3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours a gold color with a foamy white head. The nose is very light. All I get from it is some grain notes. The flavor comes across as almost a very clean lager. The hop bitterness adds some depth, but this brew doesn’t seem very multidimensional. Light in body with soft carbonation and a medium finish. Overall it’s a decent session brew, but nothing worth seeking out.

On tap at the Garland Flying Saucer location.
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is bready malt with some citrus hop notes. The flavor is orange and grapefruit with a strong bready malt backbone. Medium bitterness. Light to medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A decent American Pale Ale but nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Beer Temple. Nelson Sauvin hops are really popular these days. And most of the times they make a decent beer out of it. This one fits in the category. Easy going APA.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at Fountainhead. Pours a hazy pale yellow. Nose is grapey and piney at the same time, some caramel as well. On taste, something isn’t quite right. I think there was too much NS used for late additions that pulls a lot of caramel flavor from the crystal malts. Too sweet. Not a fan.
