Sampled on draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange color with a medium sized frothy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of butter notes and leafy hops. The taste is earthy hops, butter, caramel and a bitter finish. Medium bodied. Too much butter... hopefully this is a bad batch.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 14, 2012 Golden-orange appearance, light to decent head. Nice hops aroma, but more watery tasting than I prefer. Nice crisp texture, though. Short aftertaste.
Re-rate on 4/10/2012: On tap. Mildly hazy yellow-orange color. Good, thin white head, leaving good lace. Great light bitter taste. Awesome satisfying hops here. Nice crisp carbonation, dry texture. Definitely an excellent batch of OPA (it can vary). Palate score adjusted from 3 to 4. Overall score adjusted from 13 to 14.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This poured a medium to dark orange color with an off white head. Aroma was of light grassy hops and pale/caramel malt. Flavor was biscuts, bittering/grassy/ light citrus hops, and lightly toasted pale malt. Very bland and uninviting.
