3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy light orange color, thick foamy inch of head, enough active carbonation to keep it around. Muted, bready aroma, some light sweetness, and some faint floral hop notes. Flavor shows some light spiciness, smooth sweet biscuits, and some crisp citrus. Flavor shows much improvement over the nose. Palate is also good- light, crisp, and clean. Overall, a pretty good pale with superb drinkability.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Cloudy dark yellow with an overwhelming head. The head dissipated slowly leaving brussels lace stranded on the glass. The aroma was sweet yet sour, both floral and fruity. The taste was soft and refreshing but nothing memorable or worth trying again. The carbonation hits you first followed by little else.

I love the golden color, the pure white foamy head, the light hop scent, the fruity malt profile. It’s light enough to serve as a refreshing summer session beer. Bit overpriced though for what it is.

Clear pour, big fluffy head and lace. Hoppy aroma. Nice carb and very hoppy, fruity with a floral flavor. Nice light piny hop, very refreshing.

Hazy yellow pour with a nose of some honey. Taste is mild bitter with a nice pale palate. Lingering bitterness on finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a golden body, with an average white head that diminishes fairly quickly, leaving a good lace. Faint hoppy aroma, really wanted more from this one. Taste was very refined though. Light to medium bitter, with notes of pine, very delicate, but not non-existant. LIght to medium body, average carbonation, watery texture. A nice APA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Hazy, golden, thick head and good lace. Honey malt nose. Lacks complexity. Malt dominates without much hop or yeast aroma. Dry, not sour and medium bitterness.
Nice beer but very one dimensional..

This brew just slams you over the head with it’s heavy floral aroma. Tons of carbonation....couldn’t pour even a couple of ounces without overflowing a twelve ounce glass.The taste is a little sour on the front end, then sweet on the finish. Crisp and dry.....overall, very nice

I might have made a mistake by trying this after sampling the Belks ESB...but the hops still came through loud & clear when I first tasted it. Nice maltiness up front followed by a pronounced citrusy hoppiness. smooth palate with decent carbonation. Very nice beer.
