3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
"(Sterling hops version) a clean, simple, slightly citrus aroma and flavor. it was quite good, and I love the idea of highlighting each hop veriety, but their other hop bombs are better."

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ RR! 14 karat pour with a small ivory crown. Grapefruit pith, mango, papaya, and guava all present themselves in the nose and on the palate. Well crafted but not robust. Lots of subtleties that make it a cut above other single-hop beers I’ve had before but still not terrible complex. Glad I had a chance to try this!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Part of a sampler at the brewery. this one pours a super light golden with a small white ring of head. Very sweet citrus aroma, raw vegetal hops, grass, interesting. Flavor follows with lots of pine and vegetal hop bitterness, slightly dirty finish, not much sign of citrus here but that's ok. a very light bodied pale ale and medium carbonation. Overall the finish takes away from this, as it is a touch unpleasant. Only OK.

Draft - Hop 291 - Floral and sweet tropical fruit. Clear pale gold with a thin white head. Lots of tropical fruit with a hint of bitterness. A little too tropical and sweet, but still nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Russian River, pours a clear golden copper with a small white head. Aroma is very nicely hoppy, with notes of pine and floral hops. Flavour is quite strong for a pale ale, more like an IPA, with notes of pine, floral hops, and just enough crackery malt to back. So piney on the palate. Highly drinkable and thirst-quenching. Excellent beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. I didn’t hear very many good things about this one, so I only ordered a sample. I wish I could have had more because it was darn good! Light golden yellow with a white head. The aroma was floral and citrusy with hints of tropical fruit. The flavor was the same. Very fresh and hop forward. It may suffer a bit next to Pliny and Blind Pig or even Row 2, but it was a very nice, light hop forward beer.
