From bottle at Royal Oak Beer Fest. Solid beer. Foamy head on pour. Creamy body. Very subtly hops in favor of slightly sour yeasty wheat characteristics.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2014 On tap at Triangle Wine Co. Pours a hazy gold with a small white head. Aroma is grassy, hoppy and a little citrus. Taste is citrus hops forward with an almost oak flavor in the end and lasting smooth bitterness. Body and texture are slightly above average. This is quite a nice surprise. I have never heard of the brewery but it’s something worth giving a shot. Recommended if you like IPAs or hoppy beers.

Pours a hazy yellow with a medium white head...solid lacing and retention. Aroma has nice grass and light hoppy spice. Flavor has great hoppiness...fresh...grassy and spicy...solid bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium/full and silky with a dry grassy finosh that is fresh and pungent. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at The Bruery, poured into taster. Hazy yellow in appearance with thin white head that settles to a persistent film. Leaves some lacing. Aroma is hop-forward with citrus, floral, and pine. There is a little grain, too. Hops carry the day in taste, too, with a moderate bitterness that is less than expected based on the nose. A thin ribbon of sweet malts is perceptible in the background. Nothing shocking in the palate: medium body, crisp texture, average carbonation, dry bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on draft at Mekong. Clear straw pour with very ample pillow top white head. Nice clean citrusy hop With not any floral or fruity notes. Its kinda like an american hopped pale pilsner. not Too spicy. Interesting, but I’d rather just have them make sours...
