3.15/5  rDev -10%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Nothin but foam out of this one... and it takes a long time to settle. Hazy orange color when it does. Lace climbs all the way out the glass when you finally drink it down.
Kinda musty aroma with a slight citrus touch.
Malty somewhat bready flavor. Some fruitiness. More pungent than citrussy hop flavor slight and pleasant bitterness.
Light to medium bodied. WAY overcarbonated = tough to even close your mouth with out it blowing up on you. Somewhat dry finish.
Nothing special here. Quite suprised that this one has any sort of medal. Maybe an overcarbonated batch... but the other dunedin brews suggest the same thing. It might be more enjoyable if I didn't have top wait 10 minutes a pour for an inch and a half of beer in my pint glass.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

First had: on tap at their brewpub

Clear, copper color, bubbly carbonation, topped off with a finger or so of foamy white head; nice retention and lacing. Hops in the nose, leafy, citrusy, bready malt backbone. The flavor reflected the aroma--this was standard stuff--nice balance of sweet bready malts and mildly bittering hops. Medium body, fairly dry. Nothing new and amazing, but solid and drinkable overall.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a massive head that fades quickly.

S: Sweet caramel malts mixed with a spicy hop twang.

T: Malty sweetness up front along with a bite of piney hop bitterness, nicely balanced. Aftertaste fades to a slight honey flavor.

O: Solid brew here. The only thing I didn't like was that the beer was a bit over carbonated, it came spewing out of the bottle when it was opened.

3.08/5  rDev -12%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance- Pours a clear, amber with a dismal head and medium lacing.

Smell - Warm, bready malts and little hops here. Slightly watered down.

Taste - Pretty smooth drink. Flavor is almost nothing. Reminds me of a Yuengling. Not impressed.

Mouthfeel - Really smooth stuff. It's a little creamy after a bit. Carbonation is mild, so that makes this beer really drinkable.

Overall - This beer is okay. I would give it another go. It Has mild flavor and isn't crazy.

2.83/5  rDev -19.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - It pours a drab copper-yellow hue, fairly translucent, with an initially huge head that collapses, leaving ridiculous lace.

S - The aroma is fairly muted; what is there is basically a lemony-citric hop and a small amount of minerality.

T - The taste can be summarized as hop and metal, mild on both accounts. Though I would say this offers something like tinny lemongrass flavors, it is strangely not horrible.

M - The feel is light enough, but not particularly special.

D - I would not seek this out, but it is a decent, inoffensive brew.

No IPAs on tap, but the server said this would satisfy my hops urge.
Served in a pint glass the beer was a hazy orange color. It had a medium-sized white head and lots of lace.
Sweet malt aroma. Citrus and floral hops.
Hops up front, mostly grapefruit but a little bit of piney hops there too. Biscuity background.
Nicely balanced.
Good beer.
