4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear copper with a thin foamy light beige head. Lovely lovely bitter floral resin aroma featuring a little sweet melon and grapefruit. Well balanced but bitter forward flavor of floral resins, a touch of pine, and a thorough toffee undertone. Really swell and with a complex and satisfying hop flavor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled at the brewery. Clear with just a little copper in the gold. An off white ring. I smell fruit and some cattiness. A big alcohol blast hits hard and early. Bitterness is fairly big and there is a lot of trical fruit. Cattiness is minimal in the flavor and the hops are more subtle than I expected.
