3.15/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Nice amber color and pretty decent head retetion, but I deducted some because it just looks thin when you swish it around in the glass.

Smells nice. Nice citrusy hop spark to it.

Something is missing in the flavor though. Dry-hopping comes through in the finish, but malt is significantly lacking. Has kind of a metallic flavor almost.

Mouthfeel is pretty good. Not as thin as I thought it would be.

3.06/5  rDev -1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

A somewhat dated 12 oz bottle from the back fo the refrigerator, wih the review tempered by memory from fresher bottles.
Look: surprisingly good, with a clear, deep amber body covered by a rather creamy looking, bone-colored head.
Aroma: earthy hops are stronger than the malt base
Flavor: again earthy hops over a sweet and light roast malt base but tainted with some metallic tones (attributed largely to age) and hints of corn.
Feel: Medium body with a very good carbonation level.
O: given a fresh bottle, not bad; even roughly average and, therefore, better than expected.

This is from some old beer notes I found while getting ready for a move.

It has a bronze colored body with an orange hue. The tan head was thin and there was not that much lace to speak of. It had a fruity and floral aroma. The taste was very floral with herbal qualities. It was fruity sweet and finished bitter. There were also sweet grain tones as well. Almost medium but I would still say light. I think this was probably the closest beer to the style in the sample pack.
