3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
OBF 2004 Dry hopped version. Medium orange color. Aroma is hoppy and fruity. A medium bodied Pale Ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. VERY hoppy, (Simcoes) grapefruity and piney. Kind of hoppy for a pale ale. Tastes more like a West Coast IPA than anything else. Surprisingly not a lot of bitterness given the hop flavors. Nice beer. Would make a nice hoppy session ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is bitter
