3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a slightly murky golden amber with one finger head with moderate lacing. Toasted malt, nuts. Very bitter with no sweetness at all. Earthy. Medium body with sticky mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Spruce and herbal hops. Long bitter finish. It’s pretty good, but one dimensional hop character.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Robust aroma is quite hoppy and has firm yeasty, fruity and woody tones. It pours a clear dark amber with a very thick, fluffy, and rather persistent wheat head. Well-rounded flavor has malty, hoppy, fruity and subtle yeasty and woody tones, quite satisfying. Mouthfeel, though, leaves a little to be desired, a bit thin and not too fizzy. Still, when the texture is the weakest point, that is hardly a drawback. Bark for this one!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange pour with a white head. Nose is floral and piney with some sweet citrus notes. Sweet bread and toffee malt notes, a bit of grass, and mild peach. Flavor is on the sweet side, but more in the way of the sugar and fruit kind of sweetness. Toffee and caramel malt, peach, and sweet oranges. Floral hops, mild pine bitterness, and some hints of grass.
