3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bomber) Pours a super hazy orange color with a large white head that leaves sheets of lacing on the glass. Reminds me of an egg, so I guess thatís worthy of a 5. Interesting aroma here; fresh cut parsley, dill, capers, and first flush darjeeling. Really herbal. Some pine in here as well along with orange zest. The flavor is hard to describe, but what Iím mostly getting is some honeydew melon right up front thatís followed by a salty and earthy component. I guess itís kind of like mushrooms in a sense. Finishes fairly bitter with a slight tea-like astringency. Overall this is decent.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at 4 Hands Lupulin Festival 2014 - Pours clear golden with a white head. The aroma has funky / tropical hoppiness with some caramel and grass in there as well. It has a medium / light smooth body with mild carbonation. The flavor starts off grapy, catty and funky with the hops and some clean mild toasty malt hanging out in the back. The finish is fruity and dank. Quite nice.

Bottle @ home, courtesy tossed via Flair. Slightly hazed orange pour with a soapy white head. Smells of green onion, juicy grapefruit and orange, and huge pine. Slight biscuit malt note. Fairly bitter on the tongue. Some bitter green onion and garlic. Lots of pine and orange rind. Slight marmalade note. Huge resin on the finish. Not bad.

Bottle shared by Colin. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Light floral hop aromas. Crisp and clean with light florally hop notes. Good balance with just enough of a malt backbone to keep her honest. Good body and mouthfeel.
