3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft… Cloudy, straw-colored ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Great retention. Perfumey, spicy scents of pear, clove and rye. Light to medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Crisp, spicy, dry flavor. Perfectly balanced. The finish is spicy and bone-dry. Not really my thing, but very refreshing, drinkable and interesting.

From JW77. Man a really hoppy aroma and a nvery nice pale gold beer lead to a flavor that is quite unexpected. It smells like a hop bomb but instead is a nice smooth malty and bit funky beer. I really enjoyed it. Very cool
