4.03/5 rDev +16.5%
A: Soft glowing orange color, not quite copper, with a weeee bit of haze. The finger tall head fell quickly but it was bright and white with tiny little bubbles.
S: Sweet vanilla and bread crust nose with a subtle noble hop aroma.
T: A malty sweet start to this beer with a vanilla vibe along with cream and bread. As the beer chugs along down the tounge a noticable hop flavor comes though making an interesting contrast to the start. The finish is sweet just like the begining.
M: Crisp and clean with a dry finish and low carbonation.
O: This is one of my go to summer beers to bring to a cook out or family gathering. Its an easy drinking beer with enough hop flavor and complexity to make it interesting.

3.33/5 rDev -3.8%
Appearance - Medium yellow. Slightly hazy, but appears bubbly. Medium tall white foamy head. Good retention.
Smell - Light pale malt. A little corny. Only faint citrusy hops.
Taste - Watery and corny. Finishes with a mild lemony hops. Refreshing if nothing else.
Mouthfeel - Medium, but crisp.
Overall - Not the most inspiring style in the world. And there's not a whole lot about this beer to get excited about. Though the style doesn't necessarily call for it, I expected a bit more hoppiness with a name like Hop Cream.

3.41/5 rDev -1.4%
A: golden orange, white head, little to no lacing in the pint glass
S: very light on the nose, hops and I smell feint vanilla notes.
T: creamy hoppy, subtle vanilla far in the background, not too much more.
D: very dry finish! I assumed this beer would stick to the inside of my mouth but once it was down it was down. Pretty neat.
O: I don't think I would jump through hoops to try this again, but if it fell in my lap, I'd give it another go! Solid flavor and drinkable.

3.79/5 rDev +9.5%
A - Brilliant orange body that is slightly hazy. Only a thin ring of head yet it still manages to leave a good bit of lacing near the top.
S - Big time hops up front. Very resinous and somewhat herbal. Little to no citrus/fruit to speak of. Maybe a little bit fresh bread in the background.
T - A little more fruity than the nose, but not as much of a hop wallop as the nose would have otherwise indicated. Still some pine flavors persist as well as some mild bread notes.
M - Really smooth and easy to drink. Carbonation mild.
O - A solid representative of an under appreciated style. Will purchase again.
