UPDATED: FEB 7, 2014 A really interesting twist to the typical sweet meads that Redstone makes. The mead was a nice golden color and was medium to dry in sweetness. A little hop aroma but not to much to overpower the honey. From what I understand the mead will not be made again for some time because of the hop shortage.Get it while you can.---added now available in cans. Great idea.

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.

Clear dark yellow. Carbonated. Not terribly sweet. Deep flavor. Very delicious. Hint of spices.

On tap at 2011 Garden Grapes and Hops at the Denver Botanic Gardens. Clear light yellow, with a smell of strong honey sugar, and some outstanding flowery, resinous hop aromas. The flavor brought sweet honey tones to greet a lemony, sweet hop tone. Slight acidity, like candied lemon juice. Quite tasty and unique!

Now here’s a rare and interesting critter. Pretty much a clean-but-standard semi-sweet mead with a hoppy, fruity twist. There is a smidge of hop presence in the nose, and even less bitterness (though it is there). The overall effect is hard to quantify, but refreshing to figure out. My palette chases this all over the place. I really, really like it, though.

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!

Wow. The first mead I’ve ever had that smells of hops. Also the lightest alcohol mead for me as well. A very thin finish. Don’t get much hops or any really in the flavor.

"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. "

shared with thickfreakness at the Flying Saucer 8th anniversary party .. .Lots of odd aromas; light honey, english tea and nail polish dominate .. . pours a very clear yellow .. . very low bubbles .. funny enough, enjoyable, but you have to get over the smell .. .
