3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar ($1.79). Pours a golden amber with one finger of off-white foam. Aroma is a bit weak but consists of some citrusy, grassy, and earthy/dank hops. Flavor also of citrusy hops well balanced with some nice honey sweet maltiness. As promised, this delivers a hop-forward flavor without much bitterness. Nice smooth finish. This is highly drinkable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smells strongly of balanced hops. It is very hop smelling, but not too strong, you canít quite tell what kind of hops as it is very nicely citrusy in the beginning but doesnít have the bitterness at the end of the smell. Pours a very hazy orangy amber, nice fine head on pour, great lacing. You get a nice even malt feel in your mouth as the hops flavour builds. There really isnít any hop bittering in this at all, it is a bit peculiar. Very nicely balanced though, very smooth even taste at the end of the palate. The hops fade out very cleanly.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy bronze-amber with a large, foamy, clingy, beige head that fades a little. Taste is of caramel, hops, malt, pine and citrus. Similar aroma. The body is a little thin and slightly watery. Easy to drink and rather enjoyable, but not great.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bomber purchased at liquid solutions
Appearance: Fairly transparent body that is just a touch too orange to call full blown red. Lush 2 finger crown comprised of fine bubbles. Some retention and lacing.
Smell: Very nice subtle yet complex nose. Lots of herbal, minty, floral, and citrus hops creating a nice bouquet.
Taste: A bit less complex than the nose. Orange tangerine note that gives way to wet hopped goodness.
Mouthfeel: A bit thin for my liking and for the style.
Drinkability: Its thin, has a 6.40% abv, and doesnít taste bitter so it gets high marks.
