SpringsLicker (3466) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 8, 2016
Hazy gold with a tall white head. Light floral, perfume hop aroma. Some lemon zest. The flavor has some wheat earthiness that is delivered with a dry bitterness. I don’t care for American Whet Ales, this one didn’t change my mind.

One2remeber (245) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2015
Canned 04/08. Attractive silky white head. Vibrant orange, yellow hue. Hazy is an understatement. Creamy, heavy hop oil (like a NZ galaxy), grainy husk texture gives a zesty flavor. Clean yeast. Tons of flavor relative to average AWA. Great 6-pack for golfing.
