Glass: tulip

First Impression: Clever packaging may be its best quality. I’d rather have a great beer with poor packaging, like DFH. Not bad, not the best, but certainly not watery or tasteless. Very nice color and texture. Aroma is flowery, mellow. Visuals are a thick long lasting white head on a copper body. Taste is hops and some sweetness. Very bitter, and I like that. Palate is dry, slightly sticky, with a long, enjoyable aftertaste.

Second Impression. The $2 single makes for an affordable 6 pack, and this isn’t bad. It’s not Hop Devil, but it might only cost $7 for a six. I’ll take another look sometime.

Aroma: 7 out of 10

Visuals: 4 out of 5

Taste: 8 out of 10

Palate: 4 out of 5

Overall: 13 out of 20
