3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy dark golden with a slight copperish hue under a foamy white head. Wonderful nose of fresh picked hops and floral resins. The taste has an unfortunate slight touch of vegetal green-ness, but it’s quickly quelled by floral fresh hops and a little earthy resin, backed by some sweet pale ale malts. Amazingly balanced but still kinda color-in-the-lines.
