3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle from Hayduke. We shared a bottle via facebook chat. This pours hazy after being rolled. It is well carbonated. A one finger white head lasts nicely and leaves a layer of lacing. The aroma brings soft and sweet fruit with some citrus in the background. Light malts. The flavor has floral hops out front. It is fairly sweet but that is far from over powering. Some citrus notes that bring light a bit of grapefruit. I also taste something like honeysuckle. There just is not anything to dislike here and I find it to be a fun challenge to my rating skills. It has some cool subtleties that are a delight to rate. My rating is much higher than the average but this beer deserves it.

Very tasty. I took a growler of this. It was such a great nose of flowery nw hop aroma with a hint of grass. I thought I even got a lil grape, but no Nelson. Hmm, tasty light, crisp, refreshing sessionable even at 5.6 I would drink it all day. Make you want to come back 4 more, delicate balance of refreshing malt, light beer flow, with great hop mellowness, delicious

Out of a 12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy golden color. Not much of a head that disappeared quickly. The smell is a little stale. The taste is malty with just slight hops and like the smell is a little off.
