Great beer. I Had it from the tap at the Blue Lobster Store. Very crisp taste? It has sweet pine and fruit flavor. This beer is very flavorable. The color is golden brown with a very thick white head. The smell was strong and very good. This is one of those beers that is very hard to get but worth it, if you can get your hands on it.

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, straw-gold coloring with a frothy, foamy, bright white head. Good retention and great cling. Nose of resiny hops, heavy pine and pitch, with a subtle toasty backbone. Wow! Flavors of rich toast and floral notes forward, with a bitter and resin hops follow. Very balanced, with a biscuit and bitter aftertaste. Hoppy enough to challenge IPAs. Dry, clean finish, with a bitter hop linger. Awesome beer!

Gold Claw pours a hazy, gold color with some amber hues with a moderate sized creamy head on top. As the foam fades away a coating of lace remains on the sides of the glass.
The aroma is very hoppy. Lots of orange and grapefruit citrus with notes of pine and some pale malt sweetness mixed in.
Each sip of this medium bodied beer is soft and slightly chewy with moderate carbonation and a dry finish. The flavor is much like the aroma, lots of orange and grapefruit citrus with some pine notes and hints of tropical fruit. Malty sweetness balances out the hops. It finishes with a grassy bitterness and once gone the citrus and bitterness linger on the palate.
This is a very tasty beer with lots of hops. Easy to drink and with a low abv can be enjoyed all day long. Best enjoyed fresh.

The beer pours pale gold, bordering on straw yellow with a light creamy white head of tiny bubbles, which fade away into a scrim leaving a splotchy lacing along the glass. In body the beer is clean of all particles and expresses only a slight chill haze. On the nose this beer is beautifully bright and expressive, featuring prickly pine that morphs into lush and juicy citric pineapple and orange with light touches of grapefruit and mango. The nose of this beer alone easily stands up there with some of the best APA’s in America. On the tongue the beer tastes dry and complex with faint hints of sweeter bready malt and a faint touch of acidity from the hops. This beer is supremely balanced, however, with no aspect really overpowering the others. In flavor the beer begins as sweet juicy citric hops, blended with light fluffy malt. Eventually prickly pine works its way through the hop flavor, and even suggests pineapple briefly on the palate, but the malt character stays steady and strong providing a beautiful backbone for the hops to paint upon with light fluffy malt bread. In the mouth, the beer feels crisp, clean, and natural. The finish is of bright citric hops working beautiful bitter and juicy characteristics across the tongue that can’t quite be placed. The aftertaste is bitter with a lingering touch of very light bready malts. Carbonation is light and fluffs through the mouth, beautifully caressing the tongue. The beer feels on the highest point of light in body, just below medium, and is hugely drinkable, while the mouth is left dry and rather clean with just a light malty flavor linger in the mouth. The mouth is left begging to be wet again. Overall this is a hell of a session ale, and a hell of an APA. It is hugely complex in its hop character, and provides a beautiful malt canvas for the hops to work upon. This beer is perfect for the summer, and could be knocked back all day and night long. As soon as it leaves your mouth you just want more of it. Try this beer for sure!
