3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Standard Market, June. Cloudy amber color, a spongy head just a pinky finger wide. The PNW hops can be easily detected while the glass is still on the counter, growing in orange citrus character. Nose has more fresh hops up close. Taste is an upfront punch of orange juice and pine needles, and heavily bitter. More prickly carbonation. The strong hop palate remains as an afterburn.

Fresh can to tulip. Mostly clear caramel color with an average white head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma is pineapple. mango, melon, orange zest and a bit of a mustiness. Taste is loaded with pine and citrus. Tropical fruits as well. Some of that slight musty flavor is in the background, in a good way. Decently juicy and a semi dry finish. Nice beer.

Aroma is soft and sweet oranges, grapefruit and tropical notes overall. Taste is really tropical fruits deluxe. Really up there with sweet and ripe fruits ready for picking. Soft carbonation, maybe even a little low on carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice aroma of fresh citrus, grapefruit, slightly catty in a good way. Light orange color with a fluffy white head. Sweet malt up front. Lots of citrus orange, on the sweet side, almost starburst sweet. Bitterness cuts in but not enough. Somewhat piney with a bit of spice. Finish is slightly stronger than mild bitterness that lingers a bit. Light to medium mouthfeel. O.k.
