douglas88 (8749) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 5, 2016
Bomber. Pours a clear orange color with a medium white head. A big bouquet of floral and citrus hops. Very fresh citrus, this reminds me a bit of Zombie Dust, melon, some light grains. Very smooth and super tasty. Great.

jackl (7355) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 12, 2016
Bottle sourced from a random bottle shop in Minneapolis. Slightly hazy golden pour with a full white head. Nose is fairly engaging. Plenty of citrus zest. Some underarm. Flavor is bitter and dry. A bit chalky. More citrus, sea grass. A bit of tropical pineapple character. Slightly green, sharp bitterness that holds the experience back a bit. Mellow sweet biscuit. Medium body, strong carb.

undsioux7 (872) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2016
Pours a deep yellow/orange with a medium pillowy white head. Aroma is straight bitter hops from the warrior and danker tropical fruits from the galaxy. Taste is tropical fruits up front with grapefruit rind in the middle with straight punch you in the mouth hops in the back end. A touch thin but just pure hops.

Mr_Abner (357) - Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Bomber. Pours a lightly hazy orange with a white head that leaves behind a mess of lacing half way through the glass. Aromas of ripe tropical fruit, passion fruit, citrus, slight pine. A medium bitterness that builds and lingers. Some light fruit up front in the taste. Carbonation is soft, medium bodied, a touch creamy. Long bitter finish.

muzzlehatch (4911) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 27, 2016
22 ounce bottle from Badger Spirits in Beloit, WI, served a little below cellar temp in a pint glass. Massive creamy snow-white meringue head takes forever to die down atop the very clear gold-amber body and laces thickly, beautiful...juicy citric nose, hints of honeysuckle and lilac, tropical fruits, just a touch of pine resin that comes out gradually...nicely balanced sweet-bitter balance on the palate, the juicy honeyd fruits slowly giving way to a fairly sharp hop attack at the dryish finish, light acidity throughout, a bit of fruity juice remains at the very finish, apricots drenching bitter almonds...full, lightly syrupy, as always with this brewery a near-perfect carbonation level. This brewery does so well with hoppy beers that I run out of superlatives; I will just leave it by saying that heres another fine example, and if its a little less exciting than some of the others thats probably because to my tastesbuds these hops are not the most interesting choices. But its beautifully brewed and a solid drinker regardless.

650ml bottle from the Malt Shoppe in Tosa. Shared with bananabi11. Terrifically bittersweet. Some pine. Some tropical fruits. Quite light, and quite tasty. 14

22oz bottle poured at home. Bottle picked up at the brewery - no bottling date that I can see, but it appears to be super fresh. Amazing aroma and a crisp taste. Plenty of carbonation and glass lacing. Awesome beer TGB!

22oz bomber. From the brewery 2 days ago. Aroma is Citrus, orange, tang. Hop resin, slight potpourri. Taste is very bitter, orange rind, resinous hops. Some cereal malt, but light for the hops and bitterness.
