3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I’ve had this beer many times now. This rating is coming from the bottle. Pour is a hazy orange. Nose is lemon peel and hop cones and slightly soapy. Taste is light sweetness a touch of caramel, bread and peaches. Finishes with some nice dryness and hop spice. Tastes great especially on the colder side.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Fiery golden, moderate sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Hoppy nose, slightly dank and wet.   Strong pithy start, slight sweetness, hoppy, with a touch of floral notes.   Tastes better than it leads on with the nose.   Average body and mouthfeel.   Somewhat of a stale hop exit.   Moderate example, not too bright, but decent enough.   Just needs to be brighter, more vibrant.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Copper coloured body with a ridiculously large, eight centimetre tall soapy tan head - not very pleasant. Aroma of pale malt, light hops, earth, flowers and some yeast. Medium-bodied; Strong hoppy flavour with a bunch of floral and herbal notes and a lot of cardboardie malt with little else. Aftertaste shows some yeast and a biting floral note that shows decently. Overall, way too much carbonation in this one and the hop flavours were a bit overshadowed by the malt and there wasn’t enough complexity throughout. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 13-July-2013 for US$2.00 sampled at home in Washington on 09-August-2013.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Orange with a white head. The aroma is full of orange citrus and biscuit malt notes. The flavor is very similar with a few additions. I get a lot of orange and pine notes as well as some earth and biscuit malt notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
