Growler from Whole Foods. Sweet, floral aroma and a light brown pour without much of a head. The flavor is smooth, sweet, and malty, which shifts to a pleasantly sharp green tea bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap pours cloudy orange, cannot see through it. Aroma is sweet malt with super grassy hops. Really old style hoppiness (circa 2006). Flavor is lesss sweet, some citrus and some light grass. Has a thicker mouthfeel. This hoppy beer seems dated, its not dry, its not sweet hops, its not tropical hops, its all just grass hops. Is Simcoe that boring, my memory fails me.

Sample at barcade, poured clear golden with not much head and lacing. Bland notes of simcoe, not skunky or tropical. Lots of pine and malt. Just an average IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Untapped Dallas. Orange with a white head. The aroma is a mix of floral notes with some biscuit malt. The flavor is similar. I get a good bit of spice in the flavor as well as some floral character and some biscuit and caramel malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Draft, in Austin TX of all places. An orange beer, bright and alive. Thin top. Nice and floral, yet an easy drinker. Cloying dryness, but light and drinkable. Quite enjoyable. (#5240, 9/1/2013)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the DBLDP on 09/01/2013. The beer is a clear orange-gold color with a medium foamy white head that dissipates steadily to some wispy patches. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of hops, tropical fruit and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, pineapple and toasted malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a floral hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Do I even need to describe this? The color is yellow and orange and pulpy. The white, foamy head lasts forever. The aroma is floral hop cone. The flavor is bitter and light pine. Eureka!
