On tap at the White Horse American Beer Festival, 4th July 2010. Bright golden amber with a white head. Citrus, grapefruit on the nose. Really fresh in the mouth, lots of lovely dry, citrus hop flavours. Perfect weight and a lengthy aftertaste. Incredibly drinkable. Great pump picture too! One of my beers of the festival.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent . The mild aroma was citrus and malty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of mild citrus floral and hops. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured copper yellow with a minimal white head that lingers in the clear, light body. Hops dominate the aroma by far, but some caramel, earth and rum-like sweetness is also present. Sweet aftertaste, with no real presence of alcohol. Thumbs up for the hops, but overall a bit too light, could be more aggressive.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear amber color with a medium head. Excellent head retention and some lacing. A damn nice looking beer. Unfortunately the aroma is not so good. Very weak and faint with only subtle leafy hops. The taste is a resinous hop bomb with plenty of pine notes. Very faint notes of caramel and bread in the finish. Medium carbonated bodied with a good hop Zing. Don’t know if i’ll get it again for $10 but not a "Bad" beer

Bottle . A pale golden color pour with a two finger foamy whiye head , medium carbonation . Aroma is of earthy spicy hops and little else . Flavor is kind of a mess , same grassy and spicy hops as the aroma with kind of a netral malt backbone medium body, oily mouthfeel , short hoppy finish , light bitterness. Drinkable but just odd .

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gold with a red tint and a lacy white head. Very little smell, little pine emerging as the chill passes. Dry piney hops with faint notes of mango. Astringent long-lasting bitter-orange finish. Very interesting but not so satisfying.

bottle - Pours clear light copper with a two finger white head. The aroma is of earthy and floral hops and malt. It has a light bready malt flavor with moderately strong hops and a lingering bitter finish. Pretty good. They’ve got a 400 lb monkey. I’m waiting for the 800 lb gorilla.
