Although this is not a traditional warm-weather seasonal release, the folks at Full Sail love to shake things up and push boundaries. Despite the style name, this is a well-balanced and crisp selection that's not overly bitter or strong for summer enjoyment. Sure, the bitter hop aromas and flavors of citrus oil, pine resin and pressed yellow flowers are noticeable throughout, but they're not overdone and they remain balanced by a solid caramel-malt core. Medium bodied, with ample carbonation and a dry finish. Lauren Buzzeo

What Is Blind Tasting?

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
