A - This beer has a clear golden body with a 3/4 inch tight white head. Small patches of lacing.
S - Grassy hops with notes of straw, oranges, honey, floral spice on top of a sweet malt base.
T - Starts off with a green grassy bitterness that turns to candy grapefruit sweetness. A prevalent malt backbone adds character that blends and balances all the green together. There’s some tartness towards the end that adds good dimension. Finishes dry and spicy.
M - Light to medium body average carbonation.
One of the best I’ve had of this style. Love the hop profile and the malt is actually what makes this a winner. The burps taste like leafy green hops. Top of the line.

Where did this beer come from? I tried it at an Oktoberfest tasting and expected something very different., anticipating an incorrect labeling. The label is correct and this is a pretty solid golden. Dry, with some light citrus sweetness and spices. Golden appearance. kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 13, 2012
The head is ok, the nody dark brown. It smells hoppy and a bit grassy. The taste is very hoppy, bitter-aromatic, malty, a bit grassy-dry. Nice one! 11/12/12/12/11/12 Jethro6191 (508) - Indiana, USA - OCT 18, 2012

Draft from Green Leafe Newtown. Pours coppery dark straw with off-white head. Nose was marzeny malt, substantial hops, mild earthy nutty notes. Tasted malty, marzeny, with a big hop flavor and a complex finish.

Draft at quaker steak. Pours brown with a thin head. Not much on the nose. A bit of malt and hop astringency on the tongue. Clean finish. Eh! HighWine (991) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Tap in a New Belgium chalice. Chocolate brown color with a thin white head. Green coffee bean aroma. Taste is roasty and slightly sweet caramel malt with a big citrus hop presence. Lemon and like perfume fill the mouth. Medium mouthfeel, slightly creamy. This isn't a golden but they've got it labeled as Hoptober and it's surprisingly good.
