3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Canned. Amber, very slight haze. Decent head. Smells a little oxidized; the hops are there but not really punchy. Not really outstanding or memorable but a decent beer I wouldn’t mind having a few of. A little diacetyl as it warms up; not too bad at this level in the beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can shared by RussianDragon.
Copper body, slightly hazy with a thin off-white collar. Fruity malt, a bit buttery. Mild hop character with a light bitterness. The diacetyl aspect really detracts from the flavor. Mediocre.

12 oz can given me to a rep visiting the DC area. Many thanks! Pours a hazy orange with last offwhite foamy head. Aroma is... diacetyl hops and slight iron... hm. Upon further inspection, the print on the bottom of the can says "Best by 11/04/14". I’d love to try this fresh, but here goes. Flavor is light buttery diaceytl hops. A true review will have to wait.

12 oz bottle. (World Market) Chattanooga, TN.
Clear deep golden colour with a small white head.
Sweet fruity and piney hops, mild bitterness and sweet maltiness in the aroma.
The flavour is fruity sweetness, toffee, caramel malt and some mild bitterness. Very sweet. Low carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: Bottle. Medium amber color with a lasting white head. The nose is maltier than I was expecting. A little grain and citrus as well. There is a light sweetness from start to finish with just a little bitterness. Light cereal grains, citrus, toasted malt, maybe a touch of earth. I wouldn’t call it west coast, but it’s not bad.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours from 12oz. can a golden amber, with a large off white head. The aroma is of faint grapefruit citrus hops, grassy with some moderately sweet pale malt. Flavour is average at best, malt (bread, meal, cereal), heavy hops (floral, citrus, grassy),with notes of peach and pineapple. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation with a dry, but yet sticky finish.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Drank from the bottle. Aroma is citrus, malt, and light caramel. Taste is sweet on the tongue with the focus on the citrus and the tropical fruit flavors. The bitterness does not hit this beer like a normal pale but still finishes dry with almost no aftertaste. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

On draft at the brewery last June. Clear amber pour with a slight off white head. Tropical hop nose. Nice taste, solid honeydew hop and citrus bitter finish. Still a little sweet in the finish.
