ctipping (1347) - Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2016
650 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 2/10/2014. Clear orange body. Small white head. A little bit of surface wisping. Smells very oniony. More than the last one, which I also thought was a bit oniony. Minimal cracker malt. Some light citrus. Tastes of grapefruit. Some herbal notes. Kind of nondescript. Like a medley of hops. It does have a nice tropical fruit flavor going on, though. This one is significantly more bitter than the others. Bitter. Medium body and carbonation. It’s another well made beer, even if this hop varietal isn’t very exciting.

hopscotch (10609) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2015
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!

thome50 (1285) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - MAR 8, 2014
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.
