3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 2/10/2014.
Clear orange body. Small white head. A little bit of surface wisping.
Smells kinda like simcoe. Grapefruit with that garlicky aroma. Not as intense as simcoe, though.
More orangey flavor, especially up front. A little bit grainy. Resiny in the back, but it’s minimal. The dank-ish simcoe flavor is gone here.
Medium body. Slight astringency in the back. Minimal bitterness.
I like this slightly better than Orange. Not an enormous difference, side by side I can make a distinction.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour out of bottle, hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of slight pine, grass, lemon peel into a bit of orange, slight bready notes with a hint of floral hops. Taste was a mix of floral, earthy, grassy hops into a bit of yeast, bread, slight orange, lemon notes, finishing slightly dry, bitter

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Pours hazy and yellow with a tiny, short-lived, white head. The hop-driven nose is peppery with big-time citrus fruits and a slight armpit characteristic. Medium to full-bodied and sticky with modest carbonation. The flavor is bittersweet, featuring honey and corn sweetness. More sweet than bitter – by far. Lengthy, mostly sweet finish. Bottle shared by ctipping!

22oz bottle. Thanks to Iphonephan! March 2014 DC Tasting. Poured a yellow color with a small white head. Aroma is light malt, some very mild citrus and some decent malt notes. Flavor was sweet, mostly nondescript, but better hop character then the yellow-label.
