3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Aster Cafe on their high quality patio. Pint glass. Inching closer to 1,000. Minimal off white head on a golden orange colored, relatively clear looking ale. Aroma is mostly piney with a fake lemony, citrus candy quality. Taste leans heavy into the bitter hop realm but does have a malty characteristic to offer up more body and some sweetness. Citrus comes through as well. Decent bite from the hoppy notes aligning itself well with the beer’s name. Nothing amazing here.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Somewhat attractive appearance. Hazy golden body with a substantial white creamy head. Nose is citrus, orange, artificial candy. Big apricot flavor. Got to give this some props for originality. Interesting brew. Not over the top hoppy, but I’m kind of digging this.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
16 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured cloudy, golden, with a nice off white head and a lot of lacing. Aroma is citrus fruit, pine and some caramel. Taste is slightly bitter, sweetness from malts, fruit and grain, a bit boozy. Decent beer, quite drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
473ml can. This one seems a bit on the older side, amberish pour, citrus and dank but a lot of maltiness, not entirely that oxidized but old-tasting.

Tap at aster cafe. Dark gold with thick white head. Clean hop pine aroma. Crisp, drying, and hop taste throughout. Medium body, typical of the style. Standard ipa, but pretty good.
