3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on draft at World of Beer in Naperville. Rating from notes. Pours a nice orangish color with a small white head. Bright aroma of hoppy goodness, lots of pine and citrus, some resin. Flavor is light, but hoppy, rich waves of delicious hop bitterness balanced by a mild malt sweetness. It’s clear the focus is on the hops here. Nice, light bodied with lots of carbonation. Finishes hoppy. Interesting beer.

At the Brewery in Petaluma during a Spring visit. Pours golden yellow clear. Delicious hops and fruit without all the abv. A sessionable lower alcohol offering that packs in 90% of the flavor.

On tap at APEX. Pours a clear copper color with a large white head. Very sweet fruity nose with big citrus. Clean, quaffable brew with a surprisingly bitter flavor, but very balanced and clean, mostly citrus hops and light toast. Very nice. Craig would love this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: A lean, clean and refreshing blond hoppy beer. Good.
How: Tap at Reservoir, Waterbury VT.
The look: Clear blonde body topped by a medium white head.
In long: Nose is quite hoppy, half-floral (dandelions) and half-fruity (pineapples and white grapefruits). The uber-clean body proposes low profile pale cereals, overall rather lean as far as body is concerned. The beer is generously hoppy but there is nothing incisive here, the hops feel fruity-juicy and clean. I got flavors of watermelons, dandelion petals, fresh pineapples, white grapefruits, bubble gum. Ends with a refreshing mild tartness and a bitterness intensity in the low-medium range. For some reason I was left with an overall ‘lager’ sensation about the whole thing (mouthfeel, smoothness, low in fruity esters), like one those new breed of American hoppy lagers. Not super-exciting, malts could have used more definition, but the beer is very refreshing even if a little ‘too clean’. I liked it. And now after many many years of drinking craft beer in pubs I’ve concluded that sitting at a bar with a notepad and writing notes about the beers I drink can appear really pathetic to some people, but not to all people, only to normal people.

On tap at Grumpy’s. Smell and taste of the hops is strong grass and resin. Lighter body in this session APA - a worthy competitor to All Day IPA.
