3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.75l corked bottle. This is a cloudy golden yellow one and it has a impressive gigantic white almost fluffy head with great retention thatís leaving nice lacing down the sides of the glass. Nice slightly spicy and definitely saisonish aroma. Mmhhh.. Floral, crisp, a bit yeasty with cat piss, lots of grapefruit citrus and a little bit of tangerines. Nice! It has a lively carbonation level and a soft light oily mouthfeel. More spices and citrus in the taste. Grapefruit, a good bitterness balanced by sweet white sugar, grass, candy and something slightly metallic in the background. It ends on the dry side of the scale. Lovely in the heat. 25.07.2013

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale straw color with about two and a half fingers of a bone white head. Huge champagne like carbonation streaming from the glass.This has a lackluster nose, subtle aromas of lemongrass and green grape vine and I hate to say it, but a bit of adjunct lager esters. Taste is also subtle, I get a grassy note, granny smith apple and a touch of pepper. The palate is extremely dry, I was actually expecting and hoping for more fruitiness. Alcohol is well balanced, but I was excited for this one and ultimately underwhelmed. I prefer Local #1.

Draft at Champs Altoona. Pours golden with white head, fizzy and good lacing. Smells like bubblegum and thyme, cilantro and basil. Mild non-astringent bitter, bubblegum and Smarties, herbal notes of thyme and basil, orange and lemon at the end. Nice malt balance. Best IPA Iíve had in while.

Bottle shared at Cafe Sara, july 9th 2013. Hazy golden, whte head. Aroma is grassy, sweet caramel, fruit, and a very light hint of yeast. Taste is flowery, lemon, clove, marzipan. Nice and dry, thogh in my opinion this did not live up to its hype.

Pours a hazy pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma has nice floral hops...touches of grass and light citrus. Flavor follows suit...very floral...fresh grass and mild tropical fruit...refreshing. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a slightly grapefruity/tangerine and grass finish that lingers to bitter citrus rind. Great finish.
