3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Trade with dra19. Pours a soft amber with a huge thick white head. Very profuse head, doesn’t make any sense. The aroma is light sweet citrus, lemongrass, very light aroma. The flavor is a bit dry, mandarin orange peel, highly carbonated, Cascades aparent. Light macro taste, very light but distinguishable. Dry finish and a fairly lasting waxy finish.

Trade with dra19. The color was light orange with a lot of carbonation. The head was thick, foamy, frothy, and off-white. The aroma was citrisy and hoppy. The flavor was cascade hops, a waxyness, light citris and floral. The palate was average. The finish was clean.

3 of these bottles I bought were all fizz. Horrid buttery/diactly taste on those. The other 3 were ok. Not bad, but not great. I’ll have to get ahold of a fresh sixer...

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thick, murky sppearance - lots of sediment. Very foamy head (similar to the consistency of whipped cream) at first. Orange amber color. Smell is very grassy. Decent taste - fairly muted though. Just okay overall for me. I expected more.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice foggy gold with a minimal creme head. Nose is mild with a slight citrus tone. Not much to it really. Flavor is bitter hops with a leafy, earthy edge. Feel is a bit thicker on the liquid and the carbonation is decent. Overall a fairly good one here. A bit bitter and lacking a smooth even profile, but nice enough to try.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours very hazy burnt orange with a thick slightly off white head. Aromas of lemon and flowers. Nice change of pace hop aroma. Taste is citrus, more lemons, with some earthy malt. Not real bitter, just enough. A little thin, but not bad, overall, I really enjoyed this and will drink often.

Bottle: clear amber color, lasting white head, floral hoppy aroma, taste is mostly hoppy with a bit of a malt presence, slight bitter finish, not a bad APA but nothing I’ll buy again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A little on the hoppy side. Feels out of balance. The hop presence is nice, but could use a little biscuity-malt flavor to even it out. Just ok.
