3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden color. Citrus and pine hop aroma. Very light on the palate. Surprisingly intense hop component considering the body. Pale malt flavor takes the back seat here, but still compliments the hops. The Bitterness lingers and makes you want more. The beer is a little confusing for me.

Best by 11DEC11
A: Pours a golden ale with a single finger head that goes down to a sheet of the same. Excellent clarity. Rings of lace.
S: Citrusy and pleasant. Really great nose here, distinctly orange and lemon. Nice.
T: Sharp hops and sweet malts. Great flavor is just as citrus laden as the nose.
M: Medium bodied with moderate carb. Semi dry finish.
O: Good beer. Easy to drink. Reminds me of fresh Bitter American. Very sessionable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was a 3 year old bottle, poured light golden. Nose slight sour, syrupy malt, and dank hop. Taste sweet malt and bitter bite, faint spiciness. Mild bitter finish. I realize it was past date, but not too bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 9-13-2009 (Bottle-Best Before: 12Feb2010) This beer forms a small fizzy white head with a short retention, transparent golden body, very little carbonation observed, and spotty amounts of lacing. The Aroma is wheat malt, bitter, citrus hops, and fruity. The Taste is bitter, some rye, fruity, and citrus hops. The Palate is tingly and semi-fizzy and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, there is a definite hop presence, but not overly so. This is a tasty beer from this brewery, worth trying, and a beer I would drink again.
