4.31/5 rDev +5.9%
Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a stemmed glass. This is batch #2 - bottled March 2014.
Appearance: Pours a translucent, not-very-hazy amber/gold and leaves a couple fingers of fluffy white head that take a while to fade to some leftover white atop the beer. Carbonation bubbles can be seen floating to the surface.
Smell: Lemon zest, lively hops, slight grassy funk, lime, citrus, hint of crackery malts. Nice, lively, refreshing scent.
Taste: The crackery malts are still here but a little more pronounced, lemon zest, citrus rinds, grassy hops. Huge drinkability with nice, light refreshing flavors. There is just a hint of funk and tartness, but quite mild.
Mouth-feel: Medium to well carbonated with a thin to medium, slightly creamy body. Finishes incredibly smooth.
Overall: Such a refreshing, drinkable beer - for that this is incredibly well done. Nice light hop, malt, and grassy flavors make this one a fantastic summer beer, ironic that it is "Arctic" in the name.

3.1/5 rDev -23.8%
Appearance: Clear light rose color with a decent head; slightly hazy.
Barnyard aroma with some much more inviting fruity aspects. Mild tartness, light funk and mixed fruits dominate the taste.
Feel: Body should be both livelier and a bit fuller.
O: Moderately complex and nicely original.
