3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle... Pours hazy and yellow with a temporary, white head. This smells almost exactly like the “X Hops Series - Blue.” Medium to full-bodied and creamy with stinging carbonation. This is too sweet for an American pale ale; just like the “Blue” version, but this is even sweeter. A low degree of bitterness is merged with corn, cereal grains and honey on the backside. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!

Bottle. Pours a nice orange golden with small head. Aroma is malty garbage with some slight citrus peel going on. Taste is again malt forward, to say the least, with a stale hop presence. Some black licorice and candy notes. Overall, this was possibly an old bottle.

Piney aroma on this pale ale leads to a cloudy gold color. This bitter citrus and pine flavor beers has a nice burn and very well carbonated.
