Hazy light amber color with small head. The aroma is nice, some malt and spicy yeast. Smooth mouthfeel, rather dry, nice spicy character, the hop has a good resiny and citrusy character.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out notes of piney hops, biscuity malt and a little resin. Flavour is quite fresh, with notes of piney hops, biscuity malt and some resin again. Well-balanced, though very ordinary, with a dry piney and biscuity finish. Solid, but not exciting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. 7-11, Kittery, ME. Unfiltered golden with super huge level of carbonation. In fact it was poured slow and only half a bottle at a time. Sticky lace all down the sides of the glass. Aroma is biscuit malts, white bread, light floral and weak citrus under the floral hops.
Flavor is a carbon copy of the aroma. Bready malt backbone with the mild floral hop bitterness that vanishes fast after the sip. Body is on the lighter side of medium with just a nuance of straw grain. Clean and enjoyable APA. Super easy to drain the glass.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 12oz brown bottle, cool graphic design, into schooner glass. Hazy orange colour with weak white foam. Mellow American Wheat grainbill with emphasis on pungent hops: musky, tropical fruit, black currant, green grape, tomato plant, vegetal, blueberry, strawberry, melon. So this is what Summit & Chinook hops taste like together. Medium body and carbonation, mineral-water and tannins in the mouthfeel, the hop taste isn’t exactly smooth, but complex and nonetheless easy to drink, dry finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a cloudy yellow-golden color with a large, sudsy, dull white head. Pungent, mildly spicy, and earthy nose. A little chalky and crispy fizz on the palate. Flavors approximate the nose.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from RR. Pours cloudy yellow to orange with nice foam that lingers. Aroma is strange with rotting vegetal flavor, slight booze, Meyer lemons. Taste is similar with a mild citrus finish. I think I am not a fan of the chosen hops.
