3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
35,5 cl bottle @ hotel room, Las Vegas
Aroma is quite light with hay and some fruits. Flavour is tart, dry and hoppy with some apricot and orange. Some alcohol(!) in the finish. Unique and interesting.

230712. Bottle at hotel in Las Vegas. Pours hazy light yellow with a small head. Smells like sour milk with some hops. Taste hops and some sour side taste. Weird stuff.

Bottle. Pours golden orange with a thin white head. Aroma of pale malts, citrus, grass, light fruit and had some floral notes. Flavor was citrusy & grassy hops, grain, pine and subtle caramel with a slightly dry finish.

Pours blond hazy with a finger head and sediment. Sell sweet honey and straw. Taste a bit hoppy but a lot of sweet straw. Decent and refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
poured from tap into a taster. Pours a nice clear straw color with a small head.
Good aromas of grains, crackers, citrus and a touch of hops. Lacking some depth though.
lighter bodied with good flavors of grains, lemon peels and some bits of hops on the end. A little thinner than I’d personally like for an APA.
A solid Pale ale, but not up to the other quality that I was having from HotD. A nice beer, but not much more.

purchased in nyc. golden brown color with mild opacity. minimal head. pretty stinky aroma with trace floral hops. almost a belgo-pale ale. flavor makes it seem not totally fresh, though i guess pilsener hops could explain that as well as part of the aroma. it’s super light in body and totally drinkable. not much fruity/floral hops. mild bitterness and rather sweet. quite interesting overall, though not sure what i’d call it.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
6/12/12- Pours a cloudy sediment filled straw yellow with a 4 finger white rocky head- this was a gusher. Musty, herbal, earthy, and slightly skunky hops dominate the aromatics, with a touch of rustic bread in there. Light with strong carbonation. Once again the hops are in the spotlight, but the skunky and musty notes are more prevalent with bread and citrus on the slightly bitter finish. Things linger for a bit and it almost gets chewy. Heard a lot of good things about HOTD, but this doesn't bode well. I hope this was a bad one, because it's a poor and messy effort.

On draft at brewpub. Much better then the bottle I had a while back. Very lemony with hops and light malts. Really tasty and drinkable for such a low ABV.

Very light, yellowish color. A great hoppy kick in the beginning that sticks with you. Very enjoyable and refreshing!
