UPDATED: SEP 10, 2011 Bottle from whole foods in Allen. This beer pours a golden amber with a thin off white head. The aromas are natural gas, citrus, dough. The mouthfeel is dry and slightly watery with a medium body. Cheers!

12 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured an evenly turbid brazen copper color, extremely thin white ring around the glass for a head, next to zero carbonation, no lacing, sits very still upon the vessel. Aroma of pine and citrus hops by the gravity barrel load. Hits the mouth with a wide medium body, malt was just slightly caramelized, hops come crashing in the middle, finish is harshly acidic yet very enjoyable. Toes the line of IPA, but whatever you want to call it, it’s damn good!

Got a fresh bottle, and the aroma most certainly said so - like fresh spring water, fresh bread, tangerine and hops! The flavor was crisp, with grassy notes and light malts before a delicate hop finish. At 5.2% this is incredibly drinkable, I should have gotten more than one.

A nice if ordinary pale ale. Citrus aroma and taste is well balanced with the sweetness of the malts. The taste and overall quality of the beer lacks a crispness that I prefer in this style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear, classic golden color with a one-finger, creamy, antique white head. The head dissipates too quickly, or I would’ve scored its appearance a 4. A well, balanced malt/floral hop bouquet is noted. A relatively rich mouthfeel yields to some mild astringency late. There’s something peculiar lying a the flavor’s foundation that disrupts the malt and hop characters. Almost like petroleum jelly. Nearly flavorless, yet has a distinctive flavor. It’s not off putting. Just disrupts what would otherwise be the natural flavors of the ale. It takes on the hop character and bitterness of a session IPA, but with a smidgeon better malt backbone.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle that says "enjoy by Sept 19 2011." Hmm. Pours a clouded light amber with a white head. Aroma is honeyish at first, some stale floral hop aroma, stale biscuit. Flavor is biscuit, again rather stale, light honey, stale herbal and citrus hops. This doesn’t seem to have held up that well.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A coworker brought a 6er of this to our recent beer club meeting. Poured a slightly hazy dark gold with foamy white head. Aroma is extremely floral and lemony. Flavor totally reflects aroma. To me it tasted like someone literally took rose petals and soaked them in a keg of a very light apa. Almost a soapy lavender flavor to it. Overall, not really my thing. Very different from your typical apa.
