3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Purchased from the Whole Foods Market Galleria in Brentwood. 12oz bottle. Pours filtered with a dark golden hue. Two fingers of billowing white head. Aromas of soggy malts and trace citrus candy hops with a bit of grapefruit and pine. Medium bodied with a mild malt backbone. There’s a bitterness to the palate, but I cannot discern whether it’s from the hops of the tingling effervescence. The hops are there, but they meld almost too well into the palate. The finish is dry with a grassy, piney hop flavor. Not terrible, but a little thin, even considering the decent abv. But it has a great price tag and since the palate’s not too overt, it should be a crowd pleaser! Decent stuff.
Can sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Tom C. Pours orange with a nice head, aroma of hops, orange, vanilla and some funkiness, flavor is bitter with alcohol, lemon and tangerine, medium bodied. tomer (3743) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - OCT 20, 2014
At a tasting, thanks Tom C., smallish head quite clear orange colour with just a touch of haze, fruity woody aroma with a hint of tobbaco, flavour of orange marmalade, with some maltiness in the back and a light herbal bitterness. Drinkable but mediocre. DSG (15237) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 13, 2014
Can sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Tom C. hazy golden-orange with an off-white head. Aroma of stale hops and some graininess. Flavor has some sweetish malt, a bit grainy, mild stale hops and very light bitterness. Medium-bodied. DocLock (11049) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods Plymouth. Pours hazy dark straw, a pretty intense golden color, with frothy white head that laces well, and a lot of carbonation. Nose is heavy hops, citrus, pale malt, black peppery spice. Tastes resiny, hoppy, with notes of pale malt, grains, spice, florals, and a bitter, somewhat astringent finish. slowrunner77 (12844) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 24, 2014
"spicy and bitter hoppy, but lacking in both floral and citrus notes. didnt hate anythinh about this brew, but i’m not a huge fan either. average in just about every way."

Cream soda tan pour, quick head. Nose is indistinct grain and light hops. slightly bitter. Middle is sweet and somewhat medicinal. Finish is bitter and unbalanced. Meh. Kevin (2201) - Montana, USA - JUL 21, 2014
quite easily the worst beer i’ve had in years. over carbed so it took for fucking ever to pour and settle. this meant i hand to spend even more time than should be legally allowed having to smell this abomination. dry cardboard and sadness are the best way to describe. tastes like dust, with a bit contempt rolled in. a beer to give to someone to let them know, that yes it can get worse, and your mother doesn’t really love you. beerbill (3618) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAY 10, 2014
16 oz. can from Whole Foods in Lake Grove, NY. Pours a crystal clear gold with a large white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of malt, caramel and some subdued piney hops. The flavor is more restrained than the aroma with malt and caramel followed by some citrus pith hops bitterness that is lacking in flavor. Medium bodied. milewide (2315) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Earthy hop aroma and taste, but muted. Clear amber color. Not outstanding but decent for $5.99 for a four pack of 16 ounce cans. rumproasts (6035) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 28, 2014
can. Deep golden with small head. Bland caramel malt body with bland hops. This is a very subpar IPA. At least the can looked nice.
