Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Aroma is of slight citrus and mostly grass. Taste is light bitterness with a little something sweet but different in the back. Although I am drinking this at 3 months old it has held up nicely.

scampycampy (27) - Wesley Chapel, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Pours golden orange with light/average carbonation and head. smell is not good. a foul, dank, fruity scent. However, the lively flavor of light hops and citrus comes through nicely with a light hop finish.

yrstruly (329) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2014
Pours hazy gold with a huge, pillowy white head. Aroma is dank and grassy with slight citrus notes. Taste is fairly dry, clean malt character, with a spicy-clean hop finish - almost like a Pils in this aspect. Nice!

Cans from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. Poured into a snifter at home. Solid golden amber pour with an orange hue. Thick pillow of white head. Aroma more musty and basement then other Dry Hopped. Must, basement, slight wet dog, fresh cut grass and pasture, wheat, and grains. Taste was fairly the same as the aroma with the mustiness and dankness showing. (Not sure if the ahtanum is one of my favorites.) Medium light body, medium carbonation. Slight bitter and basement finish. Probably my least favorite fo the series thus far.

12 oz. can thanks to Phatdog1, Thanks. Orange gold color with thin head. Aroma is Earthy and dirty hops, musty and grassy.

The taste shows light resin, hints of spruce combined with bread and Earthy malts. The bitterness lingers for a good duration after the sip. Lightly dry with lingering pine bitterness. Herbal notes. I like it but did a side-by-side with the citra. What to take a guess who won?

blklab2007 (1878) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Canned December 20 2013. Pour has a golden color with a coating of white head that hung on pretty well. Aroma has citrus, herbal dankness, and mild tropics. Mouth feel is medium light and the carbonation medium low. Flavor has dry citrus, low side bitterness, sweet underlying malt, and a light hint of tropics. Very solid but the dry hopped side had fallen off in around 8 weeks time.

12oz can, courtesy of markwise, pours with a clear copper body that has gold hues and supports a nice looking dirty white head of foam. The aroma offers up earthy lime like citrus hops as well as a modest level of an earthy tea note. This has a yummy taste with earthy hop notes, a dash of lime and then a pleasing degree of earthy black tea. This is nice and crisp and snappy with rich hoppiness to go along with a supportive thin sweet malty base.
