3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beautiful unfiltered dark orange. Nose is a bit muted, but citric hops slwly make their way to the top. In the mouth it’s a little more lively. Resonablt full bodied for a sub 5% beer. Medium length citrus hop finish .Not so complex. Good easy drinking. WIth maybe a few more IBUs and a piney hop to offset the citrus this could be a real champ.

Dark orange body with thin head. Nice hoppy aroma which carries through to the taste with a faint hint of smoke in the aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A bit murky in the glass (rusty apricot) but authentic for the style and holds a consistent. albeit thin, head. Nose is lean and shows herbal hops and only the faintest touch of malt. Palate is similar; lean and linear with dry herbal hops and decent bitterness. I like what it is trying to do but needs a bit more oopmh to get going.

Quite a nice looking beer... Nice off white head, although that settles to a thin line quite quickly. Aroma seems a little muddled... I get some lychee, grass, pine, pawpaw...sort of like a fruit salad. But I also get some fusels.... Palate is a little thin, but nice mouthfeel. Bitterness is a little harsh, but not all that bad...
Carbonation is nice, and overall, pretty good.
