0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Yellow brew that has a slight haze. Aroma is bad! Smells of dirt and mold. Funky to say the least. Taste is like someone washed thier dishes with lemon fresh dawn and bottled it. There is just an odd bitter funk to this brew that is just not doing it for me. Not sure why or what happened with this but made my list of never again beers. Sadly I have 5 more of these to choke down and for what I paid for them I canít just pour them out.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Lightly hazy gold - soapy lace - nose has some very nice floral and herbal hop notes, but there are also some moderate creamed corn and DMS notes - creamy texture, fairly light body - kind of sweet, with some huskiness, diacetyl, more creamed corn - there are some pleasant hop notes, but the flaws make this very hard to enjoy - I feel like there is a good recipe hiding in here, they just need to work out the fermentation.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale golden pour with an off white head. Pine and grass hop aroma. Bitter grassy flavors with a sharp finish. Tasted more like a hopped up pilsner than a session ipa.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.
Appearance: pours a sudsy off white 2" head which recedes leaving mild lacing. Clear golden color with moderate streaming carbonation.
Aroma: lightly toasted barley malt, yeasty bread dough, definite citrus hop note.
Mouthfeel: light and fizzy with a drying finish.
Flavor: sweet barley malt, lemon, citrus rind and white bread crust.
Overall: a pleasant and easy drinking brew. Although a spring seasonal, I could see having this on a hot summer day. Quite refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 11, 2014 12 oz bottle. Aroma consists of latex, citrus powder drink, tropical fruit, dusty basement. Pours clear golden with a big fluffy white head with excellent retention; leaves some funky lacework. Taste starts out sweet before quickly turning bitter; a bit biscuity. Thin bodied and highly carbonated, which is what you want in a session beer--at least I do. Not bad, even with the weird aroma.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From bottle. Clear gold with a short white head. Hoppy nose is surprisingly Noble-like with a lemon and citrus core and floral, grassy, herbal touches. Unfortunately a rather unpleasant burnt malt husk and lactic milk powder / yeast character pushes through in little time. With notes of rotting pineapple and bubble gum turning to burnt Rice Crispies in a thin, acidic, buttery-diacetyl hoppy finish. Man... by the second pour (from a 12oz) it was getting a little rank in the nose. Armpit meat / bologna fat, white pepper, corn on the cob, vegetables / DMS, lemon zest, buttered popcorn, wow... Iím not convinced on the diacetyl just by the nose... the acidic solvent / pepper quality is why I suspect. Iíve had beers similar to this called Farmhouse Pale Ale or some such that had a similar sweat sock old yeast odor to go with your abundant citric hops.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not bad. It certainly has a little malty and hop aroma making its way to the top of the glass. The taste is very straight forward: light, slightly malty, a little hop note, with an underlying brand and mineral taste. Itís certainly a good spring and summer brew, but nothing over the top.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a lot of visible carbonation and a high, large-grained, white head. Nose is quite dry with lemony and biscuity notes; thereís not a lot to it, itís quite mild, though it did seem to open up a little as time went by. More lemon on the tongue, with a crisp cracker-like edge; thereís also a buttery note to it thatís not diacetyl. Itís almost like an excellent lemon-butter sauce, with a touch of hops herbalness. I want to dip lobster in it. Finish is long and rich. Itís different, but I like it.
