3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours cloudy pale brown, big fluffy head. Wafting notes of hoppiness over a distinct "beery" scent of malt and yeast. Smooth and refreshing in the mouth, but a bit thick and sticky for the "summer ale" their marketing seems to suggest. Lingerly bitter, so a lovely summer drink, but not a quaffer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 12oz. It’s a clear, dark golden to amber colored beer with a small, dense, light beige head. The aroma is sweetish hoppy, with lots of orange and clementine. Not sure if I think it’s nice. The same goes for the flavor, which has too much crystal malt taste. Medium body, sweetish, almost sticky. Overall, too sweet and not bitter enough. 130807

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bomber pours with a clear copper body supporting an off white head. The aroma has a mix of raspberry gummy bears, citrus hard candy and then lime flavored gummy bears. The taste has a mix of the same notes where there is a good deal of hop flavor and just a moderate degree of hop bitterness. Between the various malt sweetened fruity hop notes are thin ribbons of biscuit malts and slightly roasted malts. It gets a bit more resiny with hops into the finish. This seems a bit disjointed as the malts and various hops seem to struggle with one another.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a finger and half of head on a hazy, medium straw colored body.
The aroma had the mildest citrus and pine smells.
The taste had a watery-mild bitterness to it with a sweet note at the end. Meh.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It does not have anything really going for it. It’s not bad, but it has no real flavor or smell to it.
