Bottle from Tosa wine. Pour a golden orange very pale with a white foamy head leaving some lacing. Aroma has pine and lemony citrus with flowery hops, somewhat light and subtle Taste is of sweet hops, lemons, pine with a nice caramel base. Light to medium bodied and slightly sticky. Finishes sweetly hoppy without a lot of length. Not sure what style this should be. Have had similar IPA’s to this. A tasty beverage ... whatever style it really is.

Bottle from Appalachian vintner. Pours golden with an inch of white foam. There’s a nice amount of lacing in the glass. A bit of citrus on the nose. Lots of grass notes on the tongue with a bit of citrus as well. Nice example of style.

Clear golden with a thin foamy head. Nose is floral and herbal with nice perfumey hop tones. Flavor is biscuity and malty but with a huge herbal and leafy hop flavor and bitterness. Ends with toffee and herbal hops.

Sammer (1119) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Bottle. Taste is flowers, mild hops, grain and malt. A bit more hops would do this one well, but otherwise a decent offering.

A straight forward but hoppy brew that’s really good. Aroma is slightly less that you might think, but the hops are there. The flavor has a rustic sweet that is really complemented by the hops that are citrusy. The finish is smooth and faintly bitter and the mouth feel is medium. This brew is certainly for the hop enthusiast...

From a bomber. Pours clear light gold. Tastes like creamy hops, mils grapefruit and pine. Very easy to drink. Light hop and malt smell. Low/medium body and carbonation.

sonnycheeba (6214) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear gold with creamy, white head. Aroma is biscuit and cereal malts, light toast, rye, grassy and citrus hops, and light floral notes. Flavor is smooth malt flavor with good supporting grassy hop notes and light citrus fruit esters; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

The name is a perfect description of this beer. On the nose and on the palate, biting pine and apricot hops. A little earthy. Then a caramel sweetness from the malts. Two aggressive profiles in balance, if not harmony. A worthwhile experiment.
