3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I would have again. Color was nice. Aroma was decent for an IPA. But I’m not sure this is really an IPA. Lacing was good. Beer was relatively fresh. Tasted this on draft.
Pours gold with a medium white head. Aroma is citrusy with some light tropical fruits. Taste is light tropical fruits (mainly mango) with a little hoppy resin showing up in the mid palate. Finish is very pilsener-like with light bitterness. Would make a good session beer. cubs (10636) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Tap @ Angels Trumpet Phoenix. Pours a fairly clear, golden appearance with a white head. Tropical fruity, pineapple, mango, spicy hoppy, sweet aroma. Soft mouthfeel. A bit resiny, spicy, mango, citrusy hoppy flavor. Refreshing and nice to drink. HughConway (831) - Washington, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Tap. Golden, white head nicely laced. Straw and metallic aroma, taste, bit harsh. Not nearly as nice as many. SudsMcDuff (8429) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - AUG 22, 2011

On tap. Pours with a clear golden body with a lasting white head. Aromas are fruity, grainy, estery, tea, malty and a bit husky. Flavors are metallic, bitter, oppressive. Grainy, minimal hop flavors but tons of bitterness. Dry. Lively bubbles. Very dry actually. A bit astringent. Not very enjoyable. chibuck (3513) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2011
Draft at the taproom... Clear medium starw, ugly! Off white head, good lace... Very hebal nose, lemony, floral, average saison... Taste is a saison, ipa mix, boring Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 10, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Yay!!! Nose light high sugar sweet and high hops. Gold amber with sticky white head and lace. Taste sweet and sharp hops. Slight bite but mostly high sweet. Bit of lemon and pine. Great summer ipa but not special otherwise. thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 25, 2011
(draught) hazy amber/copper with lasting creamy tan head. Nose of caramel, orange pulp, citrus zest, and a bit bready. Taste of liquid bread, orange zest finish, medium bitterness that’s well balanced, and a touch of caramel. Light carbonation and moderately dry finish. Tasty and easy to drink. pushkinwow (2793) - Ottawa, CANADA - JUL 19, 2011
Sampled at tasting room. light amber/yellow with white head. Pot, sugar, wheat, caramel. Sweet with hop ending, carbonation seems off, little thin. Ok.
