3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. I don’t like many beers by this brewery, but this one is not too shabby. Pours a clear gold with a frothy head. Aroma is citrusy. Flavor is herbal and floral with some citrus notes. You can still taste the "lager". Somewhat full bodied. It’s ok.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Hazy light amber body. Frothy, off-white head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of leafy hops, toasted grain, grass, lemon peel, spice. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Taste of pine, resin. Aftertaste of raw grain and fresh, leafy hops. Thought it could be cleaner, crisper.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly tropical citrus and pine hop aroma. Flavor is remarkably rich and hoppy. Tangy tropical hops. Well rounded flavor from start to finish. Must be the lagering. My only complaint is that it is a bit cloying and full bodied for a 5% offering. Tasty but not all that refreshing.

Nicely integrated hop profile with a good amount of depth. Dry finish, highly sessionable. Probably my favorite beer I’ve tried from boston beer co.

330 ml bottle in New York. Pours a light amber with a white head. Aroma is fruity/grapefruit, & pine/caramel. Taste of light pine, spruce, light floral, and light carame. Palate mostly comes through like an ipa slightly above the average especially in the nose. Pleasantly surprised with this one!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
What a pleasant surprise. I am not a big fan of this brewery’s products, but I thought this was exceptionally good. A real punch of grapefruit on the palate with a very nice mouthfeel, and it goes down dreadfully easy. Nice head with plenty of lacing. Finish is pine, grapefruit and floral. What a great summer drink...hops without the heaviness that good IPAs can leave you with, which can be a little much on a hot day. Hope I can find this on draft somewhere. Well done, Sam!
