12oz bottle from Manahawkin Spirits. Pours a crystal clear gold color with a finger of foamy white head. Aroma is citrusy and tropical. Bready malts, pineapple, apricot, grapefruit, etc. Taste of sweet grains and yeast, followed by orange and lemon zest, spicy hops, and pine. Aroma is the winner here!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden with a medium foamy white head with excellent lacing. The aroma is well balanced and semi-strong with notes of earthy pale grains, toast, and nutty toffee but also with a strong hoppiness of grassy notes and a little herbal hop resin. The flavor is clean and not too lingering. The malty start is a little too effervescent and cereal-ish for it’s own good with some herbal hop notes and a bit of leafy hop resin on the finish. Light-ish and mostly forgettable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Shop Rite-Hoboken, 10/20/13
Aroma: The nose is light and citrusy, some grassy hops, some pale malts, and spice
Appearance: It pours a clear golden color with a small head and medium-plus lacework
Flavor: The taste is a little citrusy, with a clean hop flavor and some light malt and spice notes
Palate: The body of this one is light-medium, it has a clean feel, and a long, dry finish
Thought this one lacked a bit in the aroma, but the flavor makes up for it a bit. It’s a nice, dry one. It could use a little more interesting of a flavor profile, but it does have a solid hop profile. Decent.

Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a golden orange appearance with a thin off white head. Vanilla cake, grapefruit, tropical fruit, quite herbal aroma. A bit chewy, herbal/fruity, pineapple, grapefruity hoppy, toasted malty, a bit grassy, slightly sweet flavor. Not a bad beer.
