This pours a hazy golden yellow color with a slight, off-white head. The aroma is filled with hops but fairly mild ones, not quite to the extent of an IPA. The taste is weaker and thinner than I expected. There is a decent bitterness to the beer that delivers flavor without being overly crisp. It’s fairly average and could use some work.

Pours a golden orange color with firm cap of white froth, good lacing. Notes of dried grain, floral and grassy hops appear before a firm sweetness shines through. Taste is grainy and grassy, lightly floral and sugary sweet, moderate fruitiness, faint earthy spice. Medium bodied, some heft and graininess for a pale ale. Solid beer, unique composition.

A friend left this brew at my casa after the SuperBowl...

Golden, nice clarity, lacing is nice, head is foamy white.

Very light aroma, not too much going..

Light, thin, bready, medium carbonation, crisp, missing many key flavors. Refreshing and nice, but not right for the style. Too relaxed. Bitterness is extremely mild. Recommended only for HOT days..
