22oz bottle in a shaker. Pours amber with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of citrusy and piney hops, plus a good amount of caramel malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. Just a good pale ale with a lot of hops.

Great beer. The head is thick and creamy the aroma is strong hop juice. The taste is citrus and very hoppy with a medium bitterness

It poured a deep amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was grassy, sweet, malty, some caramel, spice, pine and soap. The taste was similar to the aroma, very pleasant and awesome on the palate. It finished malty, grassy and a little bitter. Very good.

Bomber poured into snifter glass. Copper color with thin white head. Aroma is floral, citrusy, piney and bready malt. Taste hits with the fresh hop bitterness balanced with malt sweetness. More oily and resin then expected, coats the mouth. Light body overall and very drinkable. Nice bitter aftertaste. Good stuff.

This draft brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were and left behind a uncarbonated transparent copper brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy and caramel malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2013 On tap at PH, pours a hazy copper brown color with thick white head that was pretty lasting, lacing was average. Aromas are light...bready malt, wood, and some light pine. Taste is peanut brittle, malt, spicy pine, and a touch of lemon bitterness. Finishes with a lightly rusty character that I wasnít a huge fan of. Iím thinking this one wasnít as fresh as could be even though it was on tap or maybe a bad batch. The score seems real high. Tried the í13 batch, much much better. Moved rating up more than a full point. More grapefruit and juiciness

I was expecting more from this beer from mostly good to great ratings, but was disappointed. The fresh hops are very evident and pack an initial punch with lots of pine cone and floral scents in the aroma. The appearance is a dark cloudy copper color that pours with very little head that dissipates quickly with some lacing left behind. Itís a chewy beer with lots of resin and an almost oily mouth feel that coats your throat. Taste has lots of pine and cut grass with some other floral flavors that come through after the beer warms a bit. It certainly has a freshness factor to it, but that doesnít make it a great beer, only a good one. Drinkable but not one I would seek out again and again.

Very grassy/vegetal smell, same on the taste. Slight citrus but mostly just very green vegetable hop taste. Idk if this got old quickly or what, but this was just not a very good fresh hop.
