3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Pours a clear blond color with light white head. The nose is lightly hoppy, very pnw and straight forward, like "hey there, I’m a hop, it’s nice to meet you". Moving along, it’s lighter than most of their hop series, but the timing is good. Easy drinking and not pretentious in their hop claims. Clean and toasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose is crackery and bready with a good deal of floral and citrus hop notes. Nice fresh and crisp hoppy aroma. Pours light golden with a soapy head that lasts. The flavor is more crackery and bready malts with floral and citrus hops, a bitey bitterness, very sharp and lingering fruity and floral bitterness. Solid lingering bite and some resin notes as well. High drinkability level.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle; golden orange with a skyscraper of a tight white-foamed head. Aroma is yeasty and citric. It drinks with a musty horse blanket essence, and with a dusting of herbal spice. Despite all that, the beer comes across as a bit shallow, light in body. The head won’t quit though. (#4157, 7/1/2011)

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(22oz bomber thanks to ericandersnavy) clear amber with a film of white bubbles. Nose of grapefruit, rye, and rhubarb. Taste of bitter citrus, umami, soft carbonation with an oily, bitter finish that’s not super enjoyable. Smelled better than it tasted.
