3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed as an after shift drink. Floral aroma, full bodied, citrus, yeast, and sweetness all balance well. Alcohol content is well hidden. First taste of a Bruery beer will have me keeping an eye out for more from this SoCal brewery.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Arrived to the table in a tulip glass a golden yellow in color with a slight haze to it and a tall white head that had a good staying power. Aroma had a strong hoppy note with some notes of centennial hops, slightly spicy with a light grainy and wheat malt ending. Lemon citrus is pretty potent in the nose. Flavor has a very strong lemon juice citrus throughout the entire tasting. A great leafy hops bite follows early with a smooth wheat and yeasty flavor at the end which meld with the light grainy presence. Body is moderately heavy with a very fine and mild carbonation rate. Texture is very crisp and the flavors are delivered very well. Overall a great beer. Alcohol can be felt. Lemon flavor is strong but it fits well with the strong hops bite.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours with a huge white head that leaves great lace over a hazy golden body. Aroma of styrofoam at first, but that blows away leaving a very nice mesh of hops, a few tropical fruit and pine, belgian yeast, grass and pepper. Taste is peppery, and pleasantly soothing tropical fruit hops (amarillo? simcoe?) and nice belgian yeast. Fizzy and dry.
This beer needed time to warm up, my rating improved .3 after allowing it to warm.
