3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Stone brewery. Obviously this isn’t the 2010 version, but the fresh hop character, the name, and the ABV are all the same. Medium golden with a thickly lacing head. sweet malt, lightly peachy, with pungent earthy vegetal hop character, surprisingly light mouthfeel, nice bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A - Served a hazy golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down fairly quickly leaving behind some lace.
S - Aroma is a mix of citrus hops and orange peel with some sweet caramel malts and a bit of biscuit.
T - Starts off with some sweet caramel malt with some orange and other citrus hops. Through the middle some bitterness comes through with some biscuit malt coming through. The finish is a mix of citrus hops, bitterness, and some sweet malt.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a nice dry finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nice fresh hop profile with a great hop and malt balance.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear golden with a fizz white head. Grassy skunky hop aroma and taste with a vanilla and (oddly enough) cinnamon bread finish.
