Pours clear golden-amber with a 1-finger white head. Mild aroma, but a bit...odd. Maybe tropical fruit and corn. Body is a bit lighter than medium with a touch of oil. Brief, dry finish. Mild hoppy flavor, with notes of tropical and citrus fruit over a grain note that reminds me of corn.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Light fruity and floral hops, faint bitterness, and relatively low sweetness. A bit bland, but otherwise enjoyable and drinkable.

Had this at brewery and I loved it. Took home a growler that was great. Bought 6 pack in store and it was just not the same. Thought maybe it was a fluke so bought another 6 pack a few months later and it was the same. I like to support local breweries but something has gone wrong here. Also 6 pack cost is just too much. Paid $11.99.

Aroma of floral and citrus hops. Appearance is golden and cloudy with a white head with poor head retention. Citrus, floral and spicy hop flavor. A light struck flavor is noticeable. Malt flavor is light. Mouthfeel is medium and astringent. Carbonation is medium. Overall, there are process issues with this beer. Hopefully they will be fixed on in the future. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The worst beer I have had this summer hands down. I have nothing good to say about this beer at all. To sweet and the flavor was just completely wrong. Not sure if it is a storage, sanitation or brewing issue but the result is just horrible ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

EithCubes (5649) - New Jersey, USA - APR 6, 2014
My bottle 6.0% abv. Floral/citrus and very sweet aromatics with an unfortunate airy and meaty quality, not ruling out infection, but could just be an excitable yeast. Bright and classic golden pour with tons of carbonation, far too much, with a dense and frothy off-white head. Taste is very sweet and lightly soured. Malt is sunny, hops are oily and lightly fruity, low bitterness relative to the other flavors. Medium body, perhaps a dash lighter. Need to work out the sanitation issues.

dmac (5728) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Bottle shared by jcwatts at his casa. Porued a fuller orange body with a foamy white head. Aroma was sweet, lots of malts here for a pale ale. Notes of dough, paste, grains and some plastic. Medium bodied with softer carbonation. Flavor of dough, rainsin bran flakes, and some old sweet raisins. This is a pale ale. awfully sweet in my eyes.
