"Cool and unique - never had a dry hopped mead before. Abv hidden, hippiness a really nice twist, especially in the nose. Light honey and a citrusy bitterness throughout. "

phaleslu (6806) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Guest tap at Perennial, served in a wine glass. Pours the color of white wine - clear, with no head. Notes of honey, florals, tea, lemon, and wet paint. Light-bodied, with low carbonation and a vinous mouthfeel. Not much to say about this one. Very basic mead.

Draft. Pours yellow with white head. Nose/taste of hops, citrus, sugar and light apple. Lighter medium body.

deyholla (6954) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 21, 2014
On tap at the 2014 OCBF. Pours a clear pale gold with no head whatsoever. Aroma has lots of honey that is slightly dry, a bit of sweetness and a touch of backing pine. Flavor has a combination of sweet and dry honey with a hint pine backing.

The mead to win over pale ale lovers. Aroma is beautiful bouquet of American hops backed by honey sweetness. Flavor is loaded with floral hops, slight citrus notes backed by light honey sweetness (hydromel strength) that is perfectly matched to the hops. Finished clean on the palate.

HIGHB4LL (653) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Sampler at Scrumpy’s. Appearance: honey yellow, clear. Aroma: nice hops scent, citrus, floral, honey background. Palate: same sticky honey, but with light bitter finish that lasts a couple seconds. Taste: sweet honey, falling into mild bitterness. Overall, I really enjoyed this one, more so likely because I am more of a hoppy beer person than a sweet mead person.

Pour from a 500 mL can. Light yellow in color, sparkling in a nice way. Sweet, lots of honey and a nice bit of hops at the end. Not bad, but I don’t want to drink a ton of this.

Danyel (1072) - Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours light crisp yellow with little to no white head. Looks like a Chardonnay. Smells like flowers , honey, sweet. Has a very crisp backbone, very champagne-like, fruity, honey, very floral. Really very good- not too sweet, not too dry. I really like this mead!

Sammy (8910) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2013
A nice mead, hoppy, light yellow colour. Citrus and nice drinkability. Worth it for mead fans.

Autumn Brew Review, 2013. Clear color. Fairly dry, just a little sweetness. Mild hops in the aroma and more in the flavor.
