From the can of indeterminate age (3 plus years), it pours an ever so slightly hazy amber with a significant, fluffy, head. Citrus in the nose. Pine in the mouth. Yum!

This is good stuff but not as intense or tasty as New Belgium's Voodoo Ranger. Still very good. Big time hops in there .....if you are into hops, you will like this.

I like this a lot. Very tart, sharp piney hop taste. Aroma is more subdued hops. Pours clear golden with short head and sticky lacing. Aftertaste of tangy hops. Cheers!

Clear not quite copper with massive comically huge billowy white head.

Heavy carbonation allows the pungent hop bitterness to roll over the tongue. Fruit flavor is present but muddled - mostly citrus zest and vague Granny Smith tartness.

Overall ok. Not great.
