3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Out of a bottle into a pint glass. Golden pour to light amber once in the glass. A nice half finger of head formed and held.
Wow, honeysuckle, lime and grapefruit in the background. An excellent fragrance.
Lots going on in this drink. Soft texture and honey at first, moving to lots of carbonation and a hop kick and ending with a touch of honey again. The first drink was surprising, but after a couple it is nice. It tends towards an IPA with the amount of hops coming through.
It is probably on the edge of its style but that only makes me like it a little more. A little confused with the abrupt changes from honey to hops and back again... but definitely worth a sixer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light orange with a frothy off white head. Bitter citrus aroma. Initial flavors of toasted malt quickly give way to a grassy hop finish with a lingering bitter aftertaste Dry texture with average carbonation. A little heavy for a ’refreshing’ Spring seasonal but not bad.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from a bottle into a lager glass. Great rich amber color with a pillowy head that maintained partway through. Mostly grassy hops and notes of citrus in the aroma. Tastes much like it smells. Tangy citrus aftertaste with a thin, oily mouthfeel. Decent overall but lacking depth.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber bottle. Pours a beautiful, rich gold with pillowy soft white head. Sweet malts and floral hops in the aroma. Flavor is malty with a slight bitter bite in the finish. Pretty light, crisp and refreshing. I would have more of these.
