2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A: The pour is a hazed golden orange color with a white head.
S: Some very floral hops. Fairly herbal too with a lot of citrus (orange) peel. Thereís a bit of grass and wheat, but a strong plastic aroma, unfortunately.
T: A harsh bitterness and plastic flavor that sort of ruins the whole beer. There is some good citrus and citrus peel flavor and the floral hop qualities are nice. Piney hops provide some more bitterness.
M: Medium in body with medium carbonation.
O: There are some decent flavors, but that plastic was just too much to look past.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Coleís. Pale golden topped by a creamy white head.the nose is loaded with awesome citrusy goodness. There are some yeast/hop floaties in the beer. Bright zesty lemon peel and a bit of light almost noble spice. Lean bodied with a bit of white pepper as well. Zippy and fresh. Itís big but theyíve done a great job of lightening the body and keeping the beer drinkable. Resiny toward the finish. Pretty damn tasty stuff. The bright citrus kind of falls back as it warms, but itís still pretty good.
