Thirteenth rating of this beer. I missed the draft version, but Chris from Georgetown bought a bottle to share - thank you sir! Cloudy variegated yellowish orange color. Aroma of pine, orange peel, coriander. Taste is rising bread dough and light spice. Fantastic. jtclockwork (17071) - , New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Bottle. Pours cloudy gold. White head. Nose/taste of citra, tropical fruits, banana, citrus and clove. Finishes with a strong sorachi ace hop bite. Medium body. brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 16, 2011
A: The pour is a hazed golden orange color with a white head.
S: Some very floral hops. Fairly herbal too with a lot of citrus (orange) peel. There’s a bit of grass and wheat, but a strong plastic aroma, unfortunately.
T: A harsh bitterness and plastic flavor that sort of ruins the whole beer. There is some good citrus and citrus peel flavor and the floral hop qualities are nice. Piney hops provide some more bitterness.
M: Medium in body with medium carbonation.
O: There are some decent flavors, but that plastic was just too much to look past. bhensonb (15612) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 1, 2011
