Bottle. Pours a clear deep gold with a thick near white head that dissipates slowly but remains through the beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a golden orange with a large linen white head that lasted through the first third of the glass and left partial lace. Very pleasant aroma that is filled with fruity orange and lemon along with a bit of malt. The flavor is malt up front followed by some dry citrus bitterness with some pine as well. Moderate bitterness at the finish. A solid beer, but at $7.99 a bottle, WAY overpriced for what it is.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle sample. Pours a hazy orange amber with a minimal off white head. The aroma had some bready malts and moderate hoppiness that included resin, citrus and a hint of pine. The flavor has a definite dry hopped character. Resin and citrus with a base of bready malts. This is a decent beer, but not worth the price of the small bottle.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle looks really good. Beer in the deep golden, really nice head. Hoppy-soapy aroma. Starts fine malty and spicy, more and more dry, a bit soapy. Also woody-try notes. Finish a bit metallically, could be more intense hoppy. But still good.
