Cloudy golden body on the pour into my pint. Nice frothy white head. Decent lacing.
Smells quite hoppy, with some sweet bready malts. Citrus, pear.
Nice enough flavor. The hops come through on the puckering side, with light citrus fruity and earthy bitterness dominating.
Medium carbonation, creamy smooth, drying, slightly astringent.
Overall a very nice beer.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a pint glass. From notes. Reviewed 21 September 2013.

A: Good head. Clear, with suspended particulates. Golden.

S: Piney hops. Surprisingly fresh and delicious.

T: Tasty! Lemon peel. Strong, astringent citrus. Herbal finish. Clean aftertaste. Brief main taste.

M: A bit lackluster, the main feel coming from hops.

O: An enjoyable, recommendable beer.

12 ounce can poured into glass a nice clouded golden yellow with good head, smell of hops very prounounced , a little citrus fruity smell. I dont like Blonde beers normally and I dont care for the regular Firemans 4 version but this hopped up version is awesome ! Hope they decide to make it a regular offering. This and their stellar Lost Gold IPA are my favorites from Real Ale, the Rye Pale Ale aint bad either.
