3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Black Shirt. Pour is clear orange with a frothy off-white head and great lacing. Bready, caramelly, slightly grassy aroma - biscuit, fruit peel, and floral hops. Taste is pretty bland - malty, bready, slightly hoppy, caramel, weedy, slightly soapy and earthy with a light hop bite on the finish. Light body with high carbonation. Not a bad amber.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy amber with a sticky laceful foamy head. Great amber aroma of sticky caramel, floral hops, resiny hop notes, and sweet citrus. Taste is moderately bitter with a resinous earthy hop tone, strong biscuit yeastiness, and a slightly astringent earthy caramel malt backbone. Kinda letdown, actually.

Simultaneously too sweet and too bitter - sharp acidity throughout - a lot of sugary sweet malt flavor, light esters - hops are peppery, bitterness is astringent - hops are peppery and mildly earthy - overall very one dimensional - kind of meh.
