4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
ahhh....finally ... I can’t say much more or even well enough in summary as well as rich has said but here goes
Appearance: Nice bright gold hue....the body has a good 1/3 inch white frothy head....the head is near a sappyness in that it clings to the glass walls pretty nicely....
Smell: Great sweet apple/star-fruit/mellon aroma...hints of floral pine but a great overall nose satisfication
Taste: Great sweet delicate grapefruit taste without any bitterness....not sure how they did that...jolly rancher apple bursts...pears and mellons seem to be the underlying additive....great balance and depth...no malty backbone as rich has stated...nice hop punch... not as overwhelming as I was prepared for....but I like it that way
Notes: I am amazed with this limited release...there were only 32 cases I blieve that night and I am happy to say I have one of them...great stuff
: Reviewed this one again...I realised that my score was too low after drinking many of these for different reasons...possably a fealing of awe while scribbling on a hopdevil coaster

Pours clear blonde with a modest white head. nose is the usual suspects of West Coast hops and a little sweetness. hops come on fairly strong on the front with good bitterness and some grapefruit. malt is very sweet. finish is better and somewhat sticky.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice clear, gold color with no lacing or head retention. Smells like pine and hops. Tastes very hop forward and finishes less bitter than I thought it would. Good beer, but nothing crazy.

Hop wallop is a cool story and this golden beer is alot of fun. This beer is bold and adventures. Not a late bloomer. Great aroma.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(from notes) - served in pint glass
A - hazy yellow/orange capped with medium eggshell head. Head has modest retention. Ample, fine carbonation.
Aroma of citrus hops and malt. Mild aroma for style and taste.
T - "Hop Wallop"? Yes, but amply tempered with a generous load of caramel malt. Has bitter (lemony grapefruit) hop finish and aftertaste true to style. Pronounced citrus and pine notes to hops.
M - brisk and a bit tingly; medium body;
D - a good sipper, although I notice it is disappearing rather quickly; a good session beer too, but watch out for that 8.5% ABV which is not obvious via aroma or taste.
