Bottle from Ogglethorp. Thanks Brian. Cloudy sunset orange with a large, soapy white head. Subsided quickly. Nose is full with strong floral hops. Adequate balance between hops, malt, and water. A smooth pale.

I don’t know if I have ever had a beer that poured with more foam from the bottle (without being shaken). After a routine, this was about 90% faom in the glass. Finally settled down to leave a nice foamy head with bits of yeast residue, and eventually, okay lacing. Aroma was a mixture of grassy hops and a hint of citrus. Flavor was more of the same, but not quite as pronounced. Had a tingly mouthfeel, but a less bitter than expected aftertaste.
Not a bad drinking beer, and I would have rated a little higher had it not been for the pain of pouring and waiting for the foam to subside.

Thanks to decaturstevo for sharing this bottle with us at the Nashville Tasting! Poured a slightly hazed golden with a white head. The aroma was subdued but some hops present. The flavor found citrus, wheat, and a light malt background. Light body with a mild bitterness throughout.

12oz bottle (thanks to ogglethorp) poured a clear yellow/gold color with a nice white head. Aroma was sweet caramel and resinus citrus hops. The taste was sweet with a fair amount of bitterness and a decent hop finish. Overall a good pale, just a tad too sweet for my taste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a lightly hazy pale golden amber with a medium foamy/lacing off white head. Tons of hop residue form the pellets they use. This is the most hops I have noticed ina commercial beer every. Boy did they drop hop it and not filter it thats for sure. Aroma of floral and lightly citrus hops. Various fruits and a very little bit of caramel malt hiding in the back. Flavor of hops (mostly lemon and flowers), slight bitterness, some malt balance with hints of graininess. Kind of thin and watery though.

Nice hoppy aroma. Slightly hazy orange brown pour with a small head ans a bit of lacing. Hops are the biggest flavor with a slight malt undertone and a hop aftertaste. Not too bitter, a good balance.
