3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice dark crystal color wit a lot of fruity forest flavours. The taste is quite belgium flavoured but with much more hops :) As always with Anderson Valley the backside of the bottle is pretty accurate about what i think it tastes like. Copper tints, citrus aroma’s, fresh redwood needles, bitter and rich of malts and the hoppy afterflavour stays long and is great. Again a great Anderson Valley brew!

Copper color, good creamy, white and long lasting head. Pine, mango, peach in the strong, strong aroma. Strong body, alcohol amazingly masked, creamy mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Balanced finish. Taste is complex and deep: good fresh bitter front, smooth sweet caramel and biscuit in the background.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the Boulevard: Appeared as a solid golden liquid with a frothy thick head that foamed up like shaving cream. My nose is instantly gratified with a heavy dosage of floral hops that scream of citrus fruit such as grapefruit while scents of pine and sweet onion. As for the drink, an intense flavor of bitterness takes me over and puckers my mouth and face up as if I took a bite out of a lemon along with its peel. Very strong hops dominate this beer and bring out other notable taste such as lemon/lime zest, acidic grapefruit juice and touch of sweetness from the forgotten malts used.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an amber color with a nice off white head that staid a while before leaving a ring and some lacing around the glass. Aroma of citrus sweet candies and hops. Flavors of hops, malts, yeast, citrus, herbs and hints of caramels. Creamy in mouth, nice smooth long bitterness, medium to full body. the end was more of a light sweet bitterness. But somehow, tastes started to be less present around the end.
