3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ the brewery. Pours clear darker golden with thin head. Aroma is tannic, earthy hops. Clean earthy, grassy hop taste with sharply bitter finish that fades quickly. Notably thinner malt body than Trickster or even Totem. Nice fresh taste but just a few too many off notes. Not sure what hops they used here.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bright clear lighter honey golden with tight slightly off white head that settles down to thin creamy ring and leaves subtle lacing. Looking forward to trying a mosaic hop beer after all the talk about this new hop. Nose is stewed green pine needles and celery with a lightly soaped sweaty gym sock. No real malt character to speak of, but that’s alright with me. Light pine, hint of lemon balm, more forward with the light soap any stewed sweatiness.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear light amber color with ivory sheen. Dank, fresh spicy hop, cat spray aromas. medium body with average co2. Lightly sweet grainy pale malt base brew flavors with very mild floral, spicy hops--after the fresh dank aromas the flavor was a bit of a letdown---not too bad tho
