3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz can from Southern Season. Pours cloudy pale orangish with thick fluffy head. Aroma is punchy earthy hops. Taste is clean bitter somewhat harsh hops and light golden body. Hops are lacking in complexity, no citrusy or pine notes really. A bit one dimensional. I have to say, I never though I’d see a beer from Fuquay-Varina... the amount of growth in craft beer in the Triangle over the past 10 years is amazing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. can from Lighthouse. It pours a rich gold color with an off white head. The aroma has strong pine, florals and grapefruit with a fair amount of caramel malt. The flavor has more strong pine, grapefruit and sweet caramel/toffee. Full bodied and a little too sweet for me, but the hop character was strong and satisfying. Good bitter finish. Decent stuff.

Out of a can drank out of a tulip glass. At first sip this beer is smooth then quickly the hops show up bringing up citrus and pine notes with some pineapple. Big bite finish that bring this beer to a fantastic end! Very enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. 8/17/14. Pours a hazy gold-amber with a thin, white head. Aroma is spicy, tropical fruits, caramel, toffee, stewed oranges, mango, some grass, citrus is prominent. Taste is similar; dry tropical fruits, bitter grapefruit rind, pine, juniper, moderate bitterness, hint of caramel; finish is long and bitter, grapefruit rind. Lacking is thin but consistent. Medium-full bodied. Medium-low carbonation. The flavor is fine; the bitterness is very evident as is the alcohol. But the appearance and the aroma are especially engaging. It smells like brewing, which is really cool; it reminds me of every brewery I’ve walked into during brew day. I like that. the color is also very engaging and nice. Over all, more than decent. Enjoyable.
