6oz bottle. Poured a hazy yellow-orange color with a small white head. Aroma was light orange, grapefruit. Flavor was light lemon peel, some light bready notes. Weak, but refreshing on a 90+ degree day. ClarkVV (6839) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 11, 2015

As one of biggest opponents of Shityard and Alan Pugsley’s evil empire and his ruinous effect of buying out small Maine breweries and centralizing the brewing at Shipyard (and thus ruining the beer), I was loathe to drink this. And to clarify, I’m not suggesting Pugsley is aggressively trying to buy out small breweries (I don’t know if he is or is not), but the fact remains that their yeast and, primarily, backwater, shameful brewing practices produce mostly terrible, horribly diacetyl-ridden beers.
Anyways, it’s too bad Peak voluntarily contracts out of Shipyard. The beer dosent seem so bad; the amarillo are quite well-done, light, lemony, succulent and not overdone. The honey and cracker malts are perhaps a touch too sweet and the malts a little dominant overall. But these are fairly minor details compared to the diacetyl that is rampant. Even from the aroma you know what you’re in for. That this has been going on at this brewery for this long is just shameful. Do the brewers taste these beers?? I’ve got to imagine yes. Guess they just don’t care that much? That lack of care is reflected in their product, of course. Ok rant over. Do the beer world a favor and don’t buy beer brewed at Shipyard (my girlfriend bought this, I would never).
Draught. Slightly cloudy dark orange with small white creamy head, slight vanilla aroma, hoppy taste, high carbonation, abrupt finish. Very drinkable and nice. Jow (4028) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 30, 2015
Tap at a Queens bar as my brother inlaw performed. Hazy light yellow. Nose is grainy and lemon. Tastes of wheat, lemon, grainy, grass, hint of cucumber. Thin watery body. Ok

At a tasting, thanks zvikar, small bubbly, head, hazy yellow color, light aroma of pine, wood and white fruits, flavor of fruit and wood with an herbal hoppiness and a medium bitterness. Nice and easy. DSG (15119) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks zvikar. Hazy yellow with a white head. Nice hoppy aroma with some tropical fruits and flowers. Flavor is quite dry with fruity hops and a fresh bitterish finish. Light to medium-bodied. Refreshing. bavarian81 (157) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 5, 2014
Nothing too out of this world. A floral, grassy aroma with some hops and in the flavor. Pretty crisp and easy to drink. ghawener (1608) - Santa Tecla, EL SALVADOR - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle: surprisingly complex and full-bodied not the typical thin watery summer ale. Very nice hopiness. Food Pairing: Spicy thai food
