3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Downtown Joes. Clear orange beer with a sticky white head. Pretty strong orange hop character and some light pine. There’s a good bit of grass, too. Some caramel malt sweetness and bread. There’s a strong malt character to it and a fair amount of sweetness. Fine in terms of the hop profile...good orange peel and flesh. A little on the woody side on the finish.
