4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12-oz. bottle into a pint glass. Color was caramel paleish. About a finger of head. Gray lacing on the top with a very small gap near the sides. Film was frothy on the sides, pretty even.
Smelled pretty balanced initially. I got citrus hops with tangerine seeming to lead the way with some lemon in there, too. Also some nice sweet floral notes. Once again, very balanced smell.
Tasted pretty similar to the nose with the impressive balance of hops and floral notes. Citrus hops, grapefruit mainly, coming in there.
Light body. Thin, oily texture. Average carbonation. Smooth finish.
A pretty good beer overall. I canít get over how balanced this beer was.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. I usually end up rating about the same as everyone else, but I am far from think this is a 97. Maybe I will have to try again, but this one was unforgettable and the taste was slightly off...maybe the heavy malt profile instead of hops? Nope this one was not for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle, Whole Foods Columbus. Copper-amber pour, lovely thick pillowy white head dissipates into a medium ring and retains gobs of lacing down the glass. Aroma exhibits lots of pine and citrus, bready. Flavor grassy, caramel, sharply bitter. Mouthfeel is medium, creamy, almost silky; nice. I donít think the malt -quite- stands up to the hops here and so I think this is a nice beer but I donít find the balance to be quite right. Tasty, though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from New Frontier Market, Eugene. Pours a golden orange, some white head. Nose crisp and citrusy, just a hint of pine. Body full and lively, finish has a resiny bitterness, but really complex, a tangy sweetness as well. Surprised at how much is going on, especially for the price. Not to be slept on.
