4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz served in a Great Divide pint glass.
A - Slightly hazed amber with 2 fingers of eggshell head that slowly melts into a thick cap. Impressive splotchy lacing left behind.
S - Sweet honey, earthy lavender, green stems, caramel malt, doughy yeast.
T - Follows the nose with floral hops, lavender, green spinach stems, spicy peppery bite, green chlorophyll on the back end.
M - Medium lush feel, crisp feel, medium to moderate carbonation.
Lots of green floral going on. A nice change of pace for the style.(My score is based on style).Iím use to tasting old IPAís but this was refreshing. Not something I would want to kill all night but I could put down a couple of these with a smile on.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Copper pour with a frothy white head. Way too much carbonation. Mild hop aroma. Rather floral as the name would imply. Flavor is bitter at the start then dries out in the middle. Definitely much more floral than citrusy, and a pity because I prefer the citrus. Too dry and bitter.

1.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Nice amber ale with a solid sheet of light tannish foam. Nose is dank - this is something I would expect from the likes of Lagunitas, not SN. This is onion, weed, body odor, and waaay deep in there a hint of orange concentrate. Not impressed. Flavor is quite bitter with some woody character and then some more onion - people describe the onion in some beers, and I rarely get it, but here itís just vile. Medium bodied with moderated carb. Iím not happy with this at all.

Iím currently rating every SN brew Iíve ever had in one clean sweep.
I grew up on the classic SN Pale having it around during high school, and since have watched SN grow into a national representation of incredible craft beer. Living 45 mins away is a treat for the random growler fill. Keep up the amazing work and thanks!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Golden Straw Hue/Amber Hue, Passes Some Light, White Head Ring, Some Lacing
S: Bready, Floral
T: Grainy, Biscuits, Mild Floral
M: Average Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Bitter, Mildly Drying
Overall, its good if you like bready/grainy IPAs but other than the bitterness and mild floral nose.taste, its way too much graininess.

hazy gold beer with a tidy white head. Palate is light and a little crisp. Mild minerals. Orange hops with a mild marmalade vibe. Malt cream. Nice fruity floralness from the rosehips. Traces of lemon and floralness. Finishes semi dry. Hangs together well and is very drinkable.

Not my favorite brew from this years box but worth the time to drink. The aroma was the best thing about the brew. The flowery hops were awesome to partake in

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by drsilverworm. Pours a translucent copper with a white head of foam. Aroma is floral, imagine that, grassy, and herbal. Tastes fine, especially considering the age of the beer.
