3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crystal clear golden coloured body with hardly a head at all - a touch of a white top, but not really a head. Aroma of water, light hops, citrus and pine - this one, you can tell, is very mild. Light-bodied; Nice fresh hop flavour with grass and herbs coupled with the tiniest malt flavour and a little caramel sweetness at the finish. Aftertaste shows a good hop flavour with not much else - not much malt (a good thing) and no real complexity - just a bunch of herbs and grassy flavours with the hops taking front and centre stage. Overall, a nice session beer with a good amount of hops that shows well - nice to sample! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Bottle Craft in San Diego, California yesterday on 06-June-2013 for US$2.10 sampled in my hotel room here in San Diego on 07-June-2013.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shaker pint draft at Churchill’s Pub in San Marcos, California. The pour is a mostly clear golden orange with a smallish off white head. The aroma is floral leafy, paired with a bright grain cracker malt. The taste is resin dank floral hops right away, balanced nicely with the fresh lively cracker malt. Fresh clean crisp taste. The palate is light bodied, but in no way thin or watery. Super drinkable, liked this one quite a bit.
