3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Cigar City. Pours a shiny yellow gold with a white head. Nose is some malt, light bitterness, tropical fruit, and light grass. Flavor is similar- light malt with tropical fruit and citrus from the hops. My least favorite of the SMaSH beers so far, but still really nice. Light in body and a thing of beauty at 6.4%.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
CCB tap. Pour was a hazy light yellow color, similar to grapefruit juice. Thin white head. Aroma was incredibly fresh grassy hops with a bit of pine and grapefruit. Grassy, fruity, and piney. Incredible from one hop variety. Taste is again, strong grassy and fruity hops. Some grapefruit/citrus with a nice mellow finish that made this one really sessionable. Slight caramel undertones. The fresh hop aroma and taste made this one really appealing to me. A great brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Cigar City. This unusual brew poured a bright yellow body, full of haze and with a light head. The hops were so aromatic that it reminded me of a Christmas tree. While the hops presented a bitter piny aroma, the flavors were quite fruity. Lots of grapefruit and light malts came down to a nice and sweet tangerine finish. Left the mouth clean and dry with a lingering bitterness.
