3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a extremely medium sized head of foamy very light brown colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent light orange brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of mild citrus crisp and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Caramel malt, herbal aroma; a tiny amount of sulfur-ish aroma. Herbal, citrus, peppery hop flavor--with a light caramel malt flavor that gets sweeter in the finish.
"Enjoy by Nov. 2013"

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very tasty. Definitely much hoppier than the typical lager. A little weak for my personal taste but I sure won't turn one down!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Burnt orange pour, white head. Nose is citrus with a nice malty backbone. Smooth, oily from the hops, crisp bready finish from the lager yeast.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I wasn’t sure what style this was but assumed it was an IPA, and I was more or less right. Definitely better than a standard pale lager, so don’t even put it in that classification. What you get here is a crisp, clean, easy-drinking but ultimately average beer lacking any real distinction. It’s not going to take the beer world by storm but it is a perfectly fine mainstream pale ale--a bit softer in the hops than most IPAs, I’d suggest. Bottle.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2013 Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. The smell was fantastic with a strong earthy scent. Every time I brought the glass up to taste I enjoyed the smell. Not much head but decent lacing. Nice gold color. Drinks easy with a lingering hoppyess. I canâ€™t pick out flavors yet, but itâ€™s good!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber pour with a thin white head. The nose is a little bit citrusy and tropical. A bit of kiwi and some light orange and mango citrus. Juicy and tasty with a lingering bitterness. I like the hop profile they have going on here - clean and tasty. There’s a bit of malt sweetness in here as well. Pretty nice brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 9, 2014 Bottle: Perfect amber & copper with exceptional clarity from head to toe. Foamy, white head reduces quickly to a thin skin that lasts for a while, leaving extremely spotty lacing. Aroma is light, with bits of orange peel, vegetal & leafy hops, light white pepper, mild onion notes, grass, and some steel-tinted caramel. Faint citric notes throughout the aroma as well. Taste is crisp & snappy with lots of lemon and grapefruit pith up front, leaving a nice bitter bite on the tongue. Lemon & orange zest, leaves, grass, and a touch of pine. Mild back-end peppery spice and light onion notes, though not off-putting. A touch of balancing sweetness from the borderline caramel-tasting Munich malts; finish is still dominated by fading hop bitterness. Pretty good option for a hoppy session beer.
