Bottle - pours hazy gold with a big white head. Lots of flowery, citrus hops, decent amount of stone fruit, almost a vanilla cream to it. Taste is overpowered by a sharp bitterness up front, dominates anything else that is in there. Mouthfeel is creamy.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brown in colour. Thick foamy head that pours way to large. When poured into a glass the head is almost as high as the liquid. Even out of the bottle the head spills over the neck. Strong floral hop flavour and aroma. Slight bitter aftertaste. Lots of citrus and pine

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Karl Strauss - Downtown San Diego. Pours clear, light gold, lightly effervescent with a modest, foamy white head. The nose holds floral hops, so,e dry citrus, dried pale malts. Light to medium sweet flavor with assertive, floral bitterness, dandelions, grass, some balancing pale malt sugars, grapefruit rind. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly resinous and warming on the finish with more bitter grass and flowers, some dry pine, sticky grapefruit. Not bad.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A cloudy golden, apricot-color with rocky white foam. Very sweet aroma - candy sugar, bubble gum. Creamy, chewy feel, tacky on the tongue, foaming, with medium heavy heft. Oaty, biscuit, maple. Very sweet. Pines, resins, citrus bitterness, some fusels. Finishes bittersweet. Could finish much dryer and with a significantly lighter malt bill.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Six pack from Dan Murphy.Very nice drop, not an explosion of hops in your mouth like some IPA's, and the 7% ABV doesn't show it's head until you are a few bottles in. Would definitely buy again. Recommended

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Amber/orange, off white head and good lacing. Pine and citrus aromas. Pine flavours dominate the front palate while a huge dose of sweet malt does balance it somewhat. Perhaps a touch big for me but not bad.
