3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Parlor City in CR. Big, dense rocky head. I got no real aroma. Flavors are fruity (though not really the blueberry they say), a dry finish. Good, not great.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
"Kind of excited about this one, but I’m not sure if I just don’t like this hop or if its something else. I got some floral notes and there’s more than ample bitterness, but instead of the berries and pepper promised I got skunk, in the nose and a little in the flavor. Enough to distract. Not a bad beer, but not all that great, either."

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The newly developed 291 varietal hops used in this beer has intense floral and berry bouquet. Light to medium bodied mouth feel. It's strange but it's like I only feel the hops on my tongue and nowhere else in my mouth with their delicate bite.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
24oz bottle. Pale color. White chunky foam, sexy lace. Aroma of skunky resin. Heavenly nose. Toasted grains, pale malts, and loads of hops smell. Sticky texture. Very bold, pale grains backbone. Citrus oil bitterness, lingering hops bite. Absolutely delicious. Finishes herbal & earthy. (4137)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from someplace in Brunswick, ME. Hazy gold with fluffy lasting white head and lace. Floral peppery aroma with some grapefruit and pine. Very mild fruity spicy sweetness hints of honey and peach with assertive woody piney grapefruit rind bitterness and extremely dry finish. Assertive carbo accentuates bitterness. Medium light. Very good.
