2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear pale yellow with a white head. Mild hops, some candy-like sugar sweetness, and a bit of bready malt. A light green apple note in the background. Tastes quite sweet and fruity. Some apple, a bit of citrus peel, and a lot of sugar. Mild floral hop character to it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Wow, I expected shite from this brew after reading the previous ratings, but i was pleasantly surprized. Creamy and crisp. Lightly sweet and bitter with hops. Bit of hay, but not bad. Enjoyable.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap at the brew pub in Fresno. Poured a cloudy piss yellow color with a thin white head. Aroma was a hint of hops, but there was something metallic and off lurking pretty near the surface. Flavor was almost salty and metallic. A little like iodine. If I’d been anywhere other than the pub this would have been a drain pour. Proof that a catchy name does not a good beer make.

Should I buy beer just because it’s incredibly cheap? Let’s crack one open and see. More yellowish than golden; head dissipates quickly. Slightly more flavor than the Anheuser clique or other mega-mass produced "brews," but nothing at all to write anyone about. Palate is moderately nice; a little bit of acknowledgment that the hops in its name aren’t just a marketing ploy. $14.95 for 12x22 oz bottles. Mmm... that’s going to be taken with to parties and events for a while. So watch out if you invite me.
