Tap at Flying saucer Yes! This beer is as good as its hilarious name! Pours a beautiful dark Amber color surprisingly dark for an 6.6 ipa. Taste is an awesome sweet hop with a candy finish. Sweetness really hides the higher abv. This is a solid ipa! Could use a bit less sweetness and a little more hop bite. Other than that yes please to another!!

I’ve been sippin’ on that green all day! Tulip pour = smart. Nose is loads of sweet caramel and orange zest. Pour is blood orange colored with a good fluffy off-white head. Taste is mainly sweet, caramel malt backed by plenty of citrusy hops. The sweetness hits you upfront and finished with a long bitter note to balance things out. Good brew and very drinkable.

Draft at the Nook. Amber in the glass with a creamy off-white head that had some lasting and left thick lace. Aroma of resin hop, grass, and light malt. The flavor found light citrus resin and caramel. Light to medium body with a light hop aftertaste.

Bomber from Roy’s in Fort Pierce. Pours unclear orangey orange with some head, and some retention. Aroma has sweet hops and citrusy fruit, somewhat piney but quite syrupy sweet. Taste brings tangerine, sweet caramel, resin - very smooth. Finishes medium and mostly sweet. Quite hop-forward, without as much follow through as hoped, but some hop freshness certainly.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Draft. Pours a golden amber with a medium-sized white head. Aroma is mildly hoppy -- grassy, resinous, a bit earthy. Flavor is quite mild -- some nice musty, grassy, resinous hops well balanced against the mild maltiness. Medium mouthfeel. Dry, slightly bitter finish. Certainly less hoppy and pungent than I expected, but still quite tasty. Would definitely drink again.

Bottle pours amber with creme colored head. Aromas are faint for a fresh hop, but some floral and citrus come through. Taste is malty with some grassiness and mildly bitter more like a APA than an IPA. Not bad, but not that interesting. There are many other Fresh Hops that I would reach for before this one. Not too hoppy at all, very mild in fact.

Clear yellow with a hint of amber, big white head, retention, lacing... more malt than hops especially notable in the flavor, a toasty sweetness, lightly dry finish, medium to medium thin body.. hops are very tea like, hey i least i learned something

Pours a clear gold with a thick white head...great lacing. aroma has a pils malt flavor with a light sweetness...leafy, tea notes. Flavor is malty and sweet with a light grassiness...bit of hoppy spice. Mouthfeel is light and finish is slightly sweet. Shoudlve used many more boxes of hops...12 wasn’t enough...at all.
