3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy blonde-tan. Lightly fruity-spicy aroma, with a light pale malt nose. Low bitterness. A bit of acidity makes the body seem a bit thin. OK - the hops are underwhelming but there is some dryness. The malts are sweetish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ St Augustines Vancouver. Hazy gold, nice lace. Great citrus character in aroma! Kumquat, navel orange. Meat, pith, and peel. Resinous hops. Light on the palate. Remains very resinous. Huge citrus character is refreshing. Very interesting

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Kind of a spicy bubblegummy yeast nose, somewhat phenolic on top of peppery earthy hops as well as a little citrus. Pours golden amber, thin creamy head in a plastic cup. The flavor is rather straightforward with sweet spicy phenolic yeast, a touch of bready sweet malt, bubblegummy notes and peppery, earthy hops with a sharp citrus kick in the finish.
