3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Sam’s, Durham. Good one to score from the ongoing deep discount shelf sale. Kind of a cloudy apple juice looking poor, big bubbles, very crisp carbonation. Nose was an interesting combination of slightly faded malts and big citrus/sour apple. Prickly mouthfeel underscored the overall pertness of the beer, and the taste was - despite hints of old tea and stale biscuits - enjoyable and refreshing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle (Hiphiphooray). Poured a clouded, amber with orange and brown highlights and a slightly off-white head with decent lacing. Smell is very underplayed, with piney hops, citrus and some light malt. Taste follows aroma with a mild hoppiness, citrus orange, and mild sugar cookie sweet malt. Balanced and well rounded flavor. Medium carbonation, with a light dry finish.

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.
