4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver, 6.4% ABV
Red-amber color, clean, with small head. The aroma is fruity, of unusual kind, with some redcurrant, followed by some sweaty hops, ending with a very light mint impression.
Soft mouthfeel, round, with fair sweetness; the malt flavor is good, without caramel or other declinations that may cover too much the hops; plenty of fruits, mango, strawberries, red forest berries; strong bitterness. Long final.
Without knowing the ABV it would be a very good American Strong Ale, very fruity and balanced. Maybe a bit too sweet to be really easy to drink, but very pleasant in smaller quantities.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Central Market, 4/28/14
Aroma: The nose has some clean citrus hops with some light pine notes
Appearance: This one pours a clear orange-amber color with a frothy beige head
Flavor: The taste is medium sweet, kind of fruity, citrus zest, with a light-medium bitter finish
Palate: The body is light for the style, with a soft-to-average carbonation, and a lightly dry finish
I was expecting more of a fresh citrus aroma based purely off the name. There’s citrus here, but more so in the flavor than the nose. It is also a lighter, less bitter example of the style compared to most. I’d call it good, but not great.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours clear orange amber with a sandy head. Aroma and flavor both bring candy orange sweetness and a zesty ending. The combo of two of my favorite hops is delicious, on a juicy body.
