4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Bottleworks, Seattle; bottled Feb 11 ’14
Golden color, hazy, with the light of the sun; the head is small. The aroma is nice, but not deep; more was expected, maybe because the bottle is 3 months old; some fruit salad, not specifically citrusy. Good note, the mouthfeel is quite lean and highly drinkable; the malts are subtle, with light toffee notes; and the hopping is perfect, mostly fruity, with original notes of guava and mango; moderately sweet body, well integrated with the strong bitterness; the final is slightly more resiny, a nice biting end, some sweet orange too.
A bit expensive (6.56$ after tax, 37cl) but very nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Aaron’s Wedding Eve Shindig. Lightly hazed golden beer with white foam. Pretty solid pine and grapefruit rind on the tongue. Maybe a bit of tangy tropical fruits? There’s a big of a sweet malt and fruit character to the flavor. Nice bitter pine and citrus along with a bit of a zest/peel quality. A little oily.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours gold with a foamy white head. Aroma of green veg/hop and light fruits. Med + body. Flavor is dankish with crazy fruits and some supporting caramel. It’s mosaic, but has lots of citrus too. Some quaffs make me think of sliced cactus. Very strongly flavored without a hint of heat. Very, very hoppy and tasty. Not to mention nicely bitter.

Tap at Crux. Pours a low haze gold with webby lacing. Nose is peach, mango, tropical melons, sticky, dank. Taste is sugary tea, very sweet as usual for Crux. Melon juice, soft bitterness. Dense, cloying sugar. For Crux, it is one of their better beers. But hot damn this sugar problem needs to be fixed.
