3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at blue monk. Pours hazy golden hue capped by a soapy white head. Nose of floral hops and light caramel. Taste features moderate bitterness, with decent flower hop flavor upfront that melts away to faint cracker and very light caramel. Moderate body, this was good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2016 Craft NY Brewers Festival at The Desmond in Albany. Pours a hazed gold with a medium sized white head. Citrus on the nose, soft cracker and grain, a touch of malt. Nice citrus throughout and quite easy drinking. Picks up a bit of a black pepper saison note from the yeast as it goes into the finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[6722-20140909] Growler. Fruity citrus hops and grains aroma. Slightly hazy, orange brown body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head and some lacing. Wet grains and bold citrusy hops flavour. Medium body is fairly bitter. Tasty but not always a fan of that greeny hops characteristic. (8/4/7/4/15) 3.8

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2014-09-09. Hazy yellow body, modest foamy white head. 3+ aroma has an odd underlying vegetation character presumably from the wet hops. Grassy notes. Flavour is pleasantly bitter throughout, floral notes, hoppy vegetation from the wet hops is distracting from the core IMHO. Average palate soft carb. Decent but I prefer the regular version.

I love this beer. The perfect hops for me. Purchased a 64 oz growler last week at the brewery and I couldn’t enjoy it more.

Where and how: tap @ brewery
Aroma nice, fresh clean grassy hops , herbal backing. Neat nice hoppy feel.
Top: large cap, good lace with rings on glass.
Base: hazy gold.
Palate : medium bodied, soft consistency. Easy going with long friendly finish..
Taste: mellow but not bland. Very friendly set up of hops, little harshness. Solid textures that goes well as session bitter ale.
Other notes one of better brews from CBW

Growler fill from the brewery on Friday. This is their Frank pale ale wet-hopped with local Centennial hops. Poured a very murky golden yellow, not a ton of carbonation but very hazy. Did not have quite as much of the hop bite that Frank has, but the new hops added a certain measure of grass/earth notes, I thought. Slightly sweeter than regular Frank, but went down just as easy. A nice variation from Frank.
