Fresh, sticky hop aroma. Crisp bite that’s full flavor of hops, mild caramel malt sweetness, and a touch of yeast. The yeast then comes in with a drying effect and wipes the palate, leaving hints of the up front flavors lingering altogether.
Bright, cheery hop aroma. Slightly crisp initial flavor which quickly gives way to a luscious sweetness. Finishes fairly clean on the palate except for a very mild lingering sweetness of light malt and yeast.
Strong aroma of fresh, green hops. Taste is a mix of hops and caramel malt. A bit to strong on the caramel malt for my taste. Finishes fairly clean/dry with lingering mix of caramel malt and green hop taste.
Strong sweet aroma of fruit and a sweet treat. Flavor has a crisp bite from hops intermixed with malt and yeast, that gives saliva glands a kick and immediately becomes mouth-watering. Aftertaste is a mild one of hops in background with a bit of mild malt taste. Overall finish is very dry.
Faint fruit juice aroma. Taste continues the juice impression, but combined with a mild IPA in the background. Finishes with some light malt flavors, a bit of hop bitterness, and the slight grapefruit juice taste.
Rated at the edge of being old. Canned 2/9/2022, tasted on 7/28/2022.
Clean crisp aroma of hops and a bit of yeast sweetness. First taste slices through the palate cleanly with a hoppy edge and mild caramel malt sweetness right behind it. Finishes cleanly with a nice yeast flavor showing up, again supported by hop bitterness and mild caramel malt. Amazing flavor balance of all three with a full flavor punch that somehow doesn’t feel too heavy.
Nice clean aroma of bitter hops. Crisp hop bitterness on front of palate work a cleansing attack. Mike caramel malt hidden in background behind layers of hop flavor and bitterness. Lingering hip bitterness intermixed with a slight yeast twang. Superb.
Phenomenal carbonation, glad it’s a giant stream of steady little bubbles everywhere. Sweet aroma of nice stone fruit hops. Taste is sweet, almost puckering, with juicy hop flavor. Slight drying on the palate from the yeast on the back end, then leaves mouth fairly dry with just a hint of hops in background.
Sweet aroma of resinous hops and caramel malt. Crisp taste with a great balance of hop bite and caramel malt flavor. These two work together in perfect balance to be strong flavored of both, but neither overpowering. Spectacular.
5 out of 5 stars.
