3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft pour on tap at GTMW 2012 (Madison, WI). Pours a rich straw hue, mellow haze. Frothy whitish. Laces small. Aromas are citrusy and fruity, grapefruit and lemon, a bit Amarillo sweet slanted. Initial is lighter bodied offering some firm flavorsn citrus and fruit, bready malts, a touch doughy. Citrus, grapefruit, gumball into the middle. A bit dry into the backend. Fairly clean, more sweet hop Amarillo flavor. Not my favorite of their hopped offerings, but solid.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Sanctuary. Poured a slightly hazy golden color. Lovely looking. White head with decent retention and lacing. Citrusy hop aroma (grapefruit, orange zest) with that distinct body odor/poorly ventilated gymnasium smell that you get from certain hops accented by pale malt. Light to medium bodied and delicately sweet with mild to moderate bitterness. Body odor, grapefruit, subdued grape candy, graham cracker, and honey touched cereal grain flavors.

Tap at Dexters pre party. Clear medium amber. Lots of berry Nelson hops in the nose and flavor, light biscuit malt presence in the flavor. Dry finish, bitterness at a 5. Mod carbonation with a light to med body. Very tasty. Will add more at the great taste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very hazy yellow color with a small head.
The aroma is bright and pungent, plenty of grapefruit, brilliant fresh hops, spice, and pine needles are all present. The aroma is very hop forward and does a great job of presenting the multi-leveled character of the Nelson Sauvin hop.
The flavor is much of the same from the aroma with the pineyness, spiciness, and grapefruit. The beer is very dry, crisp, and leaning towards the high level of bitterness.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler. Medium and very hazy apricot colored pour, spotty head and a really nice aroma of fresh oranges and peaches. Flavor is dry and bitter woody peaches and grapefruit and just enough malt to stand up to some good creamy bitterness on the finish. Pretty damn good, and a steal at $10 for a growler fill.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Toppling Goliath, pour is a straw like color with minimal head. Aroma is some dank hops, some citrus and a bit of malt. Taste is lots of dank and resinous hops with a nice malty/cracker like flavor to it. Really reminds me of Zombie Dust, solid beer.
