3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at sb. Pours a cloudy medium amber with a dense and creamy white head. Lots of lace. Ridiculously explosively delicious nose of mango, pineapple, grapefruit, and peaches. Creamy medium body with soft carb, but the keg was just tapped and isn’t quite cool yet. My score is probably one or two tenths low. Lightly toasted caramel, mango, and pineapple on the mid palate. Long tropical fruity finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at The Pine Box in Seattle, WA.
Pours a hazy goldn copper color with amber edges and a two finger off-white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.
Floral hop aroma with a nice balance of earthy and sweet citrus/tropical fruit notes. Lots of grapefruit and orange peel countered by grassy pine needle and pale malt.
Medium bodied with a blast of dank juicy hops that linger over the sweeter notes and pale malt into a long dry finish. Huge citrus/tropical fruit presence with lots of grapefruit, mango, pineapple and orange peel sweetness which is countered by some dry, bitter pine needle flavor. Complex hop profile with a subtle pale malt backbone providing further balance. Hints of bread, biscuit and toffee toward the finish. Really well balanced, flavorful and easy to drink. Tastes more like a west coast IPA than a pale ale.
