4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 ounce bottle directly from the source three days after its release. Poured into a Hoppin Frog 8 oz snifter. I’ve been wanting to try this one for a long time now, and I finally get the chance. Pours a murky copper color with a white head of foam that starts sort of fluffy, but moves to more of a ring around the edge of the glass quickly. The aroma has big grapefruit and orange rind with a gently malt profile hiding in the background. Makes me think of a hop tea. Big, juicy hop bomb. The taste is a sweeter hop bitterness. There’s a nice drying bitterness that kicks in about mid palate and finishes things off. Another delicious beer from one of my all time favorite breweries. This beer rocks!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2013 650 ml bottle. From bierkompass.de.
Hazy amber colour with a tiny white head.
The aroma is quite nice with hops, sweetness, malt and some bitterness.
The flavour is far from fresh. I’m not quite sure how aged this is but it’s not fresh anymore. Some hoppy bitterness and malty body.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2013 24th December 2011
Hazy amber beer with a decent off white head. Smooth and slightly soft palate. A little fine carbonation. Light hops, but as the label says - fresh. Pine and mild citrus. Creamy caramel malt underneath with a trace of lactose. Finishes fresh. Really nice light hops. 3.7
21st April 2012
Airy and crispy. A little malt cream. Lovely fresh hops - light but full of flavour. Mild grass and a little pine. Subtle tropical fruits. Juicy peach and a little mango. Finishes smooth and semi dry with minty pine. Ridiculously drinkable. The whole 750 vanished!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle from Kentucky. Clear amber with a tiny off white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus and floral hops. Flavor is malty, caramel and a medium to low hop bitterness, no alcohol taste. Medium body with soft carbonation. Very fresh tasting but seems to be lacking on the bitterness, nice malt balance though and really drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew and Meilby. Dark hazy red-hued orange, small white head. Aroma is fresh herbal grass, water melon, red berries and some sour straw-like tones. Taste is caramel, melon, hints of strawberries and grass. Full body, medium carbonation. OK, but very memorable.
