Aroma is floral, slight grainy sweetness and mild spices. The flavor is citrus, mild tea, malts, fruit, hops and a lightly bitter/sweetish/hint of heat finish.

Appearance: Cloudy golden with a thin head of white suds. Little to no lace.

Aroma: Floral hops — pleasant and mildly fruity.

Taste: A little orange, tangerine, with some sweetness from the 2-row malted barley. Mildly bitter finish. A tasty and enjoyable golden ale here.

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Good retention and great lacing. Smells of slight piney hops, slight spicy hops, sweet malt, yeast, and a hint of floral hops. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, slight piney hops, citrus hops, slight floral hops, hint of yeast, and a hint of grass. Overall, good appearance and body, with a decent blend and feel.

Sweet to be in the first 10 reviews of this single hop series (which I love). The hop series being one of the best tastes of my first 3 years on BA.

A: Light gold, hazed in appearance with only an inch of tight, off white head, and not much lasting or lacing.
S: The aroma is all fruit: ripe pineapple with apricot, apple cider, and pear.
T: The taste follows aroma with the fruity pineapple, pear, and apple sauce notes combining with bready background and floral, flower shop hops.
F: The mouth is sticky, apple saucy and gritty.

Complex, fresh, original. Try 6.

Light gold in appearance with a light haze in the body. There's and inch of tightly packed off white head resting on top. Moderate lacing. The aroma is of overripe pineapple along with apricot and pear. The taste is fairly different than the aroma with the fruity pineapple, pear, and apricot notes being much more subdued along with a lightly vegetal finish. The mouth is faintly sticky and a touch gritty.

Beautiful blonde color, with a medium head, that holds nicely. Great lacing. Floral smells, with bold hoppy flavor. There's some spice notes that work well with the smell too. Try it out for sure. You will not regret it.

Hazy yellow, creamy white head
Chardonnay, weed, floral, grassy

Creamy medium body

I enjoyed this because hops of noble variety are my favorite.

On tap at Cloverleaf Tavern. An interesting hop varietal. Very well described in the flavor profile sheet provided by the tavern. Slight lemon zest with pine nuances dominate the nose and palate. Worth a try.

Pours a foggy, matte wheat with a centimeter white head. While the head is pleasant and foamy, it does not retain too well. There is a good ring of lacing left behind, but only one. Aroma is hop forward with a mix of spicy and floral hop notes. Really pleasant and edible aroma. The flavor profile is spicy with a driving floral hop note. Malt notes center on biscuit, and support the hops quite well. Mouth feel is a medium consistency, with a velvety, slightly abrasive texture. Overall, it's a fun and exciting brew. The brewer's notes, flavor check marks, and origin are quite nice additions to the bottle to help differentiate between different hops. Very well done.

Served in a 12oz snifter.

12oz bottle. Poured out a clear, golden color with a small, white head of bubbly foam. It smelled very grassy and floral with toasted caramel. Grassy hop bitterness with a sweet toasted caramel backbone.
