3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Refrigerated 12 oz. aluminum can drink before september 5, 2014 date, from blutt59, poured into a snifter. Aroma is big citrus, medium body, medium carbonation, and little big bubble lacing. Taste is tropical fruit, grapefruit, some herbal hop backing. Back to back with sculpin, not necessarily worse than sculpin, just different. Not sure if its a golden ale, but it is an awesome IPA. Nice surprise blutt59!

Can pour medium gold. Nose some fruit hop, sweet, and crystal malt. Taste light crisp up front, Mild bitter, more sweet Mid palate. Minial finish. Lighter all around. Don’t get much from the dynamic hop, except a little on the nose.

12oz can via trade with HeffIAm, thanks Jeff. Poured a nice looking medium density bronze body under a smaller to average dense foamy white head. Aroma is juicy citrus, honey sweetness, caramel malts, dough, orange and tangerine, lime, hop resin. Average body, dry finish, average carbonation. Flavor is the same as the aroma with a touch more grain and toast. Great beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Citrus hop aroma. Straw and grainy flavors followed by sweet flavors. Interesting but enjoyable. OVer 7% for a blonde ale is unique.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Date on the 12 oz. can. It pours a golden-tangerine, and has extra fine particulates suspended in it. It makes a very dense, rocky, creamy top on it, probably 2 fingers deep of mousse. For all the different hops used, its aroma is a bit subdued. Its not as aromatic as some IPAs, but would pass for one easily with other brewers, it sure is luscious smelling. Fruity, piney, and very tempting. It is a nicely balanced tasting ale. The hops are noticeable, but don’t bite your tongue. The brew has a bitter finish, but it goes down clean and not sticky. The hops do come through overall, and are such an unexpected surprise. When I saw this at the store I did a double take, then my eyes opened and my curiosity fired up. I am so pleased I grabbed a 6 pack of these cans! It is by far and away a top-level ale, and I hope more people discover this example of what a great ale can be!. Real Ale has really been coming out with some top quality brews lately, keep it up!

Pours a nice clear golden color with white head. Hops on the nose, floral, pine, and some citrus; follows onto the palate. It is really hoppy for a golden ale, but good.
