3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed at gabf 2014. It pours with a deep crystal clear gold body that supports a thin off white head. The aroma is kind of a sweet mix of toffee and a sense of caramel malts blending with a modest pine hoppiness. The tastes is nice as it starts with sweet malts and a dash of caramel and then it tosses up a big dose of smooth pine hoppiness. To midway those notes pick up just a bit of citrus hop flavor backed up by some malt sweetness. The sweet malts and caramel malts don’t seem to work all that well here as they pull the flavor apart. But these notes do help blend and smooth out the firm resiny pine hoppiness into a pretty decent experience. OK, another one I’m not really sure what to think. Hmm.

Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma seems to be unusual fruits with citrus. Med + body. Flavor is lots of hop and light caramel. Hop approaches dank, seems earthy, fruity, maybe spicy. Finishes hoppy and bitter.

a dank, fruity citrus bomb with the high bitterness offset by a very pleasant sweeter flavor and finish.
