Bottle. Good caramelly hop aroma. Cloudy red amber colour. Very small off-white head. Good bitterness. Not so sweet, but sweet enough. Grassy hop note, quite caramelly and nice. A bit dry for my tastes, but good.

bhensonb (13737) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 10, 2009
Bottle from Archer Liquors. Copper color with a large beige head that collapsed with a bit of lace. Huge citrus/cat pee aroma. Can’t even smell malt. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is mildly citric hop over some light malt. But that doesn’t mean it’s not hoppy. There’s a lot of florality. I think this is one of those fresh hop beers, and I think this bottle must be rather fresh. Really hops the mouth. Great mouthfeel.

Bottle. Dark amber color medium white head. Complex aroma of sweet malt and hops. Flavor was very good and finish was strong with small bite. Good beer to use as my 100 beer rated on this page. Great service.
