3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler from BigZ Beverage. Pours a clear golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of sweaty and grassy hops, bready malt, garlicky hops. Flavor of apricot and light fruits with a garlicky and grassy hop finish. Also some apricot sweetness in the finish. Tasty stuff and at 4.3%, could drink it all day!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear peach-gold with a thin eggshell head that has good retention. Aroma is big on citrus, some pine, tropical fruit, some dusty malt and floral notes. Flavor is light and playful on all notes, citrus, a touch of pine and tropical fruit, toasty malt and a light spiciness to the finish. Palate is light bodied, has a medium, nicely fervent carbonation and neutral feel all the way to an off dry, minerally finish. I really thoroughly enjoyed sucking down five out of a sixer of this stuff over the course of a long afternoon of barbequing. Great summer quencher, plenty of hop presence though without heft or intensity and a nice crisp, clean feel on the palate. Definitely better when pretty cold.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden color with a medium sized white head that fades fairly quickly into a mild film on top of the beer. The aroma is citrus fruit and chardonnay right up front, the citrus becomes more pronounced but the grapiness of the beer is huge right after the glass is poured. The beer has a sweet floral bouquet in the background, this is a very nice smelling beer. The flavor is very nicely hoppy with some spicy notes and more of that dry white wine character. The "wininess" of this is not so much a deep or earthy wineiness but rather a crisp, clean, sharp, and dry character like a nice chardonnay or a subtle Vhino Verde. The maltiness is very subtle and this is a very hop forward beer, but there is some soft earthy maltiness that lingers a bit and leaves a very good impression. Iím again a little taken a back by a brewery I had written off. Either they are stepping up their game or they just started sending good beer to Iowa.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden yellow, with a fading white head. Beautifully citric aroma, not unlike a typical American Pale ale. A little citrus rind, with a firm cereal grain malt note. Like, lots of bran cereal malt. But with some american hops!? Nice aroma, is what Iím getting at. Taste is a little simple, just some citrus (a little more lemon than orange) notes with some pale malt graininess. Malts actually steal the show, especially at middle and end. Nice summer brew, if a little simplistic. But thats what summer brews are supposed to be, right?

A beer that I wish had been available in Gainesville when it was fresher, because thereís a lot to like even at 3 months. Nice crisp and clean malt profile, guessing some wheat in the bill, and a bit of tangy citrus hops remain even after 3 months on the shelf. Probably a very flavorful beer on release, I would not mind seeing this again next year.

On tap. I was prepared not to like this but a friend told me it was good. After a disappointing firkin tapping experience I decided to try one of these and stuck with them the rest of the night. Easy drinking, perfect amount of carbonation for the nice citrus flavor. Bright, light but crisp bitterness. Well done.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden color, wispy undense head. Smell has quite a bit of funk to it. Hops, mixed in with honey. Taste is quite a lot like their drifter pale ale. Light and crisp. Nice showcase of the citra hops. This beer doesnít need anything else. The citra provide everything necessary. What else do you want in a summer brew. Ok, well, Iíd like it in cans but other than that, well done. Enjoyability 3.5/5

Bottle marked "APR 26, 11." Pours clear pale orange with a 2-finger frothy beige head. Aromas of citrusy hops and tropical fruit, peach, and some dough and sugar; a pretty IPA-like aroma. The flavor is peach, pine, and citrus peel, all light and balanced with dough and caramel malt. Medium carbonation, smooth, and a bit thin. Not bad, a pretty good summer drink.

Bottle shared by Mike while fishing. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. I really liked the nose; sweet biscuit and lots of oranges, marmalade. A very smooth flavor, some citrus, no bitterness, bready, very smooth. A great Summer quaffable brew.

Weak tea nose. Clear amber, medium head. Relatively rich light barley malt flavor. Light hay. Better than a macro, but really quite mediochre.
