4.36/5 rDev +23.5%
Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Light copper/gold in color,with a decent cap of white foam.
Aroma-Subtle citus hops, tropical fruit notes
Taste-Fruity citrus hops, soft pineapple note, underlying citrus rind. Well-balanced, smooth, fresh and tasty. Fish tacos would fit the bill nicely.

A - Poured out a clear, golden color with a one-finger, white head of bubbly foam. It left thin sheets of lace on the glass.
S - It smelled sweet with tropical fruit aromas.
T - It tasted of sweet caramel with a touch of spice and some tropical fruit flavors.
M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale with a dry finish.
O - This is a very tasty golden ale. Bright and refreshing.

12oz brown bottle with a freshness date stamped on it right on the bottom of the front label. The only thing I don't know is whether that's a born on date or an expiration date.
The beer poured a clear champaign color, sort of like gingerale gold. The half finger of white head dissipated quickly and there wasn't much lacing.
The beer has both a pleasantr hoppy smell as well as an unpleasant barnyard smell.
Well, well,well - what do we have here? A hop dominated blonde ale. Slightly bitter grapefriut/lemon flavor tempered with a kiss of sweet honey.
Light bodied with medium high carbonation.
It's alright, but I like my blonde ales to be fruitier and maltier.

A - Golden, small white head. Clear but with a tiny bit of haze.
S - Sweet grain and lemon.
T - Big hop taste. Dragonfruit or mango. Interesting hop flavor that I can't put my finger on. It is a welcome hop aggressiveness that I was not expecting.
M - Somewhat thin as expected for the stye. Medium carbonation.
O - Wow, now this could be very refreshing on a hot day but you still get some hop flavor. I would like to buy this in 6 packs if available in OH.
