3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by alexsdad06 at Natifest. Thanks again, Brad! Pours a pale, clear bright gold with a small white head and plenty of bubbles throughout. Notes of grass, minerals, faint corn, straw, pale and dry grainy malts. Light-bodied, with a dry mouthfeel and medium carbonation. I saw bottles of this when I visited Pelican at the end of October 2012. It didn’t seem like this was old, though; did they brew this collaboration again? Either way, it’s not really my thing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle @ Natifest / Cincinnati OH --- Clear gold, heavy rim head, dots of lace. Taste is simple malt that adds strong citrus hops. Hops ease in, become strong, then fade again in the finish, allowing malt to return. Somewhat derivative, but still a solid IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
8/02/2014: CoHOPeration India-Style Rye Lager... Bringht and shiny golden yellow color with a thin white crown. Looks like a typical macro lager; ample carbonation. Sweet, candy maltiness with a rye spiciness, light dryness, and really mild hoppiness. It’s definitely a hoppy lager and would be enjoyable cold on a very hot day.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to taster (shared by alexsdad06). Looks good for the style; a transparent gold with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid too; nice and hoppy with notes of lager yeast and mild rye spice. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel that’s fuller for the style. Enjoyable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ml. bottle. It pours a very clear light gold color with a white head. The aroma is very hoppy with some florals, lemon/lime, white wine and some light doughy grains. The flavor is more earthy and spicy with some background lemon/lime citrus. Nice light, bready malt provides a smooth base. The mouthfeel is very soft as is the carbonation. It finishes with strong earthy, floral bitterness. Very nice stuff.
