From JW77. Man a really hoppy aroma and a nvery nice pale gold beer lead to a flavor that is quite unexpected. It smells like a hop bomb but instead is a nice smooth malty and bit funky beer. I really enjoyed it. Very cool

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft… Cloudy, straw-colored ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Great retention. Perfumey, spicy scents of pear, clove and rye. Light to medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Crisp, spicy, dry flavor. Perfectly balanced. The finish is spicy and bone-dry. Not really my thing, but very refreshing, drinkable and interesting.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Vermont Brewer’s Fest 2009. Very pale straw coloured brew. White head. The aroma is quite nice. Lots of light spice with a bright lemony nose and a lot of nice wheaty spiciness. Fairly dank resinous hoppiness as well that I attribute to the dryhopping, but I’m not sure if that’s the case. Lean and bright with a lot of nice lemony citrus and a good contribution from both the yeast and the hops. Pretty damn tasty really.
