3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Jensen Beach. Pours an unclear yellow-orange with a small white head. Aroma has pine and citrus. Somewhat herbal Taste is of a lot of piney sweetness with a strong bitter grapefruit presence with a solid underlying malt base. Somewhat sticky and while it starts thin and bit blah, the bitter tastiness grows on you throughout the glass. Nice one!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours golden orange with a small off white head. The nose is tropical fruit, light citrus, not much else going on. The taste is like a pilsner. Low bitter and almost no sweetness. Rather dull. The mouthfeel is crisp and clean, the body is light and finish is medium.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from Warehouse Liquors in Spring Hill. I want to believe that this one should be great, but someone just messed up. I bought the six pack two days after delivery from the distributor. Pours a mostly clear yellow with a white head. Nose is some nice grapefruit with hints of pine and citrus pith. Flavor is a small burst of dry citrus followed by a heavy metallic twinge and a dry as a bone finish. I was very hopeful going in, but this light-bodied dry-finisher did not live up to my expectations.
