COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Floral notes. Gentle citrus and pine. Bitterness is gentle while still giving some IPA bite. Not a ton of hop flavor, but itís a pleasant beer. Hallertau would go well in a simple malty beer with high levels of late hopping or a dry hop. A little bit of spice and some darker notes but mostly just pleasant. Not really an IPA.

Bottle. Same dark orange-amber and high, large-grained, lacy head as the rest in the series. Nose seems muted; itís bread, orange, a touch of metallic, and what I can only call dusty nutmeg. Thereís a bitterness on the tongue like weak black tea with lemon, followed by more muted spice notes, orange, and bready elements. Finish is long and whisper-thin; puts me in mind of instant iced tea powder. I donít think this hop is strong enough on its own; in the end, itís like beery Nestea.

Draft at Moriartys. Clear deep gold pour. Fizzy/foamy white head mostly disappeared. Citrus, resin hops. Medium-light caramel malts.

Bottle. This is a solid IPA. It is very well balanced. It has a nice hop flavor.

Gold pour, big white head. Light aroma of citrus, lemon, toffee, bread. Flavor is pretty minimal. Pine, flowers... whyyyyy

joejames (105) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle to English pint glass. Pours clear golden/copper, one finger head that lingers. Aroma of pine, lemon zest, grass, caramel. Taste is earthy bitter with lightly sweet caramel backbone. Body is almost medium, slightly soapy mouth feel, carbonation is average for the style. Finishes lightly bitter with notes of lemon, grapefruit, spruce than caramel at the very end. Interesting.

boxofrane (2055) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle From Wegmans. Pours clear golden with a small white head that dissipates very quickly. Odd that the retention is so much lower on this single hop edition. The aroma has pineapple, peach, and a bit of a floral note. The taste has a bigger bitterness than the other editions, balances with some orange pith, light grapefruit juice.

firemarshal (145) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle from mix pack. Pours clear; amber in color. Aroma is floral, pine, caramel. Flavor is lemon-lime hops overwhelmed by cereal malts. Too thick and syrupy for my taste.

ICEatALAMO (911) - Troy, Michigan, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle. Iíll admit this is an old bottle. The aroma is all piney hops. The color is a golden orange, solid. The taste actually has held up well. The hops are smooth throughout and not overly bitter. I think if this beer had a different label as an ipa other than sam adams it would have a much higher score. Solid brew.

warhawk91 (297) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - JUN 20, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2014 12 oz. bottle. Clear Golden copper, off white head. Aroma is caramel, earthy, spicy hops. Not much floral element. Taste is slightly sweet malt with earthy, almost herbal hop bitterness which intensifies late on the sip. Kind of has pale ale characteristics more than an IPA. The hop is German so I guess it makes sense.
