kokos666 (98) - Gliwice, POLAND - JAN 5, 2016
Bottle in Uk. Aroma is light floral and citrus hops, some basement and caramel, not impressive. In taste almost no bitternes, bready, without american character. where are the hops????

Golden beer with white head, no lacing. Arouma has minimal hops. Not to much flavor. Somewhat of a hoppy flavor. Refreshing for a hot summer day

Jaumix (11) - Malaga, SPAIN - DEC 30, 2015
Nice beer. Very refreshing thanks to the citrusy hops. Pours a clear amber with an orangey head. Very aromatic and tastey but disappears quickly. Not my personal favourite.

Hanoi (711) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2015
Stunned I’ve not rated this, one of the first beers to hint at American brewing brilliance for me. Nose is soft fruit, peach, malt, slight tropical hops. Taste is malt, soft fruit, light herbal hops, hint of spruce, hint of mint. What was an eye opener, has settled in to a comfortable middle age. Very balanced
