12 oz bottle-pours a foamy to rocky offwhite head with gold color. Aroma is citrus hops, sweet. Taste is sweet caramel malt, light citrus hops. Overall mild beer that the hops don’t quite balance with the malt. Light mouthfeel. OK carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich citrousy hop aroma. Average golden color with a white head that laces a bit. Starts with a sort of lemon/grapefruit combination, followed by malt balanced by hop. The finish is light citrus hop. Medium mouthfeel which thins upon swishing. Just a bit light for a hophead, but very good. I mean it does not claim to be a NW DIPA.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle shared courtesy of TomDecapolis. Opened to a loud pop proceeded by a light gush of beer over my bar. Poured a medium golden color with a large sized white head. some floaters. Aromas of lemons and other citrus fruits with caramel. Tastes of pretty much the same. I had a harder time picking out the tastes as the fizzy body detracted from them. Did I say this had a fizz body?
