3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
It poured a golden hazy color with a small white head. The aroma was very subtle, but the hops come through a bit with gentle pine and earthy florals. The taste was mildly bitter and malty with a low carbonation. The palate was thin to medium and finishes dry. Very nice.

On tap at the brewhouse. Pours a Coppery color with a fairly thick head that fades to nice lacing. Aroma was a bit mild with some pine and trace of malt and grain. Taste of citrus with a mild malt sweetness and bit of spice in the background. Nice bitterness and a dry finish. medium body, crisp, quite smooth and refreshing. Nicely balanced. Enjoyable beer that goes does easy.

This was thanks for Strykzone at the brewpub before I flew home from my epic weekend plus at Dark Lord Day. Was hazy gold in the glass. Off-white head. Nose is hoppy. Medium body. Flavor shows a lot of bitterness and the finish is both tasty and bitter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A 6 1/2 ounce pour at the brewpub. Very hazy dingy gold. A nice thick off white head that leaves a thick layer on the glass. A fairly sharp biting aroma that has some spice. The flavor resembles that. Spicy characteristics are prevalent. Bitterness is a little heavier than moderate. The hop is acidic and a little lemony. Malts are pale. Fruit is tasted later and is apricot and pear. Some Saaz resemblences in here. The spiciness carries through.
