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)

Thanks to Rosebud Butternuts for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is decent, but not as good as I expected. I get some grain and grassy hop notes but not too much else.
The flavor is a little bit better. I get some orange and grass notes from the hops, as well as some wheat, biscuit and grain notes from the malt. Low bitterness.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
Not a bad beer, but nothing too special. Thanks for sharing Eric.

(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.

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.
