carbonation. Very nice indeed.
