This beer is golden yellow .Nose is of alcohol and corn. Lager like. Slightly bitter. One finger thick bleached bone white head.Dry finish.

It's flavor is quite fleeting like the running rabbits on its label. I'm tasting Ice cold pineapple juice with a far off toasted biscuit lingering in the back of the palate.I forget what it tastes like after every sip. A decent offering to the session-able brew style. I feel that this might be required to be best enjoyed outdoors as indoors do not do it justice IMHO

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Look: cloudy light yellow color, frothy white head
Smell: Mostly hops, big floral aroma with citrus and other fruity notes
Taste: Follows nose with sweet pale malts and fruit. A little watery and flat
Feel: Good carbonation, light to medium body

It's okay. I like the idea of a dry-hopped cream ale but a lot of the flavors seem underdeveloped.

Hoppy cream ale. Nice fragrant hop aroma. Biggest complaint is the bitter aftertaste. Not sure how much I like the experience of a hoppy cream ale. Good beer but not something I would need to have again.

I'm generally not a Black Rock's fan however this is one of the few beers I do like from them. It's a good summer beer and doesn't try too hard to reinvent the wheel - which I find to be the main reason I'm not a big fan of their other beers.

Poured from a 12oz. can into a tulip glass. No canning date but I know it's reasonably fresh.

L- Hazy yellow, two finger white head.

S- Decent hop aroma for a cream ale, citrus, some floral, a slight touch of that Juicy Fruit hop thing.

T- Light cracker grain with some light citrus, floral, and a light bitterness.

F- Light but not watery, good carbonation.

O- A great day drinking beer with a decent hop aroma to enjoy between glugs.
