3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear pour, orange amber beer, medium fluffy off-white head. Nose is pretty hoppy, herbal-grassy and metallic notes. Flavor is hops forward, citric and orange peel notes, malty caramel somewhere in the back, finish has some lemon peel and grapefruit bitterness. Lingering citric-herbal bitterness. Simplistic, not bad and hides the ABV pretty well, but on the whole it’s pretty mediocre. Maybe more of the caramel sweetness to balance out the herbal hops.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Queen Anne Beer Hall. Pours hazy burnt golden amber with thick white head that laces well. Aroma is dry crystal malt, bright grassy hops, hint of lemony tartness on the back. Taste is clean lightly roasty caramel malt, with dry earthy crisp hops for balance. Drier and less sweet than a typical West Coast IPA. ABV is appropriate for the style and well hidden. Tasty beer.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2015 On tap at Epcot F&W Fest 2015. Hazy copper color, thin white head. Sweet melon aroma with a resinous hop taste, bit of dirt. Average bitterness with a sweety aftertaste. Not much malty taste. High carbonation, medium palate. Surprising taste for a german beer.
