I am drinking this a month before its best by date.
A: Pours brilliant copper gold and produces a 1” off-white foam collar that hugs the glass leaving ribbons of lace.
S: Citrus, melon, pine, herbal, light fruit, biscuit
T: Starts by filling the mouth up with cream carrying fruity hop flavors quickly dissolving into rich light malt and yeast driven citrus and then by the middle melon, citrus and lime from the hops carry the beer to the finish. The beer is more about the hop flavors than bitterness but does finish with a lingering citrus rind bitterness. The interaction of fruit flavors combined with the bitterness hint at chardonnay.
M: A creamy medium bodied beer with smooth, soft carbonation.
O: this is a big, fruity beer that must be consumed fresh. The bottle has a best by date. Look at it. If the bottle is out of date, put it back on the shelf.

I have to say I was really looking forward to trying this as I have seen the reviews and they are quite impressive.

L-pours an amber color with a decent head that quickly turns to...nothing.

S-HARD pressed to smell anything...ut oh...this is concerning.

T-??? Where is the fruity hop goodness everyone talks about? Really trying to like this but failing to do so.

F-one of the better attributes of this beer. Carbonation is nice and smooth.

O-I have to say, I just don't get it. Hard to find any hop smell or taste. Bad bottle? Not sure but I have 5 more bottles to finish and I am not that eager to dive into them. A decent beer but SO MANY better options. I would take NWPA or Chasin Freshies anyday over this.
