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.

Finally a good beer in this variety pack! It has a nice lager taste.

A-Pours a nice copperish color which is a little cloudy. Nice foamy head.

S-Nice lager smell that gets the mouth ready for a tasty beer.

T-I was surprised by how good this beer actually tastes. It has a nice lager feel to it.

M-The mouthfeel is pretty decent and it has a nice body that feels smooth in the mouth.

O-This would be a beer I would purchase again and has a nice cold dry lager flavor.
