2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Had this on the eve of the August 27th JO’s release. Received in a pint glass.
3.5 A: Golden wheat color. Came without much of a head.
3.0 S: Weak pine and citrus. Surprisingly, also a bit funky. Crisp and clean without much going on on the malt front.
2.5 T: Pretty weak in the flavor department. Basically no malt and just a light citrus and pine hop flavor.
2.5 M: Light body. Good moderate carbonation. Could be creamier. Smooth.
3.0 D: Not really impressed with this. Not much going on. Average on a good day.
Serving type: on-tap

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewpub on 8/26/11. Clear gold pour with a thin white head. Malty nose with grass, pine and citrus hop notes. Grassy hop flavor with citrusy hops and a bitter piney and grassy finish. Probably the best of the single hop series so far.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Drafte sample at JO’s. Poured clear golden color with a large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with great lacing. Moderate smooth earthy and citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bitter flavor with a smooth bitter finish of average duration. Solid drinkable brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the Jackie O’s Bottle Sale on 08/27/2011. This beer is a clear pale golden color with a medium thin white head that dissipates steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, grapefruit and slight malt. Light body with a moderately bitter hops presence that has floral and citrus qualities. The finish is hoppy with a citrusy aftertaste. Decent overall.
