3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from mdg164, thanks Marc for the throw-in! Pours a clear golden orange with a white head leaving plenty of streaks of lace. Aroma has fresh fruit and citrus and pine and some garlic. Taste is of sweet fruits, grapefruit, garlic and spicy pine. Some light biscuity malts show through eventually. A bit of a muddle of flavors. Medium bodied, and fuller than expected. Finishes much more bitter than sweet, with a touch of the tangy garlic. Solid offering with a confused palate. 13.8

Canned on 07/08/14 so this is pretty fresh. Received in trade from a non RB member. The pour is copper amber with a slight fog and a big head. The aroma is breaded malts with a full earthy and resiny hop profile. The body is medium to heavy. The hop bitterness prevails in this beer and really lingers on at the end.

Pours hazy deep golden, half finger creamy head, excellent lacing. Aroma dank tropical, slight citrus hops, bit of bready sweet malt. Taste bitter all hops, tropical, citrus, slight pine.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very grassy, spicy hop nose on this beer. Pours amber, with a full white head. Lots of hop notes coming through with tropical fruit, grass, and earthiness. The malt is there just to balance out the hops, and gets out of the way. Moderate body, and very easy drinking.
