Poured from a 22 oz brown bomber into a clear glass mug. No clear freshness date. Purchased by my brother Greg at a Minneapolis-area bottle shop. Reviewed from notes.
A: Dark copper-red with 1-2 fingers of pretty rocky, off-white head with good retention and ample lacing.
S: Decent aroma with grapefruit and honeysuckle combining with some lemon and floral notes. The maltiness doesn't have a lot of character in the aroma. There is a "homebrew" tanginess to the aroma.
T: The tanginess follows through to the flavor as well. The beer is not well enough attenuated and leaves too many sweet malt sugars which give this beer a tangy, light lemonade flavor with much more bitterness. I think this beer would be a lot better with less bitterness, namely less early- and mid-boil hop additions and more late-boil hop additions to increase the hop flavor without the big bitterness. There is also a midl vegetal flavor that would also improve with less early hopping. THe maltiness is mildly crackery but is not interesting enough to carry the big bitterness.
M: Average carbonation with medium-light medium body and not enough dryness.
O: Not a good or great example of the style, merely middle of the road. Has some attenuation problems and drinks like an average homebrew not a refined craft beer.

22oz bomber into mason jar
Look is clear amber-orange with a nonexistent head. Smell is warm malt, apples, oranges, grassy hops. Taste is malty/bready and wooden, yet bitter with slightly spicy hops. Good balance between the hop and malt, meaning they play well off each other.
Not a fan of this one. Neither the malt nor the hops were especially tasty(too fruity/estery, and too medicinally bitter and earthy). Still, I can see how this may appeal to some.
