3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Orange color with a white head. The nose is hoppy and fresh, lots of citrus pine notes and a light medicinal or lotiony malt note. The flavor is clean with more bitter hops and dry hops, but that lotiony thing isnít going away and it adds a twang at the end of the finish. Good, but doesnít build on you.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Crisp blonde coloured body with a soapy, large, dense tan head that leaves an ugly lace. Aroma of light hops, light sugars, light malt, a touch of flowers, some jasmine and a minor amount of yeast. Light-bodied; Assertive fresh hops up front that donít have any depth or body, a little sweetness behind and a very mild malty finish - very bland and unsupported. Aftertaste bland and clean with some floral notes, a tiny amount of hops and a little fresh fruit flavour. Overall, a pretty weak and mild beer - good for the size, but bad for the taste and quality of the beer. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased at BevMo in Walnut Creek, California on 19-March-2011 sampled at home in Washington on 22-March-2011.

Bottle. Dark amber with nice white head. Slightly dirty citrus and floral scent. Strong hops on a soft biscuit malt. Long grapefruit finish. Some woody notes throughout. For a session I might have gone lower ABV but it is a nice drinker.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Floral hops are strong in the nose. Slightly hazy golden-copper body is topped by a generous, fine bubbled, white head that lasts throughout and coats the glass with lace. Deliciously malty toasty flavour with a nice complement of floral and spicy hops and fairly pronounced bitterness in the backend. Medium body with wonderful fine bubbled effervescence. Enjoyed on tap at Portland Craft.
