4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Poured a clear bright golden color ale with a nice pure white foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of floral and citrus hops is quite amazing with light sweet cereal notes also detectable. Taste is a superb mix between some floral hops notes mix in with some notes of light cereal. Mix of citrus and floral hoppy notes is just about perfect. Body is about average with good carbonation. I really liked this beer and I guess the East coast breweries are not catching up on West coast brewery about adding hops into beer being more then just about bitterness.

Mild, easy drinking hoppy beer. A nice citrus taste. Fomay looking head, lacey.Could not finish the entire bottle with John, but I kept the rest for cooking. More aroma would help.

Bottle. Pineapple, citrus, floral hops aroma. Clear golden yellow with a large white head. Light malt, citrus, grapefruit peel, floral hops flavor. Light to medium body. Very nice fresh clean hops flavor, well balanced with malt. When I’m in the mood for a hoppy beer, this is what I’m after.

On draft at Nosh. Cloudy and yellow with a white head. Aroma is of citrus. Taste is dry and smooth with a nice bitterness at the end with citrus notes. The style is listed by Ratebeer as an American Pale Ale but seemed to me to be a wheat beer.

Nice looking bottle from a trade on BA. Very clean looking light orange pour, zesty head and carbonation leaving decent lacing. Nose is bright and dry all at once, with papery malts stitching together leafy and fruity aromas. Playful, moderately spicy mouthfeel. Solid as hell APA, with backbone and a hoppy elegance that is very dry and rustic.
