Pours a clear golden orange from the bottle with dissipating white head. Aroma is nice piney hops with a good spicy rye back end. Taste follows, a hint more of bready malt. Nice balance, easy to drink, subtle carbonation.

On draft at Marin. Clear yellow with a white head and nice lacing. Aroma of floral, pine, citrus and just a faint toasty malt. Flavor is very bitter with minimal malt character and a light alcohol presence. Light body with active carbonation and a dry, bitter finish. This is really good, super light with a ton of hop character.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Hamilton’s: Appeared as a glowing vibrant golden orange with a thin layer of film head covering. Aroma is mild with only a whiff of oily hops. The flavor is dominated by piney hops that suggest a generous squeeze of citrus. Also has a sugary taste which reminded me of watered down limeade while bringing out a slight hint of spice in the background.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
OK, I knew nothing of this beer before trying it and was wondering if it was going to be a floral mess. Boy was I wrong. Gold medal last year!??! Wow. OK, poured up on tap at GABF 2012 with a pale gold body that exhibits a nice yet slight hop haze and supports an off white head of foam. The mild aroma is a little bit sweet and a little bit floral and really not much else beyond that. Smells good though. The flavor is nice, man this is pretty rich with firm floral hop bitterness, a bitter hop spiciness and then a touch of earthiness. Wow, terrific flavor and fully bitter hop forward from front to back but it offers up a touch of backbone to add wonderful depth and richness. Yes.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A hazed golden orange pour with a white head. Nose is rather heavy on the bread and rye. Some floral, spicy, and citrus peel hops. The rye really comes out as it warms. The flavor is fairly sweet with a ton of rye flavor. There’s a light hop bitterness, some floral hops, a light citrus note, and perhaps a hint of spice.
