Skyview (6099) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Picked up a four-pack at Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, MN. Pours a semi-clear golden amber colored brew with a decent size off-white head that leaves behind some excellent lacing and a rocky head. Aroma of grapefruit, piney hops, a hint of caramel malt and some light tropical fruit. Taste is medium bodied, flavors of citrus zest, some light pine that hides the caramel malt. Finish is a touch sweeter than the 2011 version of 100% Citra, with a shorter lingering bitterness aftertaste. Nice to have the tangerine/tropical fruit return for the 2012 vintage.

16oz can to tulip. Pours clear gold orange, white short head. Aroma of pepper, ok, pineapple, mango, caramel, biscuits, honey, grass. Excellent aroma, but is very faint. Taste of same with lots of juicy citrus, spice and some herbal in the finish. Not quite as exceptional as previous years.

Can. Gold pour with a creamy head. Nice bright citrus nose. Grapefruit meat and lemon peel. Mildly resinous. Flavor is fairly bitter. Light onion. Plenty of juicy citrus meat. Slight woodiness. Fairly restrained malt profile. Active carbonation. Easy drinking considering the ABV. Nice.

16 oz. can sampled at Mark’s gigantic tasting. Pours a barely cloudy gold with a small white head that fades. Kind of soapy, with citrus peel, pale and cereal malts, straw, and sugars. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bitter, sweet, smooth mouthfeel. It’s fine, but doesn’t leave much of an impression. The other year(s) I’ve had of this worked better for me.

Love the tart flavored I get with this one. Well balanced, slightly bitter but I enjoy that part. Not my favorite wet hopped beer but definitely up there.

On tap at Bulldog Uptown with commonshawn. Served up in a pint glass. Light orange and golden with a healthy head of a quarter finger in size. Nose is floral with hoppy pine and citrus characteristics. Taste is a slight surprise as it doesn’t carry the signature Surly bitterness. Leans on a really high quality citrus (grapefruit and tangerine) and resin backbone. Very smooth and easy to drink with a light syrup like viscosity. Very well balanced...like Surly used a little restraint for a change. One of the better Surly beers I’ve tried recently. I don’t even want to dry off.

commonshawn (1333) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 28, 2015
Tap at bulldog uptown with commonmac. Pint glass. Copper with medium white head and good lacing. Medium hop aroma. Mouthfeel is very smooth, oily, and pleasant. Much less hop bitter punch than I expect from this brewery, which was welcome. Alcohol well hidden. Good balance. This was a very enjoyable beer to drink.

Thanks Sam!

Poured a honey, hazy color with two fingers of off-white, frothy head. Some bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Below average spotty foamy spots of lacing on the sides of the glass. Good retention. (Sight - 3.75)

Smelled underwhelming hints of lime, pine, Citrus zest, soap, caramel, spicy Simcoe late and some tropical notes. Really not as potent as I would have thought. Reminded me of Surge soda and maybe even some Mountain Dew. (Smell - 3.25)

Tasted better than the nose and different than maybe anything I’ve had before. Got those citrus notes - lime, pine, lemon zest, soap and Surge soda - up front. Also tropical, pineapple, herbal, grass, some tartness, floral and light tangerine rind. Clean and crisp, with the alcohol well hidden (Taste - 4.00)

Medium body. Oily, sticky texture. Average carbonation. Long, citrusy finish. (Feel - 4.25)

This beer really grew on me as it went down. Thankful for Sam hooking me up as always. (Taste - 4.00)

Can thanks to Bursprak. Pours llmost clear golden with a white head. Aroma of herby hops, some plenty notes and some pine. Also some citrus notes as well. The taste is herby, plenty and has notes of dry pine. Also some grassy notes and some citrus. Okay, but pretty one-sided in some areas.

Hoprider (745) - DENMARK - NOV 15, 2015
Clear golden, light off white head. The nose is light fruity with spicy hops similar to a hoppy pilsner. A little flowery sesnsation too. Taste : full hoppy flavours, some fruity, some light dank notes with a good lightly malty body. Full mouthfeel. A nice, only slightly bitter aftertaste.
