3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strawberry aroma with hints of malt. Cloudy orange, thin head. Lightly sweet malt at first, generic tartness at midpalate. Perfumey fruit finish, cherries are discernible. Slightly tinny, but tolerable. Light on the wheat characteristics, but not a bad amber ale.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours amber with white head, aroma is a bit of citrus and some wheat fruitiness. Taste is some citrus leading into a caramel sweet and a finishing fruit that is sweet at the end. Just okay.

12 oz bottle into shaker. Aroma is caramel malt; kind of cloyingly sweet. Pours cloudy orange with spotty lacing and a medium head that disappears fairly quick. I taste cinnamon, faint banana. Sweet with hardly any bitterness. Thin body, medium carbonation. Fairly boring wheat ale.

From the bottle. Amber-golden color. Citrus aroma with hint of sweetness. Smooth and light, tasted slightly fruity with honey and wheat. Very little hop character though, they should probably change the name back to Sun Dog. Decent but not as advertised.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy amber color with slight fruitiness on the nose. Where are teh hops???? With a name like hop hound I expected some bold hoppiness. Not a bad beer but not what i was expecting either.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2010 Refrigerated bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours slightly hazy copper with small off-white head. Taste is bready roasted malt and light hops, and a hint of caramel. Nice lacing, but a little light on the carbonation. Pretty good overall, but nothing great.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
First rate of 2010. 12oz bottle. Pours a clear glowing orange copper with a larger foamy off-white frothy head. Aroma of caramel and toasted wheat, ample but subdued hop fruitiness accompanied by lots of sweetness making it smell like fruit snacks. Flavor of caramel, some richness accented by the alcohol, touch of hops, quite fruity, simple, actually better now that is has some age on it, go figure. Medium/light bodied, not sticky, slightly viscous, softer sizzling carbonation, a bit corse. Eh... I think I gave it a slightly better rating just because I’m very thirsty from all the New Years partying.
