3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Squealer from Iowa. Cloudy golden with white ring and lace. Beautiful citrus lemon aroma. Mild tropical fruit sweetness with lemongrass with very dry finish with a hint of citrus. Light and refreshing but I can’t imagine why they didn’t use a Belgian yeast to give it a little bready fruitiness. Very good but could have been better.

Pretty okay blonde. The citra doesn’t add what you’d expect. I didn’t get a ton of grapefruit. It has a dirtier citrus character. Tried at the Parkville microbrew fest in 2015.

Quart growler. Nice semi-opaque amber with an off white head that fades to pretty much nothing. Light citrus with some nutmeg and clove, wheat, biscuit malt, lemon rind, mild bitterness and body, moderate carbonation, easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at the RBSG 2014. It poured a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma was spicy, citrusy, some straw and lemon. The taste was a bit tangy, with lemon, herbs and a little spicy. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler @ the RBSG 2014 Meet and Greet: Hazy golden hue with a lovely head and good lace. I found this to have pretty heavy Citra character which is normally a turn off for me. Juicy lemon and orange rinds, lychee, resin, biscuit and a tad husky like there is some wheat in this. For the genre I found the sprite mouth feel acceptable. Not too shabby.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a cloudy blond beer. It has the floral, peach noe that I feel is typical for the hop. This has a nice thick texture but is somehow still a little watery in the flavor department. It has a light lemony character, medium brisk carbonation and is a nice, drinkable balance to it. This is unremarkable IPA but not bad.

Sampled at RBSG. A bitbof haze in this hokden beer. A white layer leaves a little lacing. Soft fitrus aroma and it is a bit stronger in the flavor. A thin feel. Soft pale malts. Nice and I love the low ABV.
