2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Mild aroma of hops, citrus, and some sweet breads. Deep orange in color with a nice tan head. Nice muted sweet malt taste up front...rich malty mouthfeel. Bitterness moves in quickly, mild at first then ramps up and lingers a long time on tongue. Bitterness on aftertaste lingers a bit too long for me. O.k.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very drinkable. The hop bitterness is there, but not overpowering, more like an APA than an IPA. I like the "session" level of alcohol if you are having more than 1 or 2.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly cloudy amber and copper coloured body with a nice, thinnish one centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of ridiculously strong grassy and citrusey hops with a light malt note, some faint apricot notes, but this is all about the hops - very strong dry hopping here for sure. Light-bodied; Very strong and earthy herbal hop kick with some perfumey notes, a hint of resin and a very nice and light finish that still lends everything to the tons of hops in the mix. Aftertaste is super bitter, but showing a ton of character - with drying notes, herbal flavours and that perfumey bite that goes a long way, all with no alcohol and no malt notes to speak of. Overall, a very nice beer for the style - a ton of hops in here that show well and a very light-drinking beer - perfect for summer when you still want to be drinking some hops! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Good Beer in New York, New York on 25-April-2014 for US$2,39 sampled at home in Washington a few days before returning to New York on 14-July-2014, but Iím glad I didnít have to go up to Wisconsin to get this one...but Iíd easily do it, knowing how good this beer was!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Grainy. Pine hops are very piney (probably Simcoe), but the hop profile is somewhat thin from prickly carbonation. Lingering pine. Nice beer in isolation, but in a spread with other Central Waters beers, it fades into the background. It might be missing some mid tones.
