3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. A clear, dark golden beer with a white head. Very peachy nose, some pale malts escaping the glass. Lots of pine cones too. Very soft on the palate, full to medium body. A good bitterness supports the light sweetness, else mostly fruity. Long finish. Might be too much to drink all night, but the occasional glass is fine. 130813

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Beachwood Long Beach. Poured clear golden with spotty lace. Nose is hop resin, sticky, butterscotch. Taste is skunky lemon (?), lime, biting tannins like sucking on wool. Pretty much a palate wrecker. Too tannic for me.

enjoyed on tap at The Blue Palm. A nice drinking pale, with the bitterness that used to be considered an IPA in the old days. Good retained foam on yellow, very lacy. Good aroma of hops. Great beer anytime.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at GABF. Clear golden in color with a one finger white head. Citrus and floral hops on the aroma with some pale/biscuit malt evident. The flavor could use a little more bite but is still good. Balanced malt and hop profile, with mild bitterness and citrus notes. Medium-bodied with average carbonation. Pretty good attempt overall.
