3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden pour with a big white head. Nose is kind of bland. Bready malt, sweet citrus hop notes, and floral aromas. Kind of watery, too. The flavor is not all that impressive either. Bread, some toast, and maybe a little bit of citrus. Floral hops, light pine, and a touch of bitterness on the finish.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It’s back, and in bottles. This one from Corti Brothers. Pours dark gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is interestingly spicy. And citrusy. Med body til the foam leaves. Flavor is very light caramel with some spice and citrus. I could believe there’s a trace of rye in it. Quite tasty for the ABV.

Bottle @ home. CLear golden color, average sized white head. Aroma is moderately malty with a nice amount of fruit hops and slightly floral hops. Taste is light to moderately malty, again nice fruit and floral hops, although after a while the fruit hops fade a little and some spicy, lightly herbal and floral hops become more dominant. Moderately bitter, ok body, medium carbonation. Decent.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Thanks zvikar. Golden-colored. Aroma of citric hops, kinda stale, and some cookie-ish malt. Flavor has some sweetish maltiness and citric hops, a bit stale, with decent bitterness. Medium-bodied. Not fresh enough but still OK.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Botled 03/08/13. Seems like they might have been slow to roll this out in chi. Its a clear golden amber pour with a nice head. Dry hops subdued at this point. IT has a sharp toffee scent, bread, and still retains a bit of the tropical hops. The flavor is decent. Almost light lager-like with a good bready malt base and a hint of toastiness. Medium to low bitterness, lemony hop flavor. Very light and easy-drinking. I like it as a summer beer but it’s a bit old.

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.
