12 oz. bottle via trade with garmonbozia - Pours a crystal clear amber color with a good size off white head. Light lacing. Has a perfume hop aroma with some toasted malt hiding in there. Flavor is floral hops and toasted malt. Hops linger on the palate a tad. Light to medium body. A nice PA. Thanks Kyle.

Bottle. Acquired in trade with fata2683, thanks Keith! Pours a crystal clear amber, with a thin. white, non-persistent head, spotty yet elegant lacing. Nose is spritzy and fresh, notes of both spicy citrus hops, and wheat. Flavors of nippy orange, creamy wheat, nice bitterness, very earthy... Good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hell of a gusher. Incredible. Half a pour produces a glass full of head. Looks good when settled, light clear amber with an all too powerful white bubbly head. Very carbonic aroma, sharp bite. Little honeycomb flavor, more sharp CO2 on the tongue, way too fizzy. But the beer itself, minus the fizz, is tasty with a floral dry hopped finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2012 Re-Rate 10/09/2012: Bottle, pours clear, deep gold with white head. Aroma of light caramel with pleasant notes of fruity esters and a light touch of citrusy hops. Flavor is very balanced between caramel, toast and citrusy hop with the fruity esters blended in nicely. Light-medium mouthfeel with medium-high carbonation. Overall, I very much enjoy this beer, such a nicely balanced, tasty brew.
Previous rating at 2.8: Bottle thanks to mora2000. Pours a hazy yellow with white fizzy head. Aroma of some pine, citrus, light fruit, light grain. Flavor has a bit of earth, pine, some fruit, grain with a light body with high carbonation. Overall, nothing to write home about.

bottle thanks to Garmonbozia, pours light amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is citrus upfront with a little caramel and pine. Flavor is rich sweet bready malts and some almond and pine nut with a strong hop presence in a finish that remains dry. Nice stuff.
