3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Bottle] shared by Greg and Caleb. Pours cloudy gold with a small, soapy white head. Resinous hop aroma, a little woody, pine, very fresh hops, lightly vegetal, and a little lemon. Flavor isnt quite as good - a little vegetal, the hops don’t have as much depth, and the malt isn’t quite there.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2012 Bottle thanks to Santa//fonefan! Clear light yellow pour, a little carbonation and a nice sweet syrups fruity hop aroma. Flavor is slightly bitter hop juice, a little light dry lemon zest and citrus and a little medicinal on the finish.. Really liked this.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ home. Cloudy yellow color, average sized white head that diminishes quite quickly. Very nice aroma of hops and citrus. Taste malts, hops, bitter and citrussy in the finish. Decent, but not convincing enough. A little thin as well, not enough body imo.

33 cl bottle, Sheffield, UK via The Dram Shop. 12 Days of Xmas at home beerfest. Apricot coloured, medium haze, nectarine and pear aroma with a backing of cardamom and clove. Bright fruity hops, initially sweet like fruit juice concentrate, then a gradual but eventually intense peppered finish. Quite tart at the back of the throat, very nice.
