look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: high carbonation, 1 inch head, clear, gold in color

Smell: toasted malt, light wheat, and melon

Taste: big sweet watermelon, some rind, some toasted malt, and sugar

Mouthfeel: sweet with slight bitterness, light body, high carbonation

Overall: If you like the other fruit beers from Shipyard, this one should not disappoint. I find this way better than the pumpkin, but not as good as the apple as the melon here is sweet but not overpowering. If I am going for a watermelon beer, it will still be 21st Ammendment's but this one is a solid beer for a summer's day.

I liked it !!. Color was a gold, no cloudiness. Smells like tart honeydew or watermelon. Taste is very nice with good carbonation. The flavor lingered in my mouth for quite some time. The balance between beer and melon was exceptionally nice. Overall, I think it should be drank very cold because as the beer heats up, the melon flavor becomes a little fake. Overall, a nice balanced beer and great flavor
