Sample @ GABF 13. Pours a clear golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is floral, soapy and light fresh citrus. Flavour is mildly bitter and buttery. Oily texture. Not really impressed.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I bought this because it said "dry hopped session ale" - amber pour - frothy, lasting lace - nose of fruit cocktail sweetness (syrup, cherries), lightly citric and wood hops - flavor of mild harsh maltiness, fruit cocktail/fruit punch, peppery hops, citrus - finish is peppery and mildly abrasive - the carbonation is soft and creates a nice texture, but other than that, this is pretty rough and tough to "session."

Bottle to pint. Looks solid for the style; a transparent amberish dark orange with off-white lacing and lively carbonation. Smells of robust citrus hops and malt. Tastes like it smells, but significantly less hoppy. Average on the palate. Decent beer, but it smells better than it tastes.

12-ounce brown bottle from the Clifton Park brewery. Pours a dark gold color with a white head. Even dry malt and mellow hoppy flavor balance. Nice "long" hoppy flavor. Overal, very nice.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Mild piney nose, with some citrus in the mix. Medium copper/orange color and a hefty two-finger rocky head. Light but slightly rough caramel / juicy substantial hopping in mid / sandpapery hops and theb it smooths out over a candyish final. Medium body (mainly from hop texture). Good, heavily hopped session stuff
