3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a slightly cloudy, light amber color with a white head on top.
S: The nose blew me away; this might be an English style beer, but itís all American hops. Lots of citrus hops (lemons, grapefruit, and tangerines?) with a hint of pine and perhaps even some pineapple notes. A light bready quality as you would certainly expect.
T: The flavor is similarly impressive. The bitterness provides a nice counterpoint to the bread and slightly sweet malt notes. The citrus flavors are once again intense and vibrant.
M: The body is maybe a little bit light, with a moderate to high level of carbonation.
D: This is just a very easy to drink and enjoy beer. Solid hop character thatís not really accurate for the style, but tastes phenomenal.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Russian River. Pours a chill hazed orange with a small, white head. No lace. Starfruit, watermelon candies, strawberry candies, something else sweet medicinal in the nose. Taste is neutral, a bit suddy, mildly bitter. Clean and very neutral to near bland. In a way it tastes like flavored tangerine seltzer water.
