3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz. Bottle: Excellent hop aroma. Smells of hops, grapefruit, pineapple, resin, pine, grass and moss. Poured golden-amber in color with a small to medium sized, dense, creamy, white head that lasted throughout. Clear. Very sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and medium bitter. Tastes of hops, grass, pine, malts, light caramel, and herbs. Light to medium body. Thinish texture. Average carbonation. Hoppy, grassy, grainy finish. Much better than I had expected.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Filtered, clear yellow-orange color. Sweet, mellow peachy-apricot aroma. Highly filtered taste or lack there of. There is a pleasant, crisp hop balance to the beer that makes it passable. Mystery ABV. Overall a mildly hoppy, watery, session beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle courtesy Ibrew2o3. Golden pour, pale, frothy filmy white head, sticky lacing. Very piney nose, bitter hops. Pretty one-sided there. Malty flavors, but subdued, some acidity, slight hops. Tastes decent, but fairly mild and boring, but still drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from State Line. Dark straw pour with minimal white head. Nose is heavy mango, hops, passion fruit, mild funk. Solid aroma, but the flavor just seemed a bit off with this one. It had hops, mango, melon, and some funky and feety notes, but the ingredients didn’t mesh well and fell apart once it warmed up.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Courtesy Secret Santa July- Thanks! A wierd APA that seemed a little off. Aroma was decent. Stale hops and not much else. Pour was a nice light gold with a thin white ring for a head. Taste was wierd. Very astringent with stale hops and ashes in the aftertaste. Mouth drying bitterness and decent carbonation. Can’t get past this ashiness, though.

Pour blonde/golden. Lightly malty and rich hops. Sweet sugary malt, very light. Good brew, but lacking something to make it stand out.
