3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Volo, March 5. Pours a bubbly deep orange-copper with an average size lasting frothy white head. Aroma of Citra hops, fruity and citrusy, along with pale malt -- simple but nice. Flavour follows the aroma, citrusy and fruity hops along with pale malt and just a touch of grain. Average bitter finish. Average bodied. A simple but pleasant, easy to drink Pale Ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[4339-20120318] Tap. Woody citrus peat aroma has a bit of toasted evergreen. Slightly hazy, amber brown body with a quick foamy off-white head. Bitter peaty citrus wood continues in the flavour with a hint of cat pee. Medium-full body. Tasty and bitter, just a touch too much pee-like notes but quite good. (7/3/7/4/15) 3.6
Overheard: "It’s nice."

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the Brewery Market. Deep amber pour with a tight off-white head. The aroma is great. Loaded with juicy citrusy hops and an almost tropical component as well. The malt base has a lovely softness but manages to remain dry. No apparent crystal malt but isn’t all pale malt in the base. Moderate bitterness that balances the malt well. This was the first keg to kick and it’s not hard to see why. Delicious.
