2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Orange pour in a sample glass at Fate. This is an overly malty, somewhat off putting beer. Green coffee, not enough hops. Weird.

Pale golden pour. The nose is fruity and citrusy with grapefruit and a touch of soft spice. Dry, but perceptible malt flavour rounding out the back of the palate. A little bit of moderate clean bitterness and some lingering spice. Crackery and delicious. A great APA

On tap at Beer Republic during SF Beer Week, what a week! Pours copper with gold edges and near white head. The aroma has modest levels of spicy hops, a touch of citrus and then some floral at the aromatic periphery. The taste is nice and crisp and fresh with spicy hops and then it gets sort of floral with bittering floral hops and then a light amount of floral flavor hops. Yummers.
