3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear light amber and copper coloured body with a ridiculously large, seven centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of pure resinous and floral hops with some light citrus, a touch of sugar and some pine as well - nice and fragrant. Light-bodied; Sharp pungent hop flavour at first that dies relatively quickly and shows some resin, white grapes, pine and mostly floral elements and almost no malt at all. Aftertaste shows some grain, pine, earth, pineapple and kick of grass at the tail end. Overall, a pretty mellow beer that shows a lot of nice aromas, but develops nothing in the flavour at all near the end - interesting to try, but not really worth trying, unless you like fresh hopped APA style beers with no depth nor complexity. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Spec’s Liqour in Dallas, Texas on 11-November-2015 for US$2,62 sampled at home in Washington on 23-November-2015.

Can. Big pillow off antique white head. Has a slight haze. Is golden in color. The smell is fruit, resin, pine, slight styrofoam, orange, decent but not spectacular. The taste is similar to the smell with a medium bitterness and more pine notes. I expected more and better.

A can with Erica and Patty after the 8 mile hike in Lake Houston Wilderness park. Real nice piney and citrus fresh hop aroma. Flavor almost as good, but weaker. Some malt in there. Refreshing!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours hazy orange with a medium white head. Smells like citrus juice and tropical fruits. Taste is fruity, juicy, citrus, and bitter. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and average mouth-carbonation, Deep Ellum Hop Seeker finishes with a lingering fruitiness.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Had this on tap; reviewed from notes: pours a golden color with off-white head. Floral notes, skunked grass, and old wood notes on the nose; not much on the palate. Not a very well done beer. Seems like they rushed it out.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at World of Beer. Dark pour with an off-white head. Aroma is sappy flowers. Taste is sweet biscuits, grainy, almost chocolate, and definitely bitter.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy deep amber with thick beige head. Arena is very malty with a balanced amount of choppy/grapefruit citrus. Flavor is much the same with a sweet malty backbone. Medium-heavy mouth feel with medium carbonation. Overall, I dig it!

Draft flight at FS FW. Ruby-bronze pour with a thin brown head. Light, sweet, citrus hop aroma. Fairly light flavor with sweet hops and only light bitterness. Name was appropriate: left me looking for the hops. Not bad, just light flavors.
