3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a fresh growler @ home. Still nice carbonation. Pours deep golden amber, persistent white head, moderate lacing. Huge fresh citrus and pine aroma that can be smelled across the room. Taste is a nice balance of sweet malt with super resiny, piney hop bite. Finish is a bit sticky, but pleasantly dry.

Keg @ Champion. The pour’s medium amber with a small head. The nose is punctuated by strong sweet malts, toffee. Pissy hoppy funk, lemon. Similar flavors. Pine needle, sherbet. Toasty sweet malty body in support. Easy to drink, medium body. Fairly solid.

Draft at the brewery. Pours a hazy dark orange color with a thin creamy white head. Good head retention. Big hopy aroma with citrus, mango and tropical hops with pale crackery malts. The taste is bitter resin and citrus hops with strong caramel malts. Medium bodied, decent balance, lingering bitterness. Solid beer.
