4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from bomber, no bottled-on date. Pours a lightly-hazy amber-gold with decent, fluffy head. Awesome nose of super candy-like pink lemonade, peach, lime, and some parfumy floral notes. Flavor highlights much of the floral/foliage notes on the front as it eases into those candy flavors of lemon-lime and strawberry. Clean malt base with light-medium mouthfeel and average carbonation. Fair bit of bitterness coasting throughout, but flavors still shine. As it creeps to room temperature, flavor introduces itself coniferously and drops into a nearly Hi-C fruit punch hop flavor. I am growing very fond of this one.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Crystal Hero 22oz bottle from Aficionados. This beer pours a very hazy amber with a fine head of tiny white bubbles. Nose is prevalently floral hops with a bit of natural sweetness. Taste is clover honey with a very small amount of hops on the back end. Body is lively. Finish is just a touch of good bitters and natural honey flavor. A very nice, balanced IPA.

Poured from a 22oz bottle from my buddy Kaser
Pours a hazy-ish orange color - although it is pretty clear.
Strong orange aroma, but the taste makes a great impression.
Very juicy and crisp at the end
Going to enjoy this beer.
