3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap sample. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy resin hop and earthy aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and falt carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid drinkable brew that exceeded my expectations.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: Pine and citrus hops with hints of bready malts underneath.
Appearance: Clear orange with a thick, white head.
Taste: Heavy bitterness with a light sweetness underneath.
Palate: Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation with a long finish.
Overall: Not so hoppy as to be obnoxious, but the hops are definitely there. The balance is well crafted and appealing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Fat Head’s - North Olmstead. Very pale golden hazy pour. The nose is quite spicy and fresh with a bit of grapefruit on the back. Softly malty. Fresh and chewy with some assertive pine resinousness on the back of the palate. Quite bitter on the finish. Simple but I like it.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler from Fat Head’s in Cleveland. Delightfully dank, piney hop aroma. Appearance is a pleasing, golden glow (although a bit too carbonated on this go-around). Taste has grown increasingly assertive since I first sampled this beer but it’s a change for the better. Palate has strengthened as well. Quite similar to the the Head Hunter but for a more discernible maltiness and a more complex floral finish as opposed to tongue-wagging bitterness. Awesome beer.

Taster at the brewery in Rocky River... Citrus hops aroma... Flavor was malty with a nice hoppy finish, better than your typical pale ale... Kind of a junior IPA... Pretty good

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the brewpub. The beer pours a clear pale orange color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Piney hops and malt in the nose. Medium body with flavors of resiny hops, pine and malt. The finish is hoppy with a moderately bitter aftertaste that lingers. Decent overall.

On tap at Pitt’s brewpub location. Yellow pour, white head. Piney hops, citrus, slightly floral, with biscuity malt. Very nice and refershing. If 6% can be sessionable, this is a good session beer.
