3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Sean. Thanks. Pours out a dark orange color with a tan head on it. Smell is full of orange peel and a nice hop smell. Smells kinda like hopslam light. Taste is fruity and very citrusy. Moderate carbonation makes it very drinkable. Smooth, and this really compares to two hearted in my mind. Good stuff, too bad they are limited to 6% because I think they could really brew some outstanding stuff.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2011 Pours hazy amber with a nice beige head. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, honey, and other sweet citrus fruits. Taste is sweet citrus hop with a great hop bite finish. Excellent because the aroma lead me to believe it would be sweeter than bitter but it’s not, also has enough malt backbone to support the bitterness 8 4 8 4 14..... Had on tap as 50 at the brewery. Clear gold, beautiful head retention. Aroma is insanely crisp and fresh, lots of tangerine, orange, pineapple, mango. Taste has more bitterness than the sweet aroma would lead me to believe, quite PNW in taste. Truly a marvelous beer. I want to have massive quantities of this as fresh as possible at all times at my house. 9 4 9 4 18
