3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a hazy brass color with a small white head that has fair retention. The aroma is big and bold with oranges, mangoes and grapefruit. The taste, compared to the aroma, is a bit of a letdown. I get washed out grapefruit in the taste, backed by a light caramel malt base. The palate was a medium body with light carbonation. Finished shot. Overall: Nice nose but otherwise not really thrilled by this one.

Enjoyed at gabf 2014. It pours with a, wow, brilliant shiny clear gold body that supports a light tan head. The aroma is mild with a bit of sweet malts and spicy onion as well as something else going on in the background that seems a little berry like or juniper maybe. Interesting. The taste is smooth and hoppy offering up a pleasing mix of malts and spicy to grassy to a faint lemon grass hoppiness. Wow, smooth drinkable and plenty of deep hoppiness going on above the malt backbone to make me happy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at GABF 10/04/2014, thanks to my BIL for assistance with note-taking. Hazy bright yellow-gold color with a medium thin white head that evaporates quickly. Spotty lace. Citrus, hops and malt in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, grapefruit and biscuit malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Really nice aroma I mean really nice. Beer was cloudy I mean pretty cloudy. Taste was above average. Palate pretty darn good. I liked this brew

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Fruity citric hops, lighter dank piney notes, and moderate bitterness. Very light malty base. Pretty good.

Not sure of the date on this...seemed kinda sorta fresh. Ish. I love me some Citra hops (and apparantly others do to cause this incarnation of Blue House scores way better than the others on RB). Definitely a one trick pony, light all around, but features the twang and citrus kick of the Citra hops.

Draught > Toronado. Refreshing as hell. Super easy drinker. Not crazy hoppy just as a pale should be. Not super dry either which I appreciated. This would be a regular drinker if it were in Texas.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy copper orange, three-finger off-white head, thick film and very nice lace. Aromas of floral and citrus hops, lots of orange and grapefruit. with a hint of bready malt. Bright citrus hop flavor, almost tart, with a mild offsetting malt sweetness. Medium body, bright carbonation, exquisitely smooth and creamy mouthfeel, and a crisp and dry finish. Terrific.
