2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A satisfying hoppy ale that chooses the simplistic approach: Simplify your malts so your hops appear more complex.
Very cloudy appearance. By far their most bitter beer, though it keeps the bready malt dominance and this time, it feels almost wheaty at that. Orange and grapefruity hops cover a satisfying citrus array.
Just like it were from the cask, they kept its carbonation level very low, but it feels like it might add some life to those loose malts here.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sessionable local. Pours a cloudy orange with a nice medium white head. Aroma is nice sharp hops, full of grapefruit and sharp citrus. Flavor is much the same, nice and hoppy. Subtle and simple...but if its good, why overdo it?

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap. Poured a cloudy, pale orange (think Belgian Wit) with no head. Little aroma. Flavor is very hop-forward. Striking, bracing bitterness but not much in terms of balance. Sticky, chewy, resinous palate. Not my favorite.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours light golde orange with a small white head. Aroma is piney hops and some herbal notes with a pronounced biscuit and sweet grainy note. Flavor starts sweet and a touch of citrus though not much. Quickly picks up a sharp piney and earthy bitterness that ride through the finish. Medium body and crisp carbonation. Not the best balance overly bitter and bit flavorful enough but ok

Had this on tap at the brewpub but was in town for a wedding with a lot of family and didn’t take good tasting notes beyond the numbers. I do have down that this was my favorite offering of theirs, though.

Draught at brewpub. Orange body. Slight orange taste. Not a strong hop presence overall. Felt it lacked a strong IPA taste.
