ROGUE (2086) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 15, 2012
On tap Birch & Barley Wash. DC. Pours a hazy, golden orange color with a finger of fluffy white head and decent retention. A lot of lemon zest and citrusy hop aroma on the nose. Taste has a really nice citrusy and grassy hop bitterness. A lot of lemon zest up front, followed up by the citrusy hops, and there is a hint of a grassy, earthy flavor in there as well. Light to moderate body, with a crisp, lively feel.

MBGSF 12 Draft. Poured a hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

A good amount of taste and drinkability for a lower abv beer, kudos for that craftsmanship.Not the usual hop flavour, citrus and the like. Yet the IBU is clearly there if not a bold taste. Drying finish. Lighter yellow with a quarter-inch of retained head.FlandersNed recent.

12oz Bottle. Thanks Sean! Dank fresh orange-scented strong hop aroma. The body at 3.5% is quite good I think. The hops start working their juices and push out pine and resin and citrus. I do get some styrofoam and dusty pellet hop gunk in the flavor, but generally it’s decent. Shorts does have a very distinct house hop flavor that edges seedy to me sometimes. Rather bitter and dry, which works at this low gravity to give you something to sip at a low gravity. Definitely enjoying the hop level at this gravity, but I think the profile could use a little tweaking.

deyholla (5958) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 24, 2012
Bottle. Pours a near clear orange gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma is full of earthy hops with notes of grass and leaves with backing earthy bread. Flavor is similar with earthy grass and a bit of grapefruit with backing bread notes.

Bottle courtesy of Jakers90. Served in a tulip. Pours a clear golden color with a pretty nice white head and some spotty lacing on the way down. The nose carries some light citrus hops with a touch of dankness in the background. Flavor is nice, but could use a little more hop flavor against the bitter background. Light body with fairly-heavy bitterness for the ABV. Pretty nice. This is a good summer brew. A session beer all can agree on.
