3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Copperfields. Pours a bright orange amber with a nice white head- sticky. Hoppy dank simcoe hops- piney and citrus with some grapefruit- orange zest and a phenolic belgian yeast. Doughy malt flavor, some cookie dough, yeasty phenolic, with good sappy simcoe hops, tropical fruits, orange zest, a bit soapy and oily- juicy hops- clean and lightly bitter finish. I seemed to like this more than most.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft. Pours an amber orange body with a white head. Hoppy pine musky dank dingy malt character, tastes like a dirty line with stank malt build up. This was downright bad, not further explanation needed.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Citi Field. Pretty generic, mild sticky malt, with a husky, prickly mouth feel. Minor hop complexity. The carbonation is a bit high to be good for a ball game as it is a little rough to drink.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Citi: honestly a very good APA. Pours a ornagy copper, leaving a full, thick, wet head. Taste is complex with some clear malt notes that are balanced with a mild spice and some citrus. Some pine notes, also some caramel... very drinkable, easy body.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is floral hops, some citrus, slight sweetness from caramel malt. The appearance is a red/gold color, with a white head. The flavor is reminiscent of a pale ale, citrusy, earthy, caramel. The finish is one of the nicer aspects of the beer, a refreshing citrus/grapefruit bitterness. Medium/thin mouthfeel. Decent overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Citi Field. Clearly the winner of the Citi Field beers. Aroma of spicy hops with a good dose of biscuit malt. Flavor again quite spicy as well as more grainy than the aroma would indicate from the malt base. Tasty.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Best at Citi Field. Aroma is sweet hops. Flavor similar. Refreshing and only one worth getting.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Copperfield’s: (and it’s only supposed to be at the stadium...HA!) Rusty golden pour with a dense white film of head. Grainy aroma with a touch of fruity esters and an empty papery citrus note. Decent mild carbonation- typical Brooklyn profile with some papery grains and a fruity ester note. The hops are there but very subdued with restrained citrus notes and a watered down berry note. All of these beers brewed for establishments around the city all taste quite similar.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Citi Field. Pours amber with a thick white head. The best beer served at Citi Field, and the only one worth getting (unless you want to tick of course). Anyway, some citrus hops, toasted and caramel malts. Very drinkable, especially on a hot summer day.
