3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
on tap at FFF....pours a semi-cloudy pale yellow brown with a frothy white head... light grassy citrus hop aroma, not as sweet as dread, and is short-lived... flavors of light citrus hops, slightly bitter, without a whole lot a depth but i wan’t expecting that from a second running. medium carbonation. average.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz draft sampled draft at the brewpub (Munster, IN). Pours a hazy golden straw, bright and lively with big offwhite head that dissipates to a small layer, decent lacing. Aromas are amazing, lemon and grass moving to light florals and grapefruit with some nice tropical fruit. Initial sets this brew back a bit, a little bland, very light pale malts, and some light grass and citrus coming through on the hop front. If this were lower abv, I’d be happy. But it is a shell of a great brew. Aroma and appearance rock, taste doesn’t give much as it turns bland into the mix. Ok.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub at DLD ’09. A fantastically hoppy and refreshing aroma (probably would only seem that way to a hophead though), except that there’s really nothing balancing out this hoppiness. Mangoes, peaches, florals, a tropical fruit citrus that is great, apple juice, orange juice , and with just every so slight pale malt that is evident. A pretty beer as well, with a smooth white fluffy head, no retention or lacing though, bright tropical orange color. Before actually tasting, this is beer is quite enticing, but definite disappointment arises after the first sip. Very good hoppy bitter, but no balance and a fairly watery feel. Flavor notes of light grapefruit, mango, melons, some lighter red berries, and medium fruits. There’s just really no perceptible maltiness, and that brings this one down alot. I still enjoyed drinking it, as it wasn’t a bad session beer and it was light enough to play drinking games with (which could be interesting). Overall, a disappointing result to a promising idea.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at Piece in Chicago. what the hell is this beer? One of the previous raters got this exactly right...plain and simple this is hopwater. Aroma is watery and barely any hops and flavor is soooo watery. So wierd. I guess if you were thirsty and wanted to drink something that barely tasted like beer, then this is it.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at Sheffield’s. I really needed to try this on draft along with the cask. It is very pale, crazy white head. It has distinctive lemom aroma, very floral. The body was simply to thin and watery. It was like hopwater.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Kinds watery but I tried after the dreadnaught. Had on tap at 3 Floyds. Good flavor and awersome aroma of lemon and grapefruit. Flavor left me wanting more (flavor).
