3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1 Pint can: Aroma has got a big hop note to it. Big on the citrus (grapefruit) and resin notes. Appearance is a clear golden with a hint of amber and a thick off white head that lingers. Taste is pretty good stuff a little too resin like and a bit sticky in the mouth, but all around not that bad at all. Palate is sticky in the mouth and a lingering bitter aftertaste with the slightest amount of grapefruit lingering. Overall, It’s good stuff. I could dink another of these. Cheers!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an hazy amber reddish color. Nose is citrus and pine, with a tangerine and peach nose predominating, quite pleasant nose. Taste is all citrus with very heavy bitterness at first than settles down quite delightfully. Finish is moderately long with some sweetness. Nice ! Quaff Score 8 / 10

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This draft brew from a beer festival poured a small sized head of fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were and left behind a hazy yellow orange colored body. The aroma was mild hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The nice flavor contained notes of hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Canned. Dark orange with a very large, frothy, off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit and nectarine flesh, light spruce, orange zest and light black pepper. Mildly bitter flavor at first; bitterness increases slightly through the finish. Notes of raw straw and dried grasses pop in and out. Aftertaste has mild flavors of bready sourdough and black tea. Caramel malts become more pronounced as it warms and breathes a bit. A solid offering. Thanks to Narnad for the can.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours an orange hued amber with a soapy off-white head tha tleaves rings of whisply lacing down the glass and settles in to sporadic clumps. Quite citrusy aroma with some sweet sugary floral notes. Somewhat light bodied with a significant dry bitterness. Not bad and the lingering bitterness is pleasant but lacks a little punch of flavor that would put it over the edge.
