Tap at Horsebrass Pub - clear light copper - soapy head - taste of moderately snappy, crisp malts - moderate acidity - strong, floral hoppiness - moderately spicy - finish is a little bready, which I was not expecting, considering the dry approach.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft during Deschutes Fresh Hop Fest, Falling Rock, Denver. Slightly hazy gold, big rocky white head. Spicy hop aroma with some earthy dry malt tone. Taste was interesting indeed. Had some herbal spicy hop bitterness, with a subdued malt sweetness. A little on the funky bitter side with weak pale malt backing it up. Almost tasted Belgian. Not sure how to describe it.

Draft, 2010: Flavorful stuff. Had a rich “greenness” to it. Grassy. Quite flavorful. Citric bite in the finish, along with an orange peel aroma. Subtle caramel and cocoa sweetness. Snappy and aromatic. One of the better fresh hop ales I’ve had this season.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On Tap at the Falcon Tavern, downtown Boise. Slightly hazy light orange/amber with a full creamy light tan head that faded fairly quickly to a skin 1 microscopic bobble deep. Light malt aroma with some fruity hops. Citrus and melons. Slightly caramel malt flavor and a big hop flavor. Slightly metallic pithy bitterness. Not familiar with BG hops and the good thing about a single hop beer is that you can learn what that variety tastes like. I must say, I am still a fan of the "C"s.
This one is nice though.
