3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from the Sahara Mart in Bloomington, IN. Pours a crystal clear, golden colored body with some orange to it. Finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is grainy pale malts, some nice zesty grass, a few florals, a touch of caramel, and a lightly sweetened cereal maltiness. Flavor is sweet and malty up front before it gives way to a solid grassy, zesty lemon, floral hoppiness. Some sweet oranges in there as well as some honey and sweeter cereal malts. Finishes very dry with a solid mixture of citrus-grass and sweeter malts to give this a light-moderate bitterness and lengthy aftertaste. Light-medium, smooth body and soft, light carbonation. Overall, an above average imperial pils. Has a pretty solid malt backing and hop presence that makes this fairly tasty. Doesn’t quite seem to flow perfectly together, but nonetheless, not bad.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light golden. Nice white head. Light, summery, and floral aroma. Thick, malty, viney flavor. Green sinew or somethimg. Yeah that’s kinda freaky. Too heavy for the snow, that’s for sure, and thr finish sits heavy on the tongue.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap Hoppy Monk, EL Paso, TX-pours bright orange with a 1/4 inch soapy and highly carbonated head. nose is mostly sweet metallic notes and not what i was expecting-some light mushy malt and spicy yeast qualities show up but not like i would have wanted them. flavors of sweet pale malt light alcohol and very lite spicy hop presence. some floral aspects show up in the mid palate and alcohol present. Im not too impressed with this beer-too sweet and not dry enough.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Whole Foods Market, DC sixer ($16): For this price, I got to say that this beer was sadly not worth it. Pours a golden color with a quickly disappearing head. Aroma is of grassy and floral hops. Taste is a little sweet and the alcohol is very much noticeable, especially as it warms up. Not the most pleasant beer to drink and I have certainly had better iterations of this style.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a light gold color with a small, white head. The nose has a slight odd green hop note and a little pale malt. The flavor has a peppery bitterness, off metallic notes, some grain, green apple, green pepper, and alcohol. Medium bodied with low carbonation and an odd bitter and vegetal finish. This brew is a bit of mess.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden color with a medium head and some lace. The aroma is fruity and a bit sweet with some nice citrus and grassy hops. The flavor is very fruity and somewhat sweet with some grassy hop character. The beer is very bitter but something happens about mid palate where the flavor just falls off completely... sort of a fleeting flavor which is weird.
