Bottle. Almost no aroma. For something with Hop in the name, there was a surprising lack of them. Much more sweet than I was expecting. Clean and light. Very easy to drink.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, confounded screw-top. Nose is grainy with a distinct raspberry overtone, though that might just be might long experience with razz-wheats; there’s wheat, rye, light citrus, malt. Pours hazy amber-red with some significant brown mitigation, head is soapy beige leaning to tan. Taste sweet but not cloying, light bitterness, lightly oily and boozy but also soft rather than fizzy; touch of spicy kick but not hot or aggressive. I really like the citrus and fruit here, simply nothing like the normal output from these hops, and there’s a great caramel-dough maltiness in the fullish body, balance all around. Flavorful and quite pleasant!

Nice bite....little lacking on the palate. I would try it again to be fair.

Bottle sample at Top of the Hops Biloxi. Hazy golden color. Aroma of spiced caramel. Taste is light toasted nuts. Interesting.

Bottle; poured a glowing orange amber color. Aroma of ripe fruit, rotty funk, and wort. Pretty sweet flavor; fruity with some mellow earthy spice. Better flavor than aroma

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy orange amber with a small foamy tan head. Aroma is faint but it’s there, a bit of dough and savory spice.
Flavor is a blend of light, spicy rye and toffee malt plus a weird diacetyl flavor that I can’t quite pin down. I don’t know if that was the hemp or what but it just didn’t click for me.

A beverage that arrives with minimal expectations because, really, what do you expect with so many ingredients? One quality this does not have is much of an aroma -- too many ingredients? But it looks darn fine and goes down with little trouble with a snappy little finish that gives a hint of the hop combo.

(12oz bottle) Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, and herbs. Flavor of orange, grass, toasted rye, earthiness, florals, and caramel.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sample at Buckeye Beer Engine on 5/4/14. Aroma of menthol and malt. Malty flavor with cherry character before a hoppy finish. Some very odd things going on with this beer.

Spruce hops, very hoppy. Having made rye bread before I can taste the rye and dareisay that adds a rye/bread-y element. Aroma ok, amber really just a basic amber taste...
