(12oz bottle) Small white head atop a clear straw body. Aroma is medium sweet, peach, floral. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit/orange, grassy, light peach, floral, pine. Despite all these hop characteristic flavors, this isnt especially bitter -- its bitterness is comparable to a middle-of-the-road West coast APA. Light-medium body, some crispness.

12 oz brown bottle. Date is 07/28/10. It has a really nice appearance, it is a clear gold with a hue of orange with a big foamy white head that sticks for a bit then recedes with some nice lacing. The smell kind of has the reminiscence of urine along with some rotten pineapple. Not the best. The flavor is also not great. It has a hue malt presence, almost like liquid bread. No bitterness, no real hop flavors. Almost a corn flavor. Foul. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-29-2010 05:05:36
