3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Central Market, 10/22/13
Aroma: The nose is light, grassy hops, some spice, herbal notes, and a little fruit
Appearance: It pours a clear golden-orange color with a small head and some lightish lace
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet, some medium hop bitterness, and a little spice
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a lively carbonation, and a clean, somewhat dry finish
I thought this was a decent, though slightly lacking example of the style. The nose is a little dull, but the hops come through nicely in the flavor, and the freshness comes out there as well. Not too bad at all.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. This is one they can stop making it change. It doesn't come off anywhere near as what I would call fresh. Not aromatic. Clean and crisp but mildly bitter.

From a bottle purchased at Sam’s Quick Shop, Durham, NC. Pours light amber, with the thinnest of white head. Nice retention of lacing. Smell of hay and citrus. Effervescent mouth feel that slightly numbs the mouth and tongue. Hoppy flavor with lime on the back end. Nice beer,
