2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a pale yellow with a large-grained, cumulus, white head with lace. Nose is grapefruit and aged cheese with some diesel fuel and catbox notes. Some sweetness on the tongue, but then the astringent, almost acetic grapefruit kicks back in, followed by the diesel element again; thin on the palate, with a long, petrolated finish. Much like the mentality of most íMericans (as opposed to Americans), it seems fundamentally lacking somehow.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours super cloudy hay. Thick white head at first that falls to a persistent white halo. Aroma is full of lemongrass and green peppers with a nice hint of chopped onion and grass. Taste is assertively bitter, white bread, spicy yeast., grass, citrus fruits. Pretty right up in your face, like íMerica. Deal with it.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer appears extremely hazy and pure yellow with an inch of soapy white head. The aroma is simply fabulous. Dank hops and farmhouse funk. So fresh. Wow. Great flavor as well. Beautiful blend of Nelson hops and saison character. A healthy amount of bitterness in the back, finishing dry. The aroma is slightly superior to the flavor, but the beer is firing on all cylinders. Superb.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a very hazy yellow with a big fluffy white head that leaves itís share of lacing on the glass.
The aroma is just permeating with the Nelson Sauvin hops, dank, fruity, melony, stinky Nelson Sauvin. Some light fruity ester, some light minerality, but mostly stinky hops.
The flavor is pretty in line with what Iíve come to expect (& very much like) from this brewery, itís a yeast thing... and thus far they seem to have it under control. The beer is dry and a with touches of banana and tartness, a good minerally character... this one is decidedly hoppier than any of the others though, or at least a lot more hop forward in itís approach. Again, like the aroma much of the character of the beer is derived from the pungent character of the Nelson Sauvin hops, while maintaining a pleasant & moderate bitterness the fruit, bright grapiness, and melon flavors from the hops really shine here. Things are pretty well balanced all around here, and the beer is really very drinkable considering itís higher than I usually dig for the style "boost" level.
