3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear brilliant golden with a thick foamy creamy head. Grassy and piney hop forward nose without much sweetness or maltiness. Big bitter flavor with a big leafy hop tone and a little pine resin, tastes bigger than 4.2. Complex hop presence but without any maltiness more complex than ’golden grains’, it’s just not too exciting.
