3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is amber and hazy like honey. Large tight bubble head that is off white to cream in color. Aroma is lite but very hop forward. When you take a drink the first thing you will note is the texture witch is very dry and fizzy/carbonated then you get hit with hops and they stay on the palate like pepper. I love hops but if you do not this is the wrong beer for you.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber/brown in color with thin, quickly dissipating, white head. Aroma is caramel and slightly resinous hops. Tastes is malty, sweet caramel and mild pine up front, slightly bitter on the back end. Overall, its a decent beer, but nothing worth going out of your way for.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy pale golden color with a two finger white head that has good retention. Big aroma of strong floral and citrus hops. The flavor starts off with some nice floral hoppy bitterness that lasts throught. The hops assert themselves with some nice citrus qualities while letting the smooth and creamy malt flavors creep in, in the middle. The finish is dry with a floral, clean hop flavor. Medium body and light carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle fresh from the brewery. Nice looking pour: cloudy dark brown with a small khaki head and nice lacing. Aroma is kinda light: more malt than hop. Flavor is more of the same: malt and then some light bitterness at the finish. Fine overall.
