look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy pale orange body. Small white head. Faint surface wisps, very little lacing, and a thin collar.

Smell - Peachy and oniony hops. A little tropical. Faint grain.

Taste - Less peachy. Less oniony too. More grapefruit. Still some tropical fruits. Cracker malt. Minimal bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Light. Medium carbonation.

Overall - The best of this series so far. The best aroma from the hops.

obviously a quality pale ale here, hops from iowa from what i gather, very cool. this comes in a few leagues below the zeelander, the pseudo sue, and the other real awesome hoppy toppling goliath brews. its pale and hazy in color with a soapy white head with fine retention, but the nose just doesn't have that high alpha fruity pop that their better ones do. it is fresh as they come, zesty and bright, but i miss the uniqueness of whatever this varietal is. the flavor has a citrus note to it, more orange than anything else, but not quite that sweet or acidic. pale malt back it up ably. the hop profile is very good, its just not particularly distinct to me, nothing new or brazen, just a well made pale ale with more of an east coast hopping. i enjoy the creamy feel and kicking carbonation, and the finish too is nice with a ton of hop flavor and minimal bitterness, but this just didn't floor me the way their others have. look forward to trying the others in this series though.

We did the blue, red, green, and yellow xhops side by side last Wednesday.

All these xhops have a similar light straw golden color.

Excellent strong pineapple mixed with citrus smell

Smooth creamy mouthfeel.

Similar taste to smell. Somewhat harsh cloying and minty finish. The worst part. Really sticks with you. The taste does not live up to the smell sadly.

I did a little blending and really like this blended with the yellow.
