3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle purchased at Bellport Cold Beer & Soda. This is one of the prettiest beers Iíve seen in a while. Pours a totally cloudy apricot that has this beautiful warm glow when sunlight passes through the glass that seems to make the beer illuminate. Gorgeous. The head lasts until the very end and leaves a layer of foam with each sip all the way down. Very pleasant aroma that is filled with fresh citrusy hops along with some pine notes. The orange and lemon peel are more apparent in the flavor, along with some wheat grain. On the lighter side of medium bodied. Very nice beer.

Bottle thanks to big-D. A strange beer, quite different. Pours a bright orange color with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet zesty fresh hops. The flavor is dominated by sweet citrus and lemons, some light bitterness, very smooth despite a high ABV, a dry palate. Reminds me a bit of a grainy highly hopped pale ale. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at GABF. Pours an attractive gold with a fluffy white head. THe nose is phenomenal, big citrus and tropical fruits that burst from the glass. Plenty of big hop aromatics and then a big blast of white bread comes through. On tasting, has a really similar and big hoppiness but there is a hit of onion as well from the hops. Not too distracting, but itís there. Big malt backbone. Really tasty beer, for sure.
