Koelschtrinker (22514) - KÃ¶ln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Der Antrunk ist nur kurz hopfig, dahinter deutlich wässrig, bevor die intensive Bitterkeit zuschlägt und den Hopfen weit in Abseits drängt. Kurz darauf regiert plötzlich die Wässrigkeit, trotz den Bitternoten ist und bleibt das Bier nun wässrig. Nur noch wenig hopfig, nicht fruchtig, holzig-bitter. Ein IPA, das erstaunlich wenig Hopfenaroman aufweist. 7/8/8/7/8/8

Bottle thanks to John. Pours light apricot gold with white head. Nose and taste of pineapple husk, pine wood, spruce, caramel malt and light resin. Finishes dry and piney. Medium body. DSG (15519) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 1, 2009
Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks David Cohen. Slightly hazy golden. A pleasant citric and floral aroma. Very dry and bitter flavor with grapefruits. Medium-bodied. Dogbrick (14391) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 15, 2008
Thanks to Rogueone for sharing a bottle. This brew is a hazy golden-yellow color with a medium thick and fluffy white head that diminishes slowly. Aroma of herbal hops, Fruity Pebbles and malt. Medium body with flavors of sweet malt, hops and zesty citrus fruit, but an off adhesive bandage flavor that pretty much ruins the whole thing. The finish is malty and sweet with a strong Band-Aid aftertaste. I can only assume something happened to this bottle. Lubiere (14352) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2012
A murky hazed amber IPA with a thin lacing creamy light mocha head. In aroma, classic floral c-hops, pungent and meaty, with light grassy notes. In mouth, a nice smooth biscuit malt with herbal floral hops citrus notes, grassy, OK. On tap at Lord Hobo, July 15, 2012.

(GABF05) Clear apple juice body with off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, pine, some grapefruit. Taste is medium sweet, strong pine, some grapefruit. Light-medium body with nice resin. Pleasantly aggressive. hopdog (13315) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2006 12oz shared bottle (thanks Josh). Poured a medium amber with a small sized off white head. Aromas of light citrus, light caramel, earthy and buttery. Tastes of earthiness, some pine and citrus. Lighter bitterness factor. Josh had a few more bottles and will verify if the butteriness is present in those as well. I’d like to try the tap version as the bottle version was disappointing. Like the seductress on the label, she lured me in and then let me down! 5 3 6 3 12

The butteriness was definitely gone. The previous bottle must have had ’something’ happen to it. Floral. Lightly spicy. Grapefruit finish. Somewhat earthy. Nicely bitter and would have guessed it was higher than 50 IBU.
(Bottle) Pours a hazy golden body with a rocky off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma of floral, grapefruit, and a hint of pine. Flavor of floral hops, grapefruit zest/peel and caramel. Sammy (13148) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2008
What turned out to be a small bottle for three of a superior American IPA. Only IPA and yet so well the hops in aroma and taste. Citrus aroma i was, a cloudy grapefruit with soapy head. Mouthfeel is creamy, and grapefruit taste. A lot of hops..must be there. Can’t get enough to sample multiple times. deyholla (12702) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle at the RBWG 2014 grand tasting, thanks! Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. ARoma has a bit of grassiness with light pine and a light grain backing. Flavor has more resinous pine with light grains and a hint of grass.
