murky orange caramel color. short lasting head. nice, light, american hops aroma. starts sweet but getting much bitter very fast, but not too bitter, with a surprising little sourness. a bitter sweet aftertaste. aggressively carbonated, light body.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, thnx to Tomer. Pours a slightly hazed golden beer with a very thin, fizzy white head on top. Aroma of piney, citrussy hops with a faint touch of the honey they put into this brew. Flavor is malty sweet with a bitter backbone. Well balanced, not so complex and very easy to drink. Nothing too remarkable about this beer, wish there was more of the honey present. There is some honey in far aftertaste, could have been more. Decent brew though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Obtained in a trade with tlahav. Split with several people. 33 cl. bottle sampled bottle @ hotel. First day @ Borefts 2013. Hazy golden with a white head. Nose is actually pretty hoppy, yep USA hops, oily, some resin, floral, citrus,… Taste is bitter hay, oily resin hops, citrus, touch zest, some light caramel mats & yeast, slightly floral bitter. Bit oily, not too heavy, pretty enjoyable. Pretty nice brew from Israel.
