Purchased from the variety 8/pack. Both cans were huge gusbers. So need to subtract some points for appearance. Hazy amber pour with a big head initially. Some fruity scents, tangerine, mango. Slight off flavor of band-aid, but not undrinkable by any means. Interesting beer. Not great, but not bad either. Iím most likely not going to seek this out in the future.

16 Fl. Oz. Can. Poured hazy, golden, medium off white head and lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma has some citrus fruit, some hops and some malts. Taste is slightly bitter and hoppy but well balanced with malts. Very decent, easy to drink, not bad.

Sampled at Northgate Andover beer tasting. This brewery can be hit-or-miss between batches, as evidenced by their wide swing in ratings... but this one was good.

CaN, 16 ounces, thanks chimney tim .. . gold amber .. mild foam .. pine, green, and the C hop collection, but mild .. mouth was light, as was the finish .. standard pale . . .. By the fourth or fifth it became apparent what their issue was: there was a giant stem of broccoli in each of their baskets.

Can thanks to Paul. Pours a clear gold with medium frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is earth and grain. Medium mouth, earth, grain, honey, very sweet, decent.

Beers in cans are convenient for summer picnics. Unfortunately this isnít the best such beer. Big hoppy front with obvious West Coast hopping. But then I realized that some off flavors come out that challenge the drinker, rather more grassy and English. Malt balance perhaps? Still, it isnít to my liking, though I was impressed by the freshness of the hops. Can.

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Pour out of 16 oz can, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of slight orange, yeast, touch of grain into a bit of earth, slight booze, touch of veggie. Taste is a mix of grass, grain, biscuit, touch of orange into a bit of yeast, slight grainy notes into some booze, dms, finishing slightly bitter. Not good.

backdaft (286) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Can. Explodes with a sediment filled copper color. Off white head and some decent lacing follow. Ií ll agree with the last reviewer and say that nothing here is right. Sour, earthy, caramel. Well past its prime? Or just plain nasty? IDK

drowland (7804) - Georgia, USA - JAN 28, 2015
1/28/15. 16oz can from Happyís in Cedar Falls. Hazy orange pour with a big khaki head, good lacing. Looks fine... that seems to be where the positives end. Sour milk aroma, citrus, earthy, floral, caramel. Weird flavor of mixed up grossness... sour milk, green apple, caramel, floral, seltzer water, blech. After these 4 cans I will try to remember to pass on this brewery here on out.

On tap at Yardhouse SLP. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a combination of light fruits, sweet grains and grass with a hint of resin underlying. Flavor has a bit of biscuit and bread upfront with light fruit and grass underlying.
