3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2008 12 oz bottle. Pours a whitish head of good duration with extensive lacing, over a hazy dark golden body ....nose is of grapefruit, resin, pine....tastes initially of mild malts, then lingering moderate citrusy bitterness. Mouth feel is moderately heavy. I guess this was dry hopped using Cascade or Centennial as at least part of the recipe. This is a fine example of an APA.
