2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
3-4 ounce sample from a bottle at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Listed as Hip Hip Hooray. The aroma on this is soapy with some light oxidation. Light piney flavors and some sweaty sock notes are also present. Not too much else. Disappointing. Mildly hazy unfiltered orange body with a small off-yellow head present. Mild lacing. Starts with some mildly herbal hops and some scant oxidized cardboard flavors. Finishes a little sweet and with very subdued hop flavors, which are a little grassy and herbal. Pretty boring.
