Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAY 2, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2013 Draft at Beer Run. Pours a clear pale golden color with a large creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of citrus and pine hops and faint pale malts. The taste is pale malts, citrus and buttered popcorn. Medium bodied. I see the other ratings of this are much better than mine, so I’ll try to re-rate from a bottle or a different keg. 7/4/4/2/11

Rerate.... Bottle this time. Better balance, and the buttered popcorn comes across as more doughy malts. They should know they’re lucky I even bothered this much of a re-rate after I just sampled the complete abomination that is the last batch of Bourbon Cryptical.7/4/7/4/14

jgb9348 (4652) - 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.
