3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A healthy aroma of hops introduces this beer. The glass is filled with a Venetian gold liquid tat settles under a small white head.
The taste is a bitter hoppy one that lingers well.

Good initial flavor, nice finish. Notice how I didn’t say great anywhere there...

Good stuff. On tap and out of the bottle. Nice and crisp flavor. Could drink multiples here. Certainly not the best pale ale, but it’s great to have it so close to Atlanta.

Wow! How can I explain it?
This is the most full-flavored, smoothe, aftertaste-free beer you will ever drink!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big, coarse, white head; clear, copper-yellow body. Faint aroma of citrusy hops. Taste is clean and light, dominated by the citrus hops, with a a clear, bitter finish. An okay ale.

Small offwhite head thats short lived with little lace. Lightly hazy gold/copper hued brew. Light, raw hop nose with a light caramel maltiness coming through also. Body is light/medium. Light roasty malt flavors, light hop, citrusy with a faint earthyness. Finish is dry, quick. Thanks goldtwins!

Draft. Served way too cold in an icy mug, which made discerning an aroma difficult. Very enjoyable taste- nicely balanced. I would like to try it again.

Think both that they have a different thing in mind when it comes to 420 and that I’m one spoiled guy. Not only are there more and more good beers coming into Texas, but I get this one kindly hand delivered by a good friend and I have the audacity to pick it apart. Not really too much to quibble over as it IS good. I just expected there to be somewhat more aggressive hops. There are hops and probably more than my abused tongue even knows. Tad on the sweet side, but look at the brewery name fer goodness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
pours a kind of cloudy golden/orange color with a decent head and good amount of lacing. Aroma is moderately hoppy with hints of fruits and flowers. Very light floral flavor with slight hints of hops in the flavor as well. Pretty good light summer beer! Definitely one i could drink three or four of in a sitting.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours with an orange-gold body topped by a medium thick to thick head with a good amount of lacing. It’s sweet, fruity and floral with a nice subtle hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied, smooth and crisp.
