j12601 (7859) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 17, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazed gold with a thin to medium sized white head. Soft musky grain on the nose with some dusty melon and hops. Medium bodied, light sweet grain, musk and melon, definitely has that Galaxy hop flavor coming through nicely. Slow sweet finish with some bitterness and a hint of tropical fruit and melon.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2015
Pale slightly hazy pour. The nose is really bright and floral. Some lemony citrus as well. Noble hops, grass and hay with just a perfectly balanced bitterness. Flinty dryness. Damn. Perfect after a long walk.

blipp (6957) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Clean malt profile, with pale and light bready notes, mild bitterness, and fruity melon-like hoppy notes. This is awesome. Obviously too much of a hop profile to be considered a true-to-style kolsch, but who cares. Balanced and immensely drinkable.

On tap at American Oddessey Relay finish party in DC waterfront. Clear golden with light head and not overly hoppy. Some juniper notes with a bright, clean finish.

vyvvy (4661) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 23, 2015
Sampled at Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition Fest 2015 - Pours clearish yellow with a white head. The aroma has pleasant fruity hops, pale malt, spice and stone fruit. It has a medium / light body and very crisp carbonation. The flavor start with the aroma traits along with crackers, pine and hop forward. The finish is pleasantly bitter. Much hoppier than normal, but very delicious.

seymour (1659) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - APR 13, 2015
Seriously? How is this beer getting such high ratings?! Tasted on tap in a mini Willybecher glass at the 2015 Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition Festival. It poured a hazy golden colour with weak white foam. I like the idea of a dry-hopped Kolsch in the abstract, but I guess for me Kolsch is all about that difficult and delicate balancing act between crisp graininess, peppery and perfumey noble hops, and ever-so-subtle top-fermented German ale yeast esters. Therefore, once you overwhelm everything with huge juicy-fruity Galaxy hops, the entire Cologne-style concept is obliterated. This was an okay hops-forward golden ale, light and citrusy, rough around the edges, not great.

Strykzone (5532) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2015
Sampled at Repeal. Hazed white gold. I love the fruity floral aroma. Beautiful hop aroma. The flavor is hop forward, too, and shows off the hops nicely. Honey suckle and soft maltiness. This is good. Two for two from these guys.

Draft. Pours green tinged yellow. White head. Nose/taste of green onion, pine, citrus and perfume. Medium body.

Ferris (7663) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2015
Draft - Bright Pomello and Mandarin citrus. Clear gold with a rich white head. Light citrus and grains with a clean finish. Most fun I have had with a Kolsch.
