Serving Type - Bottle
Appearance - Golden tan/brown with a 1/2 foamy head, and nice lacing.
Smell - Citric hops, pineapple, orange, grapefruit,honey, pine. Some added sugars, pale malts at the finish.
Taste - Palt malts, lager mixed with some piney hops at first sip. Plenty of spices mixed with some yeast adds a nice sweet flavor. The lager aspect adds a bready, earthy note. Has a herbal feel with the spices. No alcohol is present
Mouthfeel - Its medium thickness is surprizing, lots of malts and hops coat the tounge with fruits, and bready notes. Palate gets more hops and malts, with spices and yeasts. Aftertaste is hoppy, malty and a little grainy.
Overall - Pretty good beer. Nice mix of ipa and lager, and it works. Rather flavorful being 5%, and really smooth and drinkable. The balance is nice also, makes this even more enjoyable. Would recommend and drink again.

12oz bottle form the Hop Tour case
02/14/14 – standard pint glass
A: Copper color body with fine clarity and some off-white froth capping the top. Decent retention efforts on this one with a few broken lines of sticky lace left behind on the glass.
S: Smells of fruity hops mostly with some light malt cracker underneath. I get peach and tangerine notes with some grapefruit, pine, and mild ganja. Simcoes are coming out in the nose a bit. Not incredibly potent but a nice hoppy bloom is achieved.
T: Fruity hops of nectarine and grapefruit melds with soft pines and some herbals. Light breadiness from a malty cracker base and a fairly neutral yeast character. Moderate to low end of bitterness with no alcohol to report. A rather decent IPL but nothing of great significance really.
M: Light and creamy feel. A touch thin and watery but with a nice creamy consistency. Finishes rather clean with some light drying.
D: A decent IPL with some enjoyable hop flavors. Would not turn this one down as it was probably my favorite of the Hop Tour but it still leaves a little something more to be desired.
