3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Glad to have found this as fresh as it can probably come. Very dark crystal clear amber pour with a small amount of head. Nose is a complex blend of heady fruity hops and tropical citrus notes along with sugary toasty malts and caramels. Flavor lends a pleasant but intense fruity hop and dark sugary malt blend. bitterness is moderate but not lingering. I liked it.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Light amber body. Fizzy, off-white head. Raw, leafy hop aroma with notes of toasted grain, citrus, orange and a hint of caramel and metal. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, oily texture, moderate carbonation. Lots of raw hop flavor balanced by sweet malts. Chewy rather than crisp. Ragged, but interesting.
