1.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
RBSG 2016 grand tasting. Pale, with IPA aromas. First is is what else? IPA. But hey, I see it’s supposed to be an APA. I’d say we are definately in the IPA territory fer sure. Ubiquitous IPA effects all round. Terribly on style for an IPA, if it was one. Long bitter chewing on green greapefruit rinds mixed with pine tar and spruce needles finish. Can’t really identify the blood orange in this.

Pours a hazy golden orange on tap with fluffy off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of mild bready malts and light clean citrus notes. Taste follows, more of the citrus, light bitterness, more than the nose here. Pretty decent.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I am not getting much aroma (but that might be due to slight cold). When pouring, I got a pine scent. Color is a muddied orange with a off-colored head. Getting a lot of orange rind, with a pine resiny hops. Does have some citrus hop flavors too. A lot more bitter than anticipating for a pale ale. Maybe slightly more bitter for the flavor than I would like.
