3.9/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Tried this and the #1 side by side back in August, reviewed from notes, main difference with this one is that it underwent dry hopping, other than that it is very similar, color is a light golden yellow, body is cloudy, 3/4 inch frothy white head, some retention and light lacing at first, aroma is almost identical of the others and consists of wheat, white pepper, hops, earthiness, and grassy accents, only real change is that the hops are more pronounced in the smell, flavor starts off dry with hops and fades into spices almost immediately, middle has a bit of wheat in there but spice stands its ground most of the way through, finish has a good amount of hops and that are quite flowery in this version, floral, spicy, and dry mouthfeel, medium bodied, taste lingers with a crisp dryness, easy to drink considering all the flavors going on, no much alcohol in the flavor at all, look forward to trying this again sometime, recommended

4.13/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: A nice, clear, golden color with a fluffy white head.

S: Nice citrus and floral hops up front as this version was dry hopped and #1 was not. Behind the hops is a nice malty, doughy aroma.

T: Not as much hoppiness as I would have expected from the aroma, but still a decent citrus flavor. A lot of sweet fruitiness coming from this one and a good bit of spice on the finish.

M: Very crisp mouthfeel, excellent carbonation and body.

D: Not my favorite style, but I wanted to give this one a try. It's an interesting beer and I enjoyed it went down very nicely.

On-tap at The Bruery, found my notes on this one,

A: Pours a hazy gold, nice white head, good retention and lace.

S: Solid floral hop components, white pepper, wheat.

T: Very similar to #1 except this one shows more of a breadth of floral hop character. Wheat, spice, some pine/greeness from the hops.

M: Nicely structured body, medium-bodied, smooth.

D: On the initial tasters I enjoyed this one better, but having #1 since then I think I may like it more. They are both good beers, the differences between them are slight, but distinct.
