3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle, from Mondial de la Bière shop, Mulhouse Sep 2012. Pours a murky orange, immediate fresh orange marmelade aroma, substituted by rather peachy and mango flavours than indistinct blood orange. Nice and dryish palate working in accord with sweet malt base and bitter c-hops. Easily sessionable, great light APA with the quality malt and hop base of a diluted IPA.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2014 Bomber at Lake Wenatchee 7/20/2013
Red-orange pour, foamy head. Pine, citrus, orange juice aroma. Blood orange and juicy hops in the flavor. Soapy bitterness on the long finish. Nice before-noon drinker, mimosa for the beer set. 7/4/8/4/15=3.8
Revist at home, 12 oz bottles 4/21/14.
Lighter than red-orange pour this time (was I imagining before, or has it changed?) Not aggressive at all, but the orange and citrus hops blend just right to make for a delicious beer. Super-drinkable. Bump to 7/4/8/4/16=3.9
(One of many) revisit(s) 5/28/14. OMFG. I suddenly get it. I had no idea what Prufrock was talking about when he described a mustard thing going on that ruins this beer -- now I totally get it. This one has mustard all up in your face on the front end of the beer. I can’t really pin in down to a particular hop or other ingredient, nor can I even specify other beers that suffer from the same. I guess it’s a characteristic of a few APAs that push too far out along a spectrum I would normally describe as metallic, but even that I’m not sure of. In any case, yeah, a ton of mustard detracts significantly.
