It poured a straw color with a small white head. The aroma was of pine and some earthy notes with a little hot sauce. The taste was of grapefruit and pine bitterness. A different but good wet hop ale.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ Provisions Market. Golden pour with a white head. Really earthy hops. Lots of grass, dirt, and mushroom. A bit of funk, too. Meh. Bready malt and pine. Flavor is bitter and earthy. Lots of dirt and mushroom. Bread, pine, grass, and a mild malt sweetness. Not a fan.

A hop laden aroma with a hint of Brie cheese. The flavor is a sharp start and and smooth wet finish. A hint of grapes and honey in there

Bomber shared by Marcus. Pours brilliant gold with a slight, transient white head. Aroma is a very different green leafy perhaps earthy hop. Med body or better. Flavor is very green herb/veg. Finish is that plus earth. Very different.

Bottle from Capitol Beer. Pours dark gold with a transient off-white head and a rather strange earthy hop aroma. There is a medium-bodied caramel malt flavor with a moderately bitter hop finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden with thin lace of a head. Aroma of dank hops that are clearly fresh. Forward taste of of fresh dank hop that doesn't linger. Well balanced with malt. Not a huge fan of fresh hop beers but this is good for the style

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured over two fingers of head on a clear, medium straw colored body. Looking good.
The aroma is unique. It has the smell of a fresh cut habanero mixed with a little pine and dirt.
The taste has a moderate grapefruit and pine bitterness, fairly clean.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It’s a showcase of Californian hops (I’m still trying to figure out the actual varietal) and decent drink too.

Pours light Apricot but smells like a lager. Nice hoppy, malty palate and a very crisp, refreshing finish. This APA tastes like a lager. Nice!

Clear golden beer. Woody hop earthy smell. Nice hop bitter bite that slowly fades. The earthiness sticks around a bit extra.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear golden with a large off-white head. The aroma has grapefruit rind, earthiness, minor pine, some minor malt and dry caramel. It has a medium body which is on the rough side with a modest amount of semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts off dry as a bone with dry caramel and crackers along with hoppiness that is very earthy and bitter citrus rind heavy. The finish has a bit of breadiness and introduces some of the piny aspects. Super dry beer with lots of resiny hops and bitterness. Quite good.
