3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
31st October 2015
Light haze on this gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is light and mildly dry and has a fine crispness. Smooth malts, lightly sweet with a nice amount of cream. Resinous piney hops and spicy orange. Bitterish orange peel. Little tangerine. It’s a smooth hop profile, but with muscle. Finishes semi dry with hop spice and peel bitterness lingering on. Nice one.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Clean golden hue with good head and lace. Grapefruit pithy and piney earthliness on top of pale biscuity malts with a touch of wine notes from the Nelson Sauvin. Aggressive and brash even at a month old. Controlled dankness and minerally notes too. I think this is my favorite of the 4 hoppy brews from them so far. (Shockingly ’cause I am not a fan of the Nelson)

Pour on tap at Boneyard, slightly hazy orange-red pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of orange, grapefruit, pine into some caramel, toffee notes, slight floral hops as well. Taste was a mix of floral, pine, and orange, some grapefruit in there as well into a hint of spice, lots of caramel, toffee, finishing fairly bitter.

Bottle pour at home, brought this back from San Diego. Nice golden pour, hops and Barley aroma, decent bit and carbonation. The flavors really come out at the end with citrus and good hop flavor not overwhelming. I enjoyed trying this one.
