1/2 pint on tap @ One Pint Pub. Pours cloudy golden with a medium creamy head. Aroma is malts and fruits. Flavor is malts, fruits, alcohol and hops. Disappointing but still good.

Twelve ounce bottle at my niece’s house (thanks!) on October 4, 2015. Light amber hue, nice strong hoppy/pine nose, very good well balanced flavor. A fine beer from a fine brewery. Hope Heineken doesn’t mess things up.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a clear orange amber with a small white head. Lots of honey, marmalade, peach and grapefruit on the nose with some biscuit. Taste is a little sweet and boozy but with some good bitterness on the finish. Solid, but I think I prefer the regular version.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased from Gordon’s in Greeley, Colorado. Golden/amber in color, decent head. Very hop forward, malt is not to heavy but offers good balance mid palate, finish is very clean, sweet with notes of citrus. Among my favorites, in terms of hop forward Pale Ales; so much so I would be happy to see Lagunitas Little Sumpin’ replaced by Extra year round. So good.
