Ok its about time i rated this wonder! 12oz single bought from "Lifesource" in Salem. $2.19 Its an attractive pour..orange clear with a lovely half inch off white frothy head. Aroma is very hop forward,green onion,lemon zest and resin...some buried nuttiness from the malts. Taste is similar to nose but without the onion..spicy,hoppy,resin and grapefruit again malts an after thought. Mouth feel is certainly OK..rather flabby finish though. OK beer but not living up to the hype IMO.
