3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler- from cask newly filled thanks to ygtbsm94. The pour is not looking so hot losing carbonation quickly after opening- my penalty for getting to the tasting late. It is a flat, clear amber to deep gold with no head formation. Aroma is very fresh, dank hops with big tropical notes like cantaloupe and pineapple and spicy ginger. Taste is fresh, oily, fruity, hoppy, rich. Palate is thicker, warming, spicy. No cloying sweetness, syrupiness or cheesy/old hop nastiness. Really good stuff.

Draft at Churchkey. Pours a clear amber color with a medium plus sized white head. The aroma has earthy, resiny and mild citrus hops with some caramel and mild fruit notes. The flavor is similar; resin and dank hops, mild citrus, toasted malts with a splash of caramel and a touch of fruit. Decent, but something kept it from being a standout.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Frisco Grille, Columbia: Pours a transparent deep golden bronze with a stringy-lacing white head. Aroma of fresh abundant resiny grapefruity hops with some pale malty sweetness underneath. Starts with good fullness and a nice light caramely sweetness with lots of assertive citrusy bittering and flavor hops before a drier, crisp bittersweet finish. Very flavorful, yet well balanced and quite hoppy hiding its alcohol well.

Bottle. Cheers to Adam for the generous pour. The appearance is deep orange with a tiny head. The nose is strong pacific citrus hops. Some general grapefruit and orange. A bit of sweet captain crunch cereal and honeyed bread. The taste is more citrus fruits. Grapefruit. Some menthol cigarette. Grass finish. Pretty chunky malt profile. A bit syrupy. Some caramel. Heavy body. Fine carbonation. Overall, decent. Sort of flabby.
