Swing top to taster at the RBWG Grand Tasting. Looks solid; a semi-transparent gold with thin white lacing. Smells and tastes solid; grassy hops with a nice, balanced mouthfeel. Good beer! Leighton (22823) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2013
Growler at RBWG 2013 Grand Tasting. Thank you! Pours clear, bright yellow with a slight, white cream head. Piss and citrus aroma...lovely. Medium sweet flavor, delicate grapefruit, light urine, some pale grass. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Incredibly balanced to finish, no abrasive bitterness, no alcohol kick, just fluid citrus fruits and balancing pale malt sweetness. Superb. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Deep yellow pour with white head and lace. Aroma is hard citrus hops and malt. Sweet maltiness and a hard resiny bitter. Medium body with good carbonation. A very nice beer jmm635 (1017) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Pours light orange with a nice creamy head. Sweet malt, juicy fruit, and hop resin aromas. Sweet flavor with string bitterness for balance. Quite enjoyable. Atom (2599) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Growler pours a cloudy peach/orange yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of resinous pine, I’d agree with the cat pee here, tropical fruits, peach, orange, earthy grass, with a slight caramel malt. Taste is grassy, resinous, almost spearmint, mango, finishing with a sticky bitterness. Lots of interesting favors here.

On tap at Tired Hands with Janine. Pours translucent yellow-orange with a thick, frothy white head. Aroma of clementines and fresh peaches, maybe a touch of tart strawberry. Taste is full of pineapple and fresh, dank hop resin. Mouthfeel is warm, clean, and very bitterly hoppy. Finishes with some bitter orange and sweet pineapple. Super fresh DIPA. Really great beer.

Growler from THBC. Pours an opaque golden straw color. nose is lime, cotton candy malty goodness, juicy fruits. first sip is papaya then pineapple, other juicy fruits. finish is Funions, and citrus peal. beautifully inventive beer. joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 12, 2013
32 ounce growler. It pours a light yellow color with a white head. Very light for a IIPA. The aroma has a faint crackery maltiness and a powerful onslaught of citrusy and spicy/oniony hops. Grapefruit and very mild notes of pineapple. The flavor has a bit more of the pineapple and mango, grapefruit and a spicy bitterness near the finish. Very light bodied and dry. Dang, this is easy drinkin for a 9% IIPA! Really nice hop profile. Solid bitter finish. riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Lock this bitch in ho-mos. Rare beer boom! Nose of pineapple and mango dough pine dank and citrus/passion fruit. Pours hazy yellow orange thin white head great lace. Flavors of pineapple dough passion fruit a little catty. Very fruity finish. Smooth body medium carbonation. bvc (1244) - Washington, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Growler, thanks Frank! Unfiltered bright gold, dense white head decent splotchy lacing. Mostly pineapple, guava, tropical hop aromatics...catty, pine resinous is very low, but present. Doughy malt with dry bitter clean yeast that adds slightly to the fruitiness. Great carb, solid semi chewy mouth feel. Different hop profile then we see on the west coast, but well made and just an enjoyable well done hop forward beer.
