3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours amber with an offwhite head, aroma isnít very strong actually, I get a hint of flowery and herbal hops, a bit of sweet malts, but aroma is lacking. Taste is better, but still not what I was wanting, has a nice hop bitterness that stays in check, definitely fresh tasting, good for some refreshment, nothin special but its good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle from beer camp twelve pack. Gold pour with solid thin head and soapy stick. Aroma is herbal, floral, pine hops and caramel. Tastes are same with bitter floral, lemon, grass. Oily hop vibe. Seems like itís going to be a big harsh floral bitter bomb (and it sort of is) - but balances nice and is quite drinkable.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap. It looks like a typical IPA in appearance, with a goldish color and white head and lacing, but it has the freshest hop (and flower) aroma and taste Iíve ever tried. It is like drinking a hop picked just off the vine. The malt comes through enough in the taste, but this is definitely a hop-head beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 8/30/12, lucky #75 for Aug í12
Aroma: It is a bit muted at first, but comes out as it warms: floral notes, pine/resin hops, and bready malts
Appearance: Pours a hazy, slightly dark, orange color, with a small, frothy, white head and medium lace
Flavor: The hops come out more in the flavor: it tastes light-med sweet, and has a medium hop bitterness
Palate: This one has a light-medium body, a somewhat sticky feel, a soft carbonation, and a dry finish
When I first opened this one, the nose was a little too muted, but as it warms, the nose improves a bit. The flavor also bring with it many of the same characteristics, and they work pretty well. Let this one get in the neighborhood of cellar temperature, and it works fairly well.
