12oz bottle pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a small off-white head. Mild hops and sweet playdoh caramel malt. Sweet caramel and simple light dry hop spice. Drinkable, not horrible, but pretty boring.

12oz bottle shared by Chalemeaux. Thanks, TJ! Best by date 03/17/15. We’re a bit late. Pours orange gold with an off white head. Aroma is mild citrus, cracker. White bread and honey up front (a bit too sweet) with lemon leading to a mild grassy bitterness.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear, light gold, with minimal head. Aroma is grassy and a bit metallic. Flavor is very grassy, with slight malt sweetness. There’s a metallic aftertaste. Kind of watered-down, like a light IPA (if there were such a thing). Not the best.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Earthy, bready, malty base with a punch of dry hops that comes in through the finish. Smooth, a bit watery. Not the best of this new style, but not horrid.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Pours golden amber with a filmy off-white head. Nose is mellow grassy/pine hops with a dry malt base and a dusty yeastiness. Taste is a blend of dry, crackery malt and herbal/pine hops. A little watery. Finishes smoothly bitter. Thin-bodied and medium carbonated.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Excellent appearance with a huge, off white, thick, very durable head, lots of lace, and a clear, dark gold color. Aroma is simply fresh hops and a bit of malt. Flavor is dominated by the fresh hop, some sweet malt to balance, perhaps a bit too much carbonic tang. Body is decent; above average, but just as it does seem a tad thin. Not a bad drinking beer.

Pours clear light orange lots of head and medium lacing. Nose is somewhat fruity and maybe a bit of earthy bitterness. Flaviurs are fruit, maybe peach and some light pineapple, cheerios and some light pine. Medium/light body with lively carbonation. Just ok.

A softly hazed, sunny golden body supports a short frothy-tight white head creating tiny dots and lines of lace all around with a solid ring
Bright, juicy citrus-tropical-melon with balancing earthy notes over subtle sweet biscuit malt on a smooth, medium-light body offering slightly sharp carbonation and bitters leading to a dry, refreshing residual
