3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shaker Pint draft at the Brewery. Pour is cloudy orange copper with a minimal off white head. Moderate lacing. Served pretty cold, as it warmed, opened up with aroma of fresh, dank resin citrus and pine hop bitterness. Fair amount of toasty malt in there too. Nicely balanced. Taste is fresh hop bitter goodness. The citrus (grapefruit and orange), resin and pine all play together nicely. The malt is there to provide a stable backbone. Fresh and tasty. Palate thin to medium, drying, crisp clean and very drinkable.
