Taster on nitro tap at Black Acre brewpub. Mostly clear, golden orange color. Thin, sort of white head, with good retention. Good, thicker lace. Caramel malt, light metallic. Smooth, creamy, very light carbonation. Lightly sticky finish. Mostly dry. Moderate sweet, lightly zesty. Good rindy citrus notes. Decent English IPA, but not great.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nitro tap. Creamy plans pillowy tan head. Dark bar so in couldn’t make out the hue very well but it looked to be about the color of a Werther’s Original. Extremely subtle aroma, can barely describe it in words here. Someone else described the taste perfectly here - it really takes a few seconds for the hops to kick in. Semibitter resin finish, a little less hop punch than I usually enjoy. Solid but not amazing.

Draft at boulder beer taproom DIA. Pours golden with an inch of khaki foam. A little bit of pine on the tongue. Has some really crunchy pine cone flavor on the tongue. Finished a little dry. Solid.

Tap. Wow- this was a pleasant surprise. It was a medium gold color without much head or lacing. It had very nice malt flavors up front and mild carbonation. A touch of hop flavor snuck in as the malt mellowed. Not a whole lot of bitterness and little aftertaste. Nice clean finish. I liked this one a lot.

Slight pine & hops aroma. Not too much to smell. Amber/golden in color with a creamy.off white head. Almost nutty but still hop filled in taste. Pine over rides it all, Tasty.

Tap at Old Chicago. Pour is a hazy orange with thick, lasting white head. Aroma is citrus and floral hops, taste matches the aroma. Really solid.

16oz nitro pour at RFD in DC. Pours a slightly hazy, darker orange with some very cream, lacing white head. I thought the aroma was very nice, clearly a British take on the style, lots of fall fruit, some root veg, standard pine, lemon. some dried leaves. Flavor is malty and sweet, roasted parsnip, pear, lemon, orange, pine. Clean finish. Creamy in the mouth. I thought this was excellent.
