Pour from a 12oz bottle. Medium brown brew with off white head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops. Great bitter blast on a thin malt backbone. Nice cirtus finish. Well done brew. gonzosauce (157) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 14, 2013
An ultra tropical aroma with fresh yellow grapefruit dominating the nostrils. Very yellow with a golden head. The flavor is more astrigent than expected, with plenty of CO2, but as crisply hoppy as a balanced beer can get. Easy drinking with very present hops. An easy win, but I did find it to ’pale’ in comparison to gumballhead... and to anyone who says they favor this over two hearted, just don’t whack anybody while you’re waving your three handed flag. This beer really, really rocks... but I do think it’s pretty hyped. I’ll blind taste it when I get the chance and check back in. JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - MAY 13, 2013

Bottle @ ZeeBra Extreme Beer Festival 2013. Clear golden pour. Aroma of super fresh and huge hops, floral, fruity, very clean and full. Flavor is slightly bitter, very fruity. Lovely smooth. Great brew. BRW (3054) - Barcelona, SPAIN - MAY 9, 2013
On tap at CBC. Golden-amber colour with white head. Herbal and citric hoppy aromas. Herbal and resinous hoppy taste, with caramel hints. Bitter ending. Nateburn (11) - - MAY 8, 2013
Thanks to John for the bottle! Hop aroma is hard to discern in the bottle. Hop flavor is full of mango. A very well rounded beer. Bitterness is just right.
