Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy orange with thick white head. Robust tropical fruit aroma of melon, papaya, mango. Taste is moderately to heavily bitter. Lots of tropical fruit flavors similar to nose along with some orange and citrus notes. Awesome pale ale.

Bottle. Pale orange-yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is bright citrus and melon. Taste has some grassy notes as well, lots going on, a really interesting blend of hops. Balanced, rich and creamy with a dry finish. Quite nice.

Bottle in th’ dining room, jyst now! Christpuncher (3214) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2017
Pours a pale orangeish yellow with a good head & lots of lacing on the glass.
The aroma is fruity in a cool grapefruit on strawberry sort of way... it’s got a light cantaloupe aroma and despite all the fun fruit there’s not a ton of sweetness in the nose.
The flavor has a distinct musk melon & strawberry thing happening with a bit of grapefruit like bitterness. The sweetness is there but it’s subdued. Very clean & very fruit forward.
Maybe one of my favorite Xhops beers.
nose is absolutely amazing/ citrus explosion and dankness. flavor has a nice citrus dank combo that is perfectly balanced. pours a beauiful gold hazy color with a white head. had at kasers. love it. kaser (6409) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2017
Cloudy pinkish orange color, 22oz bottle at home. White head. Orange and apricot aroma. Taste is tropical fruit, tangerine, super fruity. Delicious brew fidelis83 (2523) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 7, 2017
Cloudy peach to burnt sienna pour with a tall, chunky off white head that has great retention and leaves some nice, chunky lacing. Aroma is cat box, dank, peach stone fruit, mellow tropical fruit a hint of pine a just a little sprouted garlic, some light bready sweetness. Flavor is sweet bready and crackery malt up front, lots of fruity notes going on right away, berry, sweet peach, juicy orange and some tropical fruit notes, some more garlic (not much, but it’s there) and a little odd sesame to the finish. Medium body, pretty creamy throughout, but with a building hop acid bite, fair dryness to the finish and light, but sharp carbonation. Good stuff overall, it definitely has some off notes, but they are not quite enough to drown out the good stuff going on. bytemesis (9345) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 6, 2017
