12oz bottle, no date, poured into a Surly pint glass.
Pours a dark honey-gold, with a frothy white head on top. Great sticky lace holds on for dear life. "The nose, the nose, my kingdom for the nose." All things holy, this is an amazing aroma. Fresh hops, pine needles, citrus zest, and a dry hay-like aroma. Other beers have bits and pieces of this aroma, but this is so potent and so fresh. Frick. I want to "cologne-up" with this stuff.
The body is well-balanced and carbed up well. Crisp and clean, not too heavy. Holds its own with the ABV. Hops, hops, hops. Yes, please. Fresh green hops, grapefruit, melon, orange slices, honey - all melded perfectly to make this splendid beer. This beer is bitter, no doubt, but I love that it doesnít linger in any harsh manner. The finish is short, which I like and donít like at the same time. I like that it keeps me sipping (or gulping) more and more, but I donít like that my glass is soon empty, unable to be filled with this blessed brew again. More ZD, please!!!
Cloudy orange pour, generous white cloudy head. Citrus pine hops aroma. Firm, bitter and pleasant citrus hoppy taste. Firm mouth feel, carbonation prevalent, easy drinking.

Sampled from a 0.355l bottle @ Top Hops (BA) Bottleshare: Looks blurry golden in my little glass this and it has a small white head. May I say that this is a lovely nose? Cause it it. Wow! Freshnessbonanza. Lots if grass, fresh citrus and hedge. Almost herbal in a way with some citrus hints in the back. Really fresh and inviting. Yeah, fresh is a good word to describe this puppy. Super grassy with lots of fresh citrus, some faint yeast and green tea. Itís just lovely this! Imagine having access to this. 15.06.2013

Bottled 02/15/17. Pours clear orange, white head. Aroma is orange, caramel, grapefruit, pineapple, little bubblegum. Citrus heavy but a very prominent malt backbone. Flavor is citrus and pine heavy. Orange rind, pine, caramel backbone. Medium bitterness finish. Good body. Really solid, would revisit again. tmj399 (24) - Green Bay, Alabama, USA - MAR 1, 2017
Everything about this beer is a YES. Favorite packaging of all time. There are literally no flaws. Great on draught and in bottles. The fresher the better. Just wish it was available in my market so I didnít have to smuggle it up my way! strap (912) - Sindelfingen, GERMANY - MAR 1, 2017
Hazy golden pour. Big hoppy aroma, citrus and pine. Balanced flavor, with some orange and floral notes. Very well done

Poured from bottle into glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a nice head that dissipates, leaving a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus, maybe pine. Hops are very present. Medium body that has a fantastic finish! One of my favorite IPAís that Iíve had. Will travel many miles to get this.
