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.

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.

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 don’t 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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2011 Had again and while still good, this is really pretty dry, almost a bit too much.
First rating 4.5 Other than a fairly indistinct aroma this beer is awesome. Great hop flavor throughout with a nice dry hop finish. A good malt flavor as well but this is good enough that they should take it off of seasonal and make it a regular.

22oz Bottle... Poured a hazy amber with a big whit head. Hops and big malts on the nose. A mild bitterness from the hops with some citrus-like and was quickly balanced by the roasted/toasted malt and caramel notes. Very refreshing and a good session ale. Straight forward but well made.
