(12oz bottle) Pours a cloudy yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of weed, grass, mustiness, pineapple, and citrus. Flavor of dank, grass, pineapple, pine, citrus, and caramel. deyholla (11705) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Bottle shared by Sean, thanks! Pours a slightly hazy yellowish gold with a soapy white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of lemon, mango and ripe banana with backing sweet grains and honey. Flavor is similar with ripe banana and mango with honey and sweet grains. Quite unique.

Bottled. Poured cloudy medium golden with a short, spotty whitish head. The aroma picked up dank peach and perfumey hops over honey and lesser bready notes.. this really caught me off guard, but it grew on me..very, very, very green. The flavor was along those same lines.. lots of dank, green hoppage over honey and lesser bready malts.. this time some blended citrus joined the mix, along with a bit of weed.. tacky sugars (mostly honey), peaches, and catty notes on the finish. Medium-bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. not overly bitter, but very fresh.. interesting stuff. mar (5423) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Light gold pour with a white head. Nose is peach, hops, tropical fruits, and light grass. Great palate, honey, peach, fresh hops, and a sweet finish.

12oz bottle thanks to orangesol. Cloudy pale golden/straw in color with a small white head. The aroma is not as big as I’d like it to be, but nice regardless. Grassy and citrusy hops, light fruits, and not much in the way of malt. The flavor also leaves a bit to be desired. Pale malt, grass, grapefruit, white grape, and an unusual cucumber vodka note with a bit of booze. Average-plus bitterness. Medium-bodied and just a tad boozy for the ABV. Not so impressed with Troegs on this one. Decent but not up to their standard. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Bottle shared at a small RB/BA tasting... Poured pale, golden with a white head and nice lacing. Really balanced with moderate bitterness. Some danny hop tones, citrus and pine with candied malts for balance and a light tea leaf sweetness. Really nice. reggiedunlop (3725) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2011
pours a clear yellow/honey color with a medium white head...decent lacing. aroma has some light maltiness and mild notes of peach and honeydew...slightly reminiscent of the smell of a pumpkin while carving it. flavor is definitely peachy and the honey is notable but not overly sweet or sticky...very fruity and refreshing while still maintaining some bitter dryness. mouthfeel is light and lively and the finish is citrusy with a hint of spice dry and...lingering.

12 oz bottle. Cloudy yellow brown with a lacy white head. Nose is vanilla pudding, roses, white pepper and lemon. Thick and chalky but nicely countered by a citrus tang and prickly carb. Taste is lemon pith, peel and peach. Bitter doughy finish with quinine. An odd one. Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Super fresh 12oz. bottle. Labeled as Scratch 49 - Wet Hop Ale. The body is a cloudy, dusky, golden-orange amber color with a small head of smooth, cream tinted foam. The head quickly settles to a thin film with a solid ring at the edge, leaving semi-hard, rounded flares of lacing on the glass. Aromas are very fruity and citrus driven, suggesting of orange creamsicle, sweet pineapple, peaches, and even some pear. It’s not dank or grassy at all, like many fresh hop brews are. There is a really fresh, Juicyfruit-like, tropical quality to the nose. Clean wheaty malt and wisps of honey provide a subtle backdrop so the fruit can shine. Flavors are well balanced, again centered on citrus hops, with dried pineapple and sweet tangelo most prominent. Malt suggests of honey glazed light wheat bread. It’s pretty yeasty too, for a pale ale. Sweet bread dough runs throughout. The mouthfeel is a bit under carbonated, making the body seem a bit heftier than it probably is. Still, it’s entirely drinkable and sufficiently dry. Overall, I found this to be a really unique, interesting brew. I rarely like beers with honey in them, but this one is an exception.
