Bottle from scotchzi at Proof. Pours an amber/caramel color with almost no head and very thin collar. Aroma is mostly medium malt sweetness. Taste has some slight tropical hop notes; otherwise, just the medium maltiness. Medium body and light carbonation.

On tap at House of Brews. Served in a pint glass.

Appearance - Deep copper. Big white head. Retains very well.

Smell - Caramel malt. Smells very sweet. Slight grapefruit hop aroma.

Taste - Pine hop. Super sweet. Caramel and some toasted malt. Slight fruit to the finish. Low bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Heavy. Says it's only 7%, but feels heavier.

Overall - Tough to finish. Disappointing.

On tap at the brewery tasting room, 3 October 2013.

Pours reddish amber, clear.

Smell is fainty, malty and a bit zippy.

Taste is zip-zingy, mildly bitter, and a lot grainy.

Feel is excellent. Medium-bodied, vibrant carbonation.

A decent fresh hop beer, much more spicy than juicy, and could showcase the hops more, especially in the smell.
