On tap at the brewery. Appley piney hops, mild, fruity and not very robust. Not sure which hop variety this edition was, but it would be better utilized in a blend.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice amber gold with a nice white head. Aroma is an initial pine hoppiness, followed by fruit, and a fresh hop like accent. Taste is a straight forward hoppiness with little depth to it, light alcohol, some honey like sweetness.

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.
