3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at The Common Table during the launch party.
The beer pours a reddish-brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is full of toffee and alcohol, with a hint of grassy hops. The flavor is more of the same. I get some nice toffee and caramel notes, as well as some butter, orange and grass. Overall, the fresh hops are not as prevalent as I hoped they would be. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

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.

Deep amber pour with a cream head. Nose is fresh hops, rich caramel, sticky, and dank. Very smooth on the palate, dough, caramel, gritty hops, and a nice finish.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Foggy amber with an off-white tint from all the hop resin. The.aroma is floral and resinous. The backbone is heavily malted. There’s a light syrup texture to the palate. The finish is decisively bitter. Its a little spicy and has a papery bite. Probably strong but you wouldn’t know it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
