2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a brown 12 ounce bottle - Pours a slightly cloudy orange/yellow color. Smells sweet and hoppy. Below average carbonation. First sip is all grassy hops but is certainly missing a needed stronger malt backbone.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz, bottled 05/29/08. Clear, pale golden-orange with a large wasp-nest head that leaves meringue on the glass. Nice orange-grapefruit nose has a touch of honey and resin as well. Flavor has the citrus and resin on top and some light honey-nut grain underneath for a good balance. Light-medium body is tingly, dry, mostly smooth and a little watery. Good session ale.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A little bit of a gusher. Poured a clear golden color with a few floaters in the bottom of the bottle. Head was very large with a lot of big bubbles. Aroma was some nice citrus hops but also a lot of cereal, corn flakes and wheat yeast?
Flavor was like a mix between a pale lager and an IPA. Not terrible, but a little thin on the palate. Pretty "meh" sort of beer.
