A clear vibrant golden color with finger of white head. Smells of grass, green onion, seaweed, tangerine, mango, orange. Taste is a piney, dank hop, orange rind, cantaloupe, onion. Hops are on point with just enough sweetness. A small bit of bitter stays on the tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at the Lincoln Wine Bar. It was quite drinkable, but nothing really stands out in memory--very drinkable pale ale.

Sort of old bottle shared. The beer is a clear gold with a white head of foam. The aroma has citrus and some spunky notes. The taste is more sweet and has just mild notes of bitterness. The skunky notes are pretty prevalent. Medium to low carbonation. Medium body.

AirForceHops (5264) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 24, 2016
12 oz. bottle that has a Julian calendar code on it. Hazy gold, slow steady carbonation. Aroma has mild grass, hints of dankness. And a strange floral note, looked at the deScription, yep... Calypso hops.

All truth told Calypso is a variety of hops I have not been impressed with. 2015 seemed to be the year of Mosaic hop (which I enjoy most of the time) but this odd floral note I get from Calypso just hits me wrong. The citrus is decent. The body is medium and it does have a crisp aftertaste. Perhaps if I ever see it on draft I will give it another chance.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2016 Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from One Stop Market, Haverhill, MA. Aroma is VERY strong piney, resinous over floral hops, light corn chip. Appearance is mild hazy golden yellow with trace sparkle, 1/2 finger-width white foamy head with trace leggy lacing. Taste is as aroma, strong flavor of piney/resinous bitter. Palate is medium bodied with thin texture and average carbonation, dry crisp finish. Overall, not surprising coming from this brewer, this leans heavily to the hoppy side. Would have liked to have seen more balance but it’s not a bitter hoppy bomb.
