3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Malt aroma is surprising in the mix with the hops on the nose. I think there is too much cara in the mix here, I think it is just a bit too much on the overall profile. On the sweeter, maltier style of pale ales if you’re into those you might like this one. For me, not a fan, but I would try it on tap.

Draft at Arundel Mills. Pours hazy copper with a thin off white head and minimal lacing. Tastes like creamy orange citrus, pine, hoppy and musky. Low/medium body and carbonation. Smells like resin, leather, earthy.

Fruity aroma,clear dark amber with MASSIVE head. As much as I tried, I could not get a good pour. Very effervescent, even straight out of the bottle. Medium body with a bitter hoppy taste and finish.

Taste is really nice - very lightly sweet, biscuity, caramel malt with a light but vibrant citrus hop note, a bit piney. Really nice. Up there with Alchemy as my favorites from the visit.

Good hop bite in this ale. Refreshing and flavorful. Seemed a bit on the hoppy side, but not overpowering.
