Aroma - lots of hop notes but that’s about it on the nose - lots of citrus notes. Tastes - not very complex, lots of bitterness from the hops, citrus finish. Pretty long finish, well-carbonated. Good, but nothing super exciting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Pours cloudy and caramel-colored with a small, fizzy, off-white head. The aroma is a floral and fruity marriage of flora-based perfume and fuzzy stone fruit. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with middling carbonation. Flavor-wise, a solid caramel backbone provides the perfect platform upon which juicy, medium-bitter hops shine. Lengthy, mildly bitter, tongue-numbing finish. Bottle courtesy of ygtbsm94!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy golden and light copper coloured body with a thin, very fast-dying tan head. Aroma of grass, fresh hops, alcohol, grapefruit and hints of pine. Light to Medium-bodied; Very herbal and grassy hop note up front with a definitely high alpha acid count, but the complexity and depth falls short here. Aftertaste is well-balanced for the style with hints of malt and bitterness throughout, making this decent and perhaps even good, but not great - since seemingly no one realises how this beer is. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in [Old Town] Alexandria, Virginia for US$2,49 on 31-May-2014 sampled at home in Washington on 24-July-2014.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky tan-amber color with a small foamy orange-white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tangy and sweet honey and pine. The flavor was very sweet and tangy with notes of bread, honey and pine. Medium length sweet honey and pine finish. Moderately full bodied. Decent.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This pours slightly hazy rusty amber with an average sized off-white head.
Aroma that combines citrus hops, pine resin and sweet malts.
The flavor is dominated by a crisp hop bitterness that goes all the way to the finish. Good malt support that does not interfere with making this a tasty one.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle pours a mostly transparent dark orange, near brown, with some lacing, white head. Nose has heavy pine, a little rosemary, some orange juice that settled on the counter, mild malt, a little cardboard. Flavor is the same, malty, piney, orange, a little caramel, a little root veg, some wet paper. Full finish. Not my thing.

12 oz. Lightly hazy orange-copper with a lasting quarter inch of cream on top. Nose is orange toffee, resin and a touch of menthol and wood. Flavors of earthy caramel, toast, flowery resin, soapy wood and orange-lemon zest. Light body is pretty sessionable for 7.2 and has low-medium carbonation.
