22 oz. bottle shared by beerpig317. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor had some berry notes and floral character that was expected, but I got a big oniony and earthy character that I didnít like, some citrus, toasted bread, with moderate bitterness, not my favorite of the day.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle shared by beerpig317- thanks again, Bunker! Pours a somewhat cloudy yellow gold with a small white head that settles into a lasting film and ring. Dank, herbal, cat piss and weed kind of aroma. Notes of bitter grass, florals, lemon and grapefruit peel, pale malts, and a bit of soap. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, really bitter mouthfeel. Just a tad too bitter but otherwise a really nice dry IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle, shared by local raters. Golden orange color, hazed up by many fine particles in the body. Nice thin white head, leaving good dots and bits of lace. Nice biscuity bready malt. Interesting hop indeed -- berries, floral, some earthy flavors to it. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, sort of crisp lighter carbonation, with a mild dry finish. Moderate bitter taste, very light sweet. Tasty, interesting single-hop "strong pale ale".

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Berry (mullberry or gooseberry?) and herbs on the aroma. Hazy yellow color, white head. Light lime zest, herbal/spice/grass/citrus/juniper hops, malt stays completely out of the way; Medium light, good level of carbonation, airy mouthfeel, a bit watery. I wish they would state which experimental hop this was so I would know for my home brewing knowledge...

Bottle of beer. Iím kind of torn by this one. My first impression was the smell, which I really didnít care for. Strong dank smell. Kind of skunky, maybe comparable to ditch weed. However, I did enjoy the taste. Nice bitter dry flavor. Iím going to say this beer was OK.

Hoppy floral flavor to start with a strange bitter finish. Pours hazy orange in color with a thick head. Smells floral and hoppy. Had at half acre.

draft. really not a fan of this hop. at first it had a cool bright citrusy thing but then it got weird with it, had a basil and melon quality that was really off putting. couldnít finish this.

On tap at Half Acre. Pours slightly hazed golden amber with small white head. Aromas of grassy and earthy hops, bit of fruit, and some bready malt. Flavors of light fruit, some citrus, grassy hops, light bitterness, and bready malt base. Lacking bitterness and comes off a little bland, especially after having Vallejo right before this.
