3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Part of a second flight of five out of nineteen 4 days test. Thick yellow head over clear foxy-amber beer, well-carbonated. Creamy, exotic fruit nose; rather demure, finishes with hopped, but indifferent malts. Medium bitter, hops, but again, indifferent, bit metallic, finally falling a bit dead. Long-lasting bitterness. Medium bodied at best, bit slick, even creamy texture. Not really exciting. Not a hop, particulary suited for dry-hopping, IMO.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2011 Bottle @ bottlecraft. Not impressed with the nose here...almost smells lagery but otherwise non discript. Frothy head on orange beer. Flavors not impressive either...bitter grass with metallic notes and a clashing combination with the malt profile...bitterness lingers and the flavors suck.
