Bottled August 20th 2013.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Samuel Adams nonick.

a: Clear dark gold with an inch and a half slightly offwhite head which receded to dense even surface foam and patchy lacing.

s: Mild fruit cup.

t; A pleasant mild fruit note over a light to moderate sweet malt base. Some hop bitterness balances the malt well.

m: Moderate, good body.

o: A very nice dinner or session ale, more fruity than sweet malty, with a mildly bitter finish. Would likely be quite refreshing in warm weather.

poured a nice pale copper orangish hue with a nice white head that receedes leaving descent lacing.

Very nice hop forward nose that has a hint of quality grain backing it up. Floral citrus grapefruit piney resiny goodness that never overpowers.

Again with the nice slow hop domination that never overpowers a sweet graininess that is dry on the finish with above mentioned hop flavs - floral citrus grapefruity piney resin. Nice and smooth, not over the top at all.

Crisp hoppy dry goodness.

Quality brew from a big boy who rarely disappoints.

Good head that settles to a lasting layer of fine bubbles. Great blanketing lace. Dark gold color and clear.

Creamy grape-like aroma. Slightly sweet with a yeasty background.

Thin bodied and the flavor leans to the weak side. The malt is dry and like cardboard. The hop is light and certainly not enough to bring back the flavor. Low carbonation. Sadly, this is a miss.
