jgb9348 (4664) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Clear golden coloured body with a light copper glow and a very thin, single centimetre thick just off-white head. Aroma of light citrusey and resinous hops with some light sweetness, a hint of alcohol and a bit of pine and grapefruit. Light-bodied; Sharp deep hoppy notes with grass, herbs and resin the strongest flavours and a bit of malt near the end, but a very light and easy to drink beer. Aftertaste shows the dry hops and a hint of alcohol flavours, but almost no malt, no real depth and no pungency. Overall, a very nice light summer beer with tons of flavour still from the dry hopping and herbal notes. Great to sample and for the season (middle of summer) and style, this beer is great - definitely worth trying if you live in a hot area and you like hops! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Giant Food in Falls Church, Virginia on 22-April-2014 for US$1.49 sampled at home in Washington on 26-May-2014.

Darwenus (537) - Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2014
Not bad. Pours yellow/orange, not much head. The aroma is mild grassy hops and malt, and that’s the flavor, too. A little more burn in the finish than I expected.
